D&D Essentials Kit – What It Is and How to Use It


Hi, I'm a Mindflayer, but don't let that worry you
How many Starter kits do we need? This is like four now.
I wouldn't consider the Stranger Things and Rick & Morty sets to be official Starter Sets, but rather cross-promotions. I also happen to think that they show really good business sense, and we're likely to see 1-2 released every year for the rest of the edition.

Thanks for typing this! I was a bit confused by some minor points, like talking about the 32-page book being part of a cumbersome package which has been boiled down into a more accessible 64-page book...and the phrase "set of classic six-sided die" set off an old instinct about pluralisation which is the mantra of the guards at the gates of our pedantic hobby.

That's all the feedback I have today!
