Hey, me and my friends just started playing Dungeons and Dragons, and are about halfway through the boxed Basic Set, and since I'm the (extremely inexperienced) DM, I'm trying to find something else to play once we've played through that scenario. Am I supposed to make a new one up, or what would be a good other premade story to go along with to buy and play with as a second go?

There's your problem.

Just make shit up as you go along, preferably involving Lich kings.

I checked the D&D site, and it says to pick up the Player's Handbook, the Dungeon Master's Guide, and Monster Manual. Will that just give me the basic guidelines to make a new story up, or does the DM guide have more scenario's to play out?

Well, first off, make sure never to wear deodorant. Also, lock your virginity away in a nice lockbox and never give it up. That should get you off to a good start.

Oh don't worry, if I had any chance of getting laid, I would go straight towards it. Seeing as how I am already horrendously repulsive, I might as well have fun any way I can.

D&D is creepy ****, some dungeon master ended up killing someone at my sister's old dorm. We had to move her out of the dorm with a dead girl in a room across from her. Apparently they didn't want to carry a body bag in front of a bunch of people.

Millions of people get enjoyment from it, and millions end up having a good time and getting on with their lives. Don't blame the game for the actions people play it take. Its the exact same thing as people who believe that video games or movies are responsible for crime or murder. Its either people who were deranged enough to take the actions in the first place or people who are too scared to take responsibility for their own actions that claim that games caused them to murder someone.

dude you should listen to Stephen Lynch's song... IT'S D&D!!!! and BTW I always wanted to play D&D

create a story about cross dressing enchanted dumbasses +2 that move in to ye olde hut and don't leave for months while contributing nothing to the party and draining resources.

(i had a buddy of mine stay at my place once.. totally took me for a ride by sitting around playing D&D with his lame-ass friends.. he wasn't a crossdresser tho. i threw that in there for fun.)

but hey. enchanted dumbass +2 makes me laugh.

Problem no.1: You live in Aylmer. Folks on the other side of the bridge have no imagination...unless it comes to interesting ways to get high

Problem no.2: You're inexperienced. Go to your local Chapters or what have you, and pick up Dungeon Master for dummies, it has a lot of good ideas and reference points. Also, pick up the monthly issue of Dragon.

I used to play D&D back in highschool. I still have the PHB, MM, and DMG at home, as well as a couple of supplement books. I thought about playing again, but I really don't have the time for it anymore, cept maybe on the weekends. But I digress: Getting laid and jamming is just so much more fulfilling.

I have a fair bit of DM-ing experience, though I'm a bit of a maverick, so don't expect me to be able to help with precise rules - I use a bastardised mix of the old Basic D&D and my own imagination.

But for the creative side, I can probably lend you a hand. PM me your MSN if that sounds at all useful, or post a bit more detail in here as to exactly what you're aiming for.

hey man, those people messing with you for playing D&D, tell them to **** off. its a fun game, great way to hang out with your friends and excersize your imagination.


ok ok. YES, the Dungeon Master's Guide(DMG), Player's Handbook(PHB), and Monster Manual(MM) are a neccesity if you want to play after the Basic Box. THESE ARE THE CORE BOOKS. they are the only three you NEED to have. but be aware there are hundreds of others that detail new monsters, classes, races, items, and etc. any time you want to buy a new DnD book its going to cost AT LEAST $20. buy them off Ebay i would recomend. and make sure they are the 3.5 edition. that is also important.

since you and your group are a bunch of newbies, you should probably run some pre-published adventures until you get the hang of it.

Official Wizards Pre-Published Adventures Free to Download.

I CANNOT STRESS ENOUGH (reason for the caps) THAT YOU BUY ALL THREE CORE BOOKS and LEARN THEM! after that, the world is your oyster. if i have not been clear enough, or you have a question on anything big or small. feel free to send me a PM or e-mail me at coldshiftdown@yahoo.com.

have fun. and remember, the dragon is always on the left.

oh yeah, Wizards of the Coast Website.

that is the publisher and officiator of all Dungeons and Dragons books and erata. the forums there will probably help so much more than UG.

(not that UG is inferior, but itd be like going to wizards and asking advice on chord shapes.)

Cold Shift Down - what you're saying is correct, but I'd just like to add to it that you CAN keep playing with just the basic set, without buying any of the advanced set, providing you have good creative and improvisational skills, and a bit of patience. Great D&D games are based around RP and cunning improv interaction between players and DM, not stats and dice.

But yeah, TS follow ColdShiftDown's advice if you want to do it the traditional way.
