Dungeons & Dragons is a Piece of Cake

Dungeons & Dragons is a piece of cake so long as the Dragon you’re slaying is made out of cake then an ordinary kitchen knife will do the job!

But, seriously, when Mike’s Amazing Cakes created this Birthday Cake of a Red Dragon clutching a D20 they created a work of art. And that’s a battle map it’s sitting on, by Jove! Y’know I think if someone brought this to one of our gaming sessions we’d have to do a special dungeon-run versus an Ancient Red. There you go guys, if you’re getting fed up* with the current campaign and fancy a big challenge to gain heaps of XP and go up that next level – you know what to do!
Red Dragon CakeYou can find more pictures of this beautiful monstrosity on FLICKR including it’s death and devourment. But this is not the only D&D themed cake made for, and in some cases by, rabid fans. Oh dear me, no. You might even say the best is yet to come!

Fan Art for Dungeon Legacy

FAN ART SNEAK ATTACK! This is a drawing of Karlaia, a Tiefling Wizard, from the webcomic Dungeon Legacy by George Ward (aka DungeonWarden), and like Epic Fail it is also based on Dungeons & Dragons, but the more modern 4th Edition variety.

‘Saving the world one Dungeon at a time’ since 2008, Dungeon Legacy boasts 7 Chapters and is fast approaching 200 pages! It’s drawn in a niave, somewhat medieval style that not everybody will like but is very clear from a storytelling perspective and fits the genre.

If you enjoy flicking through the Monster Manual to see what weird and wonderful creatures it contains you will not be disappointed; the heroes encounter many monsters including Giants, Vampires, Drow, Displacer Beasts, Lizard Men, and many more. The story concentrates on the fantasy races and exploring their worlds –  there are six main characters and not a human amongst ’em!
