What Do I Know About First Impressions? Death is Not the End (Fables: Citadel of the Unseen Sun Episode One; 5e OGL)

Ghostfire Gaming is currently a company that is hard to ignore in the D&D 5e space. The company has produced a campaign setting, player’s guide, and is working on a bestiary for their Grim Hollow setting, not to mention the other projects that they have helped shepherd through the Kickstarter process. While there have been a few starter adventures provided

What Do I Know About First Impressions? Arcadia Issue 11

I wanted to take a moment to acknowledge that Arcadia has published 11 issues in one year, in addition to delivering the Kingdoms and Warfare PDF, the Illrigger class, and the Beastheart class. That’s a pretty impressive years’ worth of material. Now that we stopped to think about how much we’ve already seen in 2021, let’s take a look at

What Do I Know About Reviews? She Is The Ancient (DMs Guild Product)

Vampires! Okay, I got that out of my system now. One of the tropes that has emerged regarding the Curse of Strahd adventure has been “what if Strahd, but . . .,” with one of the most popular of these twists being Strahd as a woman. While this has been mentioned several times in the past, She is the Ancient

What Do I Know About First Impressions? Vault of Magic (5e OGL)

It’s magic time! Or more specifically, it’s time to write a first impression article for Vault of Magic, the D&D 5e supplement from Kobold Press that introduces an entire volume of new magic items to the game. Why is this a first impression instead of a review? Mainly because any book that has a ton of individual entries on a

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

What Do I Know About Reviews? Dread Metrol: Into the Mists (DMs Guild Product)

If you detect a theme in the most recent reviews on the blog here, you may be able to determine how far behind I am on my reviews. With that in mind, let’s look at the totally seasonal review of Dread Metrol: Into the Mists. If you haven’t heard of this product before, this is another new Eberron related product

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
