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...

Dungeons & Dragons: Phandelver and Below – the Shattered Obelisk

For myself and many others, Wizards’ last D&D release was a bit of a dud. Well, it’s a new month and that means they have a new product in which they can try to redeem themselves. This time around, we are given an adventure book; Phandelver and Below: The Shattered Obelisk. If the name Phandelver sounds familiar, there’s a reason....

Dungeons & Dragons: Bigby Presents – Glory of the Giants

It’s been a long wait for the next official D&D product to drop! My last review for Keys from the Golden Vault was all the way back in March and since that time I’ve filled in the gaps by reviewing some good third-party releases. But, the wait is finally over and Bigby Presents: Glory of the Giants is here. I’ll admit,...

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

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...

D&D Alternatives: Pathfinder

As we approach the next iteration of Dungeons & Dragons, more and more players are starting to ask themselves a very important question: Do I stick with D&D or switch to something else? Once upon a time, such a question was silly. Yes, there’s always been a number of tabletop roleplaying games to choose from. But the majority of them...

Third Party D&D: Blue Rose Adventurer’s Guide (Green Ronin Publishing)

It’s no secret that I’m a fan of campaign settings. While it’s true that I spend most of my time in the Forgotten Realms, I do have grandiose plans to one day create my own gameworld. For this reason, I’m always certain to pick up and explore any new campaign settings that hit the market. For this reason, when I...

Third Party D&D: The Book of Fiends (Green Ronin Publishing)

Let’s cut right to the chase, the book I’m going to talk about today focuses on a subject that’s become rather taboo in our hobby; devils and demons. The book in question is The Book of Fiends. For me, one of the most fascinating concepts in all of Dungeons & Dragons is the mythical war between the powers of good...
