THEN MAYBE CHECK OUT…
The Player’s Companion contains four additional races and a slew of new elemental spells, while the Essentials Kit contains everything you’ll need to play D at the same level as the Starter Set.
AND IF YOU REALLY, REALLY WANT SOME EXTRA OPTIONS…
Volo’s Guide to Monsters is primarily a book for Dungeon Masters, but it does include some player content, such as goblin, orc, and other monster options. Check with your DM first to make sure an orc joining the party is okay.
BUT IF YOU’RE GOING TO BE THE DUNGEON MASTER…
The Dungeon Master’s Guide is the book that DMs need to run a game, as it delves deeply into the mechanics and details of the game. You’ll need this book to run almost any adventure, including the official published ones.
AND WHEN IT’S TIME FOR AN ADVENTURE…
There are currently several official hardcover adventure books available, with more on the way, and this is what I recommend for a good hardback adventure book, depending on your gaming group’s preferences.
AND IF YOU’RE DYING FOR MORE MONSTERS…
Mordenkainen’s Tome of Foes, which details nearly 400 new monsters for 5th edition, including dragons, demons, angels, and undead, is also a great book for DMs.
