Having awesome accessories for playing D&D will make you feel really epic!

To inspire you, here are some of my favourite Dungeons and Dragons accessories for players. Be warned though! If you get one, your fellow D&D players may go goblin green with envy!

1. Health potion

As much as we’d like to be on full HP all the time, it just doesn’t happen! Whether you’re healing yourself or your allies, you can now look epic when you do!

I love that when you need to roll to heal, you can pop the lid off the top of the glass bottle, give it a shake and hope you roll double 4s! The resin at the bottom of each bottle is my favourite thing!

You choose a custom colour for your potion too. If you’re playing an Orc, maybe you want green? Or if you’re playing an elf attuned with the fey, maybe you want a magical purple or blue hue for your character. The choice is yours!

2. Tabletop RPG adventurer’s backpack

If you’re travelling to your friend’s house to play, you may be loaded up with snacks, your player’s handbook, ability cards, dice, dice tray, your mini, your journal, and maybe your tablet or laptop.

It’s actually a fair amount to take. Why not put it in an awesome bag that gets you into character before you even get there!

I think this backpack looks like you’re going on an epic adventure! And it’s function is just as good as its design. It has a foam insert section for storing your minis, padded dividers for storing your books, character sheet and tablet and it’s waterproof.

I especially love the little clips at the bottom for rolling up and carrying maps! It’s so cool!

Check out this adventurer’s backpack on Amazon.

3. Custom adventure journal

I’m guilty of just grabbing any old notebook to use for my D&D journal. But I always feel so bad. The journal of my adventure deserves an incredible home!

There are some amazing journals on Etsy made by super talented crafters who love D&D as much as you do. I especially love this one. It’s handmade just for you with a custom portrait of your character!

It’s beautiful on the inside too! As well as the gorgeous character sheet, every other page has a beautifully illustrated border design. You can choose the design you like the most for your journal pages like the inside of a dungeon, to books, to plants, and more!

I love that you can add as many or as few pages and sections as you need. You can add space for spells if you need it, a songbook for all you bards out there, and even a grimoire. 

One thing I really love about this journal is that because it’s bound with discs you can add additional pages if you start a new character, or you need more room for a campaign that goes on for years.  

You can even upgrade the character sheet to a dry wipe version! You can make it truly yours.

Check out all the D&D journal options in The Orderly Owl’s store on Etsy.

4. Immense dice bag

Every new character I create needs a new dice set (or two!). Which means I’ve collected quite a few dice over the years!

Sometimes, I want to play with one of my old favourite dice sets instead of the one for my current character. That’s where this awesome dice storage bag comes in!

With 7 compartments, you can keep all your sets separated. Why not take your favourite 7 sets along with you to every D&D session? Then you can go with what you feel like on the day.

This epic dice bag is such a cool solution for your D&D dice storage!

Check out the immense dice bag on Amazon.

5. Dice jail

Dice not playing nice? Throw them into jail for a while! That’ll teach them a lesson.

There are always negative consequences for rolling a 1…

6. Engraved drinking horn

You’ll really feel the part drinking from one of these drinking horns!

Made from real bovine horn, they will transport you to a different time. They are only suitable for cold drinks because hot ones would damage them, but they are perfect for an ale!

You can request a custom engraving too! How cool is that? You could engrave your name, the name of your character, or even a catchphrase they are known for.

Take a look at these drinking horns on Etsy.

7. Wooden tankard

If a bovine drinking horn isn’t your thing, how about a solid oak wooden tankard for your D&D mead? Same kind of feeling as the drinking horn, but not made from animal products.

The wooden stein has a metal insert inside for easy cleaning which means it can hold hot and cold drinks! Pick your favourite colour of wood too.

8. Dragon’s eye dice bag

Store your dice in a bag made from the dragon you slew in a previous D&D campaign! The craftsmanship on these dice bags on Etsy is amazing. They are made from quality components and are simply stunning.

Check out the dragon’s eye dice bags and the other items in Randy’s shop. He does awesome card deck cases, journals and even game room banners!

9. Magical light up potions

If your character is any kind of spellcaster, or even if they have some arcana knowledge these glowing potion bottles are perfect for getting in character!

How cool would it be to have one of these light-up potions on the table while you play?

It would look awesome clipped to your backpack too!

Go take a look at the shiny goodness of these bottles on Etsy.

10. Metal dice

Your d20 and friends are at the centre of all your adventures! We all know you can never have enough dice. It’s a proven fact. Isn’t it about time you treated yourself to some new ones?

I love how metal dice feel so cool in your hand!

There are two main types, edged and unedged. I prefer unedged, they look cooler to me as though they have been lovingly hand carved from a solid chunk of metal.

These bronze ones are stunning! They make me think of dwarven forges and gnomes making contraptions.

Go feast your eyes on these bronze metal dice on Etsy.

11. Fancy dice tray

Metal dice are amazing but they can leave dents and marks on wooden tables! Powerful things metal dice. So they need a perfect companion – a dice tray.

Dice trays are useful for regular dice too. Sprightly little things bouncing all over the place! I used to throw mine on the floor all the time before I got a dice tray.

You can get yourself a basic dice tray in a plain colour for sure, but if you want to have a really cool one, I like this Tree of Gondor one. It’s made from neoprene so you can wipe it down incase some stray snacks or drops of drink fall on it. Oops! All too common in the snack fest that is a D&D gaming session!

Neoprene means that not only does this dice tray flat-pack, but you can roll it up too so it doesn’t get creased or bashed about in your bag. I like the rolled up sides too so that dice will tumble around nicely rather than hitting a flat side mid-roll and lose some momentum.

Go check out this Tree of Gondor dice tray on Etsy.

12. Deity talisman

Do you have a deity that grants you particular boons? How about a talisman accessory to wear at your Dungeons and Dragons gaming sessions?

If you’re a devout follower of Asmodeus, this talisman of Asmodeus is incredible! The quality is amazing and it looks so cool.

The Etsy seller Shane, also has other D&D talismans like the Boon of Moradin, the False Hand of Vecna, the Symbol of Pelar, Symbol of the Raven Queen.

Take a look at this talisman in his store Gorg’s Emporium. You may even find a magic ring or two that gives you +1 Dexterity or +1 Strength!

13. Hero vault

I am always scrabbling around for a pencil on D&D day! I don’t know how they all disappear! I swear there are little pixies that come and take them. Perhaps the same ones that take socks and teaspoons!

But you can always lock your pencil in a vault between sessions – a Hero Vault!

It’ll stop your mini getting bashed about as well! When you’ve spent hours doing your best paint job on it, it’s heartbreaking to find it got chipped in your bag!

In this gorgeous wooden hero vault, there’s space for your mini, two set of dice and your pencil. The lid even doubles as a dice tray!

Take a look at the beautiful shades this hero vault comes in on Etsy.

Which D&D accessories will you treat yourself to?

There are so many cool accessories for D&D from dice storage, to journals to props to get you in character! Which ones will you get?

As well as all this cool adventurer’s gear, I’m seriously thinking about getting this leather monster games room banner from Etsy! Just look at those little monster fangs! It feels like the ultimate accessory to me!
