[​IMG] In 2017, Dungeons and Dragons Online will officially add its third campaign setting to its melting pot with Ravenloft.

Thomas Blair discusses what he calls our "newest crafting profession" where players dig up bodies, restoring them and putting them together with others to make a new playable class.

In fact, the official site never mentions exercise, just exploring. That being said, we don't [...] This article was published by the word-wranglers at Massively Overpowered.

Patch 3.5 is here! With The Far Edge of Fate, we have a new raid, a new extreme primal and two dungeons to chew on. That -- along with a host of quality of life changes and additions across the board -- have really built upon the content available.
