Do you like monsters? Of course you do. Whether you’re a fifth edition Dungeons & Dragons Dungeon Master on the lookout for exciting new creatures to challenge adventurers or a player whose character seeks fame, glory, gold and heroic deeds, monsters are one of the most amazing parts of the game.
Fortunately for you, there’s still time to head over to Kickstarter and back Limitless Monsters – the latest campaign from Limitless Adventures. (Campaign ends on Oct. 28). With two other successful Kickstarters to their credit already, this campaign is already funded with content written in advance to ensure delivery of high-quality material on time.
Each week during the Quests & Adventures live chat, Saturday at 2 p.m. eastern, Nerdarchists Dave and Ted and Nate the Nerdarch hang out live with fans from the Nerdarchy YouTube channel. It’s a chance to share announcements and news, answer questions from the live chat and generally just hang out and talk nerdy with the Nerdarchy community.
In the description of each weekly video, Nerdarchist Ted compiles a list and links to all the videos and website content from the week. But he also shares a selection of cool Kickstarter campaigns. As an avid Kickstarter supporter, he’s happy to share his favorite RPG and gaming-related Kickstarters with you, the Nerdarchy community. Enjoy!

How would you like to be able to just build your dungeon room by room as you go? Would you like visual cues to help you design your dungeon while the group is not around? Well now you can with this easy deck of cards. They are double sided with a standard 3 by 3 tile on one side and a more interesting side on the other.
The Dungeon Explore Card Deck is a deck of 48 square tile cards each printed with detailed dungeon artwork. The cards use a 3×3 grid that can be interconnected by passageways and doorways to create an endless variety of combinations. Whether you play Dungeons and Dragons, Pathfinder, or any other fantasy tabletop RPG system, this portable and affordable deck of cards will integrate right into your game.
While GMs are free to imagine up their own ways to use the Dungeon Explore Card Deck, here are a couple suggested ways to try them out.
I try not to share too many Kickstarter projects here, but every once and a while I feel that a project is
worth sharing. Over the years Dungeons and Dragons as well as Pathfinder have released a number of large or should I say gargantuan miniatures. Most of the miniatures I have that get big are Dragons.
Lets face it the game many of us play is called Dungeons and Dragons so why make the other stuff? We as players all want to face down the big bad monsters, save the world, get the treasure and save the girl.
The biggest monster that anyone has put out was the Colossal Red Dragon. It is a wondrous figure and I am happy to say that I do own one. The dragon can actually hold a standard size human in one claw and I typically store one there for fun.
But if you want to deal with something other than dragons what are you options. Not many and there

Hey Nerdarchists and Dice lovers. Sorry for the late article today we had a little snafu with the scheduling so this is me throwing something up there for you.
If you are a gamer like I am I am sure you love dice. I have more dice than I am willing to count in my gaming collection, that means dice that are not part of board game components. I can say without issue that the number is at least in the hundreds. And yet every time I come upon something new I am eager to add it to the collection.
