Gloria’s Gambit is the first (and first-level) adventure in the designer’s episodic Orbs of the Planes campaign, though can just as easily stand on its own as a classic low-level adventure featuring goblins, bandits, traps, and treasure.

I’ve recently fallen in love with Eberron’s arcanepunk, industrialized setting and pulpy adventures. Flight of the Magpiesintriguing mid-air infiltration of an airship makes for a solid introductory one-shot, or mini-adventure in a larger campaign, though it stumbles in its execution.

I’m constantly spoiled by incredibly well-produced DMs Guild products with beautiful artwork, concise editing, and professional-grade layouts. None of that is a requirement, however. 101 Useful (ish) Magical Items may lack the accoutrements of bigger products, but its genuinely clever (and sometimes silly) magic items should not be ignored.

Eberron has its own rich history filled with political intrigue, magical technology, and fantastical creatures and settings. Eberron: Rising from the Last War added a new class, the Artificer, along with three archetypes.

But the Artificer isn’t the only class in Eberron. Archetypes of Eberron adds 31 new archetypes for all 13 character classes, all inspired by, or directly drawn from the high-magic world.

Back to the Future: Dice Through Time Review

Read the full review on Pixelkin

As far as classic 80s franchises go, none may be as sacred and universally beloved as the Back to the Future trilogy. The adventurous time-traveling series remains mercifully untouched by modern adaptations, but that doesn’t mean we don’t deserve a proper modern board game – or two!

Back to the Future: Dice Through Time (not to be confused with Back to the Future: Back in Time, another cooperative BTTF board game that released this year), continues Ravensburger’s trend of turning popular film franchises into satisfying, family-friendly tabletop experiences.

I rarely go out to a seafood restaurant (wife isn’t a fan), but when I do (and there’s no pandemic), I like to order a sampler that combines several different entrees. A Manse of Special Purpose is like ordering the sampler at the D&D planar restaurant.

A nobleman researcher has bitten off more than they can chew, unleashing a multi-planar catastrophe on their mansion and all their inhabitants in this tier 3 adventure.
