D&D for dummies... brilliant
on 7 February 2009
This "For dummies" guide is perhaps one of the greatest ways to get started on the new edition of Dungeons & Dragons.
It includes everything you actually need to know to get started as a newbie. Even though you need the three core rulebooks in order to play the full game, this is an absoulutely great start. (And it actually deals with one of the most complicated subjects of D&D which is to say... explaining to other folks and people outside the hobby what the heck this game is all about.
There are a few mistakes that may cause a bit of confusion.
For example: The sample dungeon poster map contained within this book is from the 3,0 version of the same book. And so there is a sorcerer chip, from which there are no character sheet connected(It's representing the wizard I suppose).
Apart from that and a few other minor mistakes this is a great starting point for any potential gamer and I can hardly recommend it.
