The Dungeon Master may choose to deviate from the published rules or make up new ones if he or she feels it is necessary. The only items required to play the game are the rulebooks, a character sheet for each player and a number of polyhedral dice. The current editions also assume, but do not require, the use of miniature figures or markers on a gridded surface.
