Meet Expy The Red Dragon

Expy is the mascot for DungeonMastering.com and the real mastermind behind Expy Games. He likes to hoard treasure, terrorize neighbors, burn down villages, and tell white dragon jokes..

No matter how fearful the legends claim dragons are, they always end up being defeated in 5 rounds by adventuring parties they encounter. That’s what dragons are – experience points for the heroes in your Dungeons & Dragon party. And this mascot is no different, hence the name Expy.

I would really like to see you keep up the good work on this site so i have to ask, do you take donations? Great job again and thanks!

    We don’t take donations. I’m lucky enough to get a little money from advertising. Thanks for the offer though.
