With Dungeon & Dragons getting more popular now days thanks to shows like CRITCAL ROLE and STRANGER THINGS, as well as comic books like A Darkened Wish from IDW Publishing and Vox Machina from Dark Horse, it makes sense that a new book to help Dungeon Masters create worlds would be a hit.
While I’m not a player of the game, I did ask Jeffrey Venture of the Dungeon Mastered podcast about the rise in popularity of Dungeons and Dragons and he agrees with my assessment “I would absolutely credit a lot of the popularity that the community around the game is enjoying to Critical Role, but the examples you put there, as well as Stranger Things in a HUGE way, are bringing people to the game in droves.” He went on to say “There’s also just a ton of creators out there that are getting very excited and being very vocal about their love for the game, including the creators of ADVENTURE TIME and RICK AND MORTY (off the top of my head).”
And a hit it has proven to be with the Kickstarter having almost $120k USD since it launched. With only about a week to go until the campaign ends, the book which lets you create your own worlds for your D&D campaign has already passed their first 2 stretch goals and is quickly approaching the 3rd.
If you’re a Dungeon Master, or even a Dungeon & Dragons player, this is one Kickstarter you should definitely check out! Let us know if you’re a player of the game and you’d find this helpful! Also check out Dungeon Mastered on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

PORTLAND, OR – 1985 Games is a small start-up that consists of a Dungeon & Dragons party who hated drawing trees and buildings.

The Kickstarter campaign will wrap up on August 23, 2019. Dungeon Craft will change the way Dungeon Masters and players create worlds.
Dungeon Craft is a new book filled with cut-out game pieces that let you create an engaging world for your next campaign. Put down your marker, and use the pieces from the book to craft your world in real-time! Dungeon Craft provides rivers, trees, caves, buildings, hordes of monsters, dragons, chests, spiritual weapons, and so much more. Simply cut them from the book and craft your world.
“We want to create more exciting gameplay for any TTRPG. Dungeon Craft allows Dungeon Masters to quickly build a world at their tables for players to interact with.” Says CEO Joshua Thorne, “Dungeon Craft limits the time spent drawing maps and creates an environment where players can role-play and roll dice more, and that’s what these games are all about.”
