Where to Start: Dungeons & Dragons

New to Dungeons & Dragons or don't know where to start?

  • If you're unfamiliar with Dungeons & Dragons and not sure if it's for you? Grab one of the Starter Sets or Essentials Kits - they contain everything you need to start playing D&D with minimal preparation - it's ready to play out of the box!
  • If you're ready to start running your own adventures with your friends (referred to as the "Dungeon Master" or "DM"), get the Dungeon Masters Guide and the Monster Manual. A DM screen is also recommended as it helps hide your secrets from the other players whilst also serving as a quick reference guide to many common rules that may come up during play.
  • The Players Handbook is perfect for all players & Dungeon Masters, it's a perfect resource for everyone to have handy prior to and during an adventure or campaign - ideally all players should have access to their own Players Handbook.
  • The Core Rulebook Gift Set makes for a great gift for all players of D&D. It contains special editions of the Dungeon Masters Guide, Monster Manual, Players Handbook and a DM Screen - at a great price!
  • Want to start creating your own characters? The Character Sheets are perfect for getting your characters ready to play on your next adventure. Use the Players Handbook to help bring your characters to life!
  • Want to get some younger players involved? Capture their imaginations with the Young Adventurers Guide books. They're fully illustrated with minimal reading level recommended for players aged 8+.
