A*B*Cs Hardcover | 1*2*3s Hardcover
Written by Ivan Van Norman
Illustrated by Caleb Cleveland
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Release Date: November 13, 2018

When I found out that Wizards of the Coast was releasing some awesome little storybook style Dungeons and Dragons primers for kids, I had to reach out to them and have some sent so I could review them. For you see, I just became a grandparent!

My little grandson, Braxton, absolutely had to help me with The A*B*Cs of D&D and The 1*2*3s of D&D. I mean, I have to start him off on the right path, right?

Star Wars: The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams

J.J. Abrams is behind some of the biggest pop culture shows and films of this century. From his humble start with Felicity then jumping into spy drama Alias, the mystery box LOST, then blockbuster films like Mission: Impossible III, Super 8, Star Trek, and, of course, Star Wars: The Force Awakens and the upcoming Star Wars: Episode IX. And now it looks like he is ready to take his reach a bit further.

According to new reports, the filmmaker is looking to sign an all-encompassing megadeal with any studio that would include giving him the power to do whatever he wants. More on the report, below.

Mordenkainen’s Tome Of Foes
Hardcover
D&D Accessory
Wizards Of The Coast
Release Date: May 29, 2018

As almost any tabletop gamer will tell you, game changes and additions will please some and anger others. This is true of technical expansions as well. Knowing this, I took to the shops and chatted with friends regarding the newest Dungeons & Dragons source book Mordenkainen’s Tome Of Foes. I had already heard from a couple of buddies that impressions were polarized after the exclusive release at hobby and game shops on May 18th, with the rest of the merchants shelving it on May 29th. With that in mind, I wanted to take a more critical look at it from the eyes and mouths of other gamers, but of course I will add my own impressions to the review.

Dungeons & Dragons Xanathar's Guide To Everything book banner

Dungeons & Dragons: Xanathar’s Guide To Everything
Hardcover
D&D Accessory
Wizards of the Coast
Release Date: November 21, 2017

Creating magic as they always do, the creative team at Wizards of the Coast has deemed the world worthy of a new guide book. Xanathar’s Guide To Everything is an essential addition to the world’s greatest roleplaying game, Dungeons & Dragons! And better yet, at least for me, these great folks sent me not just an advance copy but they, in fact, sent me two! One of each cover. But enough of my shameless bragging, let me tell you about this newest release!

This tome is comprised of almost 200 pages of lore, ranging from arcane spells and items to specialization and options within character classes. This is in addition to the additional material presented for Dungeon Masters. In fact, the supplemental book is broken into three primary parts with two additional appendices. So much is packed within these pages that I will probably not even begin to do it justice. Nevertheless, I will do my best.
