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.

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.

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.
