Ready Review & Compare: Dungeon Master’s Screen Reincarnated

We’re hot off the heels of one of the most anticipated releases from Wizards of the Coast. No, not Tomb of Annihilation, the Dungeon Master’s Screen Reincarnated! Since the release (and disappointment) of the first DM Screen for 5e, fans have been clamoring for an upgrade with more relevant information to use.

Of course, many DMs make their own screen or buy a customizable one, filling them with homemade or downloaded charts and rules references. But for those who like the official screens or just like the layout (4 landscape panels is amazing), this “reincarnated” DM screen may be just what you’re looking for. Read More

We’re back with another Adventure Seeds list! This time we dare the frozen wastes and all the perils that present themselves in such an environment. I don’t DM cold environments too often, so this one was a fun challenge for me, forcing me to think harder than usual.

Unlike my previous few, I don’t have a ton of assumptions about the frozen wastes overall, other than it is mostly desolate and covered in snow. The existence of villages, if it’s on the water or inland, and so on are on a per seed basis and can be easily changed to fit your needs. Read More

X-Wing: “Launching,” “Reveal” Bombs, a Preview of the Resistance Bomber Wave XIII (13), and Speculation on the Guns for Hire Release Date and FAQ

Last week, we previewed the TIE Silencer.  Now it’s time to “Finish What [We] Start[ed]” and preview the B/SF-17 Resistance Bomber!

We’ve known about the Resistance Bomber since the Star Wars: The Last Jedi Official Trailer back in April.  Aesthetically, this ship is nowhere near as cool-looking as the TIE Silencer.  It kind of looks like a B-Wing that has fallen on its back and can’t get up.

While the X-Wing community was still reeling from Assault. Gunboat. Hyyyyype (skip to 1:00:46), FFG was cleverly plotting the release of a ship that we have only known about for less than two months.

UA Art

It’s a new month, and that means new playtest content for us to enjoy! September’s Unearthed Arcana brings us two new playable races that seem pretty great at first glance.

We’re going to take a deeper look at the options presented, which are the Eladrin, an elf subrace which previously appeared in the Dungeon Master’s Guide, as well as the two Gith variants, the Githyanki and the Githzerai. Read More

5 Wildly Speculative Star Wars: Legion Predictions

(All images taken from the Fantasy Flight Games’ announcement article for Star Wars: Legion)

We’ve had plenty of time to digest the flurry of announcements from Gen Con, and boy was there a lot of awesome stuff coming out of there! While I didn’t have the pleasure of attending in person, you can bet that we were watching at home for any and all announcements of new games and expansions. And one game in particular really caught my eye: Fantasy Flight’s new unpainted miniatures game, Star Wars: Legion.

The tabletop community has been abuzz since the announcement, with plenty of speculation and pre-formed opinions about elements we don’t even know about yet. That said, the things we do know are promising and I am planning on picking up the game upon release to help expand Fantasy Flight’s monopoly on the Star Wars franchise. Read More
