In this blog, I post articles every Thursday (or Friday) about all sorts of topics related to Dungeons & Dragons, including how to get started, which resources and sites have the best info, and how to be the best DM (Dungeon Master) and PC (player character) you can be.
Also, because I usually play D&D with my kids, my focus is on making sure kids (and other new players) enjoy the game right off the bat.
