Dungeons & Dragons logo

I don’t know whether to be excited or frightened, but there is a new Dungeons & Dragons movie coming to the silver screen in the near future. I mean, after all, each of the previous films have been lackluster to say the least. Other than that Wrath Of The Dragon God one, which was only kind of myeh.

Now the big deal here is budget, because it looks like Warner Bros. and Hasbro have decided to take this one a bit more seriously than the last ones. There is an entire army of fans out there that are more than willing to shell out some hard-earned cash to see the movie they (we) have all been dreaming about.

Dungeons & Dragons Princes Of The Apocalypse
Hardcover
Wizards Of The Coast
Release Date: April 7, 2015
Cover Price: $49.95

Nothing could have surprised me more recently than coming home after work to find a package from Wizards Of The Coast waiting for me on my porch. And, like a toy obsessed 3-year-old, I immediately tore into my new arrival. What did I find, you ask? Well, an advanced copy of Princes Of The Apocalypse hardback Dungeons & Dragons adventure, of course.

Seriously, tell me you knew that…I mean, it IS the title of this article. Anyway, I soon realized that I had a very limited amount of time to compose this review, so I hunkered down and read it non-stop, forgoing sleep and food in my quest to embrace this newest gift. Okay, maybe I slept. And I certainly ate. Don’t judge me, food is important. But I did read it, just not in one sitting.

Elemental Evil Header

That’s right, you read that correctly. One of my favorite Dungeons & Dragons adventure modules of all time is back in action. If you have never had the joy (and horror) of playing The Temple of Elemental Evil then I pity you; it was an awesome adventure that I spent many an afternoon and evening exploring.

This newest incarnation titled Elemental Evil is sure to impress just as much as its ancestor did thirty years ago. Dear lord, has it really been thirty years? Geez, I’m old! I’m sure as we have all come to expect from Wizards of the Coast, it’s going to be an epic event in 2015. Read on for more details!

Dungeons & Dragons Monster Manual
Hardcover
Wizards Of The Coast
Release Date: September 30, 2014
Cover Price: $49.95

The second of three core books from Dungeons & Dragons has arrived (you might remember me mentioning it in this article here)! Today we welcome the Monster Manual to our D&D rulebook collections. Wedged between the covers of this tome we find classic monsters along with a plethora of less common creatures. In total, more than one hundred fifty types of beasties are compiled here. But it’s more than just statistics here, many of the entries are steeped in legend and lore.

Included within these pages are twelve different dragons, over half a dozen giantkind, and a multitude of demons and devils. Creatures unique to Dungeons & Dragons like beholders, displacer beasts and mind flayers are also given space within this compendium. Orcs, kobolds, ogres, and the like are in here, too. And no monstrous book would be complete with the ever popular goblin and related kin. I could go on and on, but there is no need. Suffice to say there is a wide array of creatures that any Dungeon Master will be happy to throw at hapless adventurers.

Player’s Handbook
Dungeons & Dragons
Hardcover
Wizards of the Coast
Release date: August 19, 2014

Two weeks ago, I arrived home to find a package from Wizards Of The Coast on my doorstep. Having just reviewed the Dungeons & Dragons Starter Set a few weeks earlier, I knew what this was. I immediately ripped the envelope open and found not one but two books inside! Today’s article is about the first one, the D&D D&D Player’s Handbook! The newest incarnation of a game book that I have been using for the better part of my life and it was all mine. If you are having trouble understanding how I felt, just imagine Gollum holding the One Ring and you aren’t far off. In fact, I probably cackled a bit without even thinking about it.

Dungeons & Dragons Gets A New Logo (Gallery)

Dungeons and Dragons

As I mentioned last week, there’s a lot going on in the world of Dungeons & Dragons this summer. Not the least of which is their new logo! And though I only briefly mentioned it in my article, more information has been made available that you might find interesting.

The new logo is cool; I like the way each letter has a spike (or two) coming off of it. Makes it seem more diabolical, I suppose. But the big news rests on the little symbol between the words, the ampersand. It is this small piece of the logo that has the largest impact. Polarizing fans the world over, this logogram was designed by Glitschka Studios at the behest of Hasbro. But what they created was just the start; Hasbro altered the ampersand by giving it more depth through a more artistic rendering. The final addition is the change of coloration, turning a flat single colored item into a chromed multidimensional version.
