Dungeons & Dragons: Candlekeep Mysteries
Hardcover
D&D Accessory
Wizards Of The Coast
Release Date: March 16, 2021

Just in time for the beginnings of the end of COVID-19 (I hope), Wizards Of The Coast is releasing an exciting new source book that is near and dear to my heart. As a bibliophile, the entire concept of this new guide is literally warming my heart. Dungeons & Dragons: Candlekeep Mysteries is more than a bit different from the normal releases in that it takes a wider view and focuses on less minutia, like other campaign books have in the past. In fact, it is a collection of adventures all tied together, much like a previous release, Ghosts Of Saltmarsh, that I reviewed a couple of years ago. Read on, dear reader, for more information!

Holiday Geek Gift Guide 2020: Dungeons & Dragons
  |  @   |  

2020 has been a year to remember, of that there is no doubt. But while we have had to learn to social distance and protect one another by wearing masks, one thing has remained consistent: Wizards of the Coast (and others) delivered treasure after treasure throughout this year and it might be the only thing that has kept me sane. New Dungeons & Dragons books and accessories have been released that any player or Dungeon Master will want to add to their collection. Below are a few, and I do mean just a few, of the plethora of items from this pandemic-infested cycle. Undoubtedly, you will find something for a friend or family member, but do not forget to get yourself a little something, too!

Here’s the 2020 Holiday Geek Gift Guide: Dungeons & Dragons Edition.

Holiday Geek Gift Guide 2019: Dungeons & Dragons
  |  @   |  

What a huge year it was for D&D fans, as Wizards of the Coast had a mammoth amount of releases to celebrate the 45th year of Dungeons & Dragons in 2019. I think I managed to review most of these throughout the year with few exceptions. And in addition to the 45th anniversary of the world’s greatest role playing game, it was also the 5th anniversary of the 5th edition of the game. So lots of celebrations and a veritable goldmine for fans of the game.

If there is a tabletop gamer in your life, I bet you can find a little something for them from this list. Here’s the 2019 Holiday Geek Gift Guide 2019: Dungeons & Dragons Edition.

Dungeons & Dragons: Eberron: Rising from The Last War
Hardcover
D&D Accessory
Wizards Of The Coast
Release Date: November 19, 2019

Well met, adventurers! I hope this day finds you well. Our discussion today revolves around a world that has been around for well over a decade but has been revamped for the current incarnation of Dungeons & Dragons. I speak, of course, of Eberron: Rising From The Last War. A unique fan favorite, this release has a load of previously unavailable material for this current edition of the world’s greatest role playing game.

I am aware that there was an online supplement that introduced Eberron to the world of 5th Edition, but this tome is so much more. Whereas the other release was a constantly evolving set of documents, this new adventure book is all of that and more. If you will allow me a few minutes of your time, I will tell you all about it! This is most definitely not your standard fantasy setting, folks. Not by a long shot.

Can you believe it has already been five years since the latest edition of Dungeons & Dragons hit shelves all over the world? Not only has it become the most successful version of the world’s greatest role playing game, but it has become so inclusive that friends that never showed an interest prior are now playing the game.

I remember writing several articles back then about these upcoming releases from Wizards Of The Coast. You can journey back into the past and read one of them here. But there are some additions and changes that make this a worthy purchase; keep reading to find out what those are!
