Dungeon & Dragons’ Ring of Protection

In the fifth edition of Dungeons & Dragons, players can obtain a Ring of Protection, which provides magical protection to the wearer.

Overview

Dungeons & Dragons is a popular roleplaying game. It is about storytelling in worlds of swords and sorcery. Similar to games of make-believe, Dungeons & Dragons is driven by imagination. It is about picturing a collapsing castle in a dark forest and imagining how a fantasy adventurer might react to the challenges it presents. In this fictional world, the possibilities are limitless.

However, unlike a game of make-believe, Dungeons & Dragons gives structure to the stories. This can be seen as a way of determining the consequences of the adventurer’s actions. Players thus roll dice to determine whether their attacks hit or miss. Additionally, it determines whether their characters can roll away from the strike of a magical bolt, scale a cliff or pull off a dangerous task.

It is important to note that anything is possible, however, the dice make some things more predictable than others. It is recommended that new players first learn and understand the rules before playing Dungeons & Dragons.

Additionally, new players need to know the role of the players and the role of the Dungeon Master. The following table indicates the description of each of the roles:

Role of the players Role of the Dungeon Master
– Players can take on the role of a devout cleric, a spellcasting wizard, a skilled fighter or a deadly rogue.

– The first step players need to do is to imagine and create a character of their own. Players can choose a race and class. While they can invent the appearance, backstory and personality of the character. Once completed, the character represents the player in the game.

– Along with some friends and imagination, players can venture on grand quests and daring adventures.

– It is important to note that one player in the group takes on the role of the Dungeon Master (DM). This person is seen as the game’s lead storyteller and referee. The DM is thus in charge of the adventure, which appears in the adventure book. While the characters navigate the adventure’s hazards and choose where to explore.

– The DM also determines the results of the adventurers’ actions. Additionally, the DM narrates what the characters experience.

– It is important to note that the DM can improvise to react to anything the players attempt. This means that Dungeons & Dragons is very flexible and that each adventure can be unexpected.

During the game, players can equip their characters with various gear, weapons and accessories. One of the accessories players can use is the Ring of Protection.

Ring of Protection

The Ring of Protection is a rare jewellery item in the fifth edition of Dungeons & Dragons. It is believed that it provides magical protection to the wearer and that they come in a variety of enchantment levels.

Mechanics

If a character wears the ring, they will receive an additional plus one armour class (AC) bonus, as well as a plus one bonus to their saving throws. However, prior to the fifth edition, the rings of protection had variations, ranging from plus one to plus five. The old rings also provided a deflection in AC while it did not stack with other sources of deflection AC. Additionally, they did not provide bonuses to saving throws. Players thus wore the Cloak of Resistance to obtain saving throws bonuses.

In the fifth edition of Dungeons & Dragons, players can only equip the plus one ring of protection. This means that plus two and plus three rings are not in the fifth edition. These rings would be too powerful, due to the bounded accuracy. That being said, most people implement homebrew rules and craft stronger versions with better bonuses.

It is important to note that players cannot attune to more than one copy of the same item. This means that players cannot be attuned to two Rings of Protection.

Conclusion

Dungeons & Dragons is a well-known roleplaying game. It focuses on storytelling in worlds of sorcery and swords. It is believed that it is very similar to games of make-believe, as it is driven by imagination. However, Dungeons & Dragons gives a structure to the stories by using dice.

Players are able to either take on the role of a character or the role of a Dungeon Master. It is recommended that new players take on the role of a character until they have learned all the roles of the game. During the game, players can obtain various items, one of which is the Ring of Protection. This rare jewellery item provides a magical protection and additional bonuses to the wearer.
