A lot of times, as DMs, we like to use different types of media to assist us in our games. I know I use all sorts of media – toolkits, dice rollers, monster trackers, soudboards, and more – when I play my games to help make the experience even more immersive for my players. Wizards of the Coast launched a brand new app not too long ago they called Dragon+, which offers all sorts of knowledge to help players dig deeper into the new world of Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition, and the app has become immensely successful.
With Dragon+ players can feast upon vast amounts of knowledge straight from the D&D world. Essentially the app houses a newsstand-like feature where issues of Dragon+ are downloaded and saved. In each issue players can look forward to finding letters from D&d writers, creators, developers, and much more. You can also read up on the rich lore from the Forgotten Realms and Elemental Evil storylines as to be caught up with what’s happening in the game world.
What I like about Dragon+ is that it’s something that makes being a fan/player of D&D much more intimate. You get in-depth articles from celebrated names in the D&D world, as well as up-to-date news articles and videos showcasing just what’s happening with the game. It’s a free app, and one couldn’t ask for more in something that delivers quality content for the tabletop RPG.
The next issue of Dragon+ will drop in June, and readers have a lot to look forward to. The issue will focus on the legacy Dungeons & Dragons has had in video games and will include new details from n-Space on the world and heroes in the upcoming CRPG Sword Coast Legends. Also, Ed Greenwood, the creator of the Forgotten Realms setting, will provide a preview of his new book Spellstorm, and readers can learn about updates on the D&D Adventurer’s League. If you haven’t yet had the chance, check out Dragon+ in the App Store and Google Play to get your appetite fed for all things D&D!
