Best D&D Campaigns for Beginners

Dungeons and Dragons campaigns for beginners
When you have newcomers at your table, you want to find the best campaigns for beginners. A player’s first game will determine whether or not they continue to adventure the Forgotten Realms and other regions or never pick a die again. While many dungeon masters like to play with their world, a pre-written campaign can be the easier starting point for new players. The Dungeon Mast can focus on making sure the experience is amazing without having to worry about the finer points of world-building. Here are the best campaigns that you should run with new players.

Curse of Strahd

Curse of Strahd is a remake and expansion of the original Ravenloft module. Taking place in the dark land of Barovia, the players are pitted against one of the most iconic characters in Dungeon & Dragons, Strahd von Zarovich. While one of the hardest campaigns, it is easy for Dungeon Master to run. In addition, this will be the perfect campaign if your new players are fans of the supernatural and horror genre.

Waterdeep: Dragon Heist

While a lot of adventures end up with the players saving the world from a great evil, Waterdeep: Dragon Heist provides a low-stakes and grounded story. This adventure allows players to get more comfortable with battle mechanics as they explore the intrigue that Waterdeep has to offer. Players can get their feet wet in the Forgotten Realms’ lore while searching for a stockpile of gold!

Candlelight Mysteries

While some DMs want to do extended stories, sometimes short adventures can be just the ticket to get new players invested. The Candlelight Mysteries module provides a variety of small, disconnected adventures that will allow new players to ease into playing Dungeons & Dragons with an anthology.
