How to Play Dungeons and Dragons 5E – Intro

Good news  everyone! *In Professor Farnsworth voice*

The first Don’t Stop Thinking Episode is finally out! We are learning how to play Dungeons and Dragons (D&D) and this is the first video of the series. Here, I will give beginners a brief introduction on the history of D&D, the polyhedral dice and the general flow of the game.

*Update* 4:03: While the number in the percentile dice range between 00-0 to 99. The 00-0 result is read as 100.

 

The series map below previews future videos I will be releasing. So be sure to subscribe to the channel to be notified of their release.

 

In the video, I introduced two characters that I will be using to illustrate the mechanics of the game. You can find their character sheet pdfs and image files down here:

I you want your own blank character sheets, you can go to the Wizards’ official D&D site to download them. The link to their character sheet page is here and click the “Fifth Edition Character Sheets”.

You can find tons of materials on their site and you can also find the “Basic Rules” document here. The Basic rules contains the barest essential of the Fifth Edition Player’s Handbook. It does not have all the class and archetype options of the PHB, but it is a good reference material to start with.

For disclosure, I am not affiliated with Wizards of the Coast or have any financial ties with them. But I am a member of the Adventurers League, a volunteer run D&D organised play group. I have dungeon mastered for new and returning players at a PAX event, but the main reason I am doing this video series is to introduce new players to the game and get former players to return by dispelling the complexities of the game with animated graphic.

So, I hope you will enjoy the videos as much as I enjoy making them.

CJ, over and out.

PS: Just to let everyone know, some of the videos may not be released on consecutive weeks due to the breadth of the topic. However, the channel will still be updated once a week with other videos.
