Iskandar is the homemade fantasy world of one of my favorite 5e content creators, M.T. Black. The world is smartly introduced via its biggest city, in the Iskandar City Sourcebook.

The 100+page sourcebook covers the city’s history, politics, religion, governance, and factions, as well as providing plenty of wonderful d20 and d100 tables for DMs to generate adventures and encounters. The sourcebook also includes the history of the beleaguered city, including its conquest by a neighboring empire, and invasion by demons through a nearby gateway. Yet despite hardship, the city continues to persevere. Continue reading “DriveThruRPG Review – Iskandar City Sourcebook”

Even if you’re not a Lovecraft connoisseur, you’re probably aware of the themes and tropes: entire villages of secret cultists, powerful evil that is uncaring yet dangerous, and lots and lots of body horror. And probably tentacles.

Tales from the World’s End is an encounter book featuring 16 eldritch horror-themed encounters and mini-adventures. It’s full of creepy lakes, creepy oceans, creepy forests, creepy pits, creepy villagers, and lots of suitably terrifying monsters.

Last year I was disappointed that Encounters in Icewind Dale didn’t include any specific tie-ins or content for Icewind Dale: Rime of the Frostmaiden.

My squeaky wheel has received its grease with Icewind Dale Expanded, an encounter book that features over a dozen encounters specifically designed to work around, and improve, the plot, NPCs, and locations of Rime of the Frostmaiden.

Tyranny of Dragons. Princes of the Apocalypse. Storm King’s Thunder. What if all of the 5e campaigns ended in failure? And what if Vecna was the big bad behind them all?

Rise of Vecna creates a uniquely twisted world where evil and death reign supreme up and down the Sword Coast.

But life finds a way.

Liches are normally fearsome, deadly foes, but Ezzat is disarmingly charming, which I could use to describe this entire 50-page magic item supplement. Ezzat’s Catalogue of Magical Oddities features over 80 magic items and about two dozen spells, with a heavy emphasis on humor.
