- DnD can also refer to the Pen and Paper Role-playing game Dungeons and Dragons by Wizards of the Coast (Formerly TSR Hobbies)
DND is a game written by Daniel Lawrence in BASIC for the TOPS10 but was quickly ported to RSTS BASIC Plus midway through development.
While some can consider DND (and variants) a Roguelike, it predates, and hence cannot have been inspired by, Rogue. The most notable non-roguelike feature is the absence of a tactical map. Instead, combat and movement is done in a room-by-room fashion. The program does appear to introduce itself with the text "Welcome to Dungeons and Dragons!"
The original DND appeared to have three classes: Fighter, Cleric, and Magic User.
DND spawned numerous variants.
