The classic Dungeons & Dragons character from the 80’s anime has arrived in the Idle Champions of the Forgotten Realms, the officially licensed D&D strategy game. Developer Codename Entertainment is preparing to release the game’s 100th hero, and to celebrate, they’re bringing the Dungeon Master from the 1983 D&D animation into the fold.
Idle Champions is a free-to-play D&D strategy game available on Xbox, PlayStation, Switch, PC, iOS and Android. The game brings together characters from different novels, campaigns, and shows in a large D&D crossover.

Now, the latest hero to join the ranks is the Dungeon Master from the 1983 classic D&D animation. Players can unlock it in a running event that starts on April 27 and ends on May 9. In addition to Dungeon Master Champion, the content also includes United the Unicorn from the cartoon. The developers say it was great to include these classic characters in the game.
“He was our 100th hero, and we had plenty of classic D&D characters to choose from,” said Chris Dupuis, head of live services for Idle Champions. “However, when we finally got to the Dungeon Master, everything fell into place. I knew we had something special in the works.”
