Dungeons & Dragons: Baldur’s Gate – Descent into Avernus

For as long as I’ve been a fan of D&D, one aspect of the game lore has always been a favorite of mine: The Outer Planes. There’s just something about the idea of visiting what are essentially “other dimensions” that I find fascinating. Now, add in the fact that most of the planes are rooted …

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

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 …

Dungeons & Dragons: Xanathar’s Guide to Everything

Anyone who has followed D&D since the older days will recognize the words “Unearthed Arcana“. This was title of a rules supplement for the first edition of AD&D. That book added a plethora of new optional classes and rules to the core game. Over the years since, there have been other Unearthed Arcana books released …
