Calling all adventurers! The United States Postal Service (USPS) has announced a special treat for Dungeons and Dragons enthusiasts: a set of commemorative stamps celebrating the game’s 50th anniversary!
These ten unique stamps will feature iconic characters, creatures, and even deities that have captivated players for decades. From classic artwork found in the 1983 Players’ Manual to newer illustrations from the 2014 Dungeon Master’s Guide, there’s something for every DnD fan to cherish.
But the fun doesn’t stop there! Some stamps showcase hidden gems, like a stunning depiction of the mighty dragon god Tiamat, originally gracing a Magic: The Gathering card.
