The Dungeon Master’s Guide is the essential core reference for every Dungeons & Dragons DM.
This sourcebook provides you the tools and tips to help run your characters’ worlds and ensure the game runs smoothly.
- GUIDE ADVENTURERS: This guide contains all the rules and inspiration you need for running your own adventures. This includes guidelines for non-player character creation, over 240 magic items with descriptions, lore, and illustrations and dozens of tables to inspire in-game outcomes.
- IMMERSE YOUR PLAYERS: What’s the demon lord’s secret weakness? Are the orcish invaders a criminal enterprise, or traitorous allies? Dozens of tables throughout the book help inspire your decisions and keep the game flowing smoothly.
- ESSENTIAL TOOLS: The Dungeon Master’s Guide is one of the three main Dungeons & Dragons books, along with the Player’s Handbook and Monster Manual. It’s a reference used by the Dungeon Master (the game’s narrator) to create adventures—to run Dungeons & Dragons games and fill them with characters and stories.
- UNLEASH YOUR IMAGINATION: Dungeons & Dragons is a cooperative storytelling game that harnesses your imagination and invites you to explore a fantastic world of adventure, where heroes battle monsters, find treasures, and overcome quests.
