What is D&D? Dungeons & Dragons, in case you didn’t know, is a role-playing game. What this means is that you and a few of your friends sit around a table and do some improvisational acting as characters in a fantasy setting, with the other characters played by another friend called the Dungeon Master, who figures out things like the plot ahead of time. To decide how successful you are in your adventures, there’s a complex set of rules, under which tests of skill or strength are governed by the roll of dice. Roll high enough, and your arrow slays the dragon; roll low and watch your shot go harmlessly wide.
