Where are the Wrath of Ashardalon bonus adventures? 0

I’ve owned Wrath of Ashardalon for a couple of months now and like the game – it’s fun, plays fast, and offers enough replayability that playing the same scenario twice isn’t boring. Nevertheless, I’m annoyed that on page 2 of the Adventure book, the writers say, and I quote: And check out www.DungeonsandDragons.com, where you can find bonus adventures for use with this …

Wow, D&D is now truly a CCG 0

*Gag* I predicted this would happen when WotC announced that the Gamma World boosters would involve a collectible element. This one is the ultimate in stupidity though: I especially love the fact that these are clearly being positioned to be released in waves of card series. Talk about ruining a RPG by monetizing every aspect of it.

Nice – the new web-based Character Builder crashes reliably 0

I only have 4 days left on my DDI account, but I figured I’d still take a look at the new DDI Character Builder to see what the new character sheets look like.

Well, here’s it straight from the …

R.I.P. DM Rewards program 0

It appears that the DM rewards program is also being largely eliminated. There is a lot of uproar about the fact that the latest D&D reward is a single card for the Ravenloft board game, which turns out just to be the promo card that was given out at GenCon. I’m not sure who thought a card for the Ravenloft board game was an appropriate…

Is WotC ever going to update the DDi Adventure Tools? 0

It’s now been over a year and the DDi Adventure Tools continues to be going nowhere. The Monster Builder is still a beta version and, as far as I can tell, has seen no added features in a long, long time. As it stands now, it’s not even particularly useful it’s a pain-in-the-ass just to export monsters from…
