Running a game of Dungeons & Dragons, or any tabletop role-playing game, involves telling your players what they see. Players rely on you to give a sense of tone and ambience, but also to point out anything interesting or relevant to their quest. But they also need you to leave them room to ask and explore. A good game master learns how to describe a scene in enough, but not too much, detail.

One way to learn that skill, says redditor non_player on r/RPG, is to turn audio descriptions on when watching movies and TV shows.

If you ever tried to get into tabletop role-playing games - the kind where you sit around with character sheets, describing your actions and rolling dice - it was probably through Dungeons & Dragons. And if you're sick of medieval fantasy, or you don't care about fighting monsters, or you hate looking up stats on different charts, you might have walked away thinking "I guess I don't like RPGs." Which is a shame, because there are thousands of other RPGs out there.

"What Dungeons and Dragons class should I play?" is the kind of question you could answer with a cursory quiz, but that would be a mistake. You owe it to yourself - and to your D&D dungeon master - to think holistically about character class, maybe the most important choice you'll make in a D&D game. Picking the right class can mean the difference between a character you love and a character you cannot wait to bury in a pile of rocks. To have the best time playing D&D, we've made a guide to get you picking which class is right for you.

Once upon a time, I was a wizard named Gandalf. It is an unimaginative moniker, admittedly, but it came from a tween who just finished reading the Lord of the Rings trilogy. As Gandalf, I knew a few common spells, for protection and attack and could speak dwarvish. I declared my alignment to be Lawful Good, naturally and went about my business seeking gold and magical treasure.
