Praise for Dungeons & Dragons Worlds & Realms

“This incredible journey through the fantastical realms that inspired countless tables to roll dice together is both an educational and a visual treat! A wonderful collection that marries the history of the game with in-world stories and gorgeous art to present a unique and wondrous new way to engage, or re-engage, these worlds. I thoroughly enjoyed it.”—Matt Mercer

Worlds & Realms is a masterwork of in-universe storytelling and organic worldbuilding that narratively unifies the D&D multiverse for the first time in its history. It is for everyone who skips the stats and tables to devour the narrative details of the campaign setting and the legendary heroes who define them.”—Wil Wheaton
