What DO I Know About Reviews? Arcadia (MCDM 5e Third Party Magazine)

I love magazine content to fuel my RPG obsession. Unfortunately, there isn’t much out there these days since Dungeon Magazine and Dragon Magazine were shuttered. I subscribed to D&D Insider, so I read many issues of the 4e version of Dragon Magazine, but that content always felt, I don’t know . . . safe? I enjoy Dragon+, but it also

What Do I Know About Reviews? Encounters with the Dark Powers (Dungeon Masters Guild Product)

There is a category of RPG product that I think has really flourished in the Dungeons & Dragons 5e era. That’s not to say this category didn’t exist previous to 5e. I know, for example, Legendary Games started off by providing supplementary campaign products to Pathfinder adventure paths, but the campaign supplemental product is well represented on the Dungeon Masters

What Do I Know About Reviews? My Dad’s Monster Manual (Dungeon Masters Guild Product)

The product we’re looking at today has a pretty unique origin. James Introcaso decided to show the illustration of monsters from the D&D 5e Monster Manual to his father, and ask him the following questions: What is this creature’s name? What can this creature do? What is this creature’s story? From those questions, James and Lucian Introcaso and Hannah Rose

What Do I Know About Reviews? The Creed of Auril (Dungeon Masters Guild Product)

Icewind Dale has a special place in my heart, as much because of the CRPGs as any inclusions in novels or stories set in the Forgotten Realms. I love cold, wintery settings, and I love the isolated, “starting over” feeling of the setting. Because of this, Icewind Dale: Rime of the Frostmaiden definitely snagged my attention, and supplemental material is

What Do I KNow About Reviews? Eberron Confidential (Dungeon Masters Guide Product)

I love how story hooks can flesh out the feel of a setting. You can state a ton of facts in a campaign setting book, but those facts don’t feel alive, they don’t feel real, until they have some inertial behind them. How those hooks are presented can vary. In Baldur’s Gate: Descent into Avernus and Icewind Dale: Rime of

What Do I Know About Reviews? Darkhold: Secrets of the Zhentarim (Dungeon Masters Guild Product)

When finishing up my read through of Elminster’s Candlekeep Compendium, I just happened to see another product that piqued my interest almost as much. That product has many of the same contributors, this one being Darkhold: Secrets of the Zhentarim. Going way back to some of my earliest Forgotten Realms memories, I’ve loved Manshoon as a villain. I’m not sure

What Do I Know About Reviews? Elminster’s Candlekeep Compendium (Dungeon Masters Guild)

Anyone that has followed me for a while knows that certain aspects of the Forgotten Realms setting inspire a deep, nostalgic love within me. It’s not an exaggeration to say that Candlekeep is definitely one of those elements of the setting that remains dear to me. I love the concept of this wild mish mash of knowledge from all over

What Do I Know About First Impressions? Way of the Cobalt Soul and Oath of the Open Sea (Critical RoLe/D&D Beyond)

Recently two subclasses appeared on D&D Beyond, The Way of the Cobalt Soul for the Monk, and the Oath of the Open Sea for the Paladin. Both subclasses are connected to Critical Role, based on mechanics that Matthew Mercer has been tinkering with in the campaign, with two of his players. Unlike the Bloodhunter, an entire class which debuted in
