I play dnd 5e with a group of friends. Obviously, we each have our own character sheets, dice, etc.
I have never played gloomhaven, but am thinking of purchasing it to play at home with my family. It is, I believe, an rpg adventuring board game - pretty unusual, but sounds interesting, and it is after all the highest rated game on Boardgamegeek...
I was wondering how similar Gloomhaven is to DnD and how compatible they are. Is it possible to use DnD dice and characters for Gloomhaven? Will the level advancement and difficulty level make sense? This would allow for some personalizing, and would allow us to get into and understand the game before reading the full directions on how to play (for some of my more lazy family members).
Also, please note that I have pretty much no idea how gloomhaven works, so start with the basics when comparing them.
