Potions are usually little more than an afterthought in magic item supplements. A few sentences, pick a buff spell, and boom there’s a D&D 5e potion! Not so with Potions Unlocked, which treats each of its intricately detailed potions with as much loving care and attention as the alchemists who make them.

Is it awkward that my first review of 2022 is also one of the best products I’ve reviewed on the DMs Guild?

Dread Metrol is an awesome crossover between Eberron and Ravenloft, shunting a ruined city in the Mournlands into its own demiplane where an authoritarian Queen rules over an increasingly desperation populace, besieged every night by a never-ending army of undead.

In each of the divided realms of Prismeer, the Feywild domain that’s featured in The Wild Beyond the Witchlight, there lies an awesome mega-dungeon ruled by a hag. Unfortunately the rest of the notable locations that reside in each realm aren’t given the same love and attention. The Hither Adventure Bundle rectifies this, at least for the domain of Hither, expanding on two of the locations and adding an all-new third one to the swampy fey realm.
