WizKids has announced the release of the new D&D Icons of the Realms: Waterdeep: Dungeon of the Mad Mage .. what a mouthful to say, but a lot of minis included in the set!

Releasing in March 2019.

In the city of Waterdeep rests a tavern called the Yawning Portal, named after the gaping pit in its common room. At the bottom of this crumbling shaft is a labyrinthine dungeon known as Undermountain, domain of the mad wizard Halaster Blackcloak who has seeded his lair with monsters, traps, and mysteries. This set of collectible figures perfectly represents many of the monsters and villains found throughout the 23 levels of Undermountain detailed in Waterdeep: Dungeon of the Mad Mage.

Waterdeep: Dungeon of the Mad Mage includes exciting new player characters & monsters like the Elf Cleric of the Grave and the terrifying Death Tyrant. Undermountain’s most infamous villains make an appearance, including the Mad Mage, Halaster himself and his ambitious apprentices. This set also includes several classic creatures such as the benevolent Flumph and the 3-eyed terror known as the dreaded Froghemoth!

Collect all 44 figures from Waterdeep: Dungeon of the Mad Mage, the newest set of randomly sorted monsters and heroes in our exciting line of D&D miniatures, Icons of the Realms.

Journey To Ragnarok 5e Norse Mythology

April 15th, 2017

Journey To Ragnarok, a brand new project for 5th Edition (5e) about Norse Mythology is now live on kickstarter and over achieveing day by day.

The idea behind Journey To Ragnarok was to merge our biggest passions: the 5th Edition of the most famous role playing game of all time and, of course, Norse Mythology.

Every single event, NPC or encounter that will cross Adventurers’ path is the result of more than 15 years of love and research, readings and travels.

Our intent is to let the Adventurers discover and explore the true origins of Norse Mythology, that has deeply influenced Fantasy literature, games,comics and movies.

The author is Michele Paroli, an architect and a graphic designer but first of all a role-playing gamer and Dungeon Master. Then there’s Antonio dell’Aquila, in charge of marketing and comunication activities, a product manager in the everyday life, but also a roleplaying gamer and dungeon master since 1999.

The core team counts many veteran DMs and adventures designers and we’re proud to tell that we were part of the organization and DMs of the first ever D&D Adventurers League Epics Event in Italy @Lucca Comics&Games 2016 and @Play Modena 2017.

Assault of the Giants D&D Board Game coming in February

January 6th, 2017

Assault of the Giants, the next Dungeons & Dragons-derived board game for 3 to 6 players from WizKids, is scheduled to hit retail in February.

Command giants and assault settlements to score points and secure important resources, including food, treasure, ore, and runes.

Each player issues commands to his or her giants in the form of command cards (recruit, move, attack, pillage, and so on). This allows players to recruit new giants, send them out to attack settlements and other giants, and also to pursue special agendas based upon their race. For example, the Storm Giants seek to restore their lost monarch, King Hekaton. The Cloud Giants seek an ancient dragon treasure trove, and the Hill Giants seek an abundance of food with which to feed their massive monarch, Chief Guh.

In Assault of the Giants players send their giants out to wage war on each other and the small folk, but the game’s real strategy lies in each player’s ability to pursue their giant race’s unique agenda, not only through combat but also through clever cardplay.

Raiders of Pertalo RPG Adventure for 5E available

May 29th, 2016

Skirmisher Publishing has released Raiders of Pertalo, an RPG adventure for 5th Edition D&D available now on DriveThruRPG.

During the spring equinox, on the Ides of the Falcon, the peaceful village on Lake Pertalo readies itself for the Fertility Feast of Agnor in celebration of a long winter coming to an end. All preparation comes to a sudden halt, however, when the community is overrun by an enemy that disappears as quickly as it arrived. Many are killed or wounded, but it soon becomes clear that this was not the goal of the raiders … All of the village’s children are now gone, apparently carried off in the chaos of the attack. As the characters begin to search for the missing children, they will discover a plot far more sinister than any of them had imagined … and possibly be destroyed by it.

Players will face a wide variety of perils throughout the course of this adventure, ranging from Goblin depravity to mystical puzzles and mysteries unknown, as they take their first steps toward learning the fate of the missing children. May the gods be with them in their quest!

This module includes six pre-generated starting characters that players can use if desired to jump right into the adventure.
