Malar: The Beastlord Compendium
Publisher: Dungeon Masters Guild
by Patrick H. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 12/12/2019 09:26:54

The upside to this resource is that it most likely has everything you’d need to give Malar a lot of significance in your campaign, for PCs and NPCs alike. The downside, if you want to think of it that way, is that it’s got a very specific target audience: people who want more Malar. I believe it is for that reason that this product is currently only a Copper Best Seller and not Platinum or better. It’s niche within a niche. Nonetheless, it is a great resource and I hope it inspires other similar works. Chapters 1 through 5 are exhaustive. But this is a case where it needs to be. Otherwise all we have is another character options type of product. The context is everything.

NOTE: This product was a copper best seller at the time the review was written. It has since achieved Silver status.

Blood War Bestiary
Publisher: Dungeon Masters Guild
by Patrick H. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 12/10/2019 09:49:05

For me, the best supplements are the straight-forward ones that you can sit down and use immediately. No preparation required. This is one such supplement. You can read it ahead of time if you want. It’s actually not a bad idea so you can plan encounters accordingly. But if your players happen to already be chumming around in Hell or the Abyss, then this bestiary can also help you with some ad hoc encounters as with Stygian Dragons or Avernian Leeches. Simply put, it’s teeming with thematic monsters who may or may not be directly involved in the Blood War. Regardless of their loyalties and devotion, these monsters can either help or hinder the PCs’ progress depending on what kinds of unlikely alliances the players are receptive to.

Eberron Random Events: Sharn and the Five Nations
Publisher: Dungeon Masters Guild
by Patrick H. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 12/05/2019 08:15:23

I loved the Wanted Scores. PCs build reputations. If those reputations aren’t favorable, there are consequences. This is no different than in real life. If a PC (or NPC) becomes too egregious then they start attracting a lot of attention. A Troublemaker is at the low end of the spectrum and is likely to face little more than harassment here and there. But at the opposite extreme is an Enemy of the State. Good luck to anyone who achieves such infamy.

Arkadia - The Greek Setting for 5e
Publisher: Arcana Games
by Patrick H. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 12/03/2019 08:09:54

There was a lot of potential for a great product here. But the execution fell short of that greatness. The art is wonderful. The concepts are great. But this is a supplement that doesn’t save the DM work. As a matter of fact, the DM looking to start a Greek setting will find lots of work still left to do if they want to do it in Arkadia.

The Wizard's Egg - 5E High Magic One-shot
Publisher: Shadows of Pindus
by Patrick H. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 11/28/2019 19:12:34

This is a well-written heist-style adventure. The amount of information in the adventure is a bit much for a one-shot but if you already have an arcanepunk setting (or perhaps if you play in Eberron) you can just adapt this adventure to that setting quickly and have fun.

Secrets of the Blind Palace
Publisher: Dungeon Masters Guild
by Patrick H. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 11/26/2019 08:04:44

The compelling ending will leave your players in a moral quandary. And no matter what they decide, there may be repercussions. At your discretion, of course. Blind Palace is a great adventure in the horror genre without falling into gore fest tropes. It’s not going to cause nightmares, but it is nonetheless chilling and haunting. Most importantly, it’s an adventure you’ll love running as much as your players will love playing it.

Gloria's Gambit
Publisher: Dungeon Masters Guild
by Patrick H. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 11/21/2019 21:53:24

This would have been better suited to a higher level adventure and longer lasting implications. Otherwise, it's a fun side-trek where low level players get to go kill some goblins and, hopefully, claim some nice treasure.

Esquiel's Guide to Magic Weapons
Publisher: Dungeon Masters Guild
by Patrick H. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 11/19/2019 10:12:13

This is a great product. The new weapons/armor are perfect MacGuffins or rewards for your players. But, as another reviewer stated, the real star of the product is the generator. In a matter of seconds I created a magic item that started my gears moving towards a simple side-quest. I decided I didn't like the item as a sickle and instead switched it to a mace. The Mace of the Forest Queen is prized by nature domain clerics...

It's a professional looking product that is both convenient and versatile. As a DM, it will simplify your life and inspire you too.

Villains & Lairs
Publisher: Dungeon Masters Guild
by Patrick H. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 11/07/2019 13:23:51

Do you know how a good chef can glance into a pantry, take stock of the items on hand, and then come up with a great meal from what he saw? That’s essentially what Villains & Lairs is. Jeff C. Stevens was looking for stock art for other adventures and nothing he found matched his needs. So he commissioned art for those but hated to let the inspiring stock art he found go to waste. So he sent out a request to several creators to create personalities around those images. This supplement is the product of that collaboration. These “chefs” converged upon a single feast and we get to enjoy a smorgasbord.

D&D Solo Adventure: Labyrinth of Lies
Publisher: Dungeon Masters Guild
by Patrick H. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 11/06/2019 06:24:34

Just be prepared to die. Bring your 5th level character and a backup. You might consider a caster. But then again, you may want a character with a lot of hit points and some healing potions. Actually, dexterity and perception may be the most important things to bring to this adventure. Unfortunately, there isn’t a lot of room for roleplaying in this adventure. That’s kind of the nature of solo adventures but even still, this one has less of it than I remember some of Paul’s other works having. Nonetheless, it’s a good escape when you don’t have a chance to coordinate with friends’ schedules…exactly what the adventure is intended for. Short, sweet, and dangerous.

Attack on Avernus: The Wrath of Tiamat!
Publisher: Dungeon Masters Guild
by Patrick H. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 11/02/2019 11:51:09

Attack on Avernus is a great test of your players’ skills and tactics. Because that’s what it will take for them to survive. It’s an adventure that plays well as a standalone, a sequel to Tyranny of Dragons or Baldur’s Gate: Descent Into Avernus, or to slide it into your pre-existing campaign. You can run it in infernal mode for an extra tough challenge for your players or you can scale back the difficulty easily.

These creeators are clearly steeped in Irish/Celtic lore. This product is great for fey settings/influence but also for Arthurian-esque campaigns. My only suggestion for improvement, and it's minor, is for an expanded pronunciation guide.

Warriors of Sehanine
Publisher: Dungeon Masters Guild
by Patrick H. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 10/17/2019 11:34:55

I get that many people shy away from pre-written adventures because they’re either too linear or otherwise inappropriate for the DM’s particular setting. Kick that notion to the curb with Warriors of Sehanine. There is so much rich background with this adventure that you, the DM, won’t be stuck when your players inevitably lead things off the rails. You will have enough to answer unexpected questions, allow the players to go completely sideways, revisit as a sequel of sorts, or even replay it with the same people running different characters.

Cawood has competently created a wonderful set of useful tables which are nicely complemented by the usage of NPC guardians for available treasure. Where the creator succeeds is in creating a tool for DMs that saves time and inspires creativity.

Hamund's Harvesting Handbook: Volume 2
Publisher: Dungeon Masters Guild
by Patrick H. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 09/26/2019 11:39:36

For some, there is a strong morality in not letting anything go to waste. Ignoring the fact that what we don’t use from the carcasses goes to feed scavengers (gelatinous cubes gotta eat too!), insects, fungi, and bacteria, I contend we do have a responsibility to be good stewards. It’s irresponsible to not harvest these parts and put them to good use if we can. If someone were to slay me in battle I would hope they’d consider my femur for a good sword handle. If they wore my face like a mask…might be weird, but okay.

You'll have a blast with this Handbook! Just as enjoyable as the first but different enough (thanks to using Volo's monsters) to merit being a second edition.
