What Do I Know About Reviews? Artificer Subclasses: A Dark Fantasy Supplement (DMs Guild)

Here’s a review that probably would have been good to finish last month, but just pretend November continues to be spooky. If you happened to catch my review of the Grim Hollow Players Guide, this supplement is another Ghostfire Gaming product, however, as it was released on the DMs Guild, it has no specific setting information included. Which makes sense,

What Do I Know About Reviews? Minsc and Boo’s Journal of Villainy (D&D 5e)

Today, I want to look at a product I wasn’t really expecting. From time-to-time WOTC will release special PDF content to support charities like Extra Life, and this product supports that charity as well. Unlike many of these releases, which might provide a new playable race and/or a short adventure, this product is hefty, the size of many standard RPG

What Do I Know About Reviews? IDW Year Five Tie-In (Star Trek Adventures)

While we initially got to see some of the future design of “caster” stat blocks in The Wild Beyond the Witchlight, this doesn’t appear to be a one-time experiment. During the Future of D&D segment of D&D Celebration, new slipcase editions of books were announced, and they aren’t 100% reprints of the original versions of these books. This reissue is
