The Vault Of The Mad Crafter. Forest Of Delusion. The Demon Of Queen Haven. Ship Of The Dead. These and many more are the adventures that await a band of heroes ready to tackle volume 2 of Rolled & Told.
Rolled & Told Vol. 2 is the collection of materials presented earlier in issues 7 through 12. Like earlier Rolled & Told campaigns, it utilized Dungeons & Dragons 5E so having the core rulebook is a bit of a requirement for running these modules. Rolled & Told puts a lot of work into their campaigns. There’s a lot of maps, comic strips, art, new characters, new creatures, new items, ect. I really, really feel that any DM or Dungeon Master that runs anything from R & T will get their money’s worth out of the book but an enjoyable time with friends playing this.
My personal favorite campaign is The Secret Of The Plague Spiders, which involves the story of a hero that had helped save the town from the spider plague. However, the spiders have returned. It’s one that I’ve played and it’s a total blast.
Aside from the campaigns, each issue had articles about different topics associated with tabletop gaming/D & D. The heroes you can choose to use for the campaign are detailed near the back of the book. There’s a lot of useful information but it’s this extra content that does set it aside from the other campaign books.
If there’s one drawback and it’s a minor one that I have, it’s that the campaign settings are a bit smaller than you might find with something offered by Wizards Of The Coast or Paizo. The stakes always feel a little higher, too, with those companies. However, Rolled & Told’s variety of smaller campaigns are a blast to play and sometimes, it’s nice to run something that can be done in a lot less time. Overall, Rolled & Told is an awesome product and definitely worthy of being the next epic adventure for your group. This is a big, thick book that will take you quite a while to get through.
