Third Party D&D: Deep Magic Vol. 1 & 2 (Kobold Press)

When it comes to third-party D&D publishers, Kobold Press is probably one of my favorites. Most players will know them from their Tome of Beasts books, but Kobold Press has been creating a variety of supplements since 5E first rolled out. Over the years, some of their most popular releases have been magic-themed. These released include new spells, background options,...

Dungeons & Dragons: Planescape – Adventures in the Multiverse

Out of all of the D&D releases that were announced for 2023, Planescape: Adventures in the Multiverse was the one that I was anticipating most of all. Yes, I was also pretty pumped for Spelljammer. But when put side-by-side, my excitement for Planescape beat out Spelljammer by a considerable distance. As an older gamer who spent lots of time with...

Third Party D&D: Rise of the Drow (Collector’s Edition) – (AAW Games)

Getting your hands on a new D&D supplement is always a good feeling. But getting your hands on one that you’ve been pining for feels even better. I know this because for quite some time I’ve had my eye on Rise of the Drow (Collector’s Edition) by AAW games. If you read my D&D reviews with any regularity, you may...

That’s right, today I’m going to talk about Dragonlance: Shadow of the Dragon Queen. But before I dive right in, I want to be clear about what this review is and what it isn’t. You see, there were two very...

Dungeons & Dragons: Castle Amber (Official 5E Reprint)

As an old school gamer, I’m a huge fan of the Original Adventures Reincarnated line by Goodman Games. I’ve reviewed the first four releases on this page before. But in case you’re unfamiliar it, the “OAR” project is an ongoing attempt to both preserve and modernize a number of classic D&D adventure modules. These releases typically include a reprint of...

Dungeons & Dragons: Essentials Kit

Having recently reviewed the two alternative starter sets for fifth edition D&D, I wanted to also take a moment to discuss another similar product; the D&D Essentials Kit. Now, I’ll be the first to address to elephant in the room. Do we really need another “starter” set for D&D? The original Starter Set was excellent. I understand that the Stranger...

Dungeons & Dragons: Call of the Netherdeep

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Critical Role has become a big deal for D&D. To date, we’ve seen the publication of one official and two unofficial Critical Role campaign books for fifth edition. This is no small accomplishment! The Explorer’s Guide to Wildemount brought the world of Critical Role into the official D&D cannon – something...

Both of which were legendary D&D modules of great renown. I’m happy to report that the trend continues with the third entry in this line up: Expedition to the Barrier Peaks. If...

Whenever I manage to get caught up on my reviews of official D&D products, I like to delve into the deep waters of third-party releases. To date, I’ve focused on releases from Kobold Press. This publishing house is renown for their quality products. As I’ve discussed on this site in the past, I’ve been extremely impressed with their monster collections;...
