Third Party D&D: Tome of Beasts II (Kobold Press)

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;...

Dungeons & Dragons: Van Richten’s Guide to Ravenloft

For me, Ravenloft has always been one of the most fascinating settings for Dungeons & Dragons campaigns. Ever since I was a kid, I’ve had a fascination with gothic horror. This is something that originally stemmed from viewing old Universal Monster movies as a young child. Then, around the age of thirteen I got my hands on an old copy...

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...

Dungeons & Dragons: Into the Borderlands (Official Reprint)

This is a post that I’ve been wanting to write for sometime. Now that I’m all caught up on my current D&D releases, this is a good time to take a look at some of the “deep cuts” that are floating around bookstore shelves. In the past, I’ve discussed two third-party D&D books; the Tome of Beasts and the Creature...

Dungeons & Dragons is more popular than ever. As a result, fans are clamoring for more options than what can be found within the covers of the basic Player’s Handbook. Since the release of the 5th Edition of D&D, there’s been a handful of releases that provided a few new options here and there. But up until now, only the...

Icewind Dale; one of the northernmost reaches of the Forgotten Realms. An area famous for being an untamed artic wilderness filled the frightening monsters and undiscovered treasures. It’s an isolated region where only the hardy survive. Its frigid environment makes it the perfect setting for this time of year. So it’s fitting that it is also one of WotC’s most...

It’s been a few months since I’ve made a Dungeons & Dragons related post. But I’m back today to discuss one of the latest D&D releases, The Mythic Odysseys of Theros. Now, this is a book that I wasn’t really sure about before I actualyl got my hands on it. The marketing materials that came out in advance of this...

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...
