Kickstarter/Indiegogo Spotlight: The Deck of Many Dungeons

Deck of Many Dungeons - Geek-o-Rama - Tabletop Gaming

Hi all! Katrina here with this week’s Kickstarter spotlight. This week, I wanted to bring you something that I personally found really cool and I found it with the Deck of Many Dungeons. I was first drawn to the art because it looked suspiciously like it was done by our good friend Travis Hanson.  Upon checking out the FAQ, I discovered that I was right! That got me in the door, but what kept me was the purpose of these really cool cards:

“Well it’s a deck of 54 playing cards, 53 actual usable cards which will have map elements printed on the back of them. A Game Master can use these cards to either shuffle up a random dungeon or to lay out their own custom dungeon for their friends!

The Deck of Many has 12 unique cards and multiples of each to literally allow a person to create well ...

For me, I enjoy things more when I learn them from comics.  Like there is an older manga series called Project X – Challengers and they tell stories like how 7-11 Stores got started in Japan or the invention of Cup Noodle brand of ramen.

So learning about the details of the sport of Fencing is very fascinating...

Dungeons and Dragons: Evil at Baldur’s Gate #1A

Written by: Jim Zub

Artwork by: Dean Kotz

Cover by: Max Dunbar

Publisher: IDW Publishing

Synopsis: The former heroes of Baldur’s Gate have returned from their adventures in Ravenloft and the frozen northern reaches of the Realms. As each hero must face their own trials, the Ranger Minsc attempts to reclaim his place as a hero even though the people have a new hero.

Review: While I expected fantasy, adventure, action, and an interesting story, I did not expect to laugh as much as I did. This is well written, funny, and left me ready to buy the next edition. The artwork is classic DnD with bold details and a busy (in a good way) background. There is nothing flat about any of it and I love that just as much as the storyline.
Minsc and his sidekick hamster are lovable and funny...
