This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

    This is an extremely broad question. We probably cannot answer this as it stands, as the answer won't fit in the character limit. Also, there is the start of a second question in your post, but each question should only contain a single problem, so it probably needs to be removed or moved to a separate question. You can get more information on how this site works on help center. Welcome to the community :) – Erik Dec 4 at 16:07

    We have a couple of questions about how to learn the basics of playing D&D, and how to learn to DM. I’ve linked this question to those since I believe they already answer it. If they don’t answer your question, please feel free to edit your question to make it clear how it’s a new and different question! Thanks! – SevenSidedDie Dec 4 at 16:31

    (I also removed the second question; we do just one question per post. You can always post a separate question.) – SevenSidedDie Dec 4 at 16:32
