  • This game is not fun. I've been trying to learn to play for over a week and I still haven't figured it out. This game is too hard. If this was a videogame I could play it. Way too much math. I can't visualize anything that's going on. When do you actually get to play?

  • This video is what inspired me to play D&D back in 2018. I've been playing ever since and it's become a huge part of my life, meeting friends, improving my confidence massively, and for a while one of the only things that got me through the week. Thanks to you and everyone in this wonderful community for introducing me to this amazing hobby.

  • Me and my friends had one mission in dnd one session. We spent a little over 5 hours trying to get that 3d maneuver shit from AOT. We did and we were so fucking proud

  • "You can do whatever you want." he's not wrong, that is until the DM strikes your character with lighting, for being annoying.

  • There is more than just DnD. Try some of the other and sometimes more advanced games or systems. Fate or Shadowrun. Or international systems like Das Schwarze Auge (DSA). It‘s mind opening just so switch the system.

  • I would love playing this game. I first heard about it way back in the 70's but didn't know exactly what it was other than a game with cool little playing pieces. I didn't know anyone who played, a friend of mine liked to paint the little character pieces for people who did play. Looks like a lot of fun! 🐲🐉🧚‍♀️🧙‍♂️ as an artist I love the creativity and artwork of D&D

    • It could be one (or more) of several reasons.. 1. They think it's too dumbed down 2. They think it is too PC 3. They're nerds who want to make fun of nerds, which is the very definition of a dork 4. They're hipsters (check the vinyl LP scent on them) 5. They failed math 6. They do everything solo 7. They're afraid they might have the time of their lives and realize the previous, so-called times of their lives could never compare to playing D&D. 8. They're evangelicals who are still stuck on Satanic Panic mode 9. They can only enjoy anything passively

  • All the comments shitting on Jared and Holly really have aged poorly. Seeing as he actually had receipts proving all the accusers false and also showed that his wife was the one being abusive. Hell a little bit after her therapist basically said she needed to chill and she went on a massive rant online about how her therapist has betrayed her.

  • Hey folks! If anyone’s looking for actual footage of a D&D group’s natural gameplay & real life, bare-bones style role playing of 6 fellow adventurers in the early 20s - filmed in brief memorable moments (saved as Snapchat clips) ... Here’s a D&D compilation video I literally JUST uploaded with 11 months worth of footage from 2017 & 2018. Lmk if you’ve got any questions or concerns w/ a comment on the video if you’ve got any after viewing. Here it is... the FALLEN GRACES ERA ! viworld.info/rock/video/02uH14K7uH9jrKc.html

  • Fun fact: DnD is just one of many, MANY ttrpg systems out there. There's plenty of systems that are completely free. There are also systems that have way simpler rules and/or faster mechanics (DnD is rather complex and rule heavy, lots of basic math required).

I originally watched it in the summer of 2019, and immediately I was enchanted by the idea of playing dnd because I had never known how to play it. Since watching ur videos I have dmed multiple campaigns, reconnected with old friends who wanted to play dnd with me, and had thousands of laughs, so thank you for showing me dnd and giving me one of my new passions. :)

  • You wouldn't believe what I'm playing as a kid, I'm playing with my fingers. One guy will be *the host* (DM) and he has to represent all the players and situation with just his two hands, then we start role playing and all the event and mission will be up to *the host*. There is no Dice here, only thing to predict the out come of the action will be predict by how dumb or smart the host think about your action, like if you use head-butt against a robot, your head will explode instantly.
