The Dungeons and Dragons wiki is dedicated to all things Dungeons and Dragons. Here you will find general information on the various editions, campaign settings, and sourcebooks that make the game we love what it is as well as a vibrant homebrew community. Anyone can jump in and add to existing canon material or create their own homebrew pages with easy-to-use preloads that automatically format and categorize pages.

Hank, Presto, Eric, Diana, Sheila, and her younger brother Bobby all go to an amusement park one night. While there, they go on a ride called 'Dungeons and Dragons.' But while on that ride, they get sucked into the world of Dungeons and Dragons. There they are attacked by various monsters and entities. When all seems lost, they're greeted by a short, mysterious man known as Dungeon Master. He gives each one of them a magical item that they can use to fight monsters and defend themselves.
