Xanather’s Guide to Everything is an all-encompassing supplement and compendium for both players and DMs, though geared much more towards players. Its biggest feature are new subclasses for every single class, opening a lot more variety and player builds, while also including firm rules on frequent rules questions and options, such as downtime, magic item distribution, and detailed usage for tool proficiencies.

The Roll20 bundle includes everything in the book, as well as an adaptation of an Adventurer’s League module, “Underworld Speculation,” which features the titular beholder in a really fun, unique way. Xanather’s makes for a great addition for any serious Roll20 adventuring group, though its complete lack of monster sheets, tokens, art, and maps also make it the least important.

Faeries, the fey, sidhe, whatever you call them, are an integral part of our shared human culture. The fey are a part of Dungeons & Dragons as well, though we lack an officially published Fifth Edition adventure or guidebook.

Myrddin’s Guide to Faerie” hopes to fill that vacuum with an all-encompassing supplement for both DMs and players, featuring over 40 pages of faerie lore, as well as four new player races, 14 new (or modified) subclasses, over a dozen magic items, and several legendary NPC statblocks.
