Ask Dicebreaker: Get your questions about Dungeons & Dragons answered!

D&D Q&A FYI.

What’s an owlbear? What D&D 5E monster could Wheels take in a fight? How do you deal with a problem player? What’s Johnny’s best on-the-spot invention as a DM? What setting would we like to return to - or explore for the first time? What’s the most embarrassing thing that’s happened to Alex during a roleplaying campaign?

This is your chance to ask us whatever’s on your mind and find out everything you’ve ever wanted to know about Dungeons & Dragons! (And probably a bit more than that, too.)

This week we’re kicking off a new regular column called Ask Dicebreaker, where you can ask us anything you want to know about a certain tabletop topic, from the silly to the serious.

We’re starting big, too, with an offer to field your burning queries about the mighty tabletop RPG D&D.

You might want to ask something specific about the roleplaying game - how to calculate an attack roll, maybe, or what makes a sorcerer different to a wizard. (Although you’ll find plenty of those FAQs already answered in our guides on how to play Dungeons & Dragons 5E, how to choose a D&D 5E class and more!)

Instead, maybe you’re after the team’s tips on being a top-notch dungeon master, wondering how the Dicebreaker team first discovered D&D, what we reckon are the best fantasy tabletop RPGs that aren’t Dungeons & Dragons are, want to hear our fondest memories of adventuring through the Forgotten Realms are or something a bit more specific.

Whatever your question may be, post it in the comments below before this Thursday, January 30th and we’ll pick out some of the most popular, interesting and entertaining queries to respond to as a team!

And heck, while you're at it, why not suggest some other games and topics you'd like us to cover in future Ask Dicebreaker instalments?
