What Do I Know About Crowdfunding? Flee, Mortals! (5e OGL)

This monster book snuck up on me. It must be an Ambusher. Okay, if you are wondering what I’m talking about, I’m going to look at the preview material for MCDM’s most recent Kickstarter, for their bestiary Flee, Mortals! Disclaimer James Introcaso at MCDM sent me the preview material early, which I read immediately, but haven’t had time to expound

It’s Arcadia O’clock again, and we’re going to be looking at the fourteenth issue of MCDM’s D&D 5e . . . er . . . 5e OGL magazine. Have I ever mentioned how hard it is to come up with introductions for these reviews and first impressions? Well, now I have. Disclaimer While I am a member of the MCDM

Revisiting Unearthed Arcana: Heroes of Krynn

I don’t revisit my first impression of an Unearthed Arcana article, but after hearing how widely disparate the reads for this Unearthed Arcana were, I wanted to revisit the document and also throw in how I read some of these (beyond my mistaken read). Return of the Kender! This is a quicker revisit than what I’m going to present later,

What Do I Know About First Impressions? Unearthed Arcana 2022 Heroes of Krynn (D&D 5e)

A new Unearthed Arcana dropped today. Almost like a flaming mountain thrown at a planet by angry gods, starting 300 years of misery and despair, only to be ended with the return of a long-lost weapon, the Dragonlance! Sorry, I had to build up to it. Yes, today’s Unearthed Arcana is Heroes of Krynn, and it’s got a lot of

What Do I Know About First Impressions? Acadia Issue 12

I’m a bit late on this month’s issue of Arcadia. Turns out, there was some kind of monster book that came out last week, and I may have had a game and an online convention to prep for and . . . look, I let you all down, and I’m submitting myself for the Atonement version of the ceremony spell.

What Do I Know About First Impressions? Monsters of the Multiverse Part One, Fantastical Races (D&D 5e)

I’ve been waiting for Mordenkainen Presents Monsters of the Multiverse for a while, since it was announced. Not only were we going to get redesigned monster stats for several creatures, but the odds were that we were going to see a good number of player option ancestries reworked using D&D’s more recent design philosophies. Since Volo’s Guide to Monsters wasn’t

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. Today’s bite comes via Teos (Alphastream) Abadia. Last June when he was a guest on Dragon Talk, the official D&D podcast, he wrote up the

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
