Reddit: Want to learn to play D&D? You can start right now!

New post today caught my eye. Want to learn to play D&D? You can start right now...

Find Too Many and Now Lack Players

It is an interesting post inviting new players to learn about D&D, but what I love most about the comment threads are the gold nuggets of wisdom and links to online tools that can be used in gaming. Here's a few I dug out, but as the post ages it might gain more.

Those last two are geared towards introducing younger kids to the game, which is relevant to my interests as a dad. Another repeatedly mentioned suggestion was Roll20, which I've been hearing about often in my current adult group.

Penny Arcade - D&D Podcast - Dark Sun

A few years ago, I'd found a series of audio podcasts of the guys from Penny Arcade and PvP getting together to feature and play test the latest version of Dark Sun for 4th edition.

I've been a fan of Penny Arcade for a while, and I also read PvP on occasion. I downloaded the podcasts and burned them to disc and listened to them through several times on long drives. They were exciting and funny but they also demonstrated well the right feel and theme for Dark Sun while at the same time giving insight into the mechanics of 4th edition to those of us that hadn't played it yet.
