With all the focus lately on gaming, new players are joining the fold all the time. Many are looking to get into such popular games as Dungeons & Dragons. But where should they begin? With all the different books and supplements out there, it can be intimidating for a new player. Thankfully, Wizards of the Coast is coming out with D&D Essentialls, a new entry-level starter pack to get players gaming as quickly as possible.
From the website:
Everything you need to create characters and play the new adventures in this introduction to the world’s greatest roleplaying game.
Dungeons & Dragons is a cooperative storytelling game that harnesses your imagination and invites you to explore a fantastic world of adventure, where heroes battle monsters, find treasures, and overcome quests. The D&D Essentials Kit is a new introductory product meant to bring D&D to audiences interested in jumping into a fantasy story.
This box contains the essentials you need to run a D&D game with one Dungeon Master and one to five adventurers. A newly designed rulebook on-boards players by teaching them how to make characters, and the included adventure, Dragon of Icespire Peak, introduces a new 1-on-1 rules variant.
