Dungeons & Dragons

Dungeons & Dragons or D&D is a fantasy roleplaying system that was created by TSR and is now the property of Wizards of the Coast (WotC).

Over the years it has been redesigned various times. The original D&D system was enlarged into Advanced Dungeons and Dragons (AD&D) which had a 1st Edition (AD&D I) and a 2nd Edition (AD&D II or D&D 2ed). At the start of the 21st century, a Dungeons & Dragons 3rd Edition (D&D 3ed) was published based on the D20 system. This was further improved and became Dungeons and Dragons Edition 3.5 (D&D 3.5). Dungeons and Dragons 4th Edition (D&D 4ed) was published in 2008 and is the current form of the game.

The main publications required to run a D&D game are the "Player's Handbook" and "Dungeon Master's Guide" but the "Monster Manual" is generally also regarded as vital.

For further information on D&D, we suggest you visit the WotC site.

Birthright and D&D

The Birthright Campaign Setting was originally written by TSR for D&D 2ed. Under the agreement between WotC and Birthright.net, the fansite has developed a new version of the Birthright rules and lore for D&D 3.5. The aim of the BRWiki is to be an additional means of publishing this new BRCS.

It is not known yet whether Wizards will be publishing any Birthright scenarios or rules for D&D 4ed. However, some fan-based work on 4eBRCS can be found on this wiki.
