Balduran's Guide to Kingdom Building
Publisher: Dungeon Masters Guild
by Hiten D. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 10/09/2019 23:17:15

If you love table-top roleplaying games, you will NOT be disappointed spending $24.99 on this! Balduran's Guide to Kingdom Building is not simply a toolset for in-world property management, but also has tons of resources for world-builders to create their own settlements (from tiny villages to bustling metropolises). There's a lot of inspiration to draw on from here if you need to whip up an original city for your next adventure, and you're unlikely to find something of this quality anywhere else.

Adam has taken a lot of bold, calculated risks in developing this, and that tangible desinger's authenticity is rare to come by. This product has great attention to detail, solid pacing of information presentation, and lots of insightful examples to keep you both informed and engaged. Don't let the price put you off...if you plan to continue playing and/or DMing any TTRPG, this book is an incredibly valuable investment for you.

The Malady Codex II: Diseases of the Mind
Publisher: Dungeon Masters Guild
by Hiten D. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 08/09/2019 23:38:38

Definitely my favorite of the Malady Codex series. Diseases of the Mind has exquisite attnetion to detail and does a decent of staying sensitive (and paying respect to) real world analogs. This is a very good tool in the hands of a socioemotionally competent Dungeon Master.

The Malady Chronicles
Publisher: Dungeon Masters Guild

Date Added: 08/09/2019 23:28:23

This is definitely a work of extreme passion and dedication. Every creator that contributed to this has given their fullest, sparing absolutely nothing. From the wonderful art to the compelling and crunchy adventures, everything about the Malady Chronicles showcases an elite standard of DMsGuild design. I personally can't wait to run Rise of the Druid's Curse for my party, who are hungry for some adventuring closer to their home base in Waterdeep :)

Marching to the peak
Publisher: Dungeon Masters Guild
by Hiten D. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 07/23/2019 09:43:10

This price an absolute steal for the quality of the adventure. Marching to the Peak is a very cool adventure that can be placed into any campaign (let's face it, all DMs benefit from a "fetch rare magic ingredient from X location"). The adventurers face a variety of compelling monsters, including mammoths, druids, yetis, and a silver dragon.

The adventure also features some nicely designed maps, which further reinforces my point above that the price is a steal. Grab it and enjoy it! As a DM, you're bound to need something like this at some point.

This is a very well thought-out supplement. The magic items and time travel DM guidance is very valuable, and everything really adds to the value of this book. After having spoken with the author, you can stay tuned for more great chronomancy content from Realmwarp Media!

Class Booklet Bundle

Very well done! This is a great supplement that I'll definitely end up using.

The only elements I'd improve would be adding some large boxes for domain-specific features, and adding text such as "if you have one" or "if applicable" to the Bag of Holding part, so that players don't automatically expect one.

This is OUTSTANDING! I'm shocked that this kind of quality adventure is available for free. There's so much a DM can mine from here! I might be a bit biased though, as I do have some planar releases on the DMsGuild coming up, so this product inspires me a lot. Thanks for this, WoTC!

Saltmarsh Encounters
Publisher: Dungeon Masters Guild

Date Added: 06/17/2019 21:56:03

Random encounters seem to be a dying breed, but I love the authors' take on the encounters here. Each event is simple, compelling, and "adeptly" merges the three pillars of the game. These aren't just an ordinary list of monsters to fight, but events with deep story and compelling random die rolls to determine outcomes. Outstanding work, you guys!

The Haunt 2
Publisher: Dungeon Masters Guild
by Hiten D. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 06/11/2019 23:15:09

Well worth the money! This adventure was a blast for my group, who really engaged with the content. The drawings are very compelling, and the boxed text is quite easy to paraphrase and customize to your player's tastes. The use of unique monsters made it even more challenging, and gave it an illusion of deadliness, even in certain trivial encounters. The Evil Doll is also very well-designed: simple attacks, low AC to avoid demoralizing players, high HP pool to off-set nukes, simple and effective legendary actions, and a diverse array of lair actions.

Some tips for DMs running this (spoilers ahead):

  • There are A LOT of rapid-fire encounters, and (as written) you may find yourself constantly rolling initiative. Perhaps take one initiative roll for the party before the session begins, in order to save time. Probably the most "annoying" part is the small corridor in the sub-basement, where approx. three encounters are expected to take place (all within a very tiny area). There isn't much guidance given on how to pace them, and if playing on a grid, you may need to just combine one or two of them together (e.g., if players pass through the Shadowfell-like passageway, the fiendish maggots can attack once some of them are through, and those who get through could be attacked by the gray ooze, and possibly the doll herself for a couple of rounds, instead of separating the encounters out).

  • Sometimes, the horror tropes might get far too obvious. Things like a baby crying and a ghastly voice asking for help is something your players are likely to see through quite easily. Think about this in advance, and re-flavor encounters to keep up a horrifying tempo for your group.

  • Bleeder nurses are NASTY (in a cool way)! Be sure to read their stat blocks very carefully before you run this.

  • The doll encounter at the end might prove too much, even for a group of level 7s. If you have a group that doesn't manage their rest-dependent resources well, they are likely to perish.

  • Lady Graycastle's stat block allows her to summon sword wraith warriors. This can get really bad for the party, especially since by the time they get to her, they have already been through two floors of the dungeon. Hold off on using this if your party is struggling, because they still have the doll to contend with.

  • (Optional) Buy Monsters of the Guild. It'll help you understand the flavor for some of these monsters a lot better. Comes in handy when the cleric and paladin constantly asking "is that undead?"

Overall: Don't think twice. Buy this, even if just to keep in handy for when you're in a bit of a creative pinch.
