Being an MMORPG game, World of Warcraft could be a severe funding. A brand new undertaking is sidestepping all of that by transferring WoW into the Dungeons & Dragons universe, one set of race stats at a time.
This is all of the work of Wyatt Trull, a author who’s labored on dozens of DnD information books. Over the course of months and years, he’s been doing up stat sheets for all of Warcraft’s races, in information dubbed ‘Blood & Thunder’, most not too long ago posting his tackle the Murlocs on Reddit. Last 12 months, he shared the Furbolg stats, and has since seen demand to complete the information.
“I’ve gotten a lot of requests to continue this series over the last year, but I had to focus on writing things that would pay the bills,” Trull feedback. “Now that my schedule is a bit freer, I started releasing the WoW races weekly on my Instagram and Patreon. Patrons get to vote on the next week’s race. I’m also planning to release a fully written The Culling of Stratholme campaign so other DMs can also dive into Warcraft in their own right.”
Trull has playtested two campaigns: one through the aforementioned Culling of Stratholme, and one other different through the Dark Iron invasion of Grim Batol. You can see all of the sheets so far on his Instagram.
In a post on his website, Trully explains learn how to play DnD using his WoW system, and offers some caveats absolute combining the 2. “It goes without saying, however, that WoW is a videogame and DnD is a TTRPG,” the put up reads. “The former is full of wacky mechanics, objects, and system choices; the latter must practice a much higher degree of realism. For example, a goblin has a racial ability where they can summon a hobgoblin that allows them instant access to their character’s bank accounts. This does not fly in a TTRPG system.”
