    One D&D Survey Feedback: Weapon Mastery Spectacular; Warlock and Wizard Mixed Reactions

    My biggest gripe with the spellcasters in this UA (that unfortunately bled into the following UA, though less egregiously) is the fact that they're touting extra spells known (spells which, at the time, were exclusive to them in the Arcane/Divine/Primal list system) as full class features when...

    D&D 5E Check Out Some (Minor) Monster Reveals From Bigby Presents: Glory of the Giants!

    Do you know what mods they were in off the top of your head? I'd love to read them over, even if they're just relegated to (use [this or that giant] stat blocks), I could use death giant-related storytelling fuel for one of my campaigns.

    D&D 5E Upcoming D&D Tidbits: Phandelver, Book of Many Things, Venger, & More!

    Well, I went back and watched the video where they first announced it (Wizards Presents 2022), but apparently they do just say full campaign. And that is fair; There's no precedent for an "entire campaign" to go all the way to 20, especially how 90% of their other modules don't go to 20th level...

    D&D 5E Upcoming D&D Tidbits: Phandelver, Book of Many Things, Venger, & More!

    There was some confusion about it, so for anyone curious; The Phandelver adventure was advertised as being a full 1-20 campaign module, which not only makes the fact that they're cramming the whole original start set adventure into it impressive (considering the next longest adventure book...

    D&D Mysteries of the Multiverse Reveal

    Acq Inc. just had a game this past weekend that took place on Greyhawk and also featured pieces of the obelisks. Historically, Chris Perkins and Jeremy Crawford have used the promotional games to tie into and be backdoor pilots for current and upcoming story content, so I'd say the reality of it...

    D&D Movie/TV Honor Among Thieves Monster Minis Set

    For those discussing price, here's a breakdown of what it would cost to get those minis as singles if you didn't want to buy that pack on its release date (using MiniatureMarket for prices, though they admittedly undercut a lot of other online storefronts for prices except eBay): Owlbear: $8.50...

    D&D Movie/TV D&D: Honor Among Thieves Superbowl Spot

    God that'd be so funny, imagine a less intense Blood Bowl made just for a sight gag or a one-off joke about the Super Bowl, it'd be the biggest waste of resources but I'd laugh so damn hard.

    Kyle Brink (D&D Exec Producer) On OGL Controversy & One D&D (Summary)

    It's not unrealistic to assume the first draft was probably handed down by someone at or above Kyle's level, or perhaps just an outside source that lacks a full understanding of TTRPGs. The way the response is structured, when it reached WoTC's hands and they had the power to say no to it to...

    Marvel Multiverse RPG Brought Forward & New X-Men Expansion

    I was of the understanding that it actually is going to be MCU canon, insofar as the show itself is part of the fictional universe and there's a reason the "real life" X Men sold their likenesses to have a show about them made.

    D&D Movie/TV Here Come The D&D Movie Gaming Tie-Ins!

    This warns the Magic player in me that there'll probably be a Secret Lair drop in March that includes a crossover for the movie, not that Ultra Pro hasn't made accessories specifically for D&D before but that art on the binder/playmat looks better than your standard run of the mill concept art.

    D&D General Is D&D Survey Feedback Read? [UPDATED!]

    It's been pretty common knowledge that UA surveys are an imperfect system, Mike Mearls (back before he got rightly stuffed in a drawer in a cubicle somewhere in the offices never to see the light of day again) once said in a tweet that while Surveys are invaluable for gathering data, the way the...

    D&D General Lego Dungeons & Dragons Contest Winner Announced!

    Correct! LEGO Ideas is a platform through which people can design sets, even ones based on IPs, vote for them as a community, and if there's enough traction, LEGO will either make the set (if it's wholly original or detached from any copyright or trademark) or reach out to whoever owns or...

    One D&D Cleric & Revised Species Playtest Includes Goliath

    I think because Pathfinder took Goblins into its core assumption, they probably weren't going to pursue that so as to keep things as distinct from Pathfinder as possible.

    WotC On One D&D Playtest Survey Results: Nearly Everything Scored 80%+!

    I was pretty critical of a lot of little things (not normally with UA but especially with OD&D so far) and I fill out every survey, but I also love filling out surveys so I acknowledge I am probably just an outlier.

    Dragonlance Dragonlance Adventure & Prelude Details Revealed

    What's the name of that one? I could use it, not that I will ever find a party that wants to play Witchlight, but it'd be nice to have just in case.

    WotC Ray Winninger Steps Back From WotC

    Something to consider; The playerbase at 5e's launch was a ghost of what it was today. They repackaged the core rulebooks once in 2018 (to capitalize on those who followed Critical Role all the way through their first campaign and into the second), and I'd wager that a fair share of current...

    One D&D Expert Classes Playtest Document Is Live

    My biggest gripe with what they got for us this time is that while I don't mind the move to prepared casters preparing as many spells as they have slots per level, it's not very clear just by reading it and the fact that a prepared caster can cast any spell they've prepared using an...

    D&D Celebrity Satine Phoenix & Husband Jamison Stone Accused Of Abuse Towards Freelancers

    Funny you should mention that, I believe the week before Origins she was going up to bat for someone in the sphere that was under fire, though I don't remember what for. I'm sure one of the comments on these many, many threads documenting her behavior mentions it offhandedly because it was...

    D&D 5E D&D Beyond Giving Away Acquisitions Inc and Phandelver For Free!

    Well that's worrisome. I can't tell what other products aren't immediately available to me, but maybe they're hiding in my library now that I went to the website proper and nabbed them. I mean, I also own the physical copies so it's not like I'm depending on having digital ones anyways 😅 EDIT...
