What Do I Know About Reviews? Mirt’s Undermountain Survival Guide (Dungeon Masters Guild Product, D&D 5e)

It’s time to dig into another Dungeon Masters Guild product. This is one that I meant to pick up a while ago, so I circled back around to it recently.

In 2018 I picked up the package where all of the books get added as they are released. I had originally started breaking this down by individual release, but it

What Do I Know About First Impressions? Unearthed Arcana 2020 Subclasses Part 3 (D&D 5e)

Even more subclasses, this time with (I’m pretty sure) way less controversy attached to them. Unearthed Arcana 2020 Subclasses 3 This time, we’ve got subclasses for the artificer, druid, and ranger. I think it’s interesting that we’re seeing an artificer subclass come up, because that either implies another Eberron source, or it’s a statement of intent that just because artificer
