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 in real-world mythology and you...

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 a concept best described as...

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 resulting in a few additional...

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 new products released in 2019....

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 of Ravnica is now an...

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 intriguing and well written modules...

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 hours of playtime in. But...

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 to find other like-minded people....
