NewbieDM Review: D&D Essentials Kit

June 23, 2019 by

6

I was lucky enough to snag a copy of the new D&D Essentials Kit at Target a few days before release date, and I unboxed and reviewed it on twitter. If you’re wondering how this compares with the other 5e box, the D&D Starter Set, my opinion would be that this is definitely the better […]

3d printing and Dungeons & Dragons

October 29, 2018 by

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 […]

If you’ve been following me or this blog for a while, you know I love creating things for my games. DIY has been a big part of D&D since the beginning, and I’ve always found that aspect of the hobby to be a fun one. As I was planning my Tomb of Annihilation campaign, (reviewed […]

WOTC has released their latest Dungeon Tiles set, Shadowghast Manor.  This set is certainly nice to look at, it’s basically a large manor or mansion, with the underground catacombs for it on the flip side.  I think that owning two sets of this would probably get you more use out of it though. The tiles […]

Star Wars d6 via Maptool

October 9, 2011 by

The other night I played in a Star Wars d6 game (run by Mark Meredith of Dice Monkey) via Google+ Hangouts.  Since I have an older PC, the experience for me was less than stellar, as G+ Hangouts uses webcams, audio, filesharing, and it all hogs too much of my resources.  Afterwards I mentioned to […]
