Campaigns & Companions
A little bit of an impromptu review of a little book that I received in a box a few weeks ago.
Opening the door to our local postie, I was greeted by a strange box from Rebellion Publishing and found a whole load of goodies inside
Upon opening said mysterious package, I was greeted by this little lot, telling me about their latest release Campaigns & Companions. A humourous little time about D&D and what it would look like if our pets played the game.
So, what's it about then?
What if your pets could play D&D? And what if they were… kind of jerks about it?
If there are two things all geeks love, it’s roleplaying games, and their pets. So why not fuse the two? It’s time to grab your dice, dust off that character sheet, and let your cat or dog (or guinea pig, or iguana, or budgie) accompany you on an epic adventure! It’ll be great!
…unless your pets are jerks.
This little number is a stroke of genius and has me in stitches every time I look at it. Rebellion have got together a bunch of talented people like Andi Ewington, Rhianna Pratchett, Calum Alexander Watt and Alex de Campi to write and illustrate Campaigns & Companions, and as soon as I opened the first page I knew it was going to be a case of 'All aboard to Sniggersville' as I found myself doing just that!
Campaigns and Companions is a wonderfully illustrated book full of sly humour to complete daftness. The artwork is gorgeous, just take a look
And like I said, it had me sniggering in places to outright guffaws in others (which I must say prompted questioning looks from the Mrs!).
This is one of those books that will make a perfect prezzie for that pet obsessed D&D'er in your life. And as there is a certain seasonal event heading towards us very soon, it would make a chucklesome little sticking filler (please be aware to remove legs from said stockings prior to shoving books in socks, as any book related scratchiness is definitely not a thing to do with me!)
