Grab your handy portal gun and oblique pop culture references because Rick and Morty have come to D&D again. This time it’s an adventure YOU can play.
That’s right folks, Rick and Morty TV’s darling dimension-hopping dysfunctional duo are coming once again to D&D. Only don’t call it a comeback, because they’ve been here for years. Well, months at least, if you go by the previous comic book series, which follows Rick, Morty, Beth, Jerry, and Summer on a wild adventure into the magical world(s) of D&D. But we’re not here to talk about that series, instead we’re here to talk about the upcoming Rick and Morty D&D Starter Set, up for pre-order now at your Friendly Local Game Store.
This adventure, created by the same excellent team that brought you the comic series–so Jim Zub, Pat “Finish The Kingkiller Chronicles Already” Rothfuss, and artist Troy Little–offers up an introductory experience that makes for an excellent companion to the comic series. So if you’re interested in exploring a beginning campaign that takes you from levels 1-3 and features some cusses and cartoon mayhem, this is probably the starter box for you. Check out the details below.
