    In an age of virtual reality, video games, and smartphones, more and more people are getting into this magical, nerdy tabletop fantasy role-playing game. Here’s why you should play Dungeons & Dragons, too.

    If you want to learn more about D&D, here are my (Carlos M) recommendations:

    Great D&D weekly livestream: Critical Role

      @Vox, please review the Greek subtitles i have contributed for this video and add them as soon as possible! I'm standing by in case you disagree with something and want it changed, eventhough i am very confident in the work i did which derives from my huge love for this amazing game we play!
      Please add the subtitles so more people in my country can enjoy the great work you did here!
      Thank you!

      Hey guys, great job summing up dnd! Your point on shared vulneability and support being an important factor for a game's success is really interesting (and i think, true). If you ever do a follow up, another big factor might be the effect good storytellers have on their audience, which explains why shows like Matthew Mercer's critical role are such big hits: (http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/80beats/2010/07/27/study-the-brains-of-storytellers-and-their-listeners-actually-sync-up/#.WyeTRvZFyHc)

      I think you could have made it a bit clearer that everything you talked about can happen in all genres. Some people might get turned off by the fantasy genre and miss out on the experience.

    I dont know about you, but none of my DnD characters have been, "Heroes" they've all been in jail to much for that

    excellent presentation!

  • Mirka Farkašová

    Ok but who creates the story? Does the DM have to come up with the whole story by himself?

    D&D is awesome fun. I've truly enjoyed playing and DMing for friends over the years. I can't imagine how terribly PC Vox has to play though. You can't rescue a princess because that's sexist. You can't kill a dragon because, you know, they're endangered animals. No hunting, because that's animal cruelty. Combat is obvious toxic masculinity. How do you avoid the racism that is practically built into the game? Half Orcs and Tieflings are generally not liked by other races, not to mention the Drow. In fact, most RPG tropes are off the table, but at least you can still make insults to Christian based religions.

    A friend of mine had us play a dnd session, nothing serious just 2 characters and the dm. Our named where ligma and sugma, in the first day sugma killed a random civilian and pissed on a mugger in a tavern full of people, ligma the next day interrogated a random stand owner with a crossbow to the head.

    Great video. Just wish it was about tabletop RPGs in general. D&D is one brand, but it's hardly the whole story. There are many systems out there for many different styles of play, themes and settings.
