TableTop RPG Recap: February 2021

February has been an interesting month filled with shock, new content and two really great book announcements. Let us take a look at the events that shaped and will shape our TTRPG adventures together in the future.

Early February

Most of the D&D enthusiast were greeted by shocking news. Adam Bradford, Lauren Urban, and Todd Kenrick leave D&D Beyond.

Almost immediately, Reddit & Twitter was rift with speculation. That left most of us wondering what will happen to D&D Beyond content. But more importantly, it left all of us curious about what caused the exodus and what was so exciting that they had to leave.

To date, we have yet to receive any news on what their next project(s) are about.

11th of February

While most of us in this region sleeps, The One Ring launched. It took them exactly 4 minutes to hit their funding goal of S$15,790. Not even enough time for your drool to hit your pillow.

This fully licensed RPG 2nd edition book, set in the world of The Lord of the Rings is designed by the extremely classy and distinguished Francesco Nepitello.

This Kickstarter is already sitting at 1.8 million and counting. With 4 days left, you better hurry and pledge.

Let us know if you are getting the Limited Edition?!?!

18th of February

Matt Colville announced that Arcadia Issue no. 2 is out! This magazine has blown everyone away with both its usability and sheer awesomeness. You should really check it out. It's only $7 USD.

23rd of February

Wizards of the Coast teased a new hardcover book. The day after, Van Richten's Guide to Ravenloft was officially announced. Stated to be released in May 2021, this Settings book will bring more fodder for Dungeon Masters.

Already this sourcebook features more than 30 regions - known as the Domains of Dread, New Subclasses, core mechanics and detailed Lore just to name a few. We are most excited about the 40 pages of monsters, rules for reanimation, Dark Gifts and rules/tables to create your own Domain.

Will you be getting this book?
