What is D&D?
by Hawke Robinson published Apr 29, 2017 last modified Jun 27, 2020 02:22 PM — filed under: , , , , , , , , , , , , ,
Dungeons and Dragons™ (commonly known as D & D™) is an elaborate fantasy game which evolved from the war games popular in the late 1950's. Instead of a historical battlefield and battle, D&D™ games are fought in the minds of the players as the DM (dungeon master, or god) sets the stage in the fantasy world. Each player assumes the identity of the character he creates. His creature is based on chance roll of the dice. Each character will have six basic abilities: strength, intelligence, wisdom, constitution, dexterity, and charisma. The manual guideline will determine whether the character will be "good" or "evil."

Sure games are fun. Yet the play that's built into them does not make them false; it makes them psychologically truer even than everyday life. Games can Solve major crises, train war heroes, and civilize us all. What the world needs is not less time for playing games but more.
