Dungeons & Dragons: Candlekeep Mysteries

One of my favorite things about fifth edition D&D is the new trend of publishing adventure collections in a single book. We’ve seen this in releases like Tales from the Yawning Portal and Ghosts of Saltmarsh. Well, once again Wizards of the Coast has given us a new collection to dig into with the release of Candlekeep Mysteries. Candlekeep is...

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: Starter Set

As I promised a few months ago, I’m going to be making posts discussing each of the official Dungeons & Dragons supplements that are available. To date, I’ve only really discussed the core rule books and player supplements. But there’s a number of other products available. Today, I’ll be discussing the D&D Starter Set. I want to start by discussing...

Everything they’ve put out in the meantime has either been adventure modules or campaign source material. But finally we have something of interest to talk about;  Volo’s Guide to Monsters. What we...

Dungeons & Dragons: Dungeon Master’s Guide 5E

Confession time! Even though I was thoroughly enjoying my weekly D&D game, I missed a week back in the fall due to family vacation and I have not played since. The thought of missing a week’s worth of content discouraged me a bit. I guess that’s the drawback to playing a sanctioned game; it goes on with or without you....

Dungeons & Dragons: Monster Manual 5E

A brief update here on D&D related things. I’m still attending and enjoying the D&D Encounters at my local games store. I’ve found that buying the “grab bag” boxes of miniatures can be quite addicting… So far I’ve managed to acquire a few neat pieces though. Recently, I got my hands on the new version of the Monster Manual and...

Dungeons & Dragons: 5E Player’s Handbook and Adventuer’s League experiences

Last Wednesday I played my first actual game of Dungeons & Dragons in almost twenty years. As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve had an interest in Dungeons & Dragons since I was around eleven years old. I played my first games with some family friends, a bunch of young AirForce guys. Through them, I learned the basics. We played a few...
