What Do I Know About First Impressions? Arcadia #15 (5e OGL)

It’s April, and that means the flowers are in bloom, and the sun is shining, right up until it freezes over again, kills the young buds on the plants, and the gray expanse of despair dulls all joy and hope emanating from the sun. You know, Spring! It’s also time to look at this month’s issue of Arcadia from MCDM.

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.

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 Reviews? Upsetting the Balance (Star Trek Adventures 2d20)

Ever since the Klingon core rulebook came out for Star Trek Adventures, I’ve been kind of fascinated with the concept of trying to keep a story feeling like Star Trek, while still presenting it from the point of view of the Klingon Empire. I enjoyed the previous Klingon mission, The Sleeping Beast, because the adventure is about protecting a Klingon

What Do I Know About First Impressions? Arcadia Issue 13 (5e OGL)

It’s time to take a look at the latest issue of Arcadia, moving into the second year of life for the magazine. I would feel the distinct encroachment of time if it weren’t for the fact that the last few years have scoured any sense of impending chronology from my psyche. That said, let’s dive into lucky number 13. Disclaimer

What Do I Know About Reviews? Bloodied & Bruised: Monster Manual (DMs Guild Product)

While D&D 4th edition remains the only version of D&D that I have played, but not DM’d, I did spend a lot of time pouring over the monsters and mechanics in the game. One of my favorite developments from 4e was the Bloodied condition. In some ways, it delivered on what D&D has said across multiple editions, providing you with
