Like many geeks Stranger Things is one of my favorite shows, and not just because the series opens with a group of 80s kids playing tabletop Dungeons & Dragons in the basement.

Those who have read (and/or watched) my Waterdeep: Dragon Heist review know that I was a bit miffed that there was no actual heist. Thankfully the DMs Guild is here to set things straight.
