Dungeons and Dragons 5e Release Date, prices, and the Free Core Game PDF

Dungeons and Dragons is a game that has its ups and downs in the current market it is in, and with 4th Edition a lot of hardcore players were in a riot. Disliking 4E for many reasons, but that can be covered in a large article all on its own. Because of the complete “botch” that many players… Read More »

Roll for initiative Warner Bros, Hasbro is attacking!

Recently we talked about Dungeons & Dragons the movie being released under Warner Brothers, and we had a rather mixed response from viewers of both good and bad. Well apparently, it may not be so easy.  Hasbro has put on their big boy pants and stepped on the breaks for this project, as they say that THEY own… Read More »

A New Dungeons and Dragons Movie on the horizon

  Inside my room on the left wall I have a huge vinyl poster of the original Dungeons and Dragons movie, though I love the poster thinking of the actual movies commonly pain my soul. Remember when they gave out blue lipstick with the movie? I mean, really? Luckily my parents never wore it around or I may… Read More »

Bunkers And Badasses! DnD New DLC for Borderlands 2!

So I was perusing the net today when I stumbled upon an interesting article that said “Borderladns 2 Meets Dungeons and dragons….” I was immediately intrigued, being a lover of both of these games. The video starts off with them talking about how we may be more confused when the video is over, but I find it humorous… Read More »

Neverwinter: Vie For glory

Neverwinter is a game that holds a dear place in my heart, I have only fond memories of the game and now they are mixing two great memories into one; Neverwinter and MMO’s. Now being the big MMO buff I am, when I found out the new Neverwinter was an MMO I found myself actually a little disappointed,… Read More »

Greg Christopher: My Advice for Wizards of the Coast

My Advice for Wizards of the Coast I think you have accepted that you have made some mistakes. So I am not going to rake you over the coals. I’m not going to make demands of you that are in my self-interest or that seek to bolster some position I have. I am not going to pretend to… Read More »

How do I add more to 4d8+18?

Despite Wizards of the Coast not showing up on my doorstep with a giant novelty check and a offer to move to Renton, I’ve decided to complete what I set out to accomplish. And that was of course to publish two articles so mind numbingly boring that ICANN shuts down the internet. The first was “How do I add 25% to 4d8+…

Old School Podcast – Interview with WotC

I had a great time at Pax East, as I said in my post on the matter . What I have been remiss in doing, since then, is getting the audio content that I captured out to you, our readers and listeners. Well, I am rectifying that immediately. The first bit of audio that I am putting up is my interview with Kieran Clark and Chris Perkins of…

Advanced Dungeons and Facebook

Troll in the Corner presents something a little different this week, a peek into the Facebook pages of a few iconic D&D figures. Ben and I came up with a bunch of these in a conversation last week, and I decided to commit the best ones to a little image editing for your enjoyment.  Click to each embiggen . An…

Threads of Sanity #8

“Your masters are dead!” Sharim yelled with booming voice and Rhadec kicked the carcass of Alabus to the courtyard. “Leave or die!” and the drow didn’t had to command twice. They fled. Alabus was dead, but Jeiram had escaped. The dwarven fortress was once again regained, but there were still many questions to be answered.

How do I add 25% to 4d8+18?

(Warning – There will be math. And numbers. They bore me too. Well, not really but I’m trying to empathize. Skip the numbers if you don’t like them – dwell on the poor humor instead.) In July 2010, Wizards of the Coast released a Dungeons and Dragons (4e) errata update , specifically to the Dungeon Masters Guide, more specifically the monster damage …

Classic Dungeon Trivia 9

As the doors to this magnificent room clanged open, the party barely had time to register their surroundings before Sir Vincent of Diakuw charged forward through the flames. Having recognized the danger immediately, and seizing on an opportunity to finally use his broadsword of Iron Phoenix Slaying, he did do battle with the abomination and stuck down the fell beast in an hour and 49 minutes. …

Threads of Sanity #7

“Come now lads…” Elbor prompted others. Old age and the lack of other hand did not slow him down or at least the old dwarf made efforts that it would not show. He was getting old and he felt it in his bones. There were things to be dealt with, and helping Sharim, Jonas and

Threads of Sanity #6

Our Forgotten Realms campaign continues again, switching back from 4th edition to 3.5. Dungeons and Dragons. This has fastened the pace of gaming considerably (especially the fights) and has given, at least the casters, a lot more room to tinker with. Everybody in our group has been pleased to the change. The eyes of the

Classic Dungeon Trivia 8

When we last met our stalwart adventurers, they were on the long and perilous Journey to the Rock, and the powerful, but grim, barbarian Daddy Grognard led the way. In TWELVE #$%@ing minutes!!! I had barely finished typing and he already guessed right. Oh well, chocolate for Big D. This week, our hearty band has arrived at an unusual chamber……

I Take My Throwing Knife, and Throw It…Knife Style!

I finally got to watch the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons episode of Community. I haven’t seen the show before, but I saw the commercials and had to find this episode at least. I didn’t go into it with much hope, just because most people that “make fun” of D&D don’t really understand it so it just comes off as awkward…

Monthly Poll – Favorite Old School Module

Stolen directly from Grognardia ‘s web site So much for January. That didn’t take long. Sort of a small turn out for last months Monthly Poll so this shouldn’t take long. In 1st place for the favorite “deceptive” creature with 36% of the votes was the Doppleganger 2nd Place goes to the Water Weird (one of my personal favorites) 3rd place is Gas Spore. I have to …
