Rattle Jik

April 12, 2021

Rattle Jik By Michael D. Griffiths The end of Rattle Jik’s black claw fiddled with the eye hole of a human skull. The colossal Emerald scaled dragon allowed just the tip of a satisfied smile to cross his scaly countenance. His idle state brought forth a recollection of his recent alliance not only to the […]

Dungeons and Dragons Dungeons Master Guide for 5E

August 31, 2020

Hey look, if anyone is paying attention, you might remember me stating the Mordenkainen’s Tome of Foes would be the last Dungeons and Dragons handbook I would be reviewing for a while, but I forgot about the Dungeon Master’s Guide which I had actually not finished.

Genre: Fantasy Role Playing Publisher: Wizards of the […]

Dungeons and Dragons Player’s Handbook for 5E

January 20, 2020

Let me back up before I move forward. I have just passed my 40th year of playing Dungeons and Dragons. When the first remake came out, at the time, I was angered over Gary Gygax being kicked out of his own company and the game becoming too politically correct. So I never added to my […]

The book is half an outline of how Dungeons and Dragons began, while the other half is one man’s journey through his personal role playing experience.     Genre:  Gaming Publisher: […]
