NEW
D&D Cocktail Recipe Book Will Add a Kick to Game Night

The best Dungeon Masters know how to serve up an immersive, challenging experience. But that doesn’t make them qualified to serve you the perfect adult beverage during your raid. That could change soon though for all players. A new Kickstarter campaign wants to help turn your party into an actual party, with Mystic Libations: Critical Cocktails for the Thirsty Adventurer! It’s a book of drinks designed by, and for, Dungeons & Dragons players (though it is not an official D&D book).

And it even comes with its own RPG and and an original class of player.

“Trader Brandon” (a.k.a. Brandon Kleyla) served as the lead decorator and writer for the popular Trader Sam’s at Disney Parks (both Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar and Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto). Now he has teamed up with actor and writer Todd Stashwick (12 Monkeys) for a delectable D&D partnership. Mystic Libations features over 100 drink recipes “crafted with RPG gaming in mind.” But this isn’t just a catalogue of cocktails. The book also features “fun in-world stories,” a “playable RPG adventure,” and “an all new player class created exclusively” for readers.

Kleyla and Stashwick say that the project originated with them creating original custom drinks for their own D&D nights. They realized they should share their concoctions with other RPG enthusiasts. The duo has also called in help from other professionals for the book. That includes mixologist Roy Hanzel, artist Zelda Devon who did the cover art, and graphic artist Skipper Hoss who will create aged pages, “easy to follow iconography,” format the cover, and create “a wonderful vintage look.”

That is of course if the campaign reaches its goal of $22,500. It has until February 6 to get there. You can back the campaign and score a copy of the book for as little as $40. The campaign has plenty of tiers of extras too. Or you can grab five friends and pony up $2,000 for a special level of fun. That includes either Todd or Brandon serving as your personal Dungeon Master for a private online game of D&D.

If you go for one of those $2K “Epic Adventure” packs, we’re pretty sure your party is going to be just that.
