I never imagined I would care about a Clown-based player race and their intricate culture. “The Book of House” devotes over 20 of its nearly 100 pages to dive deeply into the new Clonn race, treating this goofy idea with a serious attention to detail that I found delightful and fascinating.

“The Book of House” also contains three other player races, five new subclasses, new were-forms and rules, along with several new spells, feats, backgrounds, and magical items, creating an impressive all-in-one supplemental D&D tome. Best of all, all the races and subclasses can be purchased separately a la carte at the DMs Guild.

30 Games We Want to See on the Sega Genesis Mini [Pixelkin]

Read the full list article on Pixelkin

The Sega Genesis Mini is coming this Fall, and includes a digital library of 40 classic Genesis games. But the initial reveal included only 10 of the 40 games.

As we’ve done with the SNES and PlayStation mini retro consoles, we’ve compiled a list of games we’d like to see fill out the library. We have a lot of confidence on most of this list, as Sega has released previous compilation packs of Genesis games as recently as last December on the Nintendo Switch.

In the main temple chamber of Orolunga they found the oracle, a guardian naga. The naga had been attacked and captured by the newly arrived yuan-ti. It was up to our heroes to defeat the snake-folk, rescue the oracle, and get some much-needed answers.

NOTE: My version of Orolunga is partially based on the Viper’s Pit dungeon designed by JVC Parry on the DMs Guild.

Books are often a source of mystery and intrigue, particularly in fantasy worlds full of arcane spellbooks and infernal rituals. “Books & Libraries” goes far beyond filling out a few sample lore books and spellbooks, however, creating a huge variety of scholarly loot, devious traps, and even extradimensional history books.
