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.

If the Ranger is the martial version of a Druid, and the Paladin the martial version of a Cleric, then The Scion is the martial version of a Warlock. The martial-spellcasting hybrid includes full level 1-20 progression, four subclasses, and three new backgrounds.

One of the more challenging scenarios for a game master to concoct is the initial meeting of the player characters. To help avoid the “you all meet in a tavern” trope, the Academy of Adventure drops level one PCs in an adventuring school for young adults.

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.

Harry Potter popularized the magic school trope, but just about every fantasy world has at least one school of magic, and Strixhaven could very well be yours. Adapted from a recent Magic: The Gathering set, Strixhaven: A Curriculum of Chaos is the rare setting book that includes a fully featured, levels 1-10 campaign adventure.

In my Roll20 Review of The Wild Beyond the Witchlight, I was very impressed with the campaign’s opening chapter, calling it “one of the best level one areas that 5e has produced.” Witchlight Carnival Expanded is an unofficial, but very impressive, expansion to that specific chapter, expanding and adding new attractions, events, backgrounds, and rollable tables.

The first volume of Through the Veil was a superb anthology of Fey-themed adventures (and one of my top ten DMs Guild products of last year). The follow-up, Through the Veil: Treasures of the Feywild, isn’t an adventure at all, but a massive collection of Fey-themed magic items – which is arguably more useful for many DMs. Like its predecessor, it’s also one of the most impressive DMs Guild products of the year.
