Dungeons & Dragons is a tabletop Role-Playing Game that has been around since 1974. There are a ton of resources for this game, which has gone through several versions. D&D is currently in its 5th Edition, but a few of the older versions (mainly 3.5E) are still very popular as well!

It's a digital tool for referencing basic rules that you can access online, on your mobile phone or tablet.  At the top left side of the page, you can see icons for "Compendium", "Spells", "Items", and "Monsters"!

Definitely worth checking out for PbP or live!!
