Dungeons & Dragons: Acquisitions Incorporated

Of all the fifth edition D&D products released so far, Acquisitions Incorporated is the first one I considered passing up. Compared to other D&D supplements, this one seems a little odd. You see, while most supplemental material focuses on serious things like new campaign settings and cultures, this one strikes a comical tone and introduces …

Dungeons & Dragons: Ghosts of Saltmarsh

All has been silent on the D&D front for the last few months. So far in 2019, we’ve only had one real official release, and that was merely a revamp of the 5th Edition Starter Set. The good news is, all of that is about to change. Now that the month of June is upon …

Third Party D&D: Creature Codex (Kobold Press)

Recently, I posted a review for a third-party D&D supplement from Kobold Press; Tome of Beasts.  Today, I want to discuss the second monster book in their series – Creature Codex. Like its predecessor, Creature Codex started as a Kickstarter project. The campaign was a brilliant success! In fact, it even met several stretch goals …

Third Party D&D: Tome of Beasts (Kobold Press)

It’s been a couple of months since I talked about Dungeons & Dragons. This has been primarily because of two things. First, it’s been extremely difficult for me to find time to play with my current work schedule. In fact, my family and I have not had a session since October. Second, there’s been no …

Dungeons & Dragons: Guildmasters’ Guide to Ravnica

Ever since Wizards of the Coast purchased D&D back in 1999, I’ve often wondered if they would ever consider merging it with their flagship trading card game Magic the Gathering. Well, it took almost twenty years, but with the release of the Guildmasters’ Guide to Ravnica, it has finally happened. That’s right, the lore-rich world …

Dungeons & Dragons: Waterdeep – Dungeon of the Mad Mage

I’ve been a fan of D&D for nearly all of my life. And in that time I’ve dabbled a bit with every version of the game. With that in mind, I can honestly tell you that 5E has been my absolute favorite edition of the game. And Waterdeep: Dungeon of the Mad Mage is a …

Dungeons & Dragons: Waterdeep – Dragon Heist

It’s been a while, but we finally have a new Dungeons & Dragons adventure to sink our teeth into. Now, I admit that I probably won’t get around to actually running this adventure for quite a while. But let me just state up front that Waterdeep – Dragon Heist is probably one of the most …

D&D: Family Game – Lost Mine of Phandelver (pt 2)

It’s been about two months since I first shared my progress on my family’s D&D adventures. Unlike many D&D players who can clock in whole afternoons or weekend-long marathon sessions, my family typically only has a few hours a week in which to play. So it’s taken us about two months to get about six-eight …

D&D: Family Game – Lost Mine of Phandelver (pt 1)

If you follow the Dungeons & Dragons posts on this site, then you’ll know that my ultimate plan has always been to chronicle an ongoing D&D campaign. Ever since I was first introduced to the game as a child, I’ve been a rabid fan. However, my desires to play were often squashed by my inability …

Dungeons & Dragons: Mordenkainen’s Tome of Foes

I’ve been waiting a couple of months before posting a discussion of this book so that I could fully digest its contents. Mordenkainen’s Tome of Foes is not your everyday D&D release. Aside from a few optional races/subraces, there’s not much here for players to enjoy. Instead, it is a book that is aimed mainly at …
