What Do I Know About Reviews? The Game Master’s Guide to Evolving Magic Items

I would just like to start this review by saying bless you to anyone making some bite-sized content for various RPGs, so I have something to talk about while I’m working on larger review projects.

What Do I Know About First Impressions? Arcadia Issue 10 (5e OGL)

I’m a little late looking at this issue. I think there was some kind of holiday, and there was food. It’s kind of confusing. At any rate, I’m going to pass along some thoughts on MCDM’s Arcadia Issue 10. Ten issues already, that really snuck up on us. Disclaimer While I am a member of the MCDM Patreon, I was
