 Dungeons & Doodles

Our latest Dungeons & Doodles episode has now aired! This time, Stan!, Magic: the Gathering’s Matt Cavotta, and special guest star Dani Hartel joined this  Dragon+ livestream. The questions we asked them to draw?

  1. MORDENKAINEN’S REJECTS: The archmage Mordenkainen was very discerning when picking creatures to go into his Tome of Foes, and he doesn’t suffer fools gladly. Can you draw a completely unworthy creature that ol’ Mordie would just laugh out of contention?
  2. BLACKSMITH FASHION WEEK: Armorers and master smiths are always experimenting with new raw materials in order to create ever more effective armor. But not every experiment produces winning results…
  3. MONSTER MAKE-OVER: There have been a lot of cool monsters invented for D&D over the years, but let’s face it… there have been some pretty ridiculous ones, too. Let’s see if you can give a make-over to one and turn it into something cool (or at least less cringe-worthy).
  4. HARD TO FIND HAGS: Hags are one of the most adaptable monsters in D&D. Whatever terrain or location adventurers go to, there always seem to be a particular type of hag adapted just to that environment. Of course, that means there must be some pretty niche hags out there!

And, their finished pieces—enjoy!
