The pond looks innocuous on the surface. We know better. Kethra and I keep our weapons close as Gillian dives into the water. The symbol was probably down there somewhere, but we were leery of the “Lord of the Pond” the stewards spoke of.

Gillian didn’t get far into the pond before a large humanoid shape arose. The fish-man spreads his arms and smiles at us.

“Hello! You are my servants, yes? My new servants, I knew you’d be here soon!”

Mythic Odysseys of Theros brought the Greek Mythology-inspired world from Magic: The Gathering into Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition. Between that and games like Immortals Fenyx Rising, Hades, and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, we’ve been awash with that classic era that’s so rife with adventure.

Gorgons & Oracles adds 12 new subclasses, one for each class, inspired by Ancient Greece.

Presentation isn’t everything, but it can be the difference between a good DMs Guild product and a great one. On the other end, a poorly edited product can drag an otherwise solid mystery adventure into mediocrity, as is this case with Of Slavers and Sahuagina mini-adventure for levels 3-5.

Not every adventure needs to be a complex, interwoven story of mystery and drama. Sometimes you’re hired to get a thing, rescue a person, or defeat a monster – and return for that sweet reward. The Skull of Drag’Nalar is a relatively straightforward, but also well-designed, drop-in adventure for level 4 parties.

An item-based class with six merchant guild subclasses.

I’ve played my share of RPGs and tactics games that include some kind of item-based class. I never though it would work with D&D 5e, but Merchant Class  provides a well thought-out and fun signature class ability, along with six merchant guild subclasses to further define your gold-hungry character.

Pain courses through my body, the demon’s cursed bolt still protruding from my chest. I can do nothing but convulse, and watch as the rest of my party strides forth to deal with the ambushing demons.

Steel. Spells. Explosions. Fire. I hear cries of pain and feel heat, but my body does not respond. 

Scarlet forcibly drags me toward the hulking demons. She wants to attack our enemy while keeping me close within her holy aura.

It’s a solid plan, but too late do I realize the mistake. My eyes begin to water as she plunges Tellurai into the nearest beast. It grunts, then begins to laugh.

“For Irathon!”

I know that laugh. I’ve seen these creatures before. It clutches a device on its chest that begins to beep, rapidly, then explodes.

Fun fact: druids and other nature-themed classes are among my favorites in RPGs. Animal pets, shapeshifting – what’s not to love? Way of the Druid is a hefty supplement that focuses entirely on the druid class in D&D 5e, including five new subclasses.
