Dungeons & Dragons Gets the Pop! Treatment

Go on a fantasy adventure with the beloved tabletop role-playing game that brought to life elves, dwarves, tieflings, and DRAGONS. Pop! Asmodeus is the Lord of the Nine Hells and should be regarded with suspicion as he’s likely to try to bargain for your soul. Pop! Mind Flayer is not a creature you’d want to meet alone in the Underdark. And Pop! Minsc and Boo might seem like unlikely companions as a human ranger and miniature giant space hamster, but they will have your back in any fight against evildoers – you know, like those other two.

Pop! Games: Dungeons & Dragons is out soon from Funko.

In addition to the artificer class—which fuses technology and magic—players will also be able to customize their characters with four new races and twelve magical dragonmark tattoos. A new game element called group patrons also provides parties with shared background features, helping to define adventurers’ roles in the post-war world.

Dungeon Masters can also expect to find a new cache of tools in Eberron: Rising from the Last War, including an overview of the continent of Khorvaire, a gazetteer of the towering city of Sharn, maps of lightning-powered trains and industrial workshops, plus tons of adventure hooks and details on designing adventures set after the Last War.

Coinciding with the release of Eberron: Rising of the Last War on November 19, the D&D Adventurers League will release a new season of stories called The Oracle of War.

DnD 5E Gets Augmented Reality Magic Item Cards

Moglan’s Many Magical Items is a deck of Magic Item reference cards that can be used in Dungeons and Dragons 5E. There are tons of brand new magic items to tempt your players with, as well as classic items we know and love like the Bag of Devouring. The deck features 60 magic item reference cards that can be used in Augmented Reality on a smarthphone!

Currently running on Kickstarter, the team is looking to raise $26,000 in a campaign that ends December 4.

The Core Deck features 40 cards, containing 30 brand new magic items and 10 classic fifth edition items. There’s also two 10 card themed decks, Legendary Artifacts and Cursed Objects.

Once funded, they’ll launch a free smartphone app which will allow you to scan any one of the illustrated item cards and it will pop up in 3D Augmented Reality where you can move around the item and see why it is so Magical! In addition it saves all the cards stats into your phone’s “Inventory” so your players can reference their items at any time.

Dungeon Mayhem is a new action-packed Dungeons & Dragons card game

Dungeon Mayhem is a new action-packed Dungeons & Dragons card game, where you win by being the last adventurer standing! Play as one of four brave, quirky characters—Barbarian, Paladin, Rogue, or Wizard—battling it out in a dungeon full of treasure.

For ages 8+, the game is an easy-to-learn card game pitting the wits and brawn of a party of adventurers against each other. 2 to 4 players choose one of four decks modeled after characters in Dungeons & Dragons and sling spells, daggers and, well, MAYHEM at each other until there’s only one left to claim the treasure.

Everything you need to play Dungeon Mayhem comes in a small package, but it certainly packs a big punch. Designed by Jordan Comar and Roscoe Wetlaufer to bring players into the D&D multiverse, Dungeon Mayhem can be a quick palette cleanser in between marathon gaming sessions or a make for a full night of gaming with several escalating rematches. Novice players can learn how to play in under five minutes while a game of Dungeon Mayhem is over in less time than it takes to skin a displacer beast – under 15 minutes.

Dungeon Mayhem is available now and retails for $15. The illustrations created by Kyle Ferrin in the four decks of cards represent Sutha the Skullcrusher (barbarian), Azzan the Mystic (wizard), Lia the Radiant (paladin), and Oriax the Clever (rogue). Pick one of these characters and play their mighty power cards such as Azzan’s Vampiric Touch to swap hit points with an opponent or Sutha’s Whirling Axes to heal yourself while dealing crushing damage to the rest of the party.

Keep your friends close! Not only so they can help take out the paladin but because it makes pickpocketing SO much easier. That’s what Dungeon Mayhem is all about!
