Hi Scorpio
Maybe you could give a brief insite into this No1 game you are interested in. Getting more players to join would be better if they knew the basics ?

Cheers

Bill

Thanks Bob :-"

Dungeons & Dragons is a structured yet open-ended role-playing game. It is normally played indoors with the participants seated around a table-top. Typically, each player controls only a single character, which represents an individual in a fictional setting.[12][13] When working together as a group, these player characters (PCs) are often described as a ‘party’ of adventurers, with each member often having his or her own areas of specialty that contributes to the success of the whole.[14][15] During the course of play, each player directs the actions of his or her character and its interactions with the other characters in the game.[16][17] A game often continues over a series of meetings to complete a single adventure, and longer into a series of related gaming adventures, called a ‘campaign’.[18]

The results of the party's choices and the overall storyline for the game are determined by the Dungeon Master (DM) according to the rules of the game and the DM's interpretation of those rules.[19] The DM selects and describes the various non-player characters (NPCs) the party encounters, the settings in which these interactions occur, and the outcomes of those encounters based on the players' choices and actions.[17][20] Encounters often take the form of battles with 'monsters' – a generic term used in D&D to describe potentially hostile beings such as animals or mythical creatures. The game's extensive rules – which cover diverse subjects such as social interactions,[21] magic use,[22] combat,[23] and the effect of the environment on PCs[24] – help the DM to make these decisions. The Dungeon Master may choose to deviate from the published rules[19] or make up new ones as he or she feels necessary.[25]


Release 3.5 of the three core rulebooksThe most recent versions of the game's rules are detailed in three core rulebooks: The Player's Handbook, the Dungeon Master's Guide and the Monster Manual. A Basic Game boxed set contains abbreviated rules to help beginners learn the game.[26]

The only items required to play the game are the rulebooks, a character sheet for each player and a number of polyhedral dice. The current editions also assume, but do not require, the use of miniature figures or markers on a gridded surface. Earlier editions did not make this assumption.[27] Many optional accessories are available to enhance the game, such as expansion rulebooks, pre-designed adventures and various campaign settings.[28]

Hi SP
Thanks for the informative PM, really sounds like fun, but i feel that i must decline the offer as my time in Udon is limited due to work schedules, but best of luck and now looking forward to further updates of the games.

Cheers

There will be an upcoming game from July 24-27. I know I've been gone for a while but I'll be back in town and I'll be running the game. You can PM me or post here and I'll give all the details.

Sorry I don't remember the name of the street but the game will be held at The Bookstore in town. Great location and also has refreshments and a perfect atmosphere for playing D&D.

You don't need to know the rules right off as everyone helps each other. The only thing you''ll need is your imagination.

Everyone will be most welcomed.

We had a great game about two weeks ago and are planning on having a game during the 12-13th August holiday.

Please let us know if you'd like to join in the fun!

Learning how to play really is a piece of cake and the game is great to play because you can unofficially cheat. Well, we calll it being devious, actually!

The game is on! We're here at the The Book Shop now and the game is going great. Looks as though we have new player and possibly attracting others.

Don't be shy, come back and give it a try. You may find that this is a great way to spend a few hours with friends slaying dragons saving the world :D

Through my best efforts ScorpioPower managed to stay alive through another dungeon. It was quite nice seeing another person wanting to join the group.

If you fancy joining PM me or ScorpioPower and we will help set-up your character. We have a program to make it simple just ask one of us. Don't worry about learning the rules as we will help you learn on the fly. The most important thing is to come and have fun! :D

Another adventure will be starting later this month. I will be in town on the 13th or 14th and were planning on gaming for 10 days or so.

For those of you that have played before I am planning on running the module "White Plume Mountain". This is a true D&D classic and I have great memories of going through this dungeon. Don't miss a chance to try it out for yourself.
