Two lovers who have long been under the same umbrella are finally kissing and getting truly together!
Dungeon & Dragons and Magic the Gathering are finally mingling their intellectual property, In a great article on Magic.Wizard.com HERE. The beautiful “adventure world” of magic “The Plane of Zendikar” where groups of brave and daring adventures delve into dungeons and search for lost wonders of bygone ages lied in the roots of our beloved D&D. Wizard of the Coast are finally officially letting Magic the Gathering (MTG) and Dungeons and Dragons get into bed together and I think it’s going to be awesome!
If you do get a chance to look through The Art of Magic The Gathering: Zendikar you’ve seen the BEAUTIFUL art that MTG has collected from near and far to flesh out the card game, and I for one enjoyed looking at it to get visual references for stuff I use in D&D Journey of the Fifth edition, especially with the new group “The lady Knights of Adventure” (who’s first episode I’ll be posting next week!).
Well Back to the big news! Wizard has published an almost official free pdf of the game world and different things belonging to it! Currently its 38 pages long and comes with the caveat of “The mechanics in this supplement are usable in your D&D campaign but are not fully tempered by playtests and design iterations. For these reasons, Material in this supplement is not legal in D&D Organized Play events”. But hey totally cool to use in your games. I know I so want to run a few One-Shot trilogies ( a One Shot, Three session game: 12-18 hours of gameplay).
The Races included are the Humans (a strong militarized force scattered about), the Kor (a Tall, slener ivory skinned race associated with white mana and magic communicating with hand signs), MerFolk (More aquatic race love! Natural scholars and amphibious explorers), Vampires (I’m super excited about this one actually, I so want to kill a group of players and bring them back as vampires!!!! Though in this context:“The vampires of Zendikar are not undead. Rather, their unique nature comes from an eldritch disease that turns their flesh cold, makes their gray or purple skin feel dead to the touch, and enables them to drain energy from the blood of other living creatures”), GOBLINS! (Ok I love running goblin player groups, since slowly groups evolve into goblin play style =D, and the tree tribes have great abilities!), elves (I love the different ‘Nations’ of elves! Mask of the wild and the Death and poison dealing Mul Daya Nation!)! All of this adds great flavor text and a ton of new options for your D&D games!!!!
Then comes the Beastiary adding local flavor to monster manual classics like Angels, Griffins and more. Wait till your players look at the Felidars!!!! They will fall in love with this as a possible mount! (“Felidars consent to be ridden only by knights they consider virtuous.”) Krakens have been released! These massive lightning tossing Jr Chuthulu’s will be the storm giants of the sea! By the way you’ll really enjoy the Troll Picture in here! You’ll love how at the end they give great advise on how to redress and repurpose other monsters for the use of Lesser Eldrazi.
Definitely check this out and download a copy while it here, since you never know how long till it gets to the D&D DriveThru RPG site!
Thank you Wizard of the Coast for letting these IP’s merge for us fans of both Dungeons & Dragons and Magic the Gathering!

Today I got asked a great question on Twitter from a long time listener of our Scion RPG Ragnarok & Roll, a Scion Hero to Ragnarok story podcast asked me how to help the group keep making more podcasts?

This site helps us pay to keep the lights on and more than one episode up at a time, if you can even just $1 a month is a huge help (We average 30,000+ listens a month, imagine if everyone gave us the cost of a single Starbucks coffee once a month, We could add so much more content and give so much back.

10 and Finally be kind to each other and support makers in your community I’ve heard of too many Makers, Cosplayers and Game designers get their dreams and hopes crushed and at the very least we can choose to be kind and supportive as people to each other and be kind to our fellow humans who have that amazing zeal to create and share!
Here comes Valentine’s day in Gaming!
First things first, I know my Valentine’s day plans are to go see Deadpool! Here’s some Valentine’s Day E-Cards we want to keep alive and flowing through the internet 😉
One thing I love about gaming is RPG and Games love to join in the festivities and spread the love this February.
Love is in the Air
In our Guilds we’ll be smelling the love in the air on World of Warcraft celebrating love and friendship during which
Our fellow players share gifts and candy, and the air is filled with perfume and cologne. This holiday of course is based on the real world customs of Valentine’s Day.
Players can show their appreciation for their friends and faction leaders by collecting Lovely Charm to create Lovely Charm Bracelet, which can be turned in daily for rewards. The Crown Chemical Company has set up throughout the major cities of Azeroth, peddling perfumes, colognes, candy, and other seasonal goodies which can be purchased with Love Token earned through completion of daily quests. But everything isn’t exactly as it seems my friends, and it’s up to players to investigate these suspicious new goblins and their perfumed plague!
For those of us Getting a little time on the first persona shooter Destiny its going to be a bloody Valentine! In Destiny’s new Valentine’s Day event called Crimson Days. Unlike previous events, this one doesn’t have much to offer PVE players other than a few new emotes. Crimson Days is all about PVP.
From now until next Tuesday, February 16, there’s a new 2v2 playlist called “Crimson Doubles” that will let you and a friend team up against other fireteams of two. When your teammate dies in this mode, you’ll get a buff called Heartbroken that boosts your stats and makes you reload more quickly. Bloody adorable, huh?
Did you spot the valentine card you’ll send your Valentine? I know I did…
