I inherited the Dungeons and Dragons Player's Handbook Core Rulebook I from my friend who died recently, and I was really interested in learning how to play but I'm facing two problems
1) It's confusing as hell.
2) I don't know anyone besides my late friend who play/played that game.
So my question is, can somebody break it down for me? Or is there like some kind of faq that explains everything in simple terms so I can understand?
Also, how do I find other players?
