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 First Impressions? Unearthed Arcana 2021, Travelers of the Multiverse (D&D 5e)

Its been a while, but here we are with a new Unearthed Arcana today. Our theme is the multiverse, and our content is six new races for the game. Are all these options going to be included in Mordenkainen Presents: Monsters of the Multiverse? I guess we’ll find out early next year, although I wouldn’t be surprised if one or

The Future of D&D, Part Two: The Near Future

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

The Future of D&D, Part One: Spellcasting NPCs

There was a lot going on at D&D Celebration this year, especially regarding the final round of announcements at the Future of D&D segment. While I’m planning on getting to the discussion of 2024 and the “is it 5.5 or what” aura surrounding the 50th Anniversary edition of the core rulebooks, I wanted to start with something that’s already starting

What Do I Know About Adventurers League? Forgotten Realms Player’s Guide (September 22nd, 2021)

On September 22nd, a new D&D Adventurers League Forgotten Realms Player’s Guide was released. Before I dive into this, I wanted to do a quick refresher on personal involvement in Adventurers League. I played a lot during the Rage of Demons season and dropped in and out during the Curse of Strahd, Storm King’s Thunder, and Tomb of Annihilation seasons.

What Do I Know About Reviews? City of Cats (5e OGL)

The first campaign I ran in the Forgotten Realms was set in Waterdeep, after reading FR1 Waterdeep and the North. Before I even had a chance to read any of Fritz Leiber’s Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser stories, the D&D supplement detailing Lankhmar let me know I had to explore Nehwon. The Roman-esque, minotaur-ruled city of Kristophan was one of

What Do I Know About Reviews? Southlands Players Guide (5e OGL)

Last year was a huge year for Kobold Press Kickstarters, so this year is a huge year for Kobold Press Kickstarter fulfillment. In this case, I’m looking at one of the items from the Southlands 5e Kickstarter. This is a refresh and update of the Pathfinder era Southlands campaign book for Kobold Press’ Midgard setting. From this Kickstarter, I received
