The D&D or “Dungeons and Dragons” is a brand name that is recognized by
most people with online experience. The concept of the game was created
back in the early 1970‟s and was based on a board game with handmade
small figurines. All the players had to role-play every reaction and
consequence to make the figures “come to life”. Ever since then the
tabletop game has been a beloved classic and it has endured through the
many years, adapting and changing to match the present technology to a
point where you can now play Dungeons and Dragons online in a virtual
world. Ever since the 1970‟s there are hundreds of copies of the concept.
Some are better than others.

The game of role-playing can be a fun way of playing out your fantasies
in persona and characters you couldn‟t normally be IRL (in real life).
Many people have come to enjoy playing and pretending to be someone else
- at least for a little while. Even though the normal tabletop structure
is still very popular, it will usually require getting a small group of
people together to have a gaming session worthwhile. Still more and more
players are turning to the concept of playing Dungeons and Dragons online
for an easy and quick escapism and naturally for the entertainment it
provides.

Are You Still Looking For More Information?

One of the best places to get more information on playing the game is the
Dungeons and Dragons Online website also known as www.ddo.com. The site
is a great and up to date virtual resource, as the epic game does have a
rather huge set of regulations and rules on the process of character
creation. You will find a store where you are able to buy the manuals and
core books. They will teach you the game mechanics quickly. You can also
use the free Quick Start guide and Compendium sections as a great free
resource to learn how to create a Dungeons and Dragons online persona
without waiting.
When you visit the www.ddo.com (The Dungeons and Dragons Online website)
it provides you with guidelines that can help you flesh out a character
concept and get you ready to instantly find a great game and start
playing it right away. Please note that you won‟t be able to play
Dungeons and Dragons online directly on the website but there are many
links and forums listing where you can search for the game. If that
doesn‟t help, doing a few quick searches on the internet for Dungeons and
Dragons online role-playing games (I suggest www.Google.com) will provide
you with links to great sites where games are constantly being played.

I the case that you find that playing Dungeons and Dragons online is not
for you, but that you still find the idea of role-playing interesting,
you have plenty of options to choose from. Go take a look around for
tabletop groups in your neighbourhood – most people in the role-playing
community are very friendly and open to meet new players. You can also
find games called LARPs which is an acronym for „live-action role
playing‟ in which you literally pretend to be someone else than you
actually are.

If playing elves and dwarves in a Dungeons and Dragons online game isn‟t
really your thing you don‟t need to give up just yet. There are all sorts
of other types of role-playing games, such as werewolf and vampire
characters, everyday life styles games or modern-day or science fiction
settings and even the new apocalypse games. There is something for just
about everyone. The only thing you have to do is find what you enjoy
most!
