Let’s Get Geeky: The History of the Dungeons & Dragons
It wouldn’t be FanBolt if we didn’t include some fun facts in this page. Have you ever wondered about the origin of DND?
The fantasy role-playing game (RPG) was first created in 1974. American game designers, Ernest Gary Gygax and David Arneson, are credited with the creation which was publish that same year by Gygax’s company, Tactical Studies Rules (TSR). After a couple of decades passed, in 1997, the game was acquired by a Hasbro, Inc. subsidiary, Wizards of the Coast.
The Basic Overview of DnD
Over the years, DnD has gone through multiple editions and rule changes, but the basics remain the same. The game is set in a fantasy world during medieval times. Multiple characters (or players) come together to form a group that is led through a campaign by a player that takes on the role of storyteller, also know as the Dungeon Master.
The Dungeon Master creates a series of events for the campaign, and then the each player responses to those events in different ways – creating a unique adventure.
When the players are picking their characters, they select a race (the most common being be Elf, Dwarf, Halfling, and Human), a classic (such as Barbarian, Bard, Cleric, Druid, Wizard, etc…), and lastly, specific skills for their character. From here, points are given out for different attributes (like Strength, Intelligence, Charisma, etc…).
All of these details come together to reveal how effective a character is in certain scenarios or preforming certain actions. And as actions are performed successfully, characters gain more attribute points. There is also the possibility of failure for these actions, and that is determined by rolling or or more of the game’s dices (4-, 6-, 8-, 10-, 12-, and 20-sided).
