We talk about toys a lot here on The Allspark and while a large bulk of what we post and discuss is Transformers related, there are so many interesting things that have had impact on us as collectors and fans.

I finally had a chance to sit down and give Storm King’s Thunder (which you can pick up yourself here on Amazon) a read. As with previous Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition adventure releases, Storm King’s Thunder can be played as a stand alone campaign that takes characters from level 1 to level 10 and emphasizes story and game play over […]

People have been disappointed with the Ranger class since long before 5th Edition Dungeons and Dragons. And even among 5E players the class, according to Wizards of the Coast, is still among the most reviled. Developers have listened to player feedback and have now released and updated version of the class. You can view their press release below and take […]

As a life long gamer I’m continually blown away how year after year the “stigma” of table top role playing games is not only being subverted, but outright reversed in our pop culture driven society. Everyone seems to want to get in on the action and now just watching other people play via various webcasts on places like Twitch and […]

Spice up your Dungeons and Dragons Adventures with the Sword Coast Adventurer’s Guide

Allspark News

The Allspark News Robot has been tasked with the duty of assuming ownership of all news posts submitted between 2006 and 2013 from our original website database.

The Forgotten Realms, and in particular, the Sword coast was the default setting for me and a lot of other people no matter which rules set you use. For me, it goes all the way back to the 2nd Edition days. Waterdeep, Neverwinter, and Baldur’s Gate — these are more than just entries on a map — they are the […]

I’ve been playing Dungeons and Dragons for over 20 years and even so I didn’t start out with the earliest version made. My first experience with the game was with the AD&D 2nd Edition Rules. Sure, I’ve played many, many different games since then — I’ve even co-designed and published my own — but there’s just something about D&D that […]
