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

Now that I’m finally caught up on all of the official (and even the semi-official) D&D releases, I can finally jump back into the wonderful world of third-party supplements. To date, the only third-party D&D releases I’ve really discussed have been a handful of monster books by Kobold Press and the two Tal’dorei campaign settings. But there’s so much more...

Dungeons & Dragons: Castle Amber (Official 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: Journeys Through the Radiant Citadel

Today I’m going to take a look at the latest D&D release, Journeys Through the Radiant Citadel. This book, like a handful of other Fifth Edition D&D products, is a collection of small adventures. But unlike those other books, it can be argued that this release also serves as a new campaign setting as well. There’s thirteen adventure modules crammed...

Dungeons & Dragons: Mordenkainen Presents – Monsters of the Multiverse

For some time now I’ve been mentioning the upcoming “refresh” of Fifth Edition D&D. While the actual revamp of the core rulebooks is still a ways off, the first product in this new line of thinking is finally here; Monsters of the Multiverse! In reality, this book has been available for a while now as part of the Rules Expansion...

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...

Dungeons & Dragons: Expedition to the Barrier Peaks (Official Reprint)

Its no secret that I’m a big fan of the Original Adventures Reincarnated line by Goodman Games. To date, I’ve discussed the first two installments in this series. 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...

Dungeons & Dragons: The Isle of Dread (Official Reprint)

It’s been a while since I talked about Into the Borderlands, the first “Original Adventures Reincarnated” project. In case you missed it, that release was both an official reprinting and 5E conversion of a classic D&D adventure. It was a book that I was extremely excited about. I love retro D&D and it appears that I’m not alone in my...

Dungeons & Dragons: Strixhaven – A Curriculum of Chaos

In what is likely to be my final post for 2021, I’m going to end the year with a review of the latest Dungeons & Dragons supplement Strixhaven: A Curriculum of Chaos. At first glance, some players may be quick to assume that this book is just another attempt by WotC to shoehorn in more material from Magic: The Gathering...
