What Do I Know About First Impressions? Arcadia Issues 6 & 7 (5e OGL)

When Arcadia Issue 6 came out, I was a little busy, diving into Kingdoms and Warfare. Since I’ve been taking on a lot of longer reviews lately (several of which aren’t out yet), Arcadia Issue 7 snuck up on me. Because of this, I’m going to look at both issues in one article. Both issues adhere to the usual three-article

What Do I Know About First Impressions? The Star-Shaman’s Song of Planegea First Look

What Do I Know About First Impressions? Weird Wastelands Psion (5e OGL)

Should I launch into a history of psionics in D&D? No, there is too much, let me sum up. I largely ignored psionics in AD&D 1e, so I wasn’t really paying attention until in AD&D 2e. The first pass at dedicated psionics in 2e was The Complete Psionics Handbook, which introduced the Psion as its own core class, and introduced

Today a new Unearthed Arcana dropped for D&D 5e, and I really want to jump into this one. The theme of this one is Mages of Strixhaven, a Magic: The Gathering setting about magical colleges which is getting its own hardcover this fall. That said, my excitement over looking at this is more about what this Unearthed Arcana is doing,

What Do I Know About First Impressions? Big Bad Bundle (OGL 5e)

After I wrote my first impression of Hit Point Press’ Big Bad Booklet Patreon, they reached out to me to ask if I wanted to look at more of their offerings.

What Do I Know About First Impressions? Handimonsters Patreon (5e OGL)

When I finished my review of Beowulf: Age of Heroes, I started following Handiwork Games for any future news about their projects. In doing so, I came across their Patreon, Handimonsters. This patreon publishes multiple monthly monsters for members, so I decided to check it out. No, I’m not obsessed with D&D monsters. Why would you say that, and no,
