As I wrote about before, I recently got into 3d printing, picking up an Ender 3 Pro on Amazon for less than $300. Since then, I’ve printed out minis and terrain and I’m slowly getting the hang of this interesting new hobby. Check out what I cam up with… 3d printed supports and bases matching […]

3d printing and Dungeons & Dragons

3d printing has positioned itself as an emerging technology that could upend the way we approach D&D accessories and decorate our table. It is fascinating to watch how quickly it has grown and entered gaming culture, almost out of nowhere, and has led to people creating things for our games we thought were well out […]

Changing the way I use tokens

I’ve been looking at how I run my games lately. I’ve been thinking about minis, paper minis, and tokens, and what I want for my game and my table. Tomb of Annihilation has a SHIT LOAD of possible random encounters. It is a hex crawl after all…a damn good one, but a hex crawl nonetheless […]

Wizards of the Coast was kind enough to send over a box of Tomb of Annihilation goodies to review. I’m still digesting the adventure, including the D&D Beyond version I purchased, so that review is forthcoming (spoiler: the adventure is really good), but I thought I’d at least give you a look at the dice.
