Dungeons & Dragons & Dogs

Luke Plunkett Jul 25, 2018. 6 comments

Dungeons and Doggies is a miniature release from Animal Adventures that lets anyone who plays D&D—and wants to go on quests with very good boys—have some cute dogs join their party.

The set includes 13 adventuring dog miniatures, as well as a “bespoke set of fifth edition compatible rules for using your Animal Adventure miniatures and playing as dogs in ANY campaign setting.”

Each dog comes on either a 20mm or 25mm base (so they’re the same scale as other miniatures), and while players are free to come up with their own characters, “each miniature comes with its own pre-generated character, complete with character sheet and short story! Whether you fancy being Hartley, a gruff and stoic fighter or Freya, a noble guardian druid, there’s a dog for every player.”

Dungeons & Doggies is currently up on Kickstarter, where it’s 13x over its original asking price.

Earlier this year, Fantasy Flight’s April Fool’s joke was to announce an expansion to Arkham Horror’s card game called The Dogwich Legacy, in which the human heroes were replaced by dogs and the Lovecraftian horrors by cats. The joke came and went, but people loved it so much that it’s now an actual game.Barkham Horror: The Meddling of Meowlathotep...

After somehow avoiding it for over two years, I finally got the chance this week to sit down with the second edition of Fantasy Flight’s Mansions of Madness, easily my favorite of their line of Lovecraftian games. The big difference between this version and the first is that it gets rid of the role of the “Keeper” (basically a...

Everybody calls Rob Kuntz last, he says. Those who want to know about the history of Dungeons & Dragons start with co-creator Gary Gygax’s kids, one of Gygax’s biographers, or D&D publisher Wizards of the Coast. As they’re wrapping things up, they might get around to dialing up Kuntz, a 63-year-old game designer. And once they call him, he tells...

It Is Surprisingly Hard To Create An Incompetent Ass-Clown In Dungeons & Dragons It Is Surprisingly Hard To Create An Incompetent Ass-Clown In Dungeons & Dragons

Kotaku Game DiaryDaily thoughts from a Kotaku staffer about a game we're playing.  The great escapist fantasy of Dungeons & Dragons is that you are not a salaryperson shoveling handfuls of gummy bears into your mouth and rolling 20-sided die. Rather, you are a singularly important hero with a singular capacity to disarm some impending plot bomb. It’s a time-tried...
