Vin Diesel Talks THE LAST WITCH HUNTER, D&D, and More (Plus a Massive Giveaway)

By now, you’ve likely had the chance to witness the majesty that is D&Diesel. For those of you who failed your Perception checks or those of you who have been living under a rock, Vin Diesel recently came to our offices and sat down with us, alongside members of Geek and Sundry’s Critical Role, to play Dungeons & Dragons. In short, it was awesome.


As many know, Diesel is a longtime fan of the pen-and-paper RPG, and his love for the game actually led to the creation of his latest film, The Last Witch Hunter. Diesel stars as Kaulder, an 800-year-old witch hunter trying to stop the newly-resurrected Witch Queen before it’s too late. If that wasn’t cool enough, then consider the fact that Kaulder was inspired by his old D&D character Melkor, a witch hunter whose class he created from scratch. After the dust settled from D&Diesel, I sat down with the mammoth movie star to talk about how exactly The Last Witch Hunter came to be, his lifelong relationship with Dungeons & Dragons, geeking out over his co-star Michael Caine, and much more.

As any D&D player worth their salt knows, no quest is complete without uncovering a sweet, sweet cache of loot. Well, since we can’t exactly give you an enchanted flaming sword (believe me, I tried), we have the next best thing: an epic The Last Witch Hunter prize pack.
