I did something really cool recently that I’ve wanted to do for years but have never gotten the chance to. I am not nearly coordinated enough for LARP (Live Action Role Play) battles and they’ve always quite intimidated me. I have always wanted to explore playing a character… but fighting is just not for me. So imagine my absolute JOY when I found out about Conclave of Chaos!
Barbarians are one of those D&D classes that it’s hard to get wrong… but can cause chaos when it comes to their unchallenged will to fight. Here are some tips on how to make the most out of your barbarian character in Dungeons and Dragons.

Ever wondered what to get for your friend who is into Dungeons and Dragons? Once I started playing D’n’D it totally changed my life in so many ways! I’ve seen so much love for the game across the internet and so I thought I’d pick my selection of the best Dungeons and Dragons Gifts!
My new favourite nerd heaven, Fantayzia Designs, invited me to play with their retro games consoles and check out their nostalgic treasures. I sat for a few hours and have to say it’s now my absolute favourite for nerdy nostalgia and creations at FarGo Village, Coventry.
