As of May 30th, 2020, this studio is ACTIVE!
Hi there! Welcome to the (unofficial) Scratch version of Dungeons & Dragons!
Anyone can join, whether you're a D&D enthusiast, or you've never heard of it before.
To join, simply ask! If you've never played D&D and would like to learn how to play, fill out the character request form and post it in this studio.
Dungeons & Dragons was the first RPG to become commercially available, and is a fantasy tabletop role-playing game originally designed by Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson. It was first published in 1974. Basically, think of it as a more advanced version of the RPG studios that are everywhere here on Scratch!
The differences between D&D and Scratch RPGs are:
- D&D is built to have 4-6 players in one RP and is played in sessions where all the players are present,
- The outcomes of actions are partially decided by random chance. For example, if you were trying to sneak past a guard, you would roll a twenty sided die and add your stealth modifier to the result. If you are more stealthy than the guard is perceptive, then the guard notices nothing!
- There is one player called the Dungeon Master (frequently abbreviated to DM), who is responsible for creating the world that the players interact with.
There are a lot of rulebooks written for D&D, but you don't need to read them to play. If you'd like to read them, the basic rules are available for free online (see link at bottom).
If you would like to start your own campaign, please notify @MayaKiona!
Character Request Form:
(If you're new, please read through this first: https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/214625284/)
* means optional.
Post your homebrew content here!
List of campaigns:
Note: Depending on who's campaign you join, you may need to post your character sheet on Scratch. Some Dungeon Masters will not ask for it, some will. If you need to transfer your sheet to Scratch, you can remix this template, originally made by @MysticUnicornSparkle
The fifth edition basic rules have been made freely available by the current publishers of D&D! You aren't required to read them, though.
Other stuff: (mostly for Dungeon Masters)
