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, 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.
