    "They're not ROCKS, Flounder, they're MINERALS!"

    This is it, friends. We've finally hit peak Disney Princess. Anyway, who's your favorite? Normally I'm into Sedimentary Beauty, but I really like the design of Stone White, here. Thanks, Kevin Bolk!

  3. 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.

  5. 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)

  6. 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.

  7. 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!

  8. 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?

    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.
