Might have found a “Rare” edition of Advanced Dungeons & Dragons?

I found this hard cover book and wasn’t really sure on what it was. So I called a friend and he said it was "a rare edition" and that I could get quite a bit of money out of it.

Looking for a good Dungeons and Dragons one shot video to demo what it can be to begininers

Are there any good examples of one shot dungeons and dragons adventures online that I could share with a group of people who have never played but are intrigued to give them a flavour of what it all is before we start playing? I know that Critical Role has a long running campaign (I am watching it) but am looking more for something that can really get someone who has never played before a good overview of what it is and how it all works rather then them having to watch through a number of episodes of a series. usually I would sit the group down and talk them all through it face to face but it is a bit harder to do that currently with social distancing etc.

Has Dungeons & Dragons ever been officially translated into Hungarian?

So I was talking with a friend from Budapest, Hungary who told me that he had played Dungeons & Dragons back in the 1980s. However, he explained that at the time they were playing “bootlegged” versions because there was no official Hungarian translation.* According to him, D&D was seen as a tool of Western influence (being based on Western folklore and glorifying capitalist ideas in that you work to get treasure for yourself, I guess) and with Hungary being a Soviet bloc nation it was banned from import.

Today, Hungary is a democracy like many countries in the former Soviet Bloc. My friend hasn’t played D&D for years and he wasn’t sure about the current status of the game. He imagines that an English version could be found at some bookstore, but he wasn’t sure if it was ever officially available in Hungarian. Was any edition of Dungeons & Dragons ever officially released in Hungarian since the fall of the Soviet Union?

* Fun fact: he said that the bootleg Hungarian translation he used had all sorts of amusing errors that he discovered later when he learned English. For instance, Clerics’ “Turn Undead” ability used the definition of “Turn” meaning “Turn Into”, so for a while they played where clerics had the ability to become undead a limited number of times per day!

Avoiding static dungeons

With many published adventures from different systems and also with adventures I myself have created for my groups I noticed that the dungeons in them feel static. You have 1 room with beasts that prey on anyone who enters by falling from above. Another room with wolves and a third one with a lone kobold.

And almost regardless what the players do it is expected that none of the other inhabitants of the dungeons react to what happens around them….. or only very very few of them (in the above case the kobold).

Now I have thought quite a lot of how I could manage it to get the dungeon to feel less static in these regards. But teh sad part is with most systems I got a problem in regards to power levels.

If we take the above example as example (its from a pathfinder adventure). If the players sneak through the dungeon and then encounter the beasts on the ceiling and fight with them…naturally they make quite a noise.If I now let the wolves and the kobold attack them (those are allies with each other)…the players are as good as dead as the encounter would become from a normal one to an impossible one for them. At the same time, if I let only 1 wolf enter the fray….the wolf encounter becomes too easy, … .

So thinking more and more about it I found, that making a dungeon feel less static is quite…hard. Especially in systems that have levels.

Now my question is: Are there any commonly used methods, or ways to make dungeons feel less static or avoid the staticness altogether?

what is the best Dungeons & Dragons Official Homepage for to Start playing

A human in clanging plate armor holds her shield before her as she runs toward the massed goblins. An elf behind her, clad in studded leather armor, peppers the goblins with arrows loosed from his exquisite bow. The half-orc nearby shouts orders, helping the two combatants coordinate their assault to the best advantage.

A dwarf in chain mail interposes his shield between the ogre’s club and his companion, knocking the deadly blow aside. His companion, a half-elf in scale armor, swings two scimitars in a blinding whirl as she circles the ogre, looking for a blind spot in its defenses.

A gladiator fights for sport in an arena, a master with his trident and net, skilled at toppling foes and moving them around for the crowd’s delight—and his own tactical advantage. His opponent’s sword flares with blue light an instant before she sends lightning flashing forth to smite him.

All of these heroes are fighters, perhaps the most diverse class of characters in the worlds of Dungeons & Dragons. Questing knights, conquering overlords, royal champions, elite foot soldiers, hardened mercenaries, and bandit kings—as fighters, they all share an unparalleled mastery with weapons and armor, and a thorough knowledge of the skills of combat. And they are well acquainted with death, both meting it out and staring it defiantly in the face.

Help with an Anydice formula to calculate hit percentage in Dungeons and Dragons

I’m trying to create what I think is a simple formula in Anydice and struggling to figure it out.

I roll a 20 sided dice, add a number x, and want to know the odds that the number will be greater or equal to a number between 5 and 25. For those who play D&D, basically:

If a fighter has a +8 to hit, what is the percentage chance that he’ll hit AC 5-25?

I think this is it, but he never fully shows the entire formula, and when I copy it into anydice, it keeps returning an error: https://anydice.com/articles/dnd4-attacks/

Thanks in advance!
