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: Starter Set (Stranger Things Ed.) & Dungeons & Dragons vs Rick and Morty

This is a post that I’ve put off writing for quite some time. I guess the reason for the delay was because I really didn’t know just what to make of these two products. They are definitely the black sheep of Fifth Edition D&D. But, there’s some pretty major changes coming to D&D in the very near future. (Some are...

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...

Dungeons & Dragons: Fizban’s Treasury of Dragons

The D&D world has been buzzing lately. In the last couple months, word has leaked that a revision of 5th Edition will be hitting the store shelves in the next couple years. Between now and then, Wizards of the Coast has promised to take 5E to places that fans have been asking for since its inception. Of course, they’ve not...

Dungeons & Dragons: The Wild Beyond The Witchlight

It is no secret that the fanbase for Dungeons & Dragons has changed dramatically in the last several years. When I was kid just learning the ropes, the majority of D&D players were old wargamers who were more interested in number crunching and dungeon crawling than in actual role playing. These days, thanks to services like Youtube and Twitch, the...
