When you think of Dungeons and Dragons, you probably don’t think of Penny Arcade. But that’s just what we’ve got here with the new sourcebook.
To be fair, this new sourcebook for D&D isn’t really, well, D&D. It is, in that it’s based on the rule set for the latest incarnation of Wizards of the Coast’s popular RPG, but it also isn’t in that it’s set in the world of Penny Arcade’s Acquisitions Inc.
I can’t say I’m too familiar with the property, but I assume Penny Arcade fans would be. And as you’ll see, the sourcebook doesn’t have to stand on its own either. Everything is fully compatible with other D&D games.
Here’s a bit from the press release:
Due to a recent surge of deceased workers
