So you’ve been able to successfully recruit somebody into the demonic cult, I mean hobby, that is Dungeons and Dragons. First of all, congrats! That is by far the most difficult part – at least in theory. The next step, and in fact many of the subsequent steps, is figuring out how to turn random dice rolls into a character who is ready to adventure and explore the realm.
The tabletop gaming community is getting more inclusive. With that come players in groups being open about issues that were not covered in D&D’s conception in 1974. What was once considered a hobby only for white men, the D&D community now sees a host of differing races and genders. So how can you make sure you’re doing your part by making your game inclusive?
Roleplaying in DnD is not always just between the player characters and your NPCs. One often missed experience is the roleplaying that happens between the player characters themselves. Master the Dungeon talks about how DMs can encourage that roleplay.
Have you ever had a bad session as a DM? Did you ever think your story was bad or characters were flat? This happens to even the most experienced dungeon masters. You’ll always have times that you’re not at the top of your game. And you know what? That’s okay. Because being a dungeon master is hard.
Rules are essential to D&D. They are the constraints that allow people to play together and tell you what dice to roll and what happens when you do. Master the Dungeon goes through how to deal with rules in D&D, from both sides of the table.
