What Do I Need To Start Dungeons And Dragons? What Do I Need To Buy?


Dungeons and Dragons (also called D&D) is easily the most well known pen and paper RPG out there. You don’t need a computer, all you need to play is some paper for writing and (you guessed it) a pen. But since you’re new to the genre it would be a wise decision to stock up on some items and to my experience it’s incredibly hard to find a good guide for that on the internet so I asked a shop keeper and found some more items on the internet and these are some useful tools you might want to buy before you start Dungeons and Dragons:

  • Dice: speaks for itself.
  • Pen & Paper
  • A Dungeon Master guide
  • Player Handbooks
  • (optional) Board game
  • (optional) Miniatures
  • Monster Compendium
  • Get some friends to play with

The last option might be the hardest because roleplaying a D&D campaign can be quite an akward thing to do without your friends nearby and it is suggested to find a group you feel comfortable playing with. Don’t take the above list as a must though, there’s tons of ways to start with Dungeons and Dragons and it depends on you how you want to play and what you want to buy.
