Does the table need to be like really large? I have a coffee table but I think I might need to get a real table lol.

It should work, but the DM should definitely keep the game hidden from the rest so he may or may not need a small table to himself. I keep all of my stuff in a binder while the players get full range of the table.

Alright, B&N has the 3 books for D&D 5e and me and my 2 friends are gonna all pitch in for all 3 books. How expensive are the presets usually?

I honestly just got the pdfs of everything and printed them. It was about 1000 pages, but a friends of mine just did it when she was at work for me. So I just gave her the paper and had her double side it.

Like, how would that work into it? I've never watched or know frankly anything about D&D. Is it something you read off as you play?
#15 - StealerShock (08/15/2016) [-]
Basically the published adventures give you a premade setting and quest for you to use with your players, most of them for 5e are designed to take you from level 1-10, and after that you will probably have enough experience to give running your own campaign a shot.

They contain info about the area the adventure takes place in, as well as what monsters, loot, and npc's you'll find there. It also tells you how those things will react to the players depending on how they behave.

tldr; it does most of the prep work for you, allowing you to focus on just running the game and making sure the players don't ruin the game too much with their bullshit.

Be warned though, while they take off the pressure of creating a setting by yourself, you need to read them over at least 2-3 times so you won't be surprised by anything if you players decide to go in a direction you didn't expect and end up in an area they weren't meant to be in yet. It also saves you breaking the flow of the game to scan through the book looking for the 'right' answer to their questions, it's often easier to make up the answer on the fly than see if there's one in the book, and just use the book for the overarching adventure

I've actually never ran a preset so all I can do is look at the prices on Wizard's of the Coast. They seem to be $40-50, but they're all newer. The store might have some older ones for cheaper.

So they are going to ask people to get 500,000 exp to get from level 30 to 31, and then remove the XP bonus from good throws? How grindy do they wan't the game to be?
