Dungeonsand Dragons was created by game designers David Arneson and Ernest Gary Gygaxin 1974 and published that same year in January by one of the designer’s company(Gygax’s). It was the first fantasy roleplaying game. Players choose theircharacter for an ongoing fantasy story that lasts for hours. It all startedback when Dave Arneson and Ernest Gary Gygax chose to decorate the huge battleswith their personal touch of their fantasy wargames with the adventures ofindividual heroes.
D&D has been edited more than once with the changes tothe rules and its name. The games era takes place in the medieval fantasy worldwhere several players form a group that is led by one player the Dungeon Master(storyteller). They make up the events in the story or chooses one of thepublished adventures. The players reply in different ways to create a never thesame gaming experience.
Each player selects an origin (human, elf, dwarf,halfling), a class (e.g., Fighter, Rogue, Wizard), and abilities for theircharacter, and they assign a little number of points to different traits(Constitution, Strength, Dexterity, Intelligence, Wisdom, and Charisma) thatdetermines the effective in the character actions. If the actions aresuccessfully, points are given to the matching features. The more parts theactions has the more of a chance the player is likely to fail, and this isresolved by rolling one or more of the polygonal dice. A grid as well asminiature figurines are used to keep track of their characters’ movements. Thereis an endless world of Dungeons and Dragons knowledge through novels that arewritten by fantasy authors, board games, and video games.
