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? 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.

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
