Reasons To Check Out Xanathar's Guide To Everything At Game Goblins

February 10, 2018
Xanathar is a psychotic, crime lord beholder. His many eyes see many things, except for his own limitations. Xanathar’s Guide to Everything is an expansion for the fifth-edition adventure of D&D, Tomb of Annihilation.

Xanathar narrates the book. It is essentially a collection everything he has learned as a crime lord—he thinks he knows everything. His notes and sentiments are often more comical than helpful. Here is why you should check it out at Game Goblins. Game Goblins is conveniently located in central Arkansas. Learn more:


There are many reasons this expansion is beneficial to new Dungeon and Dragons players. For starters. In the back of Xanathar’s Guide to Everything you find table after table of name ideas. This is an excellent place for a new player to start because a D&D character is easier to build and visualize if you have a name that appropriately reflects their nature and behavior.

Xanathar’s Guide to Everything also includes 30 new subclasses and additional resources for building backstories. Something that is often not factored into a round of D&D.

Xanathar’s Guide to Everything has fun, Magical Toys.

Yes, toys. Unfortunately not many of the magical items and spells will be useful on a battlefield. But it does help you grow interest in your character. Perhaps your character could use a Cloak of Billowing, which billows dramatically on command. Does your character value the culinary arts? Heward’s Handy Spice Pouch will flavor a meal to perfection every time.

There are a few more magical items with more obvious value like the Candle of the Deep which will help you see underwater—like in Waterdeep, the home of Xanathar and his pet goldfish.

Much of this expansion is new toys and spells to use on quests. They might seem unhelpful. Don’t count them off just yet. Xanathar’s Guide to Everything updates rules regarding trap building and more. This gives the Dungeon Master more room to be creative.


Possibly the most anticipated aspect of the Xanathar’s Guide to Everything expansion is the 30 subclasses introduced to the game.

A drunken monk that can handle themselves on a battlefield? A Bard charming an entire crowd? A Paladin leaning on the evil side of lawful? The list goes on—and on, and on, and on.

Xanathar’s Guide to Everything is available at Game Goblins, located on Bowman Road. If you are interested in learning more about this expansion, or perhaps D&D as a beginner, stop by and learn more about our RPG guild.
