Big-Ass Tiamat Mini By Another Name

Early birthday present from Melissa, delivered at the beginning of the month. We actually finished painting it a week ago, but there were gaps that we sealed with some liquid green stuff which required more painting to conceal: it just took us awhile to find the time to drive all the way over to the next town so we could visit our not-so-local game store.

The box says it's Ma'al Drakar (by Reaper in case you didn't know or wanted to pick it up yourself) but we all know it's supposed to be Tiamat as depicted by Dungeons & Dragons (though I guess the horns are different). But since we only really play Dungeons & Delvers nowadays we didn't go with the usual Tiamat color scheme.

While doing a bit of research on the mythological Tiamat, I found out that she gave birth to a bunch of Mesopotamian monsters (including the original dragons), before being killed. Her corpse was then used to form the heavens and earth.

Good to know, because one of the settings we're working on is heavily influenced by Mesopotamian elements, but it also gave me an idea for an adventure in which a Tiamat cult tries to cobble a smaller, less powerful, but still fearsome body for her out of various flesh chunks they find scattered about the world.

You can now get a physical copy of Dungeons & Delvers: Black Book in whatever format you want! We've also released the first big supplement for it, Appendix D, so pick that up if you want more of everything.

Also, as part of DriveThruRPG's May D&D Sale, both Dungeons & Delvers: Black Book and Appendix D have been marked down until the end of May!

After months of doing other things, we turned our attention to and released The Warden. It's based on the 4th Edition Dungeons & Dragons class of the same name, but judging by the responses we did an excellent job converting it over.

Dwarven Vault is our sixth 10+ Treasures volume. If you're interested in thirty dwarven magic items (including an eye that lets you shoot lasers) and nearly a dozen new bits of dungeon gear, check it out!

Just released our second adventure for A Sundered World, The Golden Spiral. If a snail-themed dungeon crawl is your oddly-specific thing, check it out!

By fan demand, we've mashed all of our 10+ Treasure volumes into one big magic item book, making it cheaper and more convenient to buy in print (which you can now do).
