Enter to win some of Dungeons & Dragons’ greatest hits

Dungeons & Dragons has been around since 1974, during which time the tabletop RPG’s makers have released multiple editions of the game, as well as dozens of modules. That’s impressive and all, but it does make picking a starting point rather difficult, whether it’s your first time playing or it’s been a decade since you last rolled for initiative. Wizards Of The Coast has taken a little of...

Previously on Force Grey, Chris Hardwick and Brian Posehn joined the search for giants as orchestrated (and dramatized) by Matt Mercer, the man of a thousand voices. Season two of the D&D streaming series heads for the jungles of Chult—which are full of the kind of monsters that give other monsters nightmares—in a preview of the upcoming Tomb Of Annihilation adventure. The search for the Soul...

VR Dungeons & Dragons removes last lingering threat of human interaction

Dungeons & Dragons, long the game of choice for nerdy social introverts, has always been hampered by one incontrovertible weakness: This game designed to foster social interactions among people has required you to actually be in the physical presence of other people. Sure, you can play online, but there’s just no substitute for the feeling of sitting around a table, staring intently at small...

“Dungeons & Donalds” makes Trump slightly more palatable as a boastful DM

It seems harder and harder for people to wrap their collective heads around the fact that Donald Trump is going to be a presidential nominee for the GOP. Yes, the award-winning co-star of Ghosts Can’t Do It is on the path to the White House. It’s a strange time for citizens of every country when this is a legitimate possibility, so why not make it even stranger by throwing in a dash of...

Stranger Things has become a pop culture phenomenon this summer, with many viewers wrapped up in the tale of the weird goings on at Hawkins, Indiana in 1983. People have taken to consuming all the various references made in the show; from the fonts of the main titles, to the various films it touches on, even extending to the music that the Duffer brothers used in their Netflix show. And as...

Giant, happy tree-man Joe Manganiello might technically have been on last night’s Late Show to talk about his upcoming quest to save the floundering Justice League franchise (sorry about that pun, Aquaman) as kickass, one-eyed assassin Deathstroke, but that all went out the studio window once Stephen Colbert whipped out the dice-bag. Actually, their interview never actually got on the track...

Earlier this week, Wizards Of The Coast published its latest Dungeons & Dragons sourcebook, the monster-filled Mordenkainen’s Tome Of Foes. As is standard with a new D&D manual of monsters, it’s full of all sorts of new creatures, ranging from hideously dangerous to relatively benign. One of its most unsettling new additions to the tabletop institution’s vile lore, though, has an especially...
