Wizards of the Coast recently released Waterdeep: Dragon Heist, which asks players to experience a heist, but if you want to play through lots of different heists and capers, you’re sort of out of luck. Here’s To Crime: A Guide to Capers and Heists is all about entertaining those who love crime.

100 Monster Hunts is a simple idea. As a Dungeon Master, you can roll on a giant table and get a random “monster hunt,” or a small designed encounter with a monster. Players then go deal with that monster. It’s clean, it’s simple, and it’s helpful.
Dungeons and Doggies is a miniature release from Animal Adventures that lets anyone who plays D&D—and wants to go on quests with very good boys—have some cute dogs join their party.

Dungeons & Dragons campaigns that are housed in other fictional universes are usually pretty cool. If you want a robust, fiddly ruleset, then D&D is very useful. Reddit user SnicklefritzSkad has built up a Dark Souls story inside of D&D, and it is very, very excellent.
Conor Murphy, lead singer of the post-rock band Foxing, says that Dungeons and Dragons is his favorite thing in the world “because you get to be a voyeur to your friends, who are having this reawakening of their imaginations in front of you.” When I bring up Dungeons and Dragons, though, he gets audibly excited. “I…
Cartoonist and self-described Dungeons & Dragons nerd Luke Howard hand-crafted a convincing argument in favor of pen-and-paper role-playing: custom character sheets for D&D.
Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden is pretty long name for a game with a straightforward pitch: what if XCOM but with animorphs?

Last week I asked on Twitter about your dumbest tabletop roleplaying deaths, and boy, did you all deliver.
