The D&D Dad blog reviews Temple of the Nightbringers!
In this adventure for Level 1 players, we had two completely new players to show the ropes, along with one player who’d played just a few times, and my now-seasoned players Drew and Mitch. For details, see my spoilerific Adventure Report.
Once again, we had a great time. I’m noticing a trend with these M.T. Black adventures.

The D&D Dad blog reviews by Wizard in a Bottle by M.T. Black.
This was our second M.T. Black adventure in a row, and it did not disappoint! We followed up Tower of the Mad Mage with this coastal adventure for level 2 players, and the story has a fascinating sense of history to it (see my spoilerific Adventure Report for details). This one took us about four and a half hours to complete.

The D&D Dad blog reviews Troll Trouble by Gary Whicker!
Just for kicks, the boys (aka Drew and Mitch) and I played some D&D while we were at the beach, and the adventure we played was “Troll Trouble” by Gary Whicker. We all rolled up new Level 1 characters, and I ran a character along with doing my DM duties, and we finished the quest in two session, about 6 hours total, I’d say.
It was another fun, classic-feeling one-shot (two-shot?) adventure (see my spoilerific Adventure Report for details). This adventure is aimed at characters level 1 or 2.

The D&D Dad blog reviews Tower of the Mad Mage by M.T. Black.
This was our first-ever one-shot adventure, and it was a blast! Kudos to M.T. Black for creating a slick, easy-to-use adventure for 1st level players. It definitely felt like a “classic D&D” adventure, but with some nice updates and unexpected twists. Continue reading D&D Dad: Tower of the Mad Mage (review)
As part of this blog series, I wanted to do brief reviews of the different Dungeons & Dragons adventure we’ve played. We’re focusing on 5th edition D&D only, by the way.
TIP: For each adventure we play, I write a short recap that’s FULL of spoilers. If you’re a DM, check out the Lost Mine Adventure Report.
With these reviews I want to do more than just give a thumbs-up or thumbs-down. I want to give my opinion on what I liked, of course, but also give you tips if you’re a new Dungeon Master and trying out these adventures. I want to make sure you start playing with all the tools and knowledge you need to make it a blast for everyone at the table. Even if it’s your first time as DM!
That said, the adventure that comes with the D&D Starter set, “The Lost Mine of Phandelver,” is really, really good. Let’s break it on down…
