About beadle & grimm's
Hi, and welcome to Beadle & Grimm’s Pandemonium Warehouse. I’m actor Matthew Lillard. You’ve seen me in films like Scream, The Descendants, and SLC Punk. You’ve also seen my evil doppelganger in films like Summer Catch, Dish Dogs, and Wing Commander.
Now, what was the first thing that went through your mind when you read that last sentence? If you thought to yourself, “Come on, Mr. Lillard, Wing Commander wasn’t that bad!” then, well – right?! It was good! Who else was doing cats as alien invaders back then? No-one, that’s who. You should totally come over and watch it with me some time, I have like 19 copies on VHS.
On the other hand, if you read that and thought, “Come on, Mr. Lillard, “evil doppelganger” is completely wrong. Doppelgangers are Neutral, as clearly documented on page 82 of the Monster Manual.” If that’s what you thought, then you are in the right place, and Beadle & Grimm’s has something fantastic to share with you.
This is the Platinum Edition of Waterdeep: Dragon Heist for Dungeons & Dragons. Produced by Beadle & Grimm's under an arrangement with Wizards of the Coast, the Platinum Edition is filled with all the elements a Dungeon Master needs to create an amazing experience for their players. Whether you’re a lifelong gamer or a first time DM, the Platinum Edition is a must-have for creating the ultimate tabletop experience.
But what is Beadle & Grimm’s? To answer that, let’s rewind to 1991. I’m a starving acting student living on Manhattan’s East Side.
After a Super Bowl party, my four best friends and I decided to try breaking out a game we hadn’t played since we were kids – Dungeons & Dragons. We played around a table in a theatre basement until 3 the next morning, and the five of us have been playing together ever since.
Around a table. You heard that part, right? We’re old school. Video games are awesome, Skype is great, but nothing can replace sitting around with your friends, rolling real dice, and yelling at the Dungeon Master when your disarm roll fails.
Beadle & Grimm’s is the new champion of the old school analog D&D game. And the Platinum Edition of Waterdeep: Dragon Heist is all about making that table top experience as good as it can be.
And Platinum Editions are just the beginning. In the coming years, Beadle & Grimm’s hopes to complement our flagship product with additional versions of every Wizards of the Coast adventure: Gold, Silver, and maybe even Copper. But let's not get ahead of ourselves.
Beadle & Grimm’s Pandemonium Warehouse is the mid-life crisis of five D&D players who have been playing for over 200 years combined. Named after two of our earliest characters, Beadle the Dungeon Delver and Grimm the Giantslayer, Beadle & Grimm’s Pandemonium Warehouse is a way for the five of us to share our love of the game with other players who appreciate tabletop roleplaying as much as we do.
So, I hear you asking – where are those other four guys? Well… I'll let them out once they're done watching Wing Commander. We do this once a month, whether they want to or not. It makes them strong.
Thanks for visiting Beadle & Grimm’s. We hope to hear from you soon!
Bill, Charlie, Jon, Matthew, and Paul
