D&Dizzle: Dragons in the Hood Kickstarter

DnDizzle, an affectionate parody of 80s & 90s hip-hop culture and classic adventure role-playing.

“Thug life aint always what it’s cracked up to be; especially when you got a big-ass dragon living in your hood.” In DnDizzle you take on the role of a heroic OG battling against the menacing black dragon that has taken over the city dump and is summoning monsters to destroy the OGs and their hood.

DnDizzle comes in a sleek, 4″x6″ pocket sized format for the nerd OG on the go. All you need is 2d6 (your bones), the book, a pencil, and some paper. From there you are good to go. This game is for mature players for language, drug use and violence. If you don’t mind some fantasy adult content and would like a good laugh, come join the fight and become a legend of the hood.

Why Combine Hip-Hop & Adventure Role-playing?

“DnDizzle is my way of paying homage to my youth in a humorous, romanticized light. In DnDizzle, anyone can be a hero. When people think of the of the 80s and 90s rap world they often associate it with some of the negative things in the culture and forget about the positives. Hip-hop raised awareness on issues of race and class discrimination, advanced artistic expression in low-income areas, and built a sense of community. When I got older I moved out of the projects and began getting into role-playing games, which lead me to my career as a game designer and writer. DnDizzle was born from my love of hip-hop and gaming, proving you can take the geek out of the hood but you can’t take the hood out of the geek.”
