Get started playing Dungeons & Dragons with the Starter Set! Containing everything you need to leap into a D&D adventure, this boxed set is designed for five to six players, with one of you taking on the role of the game’s lead storyteller, the Dungeon Master.
Join thousands of other D&D players who have experienced the exciting adventure in the box: 'Lost Mine of Phandelver,' a 64-page booklet for the DM to read.
If you’d like to learn even more about D&D, the Starter Set is a perfect jumping-off point, leading next to the main Dungeons & Dragons books: the Player’s Handbook, Monster Manual, and Dungeon Master’s Guide.
Inside the Dungeons & Dragons Starter Set:
Five Ready-to-Play Characters
In D&D, you create characters and play their roles in a story. Choose from a halfling rogue, seeking revenge against a traitorous ally. An elven wizard, called to duty by the god of knowledge—these five characters are ready for adventure, and great models for future characters.
In-game outcomes are sometimes determined by chance. Does the ogre believe your outrageous bluff? Does your dagger pierce the dragon’s scales or merely scuff them? These six dice help decide.
In D&D, the story is guided by your actions, and your actions are guided by the rules.
'I hurl the brazier of hot coals into the monster’s face,' a player says. What happens next is up to you, the Dungeon Master, and this book.
Adventure Book: The Lost Mine of Phandelver
This book is for the Dungeon Master. As the Dungeon Master, you’re the game’s narrator and referee. You’ll play the roles of the monsters and villains your players encounter as they battle and plunder their way through Never winter.
