Players of Dungeons and Dragons create characters who embark upon imaginary adventures in which they battle monsters, gather treasure, interact with each other, and earn experience points to become increasingly powerful as the game progresses. D&D departs from traditional war gaming by assigning each player a specific character, as opposed to an army. Also much of a D&D game takes place purely in the imagination of the players, using only paper, pencils and dice to keep records and randomise. While the current 3rd edition rules do assume the use of miniatures or markers on a grided surface to resolve combat, some older versions were played wholey without physical representations of characters positions. D&D uses the concept of a Dungeon Master (DM), a referee and storyteller responsible for maintaining the fictional setting of the game.
