May has got to be the biggest month thus far in the Dungeons and Dragons and Tabletop roleplaying sphere. Here's a recap of the latest updates and what's going on in the TTRPG and D&D world!
1st of May
Jonathan Goldstein & John Francis Daley starts filming 𝘋&𝘋 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘮𝘰𝘷𝘪𝘦.
Slated to be released on the silver screen in 2023. Helmed by Chris Pine as the lead, we all can only hope he kills Hugh Grant dead with magic missiles and Tasha's hideous laughter combination.
This @wbpictures Warner Brothers production will be as glorious as The Avengers and as loved as Star Wars... we hope.....
2nd of May
Jeff Goldblum to become an Elven Sorcerer on D&D Podcast.
Why isn't Jeff Goldblum also in the D&D movie?!
He'll be playing an Elven Sorcerer in the Dark Dice Podcast. This podcast has not only the epic cinematic scope and original score for its games - but now it has a Jeff Goldblum.
I think we all can agree that Dark Dice Podcast has won D&D. Oh, and they are boasting of a live orchestra behind the show as well!?
This is highly anticipated!

Wizkids announced D&D GHOSTS OF SALTMARSH' BOARD GAME EXPANSION
Any of you play the D&D board games diligently as you do Gloomhaven? After the success of Dungeon of the Mad Mage set (it had some kickass minis), @wizkids goes ahead and builds upon it with the next expansion. But it will only have 8 unpainted miniatures.
Ghost of Saltmarsh set will be released sometime in August.
18th of May
Van Richten's Guide to Ravenloft is released!
We all love Curse of Strahd (unless you're currently playing it, best of luck out there in Barovia), and now the Master Wizards at D&D have unleashed upon poor players more tools for Dungeon Masters to scare the HP out of them.
This settings compendium gives all of us more lore, inspiration and evil villains to explore and to create more adventures from.
Full review from TableMinis will be out soon - we haven't got our own copy yet... (we blame Strahd!)
21st of May
“Sleep Sound” | The Legend of Drizzt
I woke up to the Youtube of "The legend of Drizzt" finagling itself onto my computer monitor.
The vicious sound of Benni Cumberbatch voice narrating the drama from R.A Salvatore was particularly strange and yet delightful.
All this hard work and money to bring the origins of Drizzt Do'Urden to life was such a treat to all of us fans!
