This Friday, at New York Comic Con, Dungeon Master Jim Zub (co-writer of Rick and Morty VS D&D) will run a panel of "foolhardy gaming and comic guests" through an encounter from the upcoming Dungeons & Dragons VS Rick and Morty official RPG adventure.
Yes, there's a Rick and Morty Dungeons & Dragons set due out this November.
The blurb says:
"Play D&D through the lenses of the mad narcissistic genius, Rick Sanchez, from the animated Cartoon Network series, Rick and Morty — the Rick Way!Sure, it's yet another starter set (following on the heels of the Stranger Things one) and it won't be for everyone, but, personally, I'm loving it... and anything that spreads the gospel of gaming to a wider audience is welcome in my book.
This tabletop roleplaying game boxed set blends the world of Dungeons & Dragons with mad narcissistic genius, Rick Sanchez’s power gaming sensibilities, nostalgia, sarcastic metacommentary, and the reasons why people play D&D in the first place.
• Following the hugely popular comic book series Rick and Morty vs. Dungeons & Dragons, this boxed set is co-authored by Jim Zub (co-writer of comic book series) with new art by Troy Little (illustrator of comic book series).
• This complete campaign experience includes the following components: (1) 64-page rulebook annotated by Rick (2) 32-page original adventure for levels 1–3 (3) 4-panel folding Dungeon Master screen featuring new art (4) 5 ready-to-play character sheets (6) 11 dice
• A great companion to the comic book series, and a perfect gift for the Rick and Morty/D&D fan in your life."
And I'm all about supporting Jim Zub as well, given that both he - and Mike Norton, writer of Battlepug - retweeted my review round-up from last Friday.
