My thoughts on ‘Tales From The Yawning Portal’

I received my advance copy of @dndwizards​’s new book Tales from the Yawning Portal not quite a week ago. If you haven’t heard of this book here’s the gist of it:

TftYP is a collection of seven ‘classic’ dungeon adventures from D&D editions past, all updated with fifth edition rules. In this book you get…

  • Against the Giants (AD&D)
  • Dead in Thay (D&D Next)
  • Forge of Fury (D&D 3e)
  • Hidden Shrine of Tamoachan (AD&D)
  • The Sunless Citadel (D&D 3e)
  • Tomb of Horrors (AD&D)
  • White Plume Mountain (AD&D)

All of the maps and layout have been updated to make them easier on the eyes, while their traps, monsters, structure, and challenges remains largely unchanged. TftYP is a ‘best of’ book, rather than a remake or reboot of these adventures.

If you’re a millennial who got into D&D through things like Acquisitions Inc, The Adventure Zone, or Critical Role, my take on this book is gonna be of interest to you…because this book might be specifically FOR YOU.

I’m not usually a big werewolf fan, but I wanted to try and change my own mind via some fun design practice. I really like how this cutie turned out!

I think that this brand of lycanthropy is a pretty rough ride, slowly turning the victim over the course of a whole month. With a few days of full human and a few days of full wolfmonster, most of the time is spent in an in-between state like this. Medication and exceptional self control can help manage symptoms, but it ain’t easy.

I already did boy versions of some of these. Overall I don’t find this challenge that interesting, especially when you get to vague things like “true monster” or “favorite monster boy” or “A Truly Gruesome boy”. I suppose I could prolly make my own challenge that replaces those prompts with more specific monsters like the rest of the challenge.
