Questions tagged [dungeons-and-dragons]

For meta questions specifically about Dungeons & Dragons. This tag should ideally be used only when the question concerns D&D as a whole (or editions thereof), not simply on any meta question related to a specific mainsite question about D&D. (See also: the [dnd-5e] tag on Meta.)
