Dungeons and Dragons Starter Set: Running Phandelver: Sly Flourish

Great way to get started Reviewed by Richard A on Jan 18, I recently started DMing for some friends and I dont dnd starter set I would have known where to start without this starter set.

Has a lot of good references to get a good understanding of the game or if you want somewhere to start because you arent sure if you would like it or not. My friends and I did part one of the adventure a few weeks ago and we enjoyed ourselves immensely.

A good place to get started Reviewed by Steven L on Jan 16, Has everything you need to get started. I'd suggest getting everyone who's going to play their own dice too as passing dice around breaks the pacing a bit. The Starter Set is a great purchase, with everything you need to take up to five others with you on some epic adventures.

It also does a great job of explaining all the relevant rules, and the supplemental material included is of great value. You're looking at roughly 40 hours of pen-and-paper gaming right here, it comes highly recommended. It has everything you need to get a great understanding of the basic mechanics and rules.

It comes with a beginner campaign with everything you need to jump into it with your friends. It is really easy to pick up and leaves room for the good times to dnd starter set. The box also comes with 1 set of dice and character sheets.

Perfect for the beginner Reviewed by Cameron M on Oct 11, A great bundle of everything you need to get started. If you end up really liking the miniatures approach, you might want to get a dry-erase or wet-erase grid board. As for miniatures themselves, there are similarly a lot of options from a lot of publishers, in a lot of price ranges.

One option is just little cardboard squares that just show a position on the board.


Another is full-fledged miniature figurines, generally made of plastic, pewter, or metal. Some people enjoy a hobby of painting these as least as much as they like playing the game. I recently bought the Arcknight Flat Plastic Miniatures DM Starter Setwhich has printed graphics including I think every creature you'll meet dnd starter set the Lost Mine of Phandelver on little plastic sheets which pop into little stands, giving a bit of three-dimensionality while not having the cost or taking-up-space-on-my-shelf that full miniatures would have.

But all of that is "extras" I'd only recommend if you're looking for more things to get and if everybody's going to like using them; it's certainly not needed at all in order to play and dnd starter set a great time.

Some people use digital maps, either because they're playing entirely online, or they use a large display or projector on or near their table and track monster and player positions on their screen.

Dungeons and Dragons Starter Set: Running Phandelver

For Lost Mine of Phandelver specifically, the illustrator has digital maps dnd starter set the adventure available for sale intended for this use, though one could print them out too if one wanted to mess with getting the scaling right and either put together multiple papers or find a large-format printer.

Again, this is an option you don't need dnd starter set all, but since you asked about what you might want to buy or use I wanted to include the possibility for completeness.

But even though I just spent a lot of words describing various ways of using maps, really, doing everything in your mind will work great. Only use something more complicated dnd starter set your group will find it more fun and worth the cost.

Anything else I should buy? The premise of the Starter Set is that it has everything you need to get started, and it really does.


You may want more sets of dice, just so you don't need to keep passing the ones in the set around the table, but it's not really needed to start. I dnd starter set like to introduce this game in a cool way.

I figured I would set up the table in the middle of our rec room, buy some pizza, dim the lights, possibly dress-up, etc. Sounds like you're off to a great start. Feel free to check out our chat roombrowse questions here see the new-gm and lost-mine-of-phandelver tags in particularand look elsewhere on the Internet for tips, but really just don't worry about "screwing things up".

Since sure you will make mistakes, and you'll discover things you dnd starter set you'd done differently, but the point of the game, like all games, is to have fun.
