    D&D 5E New Monster Manual Cover

    I do think all the standard covers have the problem of not really answering the question of "what the heck is going on in this scene?". I think the answer might be "nothing yet" because all the monsters and characters just have to stand there looking mean cause its not their turn yet until the...

    D&D 5E New Monster Manual Cover

    Wow, sick burn on Easley, a great artist. Anyway, taste is a funny thing. And art gets strong reactions when so much expectation is hanging on it. I will get the alt players handbook cover, cause it's awesome and cozy. I'll pick the standard Dungeon master's guide despite not really liking...

    D&D 5E New Monster Manual Cover

    The 2014 books, for all of their detractors do not have "posed" covers at all. They are all action scenes with a tight focus on a monster or a character right in the thick of it. No one is standing on the top of something looking cool, waiting for something to happen.

    D&D 5E New Monster Manual Cover

    The best way to play the Forgotten Realms is to reset the timeline to the grey box - it was jam packed with adventure hooks and news for the year 1358 DR and focused on the Dales region, which was a great starting area.

    D&D 5E New Monster Manual Cover

    Hey, an action scene! Still a kinda pose-ish action scene for the two central PCs, but this is pretty fun!

    D&D (2024) New Dungeon Master's Guide Cover Features Venger (From the D&D Cartoons)

    I dunno, three generic-ish figures posing with glow-ey power of various colors hovering... it's kinda the least dynamic scene in a while... Still gonna buy it, but it's a missed opportunity.

    Wizards Goes Big with Vecna: Eve of Ruin

    I think Radiant Citadel, Witchlight, and Call of the Netherdeep all show that Wizards still have the chops to write great stuff on a regular basis. Sounds like they kinda tripped over their own plot on this one.

    D&D (2024) New D&D Edition's Player’s Handbook Cover Reveal

    BTW, for those that wonder why D&D doesn't have any "iconic heroes" like the Marvel Universe, you don't understand the RPG medium. RPGs are a factory to produce characters and stories, not a finished story full of recognizable characters. You can't compare a medium where you are selling...

    WotC 2024 D&D Core Rules Will Be Added To SRD In 2025

    This is great news that WoTC is building on the positive moves they made early last year to get out of the OGL cancellation fiasco. It would be lovely of course if 5.2 was also released under the OGL 1.0a, for those combining newer and older content. If they can only see supporting one...

    Roll20 Announces Discord Activity Integration

    It's been rock solid for us too until yesterday .... my comment was just based on the irony of cancelling an RPG session based on each of those services failing us - in sequence - and then loading ENWorld to see the top story being them being combined :rolleyes:

    Roll20 Announces Discord Activity Integration

    LOL, given that Discord just had a major outage an hour ago during our D&D game, and Roll20 failed as a backup to allow us all to audio chat, I dunno what I think about them teaming up right now :p I mean I was researching how long it takes to set up a Mumble server... but we had to cancel the...

    D&D General How many DMs buy (official) adventures?

    I don't run the adventures, I only homebrew, but I do read them. I have bought or been given 4 of the hardbacks new. I have bought about twice that many books on the used market however, which won't show up in their sales numbers. There were some fine individual adventures in Radiant Citadel...
