Because roleplaying is social, creative, fun… and kinda cool!

7 Haunting Horror Stories for Halloween

As the nights get darker and the days get colder (at least for those of us tuning in from the northern hemisphere!), it’s become a tradition at this time of the year for D&D players to embrace the scarier side of fantasy. Now, given that our favourite tales of horror are often rooted in helplessness […]

Keys from the Golden Vault: Reviews of All 13 Heists!

Dust off your crowbar, polish your lock picks and put on your padded slippers, because your expert handler, Hipsters & Dragons, is about to mission debrief you on a series of 13 sensational heists from the D&D multiverse. Yes, a mere 7.5 months after its release (I have a day job you know!) I’ve finally […]

The Incredible Balloon Bamboozle: A High Jinks Aerial Heist!

Earlier this year I bought Keys from the Golden Vault, and I effin loved it… my next Hipsters & Dragons post will be a 10,000 word review of the anthology, complete with rankings, and remixes to make the adventures even better. Naturally, delving into this fun and fast-paced anthology made me want to write my […]

Isle of the Dreaded Accursed (& Other Adventures)

The adventure Isle of the Dreaded Accursed has been on my radar for a while, and I was lucky enough to be sent a review copy recently. Written by JVC Parry, Mr. Tarrasque and WallyDM, with a license to showcase the monsters of the Dreaded Accursed bestiary by Nord Games – all names with which […]

I Ran The Stygian Gambit… And It Rocked!

Heavily obscured by the OGL scandal, and with the distraction of a Hollywood movie hitting the cinemas, DMs with a low passive Perception may have barely noticed the release of WOTC’s latest adventure anthology, Keys from the Golden Vault, sneaking up onto their local game-store’s bookshelves. Which is a shame, because it’s a really buccaneering […]

Journeys Through the Radiant Citadel: Review & Ratings!

My first takeaway from Journeys through the Radiant Citadel is the futility of pre-ordering the latest D&D releases on Amazon. I enjoyed Candlekeep Mysteries and was, if anything, more excited for this anthology, but despite buying the book in June and expecting it on my doorstep in July, after a couple of false starts, it […]

Tome, Sweet Tome! Reviews of All 17 Candlekeep Mysteries

One summer’s day in 2021, feeling restless, I walked down the leafy Passeig de Sant Joan boulevard in Barcelona and popped into the Gigamesh fantasy bookstore. Half on a whim, and half with an adventure idea in the back of my mind, I picked up a copy of the (then) recently published Candlekeep Mysteries and […]

Running The Price of Beauty (Candlekeep Mysteries)

I’m currently about half way through penning an epic post reviewing each of the adventures in the Candlekeep Mysteries anthology (it’s now live!). So far, the adventure that has spoken to me the most is The Price of Beauty, a 5th level adventure written by Mark Hulmes. ***For DMs ONLY. Contains spoilers for The Price […]

Ed Greenwood Is A Legend!

I’m no D&D historian, but I think it’s fair to say that few, possibly none, have contributed more to the game’s lore than Ed Greenwood. The Canadian writer started writing novels set in his nascent Forgotten Realms as early as 1967 (aged 18 at the time), before developing the setting as the homebase for his […]

Merry Deadwinter To You All!

For some time I’ve been deliberating over designing a Name of the Rose-inspired murder mystery adventure for D&D. The imagery of weary travellers arriving at a remote monastery in the dead of winter has a certain romantic appeal, while the sinister atmosphere of a body count increasing in an isolated community feels like something that […]
