D&D Fantasy World
D&D exists since 1974. The original game became a foundation for many new versions, updates and fantasy worlds which is possible because of the simple game setup. The adventures are set by DM (Dungeon Master who is like a storyteller) and accomplished by players. The DM suggest the challenges, and players are forced to battle and complete quests.

It can last for months, and players can develop their characters, gain new experience, learn new skills, pick up loot, etc. Thus, 3D printed D&D terrain, dungeons, castles, tokens, various miniatures and characters become a valuable part of the game, its background and equipment, useful items and spells, enemies and supporters.

There are also several hundreds of monsters and fantasy creatures such as gnomes, half-orcs, elves, Dragonborn and humans. Besides, the D&D rules keep developing and extending beyond the world of Dungeons and Dragons, crossing with other famous universes such as Lord of the Rings, Dark Souls and Naruto, and growing with the fan-art and canon D&D artwork.
