I’ve reviewed nearly 100 products on the DMs Guild, including adventures based on movies, fairy tales, and other adventures. I can honestly say I’ve never see an adventure inspired by a rock album – until now.

The band Rush was the direct inspiration for 2112, a one-shot mini-adventure based on the 1976 prog-rock album of the same name. It’s a uniquely cool concept for an outlandish one-shot, but it’s all over way too quickly.

PAX South is known for a high ratio of indie and tabletop games. Between PAX Rising (tiny indie companies), PAX Together (highlighting LGBTQ creators), and the new Latinx Lounge (featuring Latinx creators and panels), we checked out many excellent indie games to look for in 2020.

Despite the multitude of exciting and exotic demons, dragons, snake-people, and paralyzing lizard-chickens in the 5e Monster Manual, the single most useful and well-worn section is Appendix B, which lists all the mundane humanoid NPCs such as guards, bandits, and cultists.

Ceazor’s Soldiering adds over a dozen new low-level, bog-standard NPC statblocks based mostly on traditional medieval military units.  Unfortunately none of them stand out compared to what we already have in the Monster Manual.
