The Hidden Halls of Hazakor 5th Edition Adventure Up On Kickstarter

I’m sure many of us can remember back to the first RPG adventure we tried to run or played in. It might’ve been something you came up with, yourself, or it might’ve been a pre-generated adventure. If you were pretty young, you might not have fully understood how things worked, as the book was more-than-likely not written with a new player in mind. Well, the Hidden Halls of Hazakor, a new 5th edition adventure up on Kickstarter, is written not just for new players, but new dungeon masters as well.

Ultimate NPCs for 5th Edition Up On Kickstarter

As I’ve said time and time again, having more resources for the GM is never a bad thing. They have an entire universe to populate while the players have to only worry about their own characters. I know I’ve struggled to come up with all the NPCs that my group might encounter along the way. So it’d be handy to have something like the Ultimate NPCs Guide that’s up on Kickstarter now. It’s over 200 pages of pre-built characters of many different levels you can just drop into your game.

The new format for the campaign setting book is up on Kickstarter now.

D&D Icons of the Realms: Classic Creatures Now Available From WizKids

I love to use minis when doing my RPGs. It gives everyone a sense of where people are in the encounters, as well as can help make things feel a bit more “real.” What I hate is when I have to use the wrong mini for something because I don’t have the right one. Or you’ve got several that all look the same and you mix up which is which. Well, WizKids is here to help, as they’ve released their D&D Icons of the Realms: Classic Creatures set. This brings a bunch of baddies to your tabletops with new sculpts to help them stand out from previous iterations.

Those Dam Goblins RPG Adventure Up On Kickstarter

It seemed like a nice place, at the time. A valley that had a bit of a swamp problem, but nothing that couldn’t be fixed without a little dam. It turned the valley into a rather productive one, agriculturally-speaking. But now, there’s rumbling in the hills around the valley. Goblins.
Those Dam Goblins is a new fantasy adventure for various systems that’s up on Kickstarter now.

Masters and Minions gives GMs stats and rules for using NPCs and villains, along with their followers, in your games.

Wyrmkeep Dungeons BW3: The Beast Below D&D Adventure Up On Kickstarter

I’m a big fan of anything that makes the job of a GM easier. Having been one, in many game systems, for decades at this point, I love when I get something that streamlines the process for everyone. And pre-made adventures are great at that. In this case, we’ve got The Best Below, a 5th Edition adventure for characters of 1st to 3rd level. It’s up on Kickstarter now.

Seems we’ve got a couple Dungeons & Dragons releases today that aren’t actually Dungeons & Dragons releases. In this case, it’s the Tomb of Annihilation set for Dice Masters.

Heroes Wanted: Dragonfire Dungeons & Dragons Deck-building Game Now Available

Sometimes you want to get your D&D on and your group’s not there. Maybe you’re waiting for them to show up. Maybe you weren’t able to get everyone together. Maybe it’s not your regular gaming day.

Do you like RPGs? Do you like George Wendt? Would you play RPGs with George Wendt? Would you play a bean-eating RPG with George Wendt? Does anyone out there get these references?

Dungeons & Dragons is a great game. However, it can, occasionally, be rough to try and keep up with everything for it.

That’s where the D&D Beyond set of digital tools comes in. You can get it now.

WizKids Announces D&D Icons of the Realms Epic Level Starter

A Touch of Class: 7 New Classes for 5th Edition Up On Kickstarter

When playing Dungeons & Dragons, your class is pretty important. Even your race or alignment really isn’t quite as important for your character as your class is. Those others might come up from time to time, but your class comes up pretty much any time you roll the dice. As such, picking just the right class for you is important. Well, EN Publishing has been coming out with various classes for their Patreon backers. Now, they’re updating those and putting them together in a single book called A Touch of Class. It has 7 fully fleshed-out classes that you can use in your games. The book’s up on Kickstarter now.

Forest Kingdom Campaign Compendium Up On Kickstarter

Though I’ve not gone in quite some time, I do enjoy camping. Going out there into the woods and getting back to nature. Just gotta watch out for all the forest creatures and make sure you’re not invading their territory. It’s bad enough with bears and cougars and such, but then you’ve gotta watch out for elves and faeries and other Fey creatures. If you’re up for doing such, though, in your Pathfinder or Dungeons & Dragons games, you might want to pick up the Forest Kingdom Campaign Compendium that’s up on Kickstarter now.
