Taking a break from other people‘s stories to tell some of our own with friends. Gilbert is helping me to check for traps.

So The Silent Patient finally moved from my Wait List to Loan status at OverDrive and I can‘t wait to .... ohh look at the pretty pictures ... I‘ve been distracted! Definitely nice artwork. I feel like drawing now. These books are inspirational in more ways than one. Listening to The Silent Patient, paging thru some books & reaching for a sketchbook. Another amazing weekend! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Meanwhile, my friends and I made a group and started D&D 😂

I must say... I regret making fun of it in the past. With the right friends (and maybe a bit of alcohol... but mostly with the right friends...) it‘s a crap ton of fun 😬 Gotta read through this monster (ha, get it...) of a book and learn the ropes!

BekaReid Yes!! I started playing D&D for the first time almost 2 years ago. The right friends do make it amazing and loads of fun! (& a bit of alcohol in the mix is a bonus too 🐉🥂 😉) 3mo
GrilledCheeseSamurai Yaaaaaaaas! Welcome to the bestest game evaaaaaaar! You're right about needing the right people to play with (and the alcohol adds a whole other fun element too). Have so much fun. I've been playing my pretty much my whole life & just love the collaborative story telling of it all! May the dice God's favor you! 🎲 3mo
Pogue I have been playing forever and it is an amazing game 3mo
Stephuhhnieee @BekaReid @GrilledCheeseSamurai @Pogue Woo!! We‘ve only had our first session, and it‘s time crunched since we all have different schedules, but I seriously can‘t wait for the next! Do any of you have any other book/reading recc‘s aside from the handbook?? I‘m a high elf ranger if that also plays into any reading material lol. 3mo
BekaReid @Stephuhhnieee I've not done much other D&D reading outside of the handbook and other source books. This source book is pretty cool and had other ranger subclasses 3mo

1. Yes! I love DnD, it‘s my favorite hobby besides reading. I even run a game for a my parents, brother, and aunt!
2. Lol, yes! I actually have a session scheduled for tomorrow night
3. If you‘re new to the game, I suggest just having fun! Don‘t worry too much about the rules, chances are someone with more experience will help out. Just let yourself relax and enjoy the game!

1) Yep! I‘ve been playing for 6 years now, 4 of those years with the same group. I play a half-elf Cleric / Radiant Servant of Corellon Larethian named Elswyth.
2) Obviously, since I do 😬
3) If possible, play with a couple people who know what they‘re doing. You‘ll get a much better feel for the game from playing than from reading the books. Fun is the name of the game, not rules.

I could really need some inspiration for my new D&D character. I'm trying to come up with their backstory but it isn't really going anywhere. Maybe this train ride will get my creative juices flowing! #dnd #travelreading

Anyone else play D&D? If so, what is the class and race of your character? Mine is a Druid Moon Elf named Annastasia. Feel free to post your concept art and tag me if you'd like! 😊

knittedgnome My son plays D&D weekly at the comic book shop and also plays Pathfinder here with friends. They all seem to have such a wonderful time! 2y

To any D&D players - any tips for a newbie?

2 co-workers and 2 students have decided to start playing D&D during lunch and I‘ve decided to join them! Super excited and nervous.

hermyknee I want to do that!!! Sounds like fun! I‘ve never played, but it looks like a really fun game. 2y
Chrissyreadit No advice. My son wants to learn too. I want to learn also. 2y
LadyChristy I‘ve been playing for years, don‘t be afraid to ask questions and seek out help when you need it. Everyone gets that it‘s challenging being new and your fellow players and DM just want it to be fun for everyone! Other than that, always check for traps, don‘t forget to loot the bodies, and beware of the silent but deadly Gelatinous Cube! You‘ll have a blast! 😁 2y

TheLibrarian @hermyknee @Chrissyreadit I‘ll have to let you know how it goes! 2y
theresidentromantic Don't be afraid to make a character AND BE THAT CHARACTER. You're playing a game, be your game piece! Your not controlling them. Don't say "I ask to do this" look at your DM and ask your question. And don't be afraid to do things your character would do. If you choose to play an ex con, your character might be shadier than you. Play it up! And definitely have fun, don't let anyone rules lawyer you. ❤❤? 2y
TheLibrarian @LadyChristy Thanks for the advice!! I was going to sit in and watch but they convinced me to give it a try. I‘ve played ALOT of WoW and similar games so hopefully that helps me a little. 2y
TheLibrarian @theresidentromantic Thanks for the advice! Becoming my character will probably be the hardest. I‘m super shy and my video game characters tend to be badass so I was planning on making my character similar. 2y
GarthRanzz Oh @GrilledCheeseSamurai I think you are being paged. 😊 2y
GarthRanzz Seriously, I‘ve been playing since I was a kid in the 70‘s but one of our other Scott‘s (tagged above) is our resident DND expert. 2y
Craftylikefox Yay!!!!! I am still a bit of a novice. Bit just have fun! I prefer rogue type characters. I haven‘t been able to play lately because 2 in the group have moved 3 hrs away :( I can‘t wait to hear how it goes and what your character is :) 2y
GrilledCheeseSamurai Ooooh! AWESOME! Have sooooo much fun! Don't worry about being shy! Everyone is when they first play. It's the DM's job to make you feel comfortable. I'd say, just relaxe and always remeber that if you can think it then you can try it! There isn't anything 'you can't do.' don't get caught up in the rules, the GM will worry about that part. Also, make a back up character. Just in case. 😅 2y
GrilledCheeseSamurai Feel free to tag me on any questions or topics in regards to RPG tabletop. I DM alot and have been playing for 30+ years so id love to be a part of your experiences! ❤️👌 2y
GrilledCheeseSamurai And thanks @GarthRanzz for the heads up. 👍 2y
TheLibrarian @Craftylikefox That stinks they moved farther away. Hopefully you can find some new people to play with. 2y
TheLibrarian Thank you so much @GrilledCheeseSamurai ! I might take you up on that offer. Going to try and take a look at the handbook this weekend. I‘m thinking about making a ranger since I‘m used to playing one online. 2y
GrilledCheeseSamurai Ohhh! Rangers are fun! Dump as much as you can into Dexterity and Wisdom! The rest of your stats aren't as important. Also...go either with a bow or duel wield some one handed weapons. If you go with the bow though you have more magic support to choose from down the road. 👍 2y

This one was a no brainer! I'm an unapologetic geek and love me some D&D. I have a group of friends that get together every Sunday so we can and sit around a table and go on grand adventures. I'm usually the GM - meaning I run the game and we have a blast looting dungeons, slaying dragons, and creating legends that span a lifetime! 🤓

MiyakoBunny My eldest got into D&D last year. His Uncle introduced him to it. He wore a cape around unabashed for awhile. I let him ☺️. 2y
GrilledCheeseSamurai @MiyakoBunny haha. That's awesome! I don't have kids myself, but I have friends that do and they have already said they want me to teach them and their friends to play! 😊 2y
MiyakoBunny That would be too cool 😎 I say go for it! 😃😃😃 2y

This is my first foray into D&D. At the recommendation of several people I have started with the 5th edition of the game and I have to say I found it fun and easy to follow.

If you're interested in D&D, it's a ton of commitment but also a ton of fun and I'd also recommend starting with this edition. It's super accessible for such a heavily involved game.

I've got my first D&D meeting tomorrow with some friends so I gotta study up. I'm about half way through the book, have the day off work, and plan to finish it today. So excited someone is going to take me through a game and teach me how to run a campaign 😊

[DELETED] 3803335244 We play this as a family on Sundays! We love D&D! My husband is a Dragon Master, kind of cool! 2y

I'm tired of never finding a D&D group. So I'm going to run my own! As soon as I can wrap my head around the basics 😝

Working on my D&D character's story tonight. We haven't started the campaign yet, but I'm excited to see where this is going to go. We unintentionally all decided to be evil (or self serving) so it should be a lot different from our other RP night with Dragon Age. ❤️

DuckOfDoom Wow that sounds exciting! Evil Characters are so much more difficult to pull of. 3y
InLibrisVeritas @DuckOfDoom It'll either be incredibly cool or it'll devolve into something hilarious. 3y

Today's #brunchwithabook (a bacon, egg and mushroom sandwich!) features the 5th edition of the Dungeons & Dragons Player's Handbook. Even though I no longer have a group to play with, I still love reading through the rule books and creating the occasional character. The 5th edition sees the game return to more of a 'theatre of the mind' approach. Reading these books brings back all sorts of incredible childhood memories.
