Using D&D mechanic in an adventure I am thinking of writing however I am not quite sure how to create a protagonist on D&D so I am thinking of creating a concept character. concept character is for the DM to be someone who, in the adventure, is basically a new person being introduced to the world. It is my opinion that if your going to write an adventure based around a D&D mechanic that you should probably start using one. I also think that having a concept character helps to give motivation to your players to follow your lead.
First we will talk about being a concept character. A concept character has some kind of special ability that sets them apart from regular characters. Perhaps they are more powerful, have a more unique ability, are resistant to damage, have a better statistics, are more versatile, or have a specific expertise. We can use these as basis for building the character. Once you decide what kind of ability score, race, and class you want the character to have you need to give them a background, and move into the adventure. The first few sessions of playing the game aren’t very important, the players won’t know what to do with you until a few sessions are played since you won’t be in their world at the beginning.
You can also choose to go “DM-less”, which means that you don’t have to play a character or deal with all the mechanics of the game. This is the option that I would recommend. There are tons of advantages and disadvantages to having no role-playing game. I’ll talk about them later in this article.
Now we get to the good stuff… Dungeon Mastering (DMs). In a turn-based RPG the players control a party of characters, which progresses through levels until reaching the final boss. DMs give the players experience points, which they use to buy and apply to different attributes, abilities, and spells. This is where the similarities to video games end.
The difference between a video game and a traditional role-playing game is the emphasis on story and game play. Video games are more visual. If the player doesn’t like an element of the scenery, they can turn off the game and continue enjoying their time. In the case of D&D, a player is forced to do certain things and can only choose which of those things to do at specific times.
D&D Mechanics in these Rpgs, while not as complex as mechanics found in other RPGs, are very well developed. I find it amazing that someone, let alone a gamer, would make a game based on playing dragon games & the like. They are certainly far from what one would expect from modern PC gaming. A typical turn-based RPG will have stats, levels, & classes that aren’t found in modern video games. One big example would be Final Fantasy X, a roleplaying game with an almost futuristic science fiction feel.
A D&D gamer will enjoy the character development, weapon proficiency, skill points, & overall gameplay. These types of games offer great replay value, because you can return to previous levels if you get stuck on something. For me, the biggest draw to a D&D game is its consistent atmosphere & graphics. Another big reason is the use of imagination. A good D&D game starts out with large open world, where the player has limited options as to how they can progress through the game.
I feel that video games are evolving into a new, first-person shooter genre. This style of game is fun because it allows for exploration, narrative, & RPG elements. If you really want to get into the action, you should definitely check out D&D Mechanics. If you enjoy roleplaying games with excellent mechanics and a dark, medieval theme, this is a game that you definitely need to look into.
