An amazing supplement offering versatile baddies for your table. The formatting of the PDF was pretty neat. The cover art is especially amazing and the art is great overall, and the lore provided is fleshed out well. The critters are fun and provide great campaign ideas. I would recommend this well put together and balanced bestiary to anyone looking to add some fantastic new monsters to their games.

Arkadia - The Greek Setting for 5e
Publisher: Arcana Games
by Sarah R. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 06/03/2019 01:49:34

This setting brings a lot of uniqueness to the table and the supplement is pretty great because it offers tons of solid worldbuilding elements. There is a lot of information on the setting and the elements of classical Greek mythology have been brought over into the framework of D&D 5E in a very creative manner, allowing other 5E sources like the Player's Handbook to work with the setting seamlessly. The unique flavourful twists on the races, the magic items, monsters and other setting-specific content are paired with some great evocative artwork to create a beautiful and informative book.

If you are looking to bring the wonder and epicness of Greek Mythology to your table, look no further!

Bright Moon Setting (5e)
Publisher: Hollow Wanderer
by Sarah R. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 01/16/2019 02:19:44

This setting brings grit and darkness to D&D, with the added mechanics and dark, sombre tone. The extra crunch adds a level of sophistication and flavor to the game and the fluff matches the feel with unique subraces, magical items and equipment. It's perfect for people who want something different from the usual D&D gameplay at their table. The layout was well-organized though I feel that the additional of more art would help in setting a better mood and evoking the right themes by kindling the imagination of the reader.

Overall, this is a good setting, which can become great with a little bit of added production values like evocative art and supporting design.

Friends and Foes II
Publisher: Dungeon Masters Guild
by Sarah R. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 12/18/2018 02:50:24

This product delivers just what it says on the cover- tons of NPCs categorized by Friends, Foes, and Monster NPCs that are easily to drop into any game, thus saving effort and time. What really sets this book apart are the exhaustive yet easy to use tables in the back that allow you to assemble single or multiple NPCs focused on whatever flavor, attributes or intent that you need.

The supplement is well laid-out, making it easy to flip through and read, and just as easy to keep behind the DMs screen to pull out a well-fleshed out NPC to keep your players guessing if they are plot-critical or not. It earns brownie points for coming in a printer-friendly version too.

Highly recommend!

L'gat's Tome of Amazing Creatures Volume 2
Publisher: Power Up Gamers
by Sarah R. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 12/07/2018 09:24:49

While the monsters and extra magic items presented in this tome have the creativity and flair of homebrewed creations, they appear well thought out and balanced for most encounters. I really enjoyed the flavor and story elements that the creatures offered. The idea of giant flying squids is definitely intriguing- now my players have a chance to be genuinely terrified! The artwork in the tome is fantastic and the stat blocks are convenient and accessible for any DM looking to throw new creatures at their players. Excited to see how these amazing creatures will play out in future games! I definitely got a lot of mileage out of the first volume and this one is even better!

Highly recommend!

Journey To Ragnarok - Adventure and Setting for 5e
Publisher: Mana Project Studio
by Sarah R. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 12/03/2018 01:18:58

As a person with Nordic roots ( Finnish ), I was happy to see that this setting delivers the actual feel of the Norse mythos, instead of the diluted pop-culture Hollywood fluff. This is obviously because of the deep research that the author has gone into for this supplement. The setting is expansive although I feel that it needs some more crunch. The adventure chapters could have used more information on how to actually run them, like for instance, the transition between one chapter and the next. A little bit of narrative between one plot point and another would have been nice, especially for newer DMs. Although, with a little effort, running this adventure in this setting can be a flavorful and unique experience at the table for players and dungeon masters alike. In other words, this setting offers a new D&D 5e experience. This setting also does a great job with things like standard statblocks ( for the Gods ) and setting-specific rules ( like the brutal sailing rules ). This setting brings out the brutality and the esoteric nature of Norse Mythology really well ( like the Draugr battle ) with good writing, great art and vivid characters.

Overall, if you want to play a Viking and travel the Nine Realms for glory and adventure, this book is your #1 choice.

Jungle Tomb of the Mummy Bride
Publisher: Planet X Games
by Sarah R. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 11/28/2018 08:35:40

This adventure is a brutal, no-holds-barred throwback to the golden age of D&D. It plays really well with an engaging plot and a gritty narrative. The production values are pretty great too - the black-and-white art sets the creepy tone of the adventure along with the various add-ons. The layout makes the module easy to read and add clarity to the experience.

If you are looking for a great oldschool adventure, look no further!

The Greasemonkey's Handbook: Rules for piloting Magitech, Steampunk and Sci Fi mechs in D&D 5th Edition
Publisher: Dungeon Masters Guild
by Sarah R. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 11/26/2018 03:17:29

A wealth of quality and rich content that can make D&D games more creative and fun with added steampunk goodness. It's very well put together and can add a lot of flavor to your campaigns, especially if they are set in Eberron or Ravnica. The crunch and fluff in this supplement go together very well - the new mechanics go hand in hand with the cool homebrew spells, subclasses, and some nifty magic items in this book. The writing is pretty good and you can tell that a lot of hard work has gone into the making of this handbook. The artwork and layout aren't too bad either.

This book has everything you need to start throwing together mechas of your own with plenty of readymade examples and gives you a ton of options for customization. Pretty great stuff!

The Priest, the Witch, and the Lost Temple: An Adventure
Publisher: Dungeon Masters Guild
by Sarah R. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 11/10/2018 08:31:01

An interesting and well written adventure which offers great balance between roleplay and combat. I ran this adventure and found that it was fun, engaging and had enough content to suit and satisfy different play and DMing styles, although I recommend that new DMs read the adventure more than twice before running it. It took two six-hour sessions for our group to complete it but the racy plot kept us hooked from start to finish. The layout and artwork breathe life into the words in this adventure.

You will not regret snagging this up.

The Dread House
Publisher: Hammerdog Games
by Sarah R. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 10/15/2018 01:37:09

I was initially curious to see how they run 3 rules systems in the book (PFRPG, CoC & 5e) and I am happy to report that this book is well thought out and well written. Options are provided to suit different tastes, party levels, session sizes and player types. I ran a 5e oneshot with it and it was so much fun. The sandbox nature of it was well received at my table and it was still easy to run, but players had a lot of agency in how they chose to tackle the problems. The adventure had a great balance between investigation and role-play, a creepy yet light hearted ambiance, and encounters that were challenging and thought provoking. The great content also comes with high quality art and maps. A print friendly version would be immensely helpful, especially since the layout is well organised.

Overall, a great supplement that's well worth the cost!

D100 Dungeon
Publisher: Martin Knight
by Sarah R. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 10/10/2018 13:39:37

Great product that isn't really hard to get into. The concept is great and it is presented in a polished format. It could be a little confusing, especially for new players, but the rules are well explained and so it flows well even though it seems like its broken into segments. The 'crunch' is great but a little more fluff like dialogues and interactions could have been added, but I get that it takes a lot of time and work to create something like this and i feel like the author has put a considerable amount of effort into this, to come up with tables, concepts, charts and variables. I feel like there is a lot of potential for this style of gameplay. The mechanics are there and is a quality product that the author has created and put out. Plus, this system potentially can be adapted for party play, with a little effort by the GM. Sure, a printable PDF would have been great, but if you are looking for a solid solo adventuring system with clear rules, exciting randomness and the ability to play whenever its convenient to you, look no further.

Date Added: 10/10/2018 05:07:04

Fantastic adventure that is well thought out and written with varied and fun encounters, a gripping story filled with mystery and intrigue and a deeply abounding sense of atmospheric dread. It's perfect for two short sessions or one long session. The artwork and layout are pretty neat - so are the battlemaps and the other cool additions like the random events table and the alternate endings.

Highly recommended for being creepy - in a good way!
