Grab the Dice Bag! It’s Time to Play Magic!

Dice rolling has come to standard with the first D&D crossover to the actual Magic card game; Adventures in the Forgotten Realms. We’ve already seen cards in all colorsContinue reading “Grab the Dice Bag! It’s Time to Play Magic!”

Now first of all, this is a speculation article not a spoiler. I have no new info about the upcoming MTG set, Adventures in the Forgotten Realms. Unfortunately.

The Summer or Drizzt is upon us: What do we have in store?

Welcome to the summer of Drizzt. With the release of the animated short, Sleep Sound, written by the man who wrote both the old and new adventures of Drizzt, R. A.

Drizzt Do’Urden is the mostContinue reading “The Summer or Drizzt is upon us: What do we have in store?”

Are you ready to venture into the dungeon?

Okay, So let’s take a quick minute to talk about the POSSIBLE, yes I said possible, new mechanic in the next main set of Magic: the Gathering.

A Pyre Elemental can be summoned only during a time of great mourning.  Celebrations like the Feast of the Moon are perfect times while the good people of the hosting city accept the grieving from many different kingdoms.  It is traditionally part of the Feast where the dead are remembered and celebrated.  But within thisContinue reading “Dread Elementals: The Pyre”
