For anyone who says Ant-man is the "worst super hero ever" or "looks stupid". That's probably exactly what Jack Kirby and Stan Lee said about everyone of their heroes. Then they got wasted and made them anyways.

Irony that some people should read a comic

I recommend Roll20 and/or Google Hangouts for online games. I've been running/playing a campaign with my home group via Hangouts for a few months now, and using Roll20 when we really want maps (though D&D 5th Edition can be played without maps; a.k.a. "theater of the mind"). Roll20 also has a built-in dice roller, which is good if you don't necessarily trust your players as much as I do mine. ;)

The Basic Rules are available on WotC's website, as other people have said. It doesn't have character creation rules, though, if I recall correctly.

The D&D Starter Box set is a good purchase, too. It has the basics of the rules as well as a pretty good adventure, Lost Mine of Phandalin, that could keep your group busy for a while. It also comes with a good-quality dice set. The price is really good for what it gives you: 
https://dnd.wizards.com/products/tabletop-games/rpg-products/rpg_starterset

(That said, it doesn't have character creation rules, either! The only place you'll find them for 5th Edition is in the Players' Handbook)

If you're in need of adventures, you can find a ton of them in PDF format on http://www.dndclassics.com/ They're almost all for older editions, but you can still take all of the adventure content and just give them 5th edition statistics.

You can find 5e-ready adventures written by third party authors on DriveThruRPG.

Personally, I would recommend looking up the OSR (Old School Revival/Renaissance/Rules) blogs and looking around them for inspiration if you need it. They're generally dedicated to earlier editions of the D&D rules, but I think you'll find yourself getting a lot of ideas from them anyway, and conversions are usually pretty simple; the OSR are usually a fount of inspiration. A lot of them connect at http://osrgaming.org/forums/ and
http://www.dragonsfoot.org/

There are several "retro-clones" online (legal copies of earlier editions of the game) free for download that you might find to your liking, and/or if you don't have the money to buy up the current 5th edition rulebooks. Some notable versions include Labyrinth Lord, Swords & Wizardry, Basic Fantasy RPG, and others. Google them and I imagine you should find them quickly enough.

Check out +Dyson Logos if you're looking for good blank maps to use for your own dungeons, ruins, and other sorts of D&D-adventurey places. He has a Patreon account, too, if you find his maps useful.

If you feel like getting involved with it, there's even an Adventurers' League community specifically for online play.

Here's the regular Adventurers' League community; they break them down further into regional areas:

And here's the AL Online community:
https://plus.google.com/communities/104095669932028051654

Hope this gives you some ideas. Welcome to the community of gamers, man!

Congratulations. Its been a long time coming but the law has finally caught up with the times. Like software, change can be unsettling and uncomfortable but ultimately it will make everyone involved a little happier in the long run. #lovewins  
In a landmark opinion, a divided Supreme Court on Friday ruled that same-sex couples can marry nationwide, establishing a new civil right and handing gay rights advocates a historic victory.

Hello everyone. I'm writing a paper for a class. I want to how my thesis sounds.

"Managing a (successful) software startup is like trying to get to the front page of Reddit everyday while you’re steering a sailboat with a hole at the bottom of it."

I need all the feedback I can get so please +1, share, or leave comments.

This is the greatest pizza on earth. No joke. I took one bite of of this immaculate work of art and my world was rocked. I saw colors I've never tasted before. Music sounds better with their pizza. If you had to choose between Game of Thrones or a slice of this stuff, I guess the Lanisters will have to wait another day. This stuff is even good microwaved. Yes, some of you might scoff at the idea. But I say your full of not this pizza so your opinion is worthless. Shut the hell up and eat this pizza. When you and your girl are sitting on the couch wondering what should go down, get this pizza on. When your feeling like fox news gots you down on life, eat this pizza. MOTHER OF GOD I LOVE THIS STUFF. #iwilleatthistillidie #truth #realpizza
