About Dungeons & Dragons
Dungeons & Dragons is the iconic roleplaying game of fantasy and imagination that is part storytelling, part social interaction and part chance. Players take on the roles of characters that go on a journey together through a fantasy realm to discover treasure, fight monsters and battle adversity in a game narrated and refereed by the Dungeon Master.

In 2008, Wizards introduced 4th Edition making the game easier to learn and run than ever before, with expanded options for character creation and game play. Additionally, rules for combat and action have been refined to make encounters more versatile and exciting, giving players a cinematic experience that no other game can offer.

Continuing this evolution, Dungeons & Dragons introduced Dungeons & Dragons Insider (D&D Insider) in 2008, increasing the interactivity of its Web presence and offering players new ways to enhance their game play experience.

D&D Insider is currently available to subscribers and features:

  • Dragon and Dungeon Magazines
  • The D&D Compendium, a 4E-based rules mechanics database, which provides up-to-date game information to support game play both on and offline
  • Bonus Tools including an Encounter Builder and Ability Score Generator
  • The Character Builder which helps players quickly and easily create and equip characters up to level 30, selecting key stats, weapons and powers for enhanced game play.
  • A Monster Builder, the first of the Adventure Tools, allows DMs to build and customize monsters based on the more than 2000 monsters from various D&D published sources.
  • Subscriptions are available at
