As a player, you use this wiki to create and run a character. Your character is an adventurer, part of a team that regularly delves into dungeons and battles monsters. Play wherever everyone feels comfortable and there’s a place to set the battle grid and miniatures, roll the dice, and spread out your books and character sheets. The DM sets each scene and describes the action. It’s your job to decide what your character is like, how he or she relates to the other adventurers, and act accordingly. You can play a serious paladin or a wisecracking rogue, a reckless barbarian or a cautious wizard. With your character in mind, respond to each situation as it comes up. Sometimes combat is called for, but other situation might be solved through magic, negotiation, or judicious skill use. Also consider how you respond. Do you narrate your character’s action (“Tordek moves to the doorway and attacks the bugbear”) or speak as your character (“I move to the doorway and take a mighty swing at the monster”)? Either method is fine, and you can even vary your approach to match the situation.
