I have been seeing a lot of posts lately about people who want to get into roleplaying. Naturally, they look to the latest iteration of the great grand-daddy of them all, Dungeons & Dragons (4th Edition).

The purpose of this geeklist is to lay down all the options that new players have for starting D&D 4th edition. Wizards of the Coast has been criticized as of late for having too many options which often confuses new players.

I ask for the help of senior RPGGers to post their thoughts and feelings about all the options new players have and to suggest the best way for new players to begin their journey into the world of D&D.

Also, here is a list of the best level 1 adventures with commentary from RPGGers.
