“Dungeons and Dragons vs. Rick and Morty” in stores now
There were two big DnD5e releases from Wizards of the Coast on November 19th. One was “Eberron Rising from the Last War,” and the second was “Dungeons and Dragons vs. Rick and Morty,” which is the product we’ll be talking about here.
Dungeons & Dragons vs. Rick and Morty in stores on November 19, 2019
I haven’t watched the Rick and Morty show, nor read the comic, so I’m coming in this blind. I know the series is quite popular, and this set is a starter set similar to the “D&D5e Essentials Kit.”
If, like me, you aren’t familiar with the show, you will still be able to enjoy the quirky adventure that is included with this set. There are 5 pregenerated characters included in the module. Four of them are based on the characters that the Sanchez/Smith family played on the show, plus an additional character, named “Meatface.”
There are two modules included here. One contains the adventure, which is for the DM only, and the other is the rulebook, which the players can load.
Note that Rick has inserted his own comments throughout the story about what he thinks of the D&D rules. A fun addition are the built-in tables for surprise events to happen. The DM rolls and gets a surprise such as:
“Every magic potion the party carries has turned to spoiled milk.”
I’ve included some links to some videos talking about the “Dungeons and Dragons vs. Rick and Morty” adventure, along with a link to the “All Things Fantasy Grounds” show from November 24th where the adventure along with “Eberron Rising from the Last War” were spotlighted. Purchase the module of “Dungeons and Dragons vs. Rick and Morty” from the Fantasy Grounds store.
