What Do I Know About Reviews? Return to the Glory (Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition)

I like orcs. I also like to challenge narratives. Not by completely denying previously established tropes, but by adding nuance and context to those tropes, and adding new aspects to what we have known before. In 5thedition I’ve played an orc wizard looking for ancient orc historical sites, an orc paladin of Baghtru, who was focused on protecting orcs rather

What Do I Know About Reviews? Fey Gifts and Bargains (Dungeon Masters Guild Product)

For whatever reason, Dungeons and Dragons hasn’t quite spent as much time developing the hierarchy and politics of the fey courts as it has spent exploring the politics of the Nine Hells, the interaction between the layers of the Abyss, or even the mercenary tendencies of Gehenna. There have been products here and there, but not with the level of

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. I will always have a special place in my heart for Undermountain, Mirt, and Durnan, because I ran a pretty extensive 2nd Edition AD&D game that was set in Waterdeep,

Anthology adventure series have become very popular for the Dungeon Masters Guild lately, and I enjoy the trend, as it often means that people will be bending their creative strengths towards a specific theme, often themes that are overlooked or locked into cliché. In addition to looking at fantasy themes with a fresh perspective, another benefit I have seen develop

Way back in ancient days, when boxed sets roamed the land, and armor class descended, I had a second edition Advanced Dungeons and Dragons game that spent a lot of time in Waterdeep, the Yawning Portal, Undermountain, as well as Skullport. I even ran a short 3.5 campaign set in Skullport, with my players all being agents of various nefarious

What Do I Know About Reviews? Legendary Bestiary, Legendary Actions for Low-Level Monsters (Dungeon Masters Guild)

For a while I have been discussing how I would love to see more alternate monsters with slightly different traits for D&D 5e, or more monsters with legendary actions. I have also mentioned how I like the idea of that one really tough, singular beast that lives in the woods, a creature that doesn’t need to be overtly supernatural to

What Do I Know About Reviews? OAR3 Expedition to the Barrier Peaks (Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition)

  If you tell me you want to address the history of roleplaying while creating a product that updates something from the past to the present, you are going to get my attention, if only to see what form that adaptation takes. Up to this point, I own all three of the Original Adventures Reincarnated (OAR) series published by Goodman
