Introducing the Mini-Dungeon Assistant!

Find the perfect adventure! Select your preferred level, party size, environment, undead, monsters, traps, puzzles, riddles, and more.

The Adventure Assistant (http://mdt.aawgames.com/) is an interactive web application designed specifically for the Mini-Dungeon Tome. Now you can browse details for every adventure in the book or search for your perfect adventure from the Mini-Dungeon Tome by criteria including game system, level, party size, environment, and whether the adventure should include undead encounters, traps, or puzzles and riddles.

Each adventure is detailed in the application including a preview map (with map pack ID), location in the book, a snippet of the adventure introduction, and full details about the adventure including special preparation instructions for encounters and traps (including page numbers for each in the book). The display is formatted for convenience and presents color coding to match the Mini-Dungeon Tome layout, a series of at-a-glance icons indicating what the adventure includes, and a design to note the environment of the adventure.

We hope you find this tool useful and that the functionality makes it easier to find that perfect adventure from within the Mini-Dungeon Tome’s massive collection.

Tales from the Tabletop™ Explanation

Each week we will post a new comic for Tales from the Tabletop™ with one or more blank caption/dialog balloons. Post your own witty dialog in the comments for these rockin’ comics on our Facebook Page. If your entry is selected as the funniest, we’ll use your caption and you win awesome stuff like adventures, dice, or gooey cinnamon rolls!

What is this awesome looking comic about tabletop gaming?

Tales from the Tabletop™ is a tabletop gaming comic drawn and colored by Jacob Blackmon. Jacob fantasizes about Tales from the Tabletop™ by candlelight in the late evening hours and has been known to conduct secret arcane rituals involving cute cats and beautiful anime cosplay girls.

Jonathan G. Nelson comes up with some awesome, stupid, and downright ridiculous ideas which Jacob frequently shakes his head at, and then smiles because he knows that he can transform those frantic ramblings about green slime and three-headed dire reindeer (with the fiendish template) into something which ordinary folks just might understand.

Justin Andrew Mason designed and created our logo (with one hand) in about 10 minutes, while also writing an adventure, drinking energy drinks, and designing layouts for about 25 different websites all at the same time –  and the logo still came out pretty rockin’!

So that’s it! I got off to rambling, but yeah- that’s the team!

Why are the word balloons blank on newly posted Tales from the Tabletop™ comics?

The word balloons are left empty so YOU can post comments writing in what you think should go there. Anything is fair game so long as it’s not racist, sexist, or any other “-ist” which we deem archaic, ignorant nonsense.

Why should I do this?

You have been tempted by the powers of the dark side. You reach for a piece of charcoal or chalk, and begin to etch on the dungeon wall; your body is weary of carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders… You succumb to your darkest comedic desires, and feel the need to write hilarious dialog for a tabletop gaming comic book! What strange desires you have! Oh man, I want a hot gooey cinnamon roll right now! Doesn’t that sound good!?

What do I get if my entry is chosen?

The entry deemed by our panel of judges (the team) to be the funniest wins something awesome like a print adventure, a free subscription to AdventureAWeek.com, a sack of dice, etc.
