  8. Review: Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition Is the Most Newcomer-Friendly Version Yet

    "I'm attacking the darkness!"

    Dungeons and Dragons is one of those ur-pillars of geekdom, like classic Doctor Who or original flavor Star Trek, which everyone associates with being a geek. Unfortunately, like classic Who and its incredible backlog of seasons, D&D's steep learning curve can be discouraging for new players. The complexity of previous D&D editions can make starting out prohibitively overwhelming. But not anymore.

  10. Things We Saw Today: The Illustration For “Human” In D&D Is Awesome

    You mean humans can be not generically stubbly white males? GASP

    The rules for the 5th edition of Dungeons & Dragons seem to be getting everything right. First, they're inclusive of all different kinds of gender identity. Now, they're even illustrating "humans" as not generic white male game characters. Thanks, D&D. You rule. (via Twitter)

  11. Watch A Mini-Documentary About A Group Of Girls Playing Dungeons & Dragons For The First Time

    Oh, I'm sorry. I meant Dungeonettes and Dragonettes.

    When filmmaker Meredith Jacobson overheard her boyfriend tell a group of 9-11 year old boys that young girls aren't interested in playing D&D, the producer wanted to prove that the joy of role-playing games knows no gender—and thus the idea for DnDnG was born.

  12. Watch The First 8 Minutes of Dark Dungeons, A D&D Film Based On A Chick Tract

    ARE YOU READY TO RPG?!

    Dark Dungeons, AKA the movie based on the 1984 evangelical comic that claims tabletop roleplaying games are a direct link to Satanism and witchcraft, is finally premiering today to a sold-out GenCon crowd. They've decided to put the beginning of the film on Youtube for all to see— and yes, it's playing the pulpy ridiculousness as completely, hilariously straight as we hoped they would. Just like Reefer Madness (the musical, not the original) but for RPG games!

  13. Ice T, Felicia Day, Weird Al, and Other Celebs Record Dungeons and Dragons Short Story Collection for Audible

    Don't hate the playa, hate the campaign.

    If you're not a regular listener of Ice T's Final Level podcast (in which case you should rectify this problem immediately), then you may have missed the news a few months ago that the rapper-turned-SVU-detective recently recorded the narration for a short story based on the world of Dungeons and Dragons. Now we finally get to hear the fruits of his labor — and geez, would you look at who else is in this cast?

  15. The Mary Sue Exclusive Interview: Mike Mearls and Jeremy Crawford on Acknowledging Sexuality and Gender Diversity in D&D

    Dungeons and Literally a Five-Headed Dragon

    Mike Mearls and Jeremy Crawford, lead designers of the latest edition of Dungeons & Dragons, out this summer, talk about the mechanics of inclusive gaming, Gen Con diversity panels, realistic artwork, and the decision to "look at the wonderfully diverse group of people who play the game and say, 'There’s a place for each of you at the game table'" with the system's new suggestions for roleplaying gender and sexuality.

  17. The Basic Rules of Dungeons and Dragons Next Have Some Cool Things To Say About Gender Identity

    Please do not misgender the Eye of the Beholder.

    Yesterday, Wizards of the Coast released a set of free-to-download "basic rules" for the upcoming fifth edition of Dungeons and Dragons, with the idea of putting this new version of D&D into "as many hands as possible." This in itself is pretty rad, but the actual text of the rules are surprisingly inclusive to non-binary players and characters in a way that hasn't shown up in an official guide before.

    Fun fact: did you know that Cthulhu and the Necronomicon are both totally real things?

    In case you weren't already pumped for Dark Dungeons, the upcoming film adaptation of that Jack Chick tract about the Satanic dangers of tabletop role playing games, then the full trailer is here to ramp up the excitement. It's incredibly realistic, too. What, your last campaign wasn't full of frat guys shouting "LET'S GET READY TO RPG"?

  20. Attention All Roleplayers, Fanfic Authors, and Simmers: Drop What You’re Doing And Play Storium

    Review

    I’m no stranger to group storytelling. In high school, I wrote fanfic with a friend, swapping a spiral-bound notebook back and forth. During that same time I was working at a renaissance faire and my inbox overflowed with email threads of in-character letters. When I was in college, I was an active participant in a Star Trek sim. My World of Warcraft guild forums had a section dedicated to roleplaying. And in recent years, after I moved countries, my previously-local friends and I went through a short period of playing Parsely and Dungeons & Dragons via Google Hangouts. So believe me when I say — if you like to roleplay, if you like collaborative storytelling, if you have gaming friends you can’t meet in person, Storium is what you’ve been looking for.
