Vista, Princess Of Hell

May 13, 2022

She gazed into the brass mirror. For a moment her eyes lingered on the five dragons encircling the edge of the reflective surface. A gift from her adopted father. Beautiful, yes, but she often wondered if he gave it to her as a continuous reminder of half of her heritage and… eternal debt. She allowed […]

Trial of the Wizard King by Chad Corrie

August 11, 2021

Trial of the Wizard King by Chad Corrie is the second book in the Wizard King series. I am reading the first two books back-to-back which is a privilege I have rarely enjoyed of the past 10+ years of writing book reviews. After the Created Series which I read in order, I am finding I […]

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 […]

Tasha’s Cauldron of Everything

March 26, 2021

Tasha’s Cauldron of Everything was released before the end of last year. This book is hosted by Tasha who is a powerful witch raised by Baba Yaga herself. She gives a fun, if snarky, commentary throughout this manual. For game purposes, this new book is similar to Xanathar’s Guide to Everything, which means it is […]

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. Somewhat strangely, even though I have been a game […]

Dungeons and Dragons Mordenkainen’s Tome of Foes for 5E

August 7, 2020

This is the next in my series of reviews of Dungeons and Dragons 5E Manuals. It may end up being my last for a while for as far as I know, this is the final book which does not involve a locale or a module. I remain mostly uninterested in those things. My campaign worlds […]

Xanathar’s Guide to Everything

May 24, 2020

As the title suggests, Xanathar’s Guide to Everything Covers several major areas of interest for any Dungeons and Dragons player and even more so for a game master. Just how there is a little of everything in this book, I think anyone involved with playing 5E will be hard pressed to fail to find something […]

The Dungeons and Dragons, 5th Edition Monster Manual

March 31, 2020

The Dungeons and Dragons, 5th Edition Monster Manual was released from Wizards of the Coast a while ago. As mentioned in previous reviews, I have delved into the newest edition of Dungeons and Dragons with the goal of teaching my growing boys the playing style they are more likely to encounter out in their circles […]

Volo’s Guide to Monsters

February 20, 2020

Volo’s Guide to Monsters is an amazing addition to the Dungeons and Dragons 5e game. Unlike former monster manuals, it goes past giving the reader descriptions and stats, although it does do this as well. I enjoyed the manual for many reasons which I will detail below. 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 […]
