This application profile project examines one of the first and most famous RPGs, Dungeons and Dragons (D&D). Dungeons and Dragons originated in the 1970s. It started with a singular book and has now become a massive enterprise. This explosion of popularity is complete with multiple versions of its handbook, supplemental guides, the existence of "homebrew" rules (rules created by players for their own game with no revenue objective), models, videos of gameplay, movies, character game pieces, die pieces, tabletop world/landscape pieces, concept art, and memorabilia.
This application profile is designed to be used by players of D&D and fans of the franchise in all its forms (movies, ephemera, etc.) Researchers will be able to make connections between dates and versions of handbooks, locate specific versions of copyright terms and conditions, and even find ephemera, like apparel, that may no longer exist but has still been documented. This profile will make searching for D&D and D&D adjacent materials easier for all of these individuals.
This standard allows for the documentation of a large variety of objects and includes multiple version formats of the same object.
