As a kid, when I first heard of it, I had the same kind of questions, so let me elaborate a bit. I am by no means an expert though, but I think I can tell you the basic stuff so you get a general idea what a D&D game can look like.
Basically, there are books with lore / templates / general rules in them (they usually contain many example stories, enemy templates, example scenarios, etc.) but what it boils down is imagination.
The core of the game is the DM (Dungeon Master) who will basically interpret your dices rolls: maybe using the aid of a reference from the book as well, as to avoid being too "unrealistic" (if you require a very long jump and your character is physically fragile you should need a higher roll/there might be things you cannot possibly do). With that in mind, and the decisions each member of the group takes, he is supposed to build a story around some quest he had in mind.
Since that is such a vague concept, that leaves room for a lot of different experiences, which limits lies in the DM's imagination and creativity. Some DM's like to have more 'realistic' games, whereas some other DM's let even the craziest stuff happen for shits and giggles. Yes, usually people have character sheets in which they chose a certain number of atributes, a class, equipment, etc. but in the end it's all about being creative and trying to build a character you enjoy getting into.

Also, depending on how much of a specific game is based on pure imagination, the tools one may require for playing it range from just a piece of paper and a couple diece, to complex character sheets, many dice of different types and books with the story/rules/creatures/etc. in them.

a 1000 percent return on initial investment would be 5 dollars. In order to be considered a 100 percent return you have to "double" your initial investment. Each time you gain back the value of your initial investment, you got a 100 percent return. So if you double .50 10 times, you get 5 dollars. Which is a 1000 percent return. 5/.5 = 10 x 100(%) =1000. So, if he gets 3000 dollars (which is indeed .1 percent of 3 million), his return on investment is 600,000 percent. 3000/.5 = 6000 x100(%) = 600000.
Thought I'd explain it before you get attacked for not being able to do "muh maths"...
#110 - lenoco (06/11/2015) [-]
But... According to the equation you used there, (5/.5 = 10 x 100[%] = 1000), getting one dollar as a return from your investment would be a 200% return. (1/.5 = 2 x 100[%] = 200%) This makes sense, since a 100% return would mean that your investment was fully paid back. The rest of the math seems to check out, but I just wanted to point that out.
#113 - travishein (06/11/2015) [-]
That's exactly right. The return is money made from your initial investment, subtracting out the initial investment amount (or assuming that to be the "zero" point in your equation). 50 cents back to you would be 100 percent return, 1 dollar would be 200 percent return, 1.50 would be 300 percent return and so forth. That's what I meant by "Each time you gain back the value of your initial investment you get a 100 percent return". A 100% return on a 1 dollar investment would be 1 dollar, but you actually have 2 dollars. I excluded the original investment amount to just show the rate of return.
#116 - lenoco (06/11/2015) [-]
Ah, okay, that makes more sense. I was just wondering because you use that basis in the beginning, but not with the $3,000. Of course, doing the math for the amount of return from $2,999.50 instead of $3,000 is just a little bit more of a pain, so I can understand that.
