Dungeonology and this Dungeons & Dragons coloring book make for great coffee table accessories

Virtual tabletop program Fantasy Grounds has improved my D&D sessions

Over a year ago, I started writing about video games here at Destructoid. Since I had been playing a ton of the pen-and-paper-RPG Dungeons and Dragons, and digital games owed so much to that series, I figured I would attempt to write about ...   read

A crap-ton of Dungeons & Dragons news came out this week

Once again, I've been slacking when it comes to writing about Dungeons & Dragons news. Even arranging time to be the Dungeon Master in a Curse of Strahd campaign has proved difficult lately, but that doesn't mean I'm not excited about t...   read

Curse of Strahd seems like good goth-y D&D fun so far

Shame on me. I made a mental note to write about Curse of Strahd the day it came out last week, but GDC's chaos complicated my plans. I read about half of the new adventure book for Dungeons & Dragons while on Steven's futon betwee...   read

Someone made a Fallout-themed character sheet for D&D

I'm not quite convinced that Dungeons & Dragons can easily be converted to fit Fallout's classless (game-wise, not social stature-wise) RPG style, but that didn't stop a person on the internet from dreaming up this 'lil baby: Whil...   read
