If you’ve read or watched my review of last year’s Waterdeep: Dragon Heist, you know that one of my complaints was there was no actual bloody heist in the campaign! DMs Guild veteran Christian Eichhorn has designed a series of heists that take place around Waterdeep to help fill this void.

The first in the Waterdeep Shadow Heist series is “The Great Wyrm Theft,” set at a noble’s mansion during a big dinner party. The PCs’ goal is to sneak in, grab a valuable gem and sneak out, before the gem is sold at the end of the evening. It’s a neat setup, though the mansion itself is disappointingly mundane.

Khaless, level 5 Half-Drow Assassin Rogue

Therin, level 5 Hill Dwarf Druid of the Moon

Thanks to the party’s jungle crawling experience, extensive use of guides, and Gillian’s magical hut, hex-crawling is mostly a thing of the past. That doesn’t mean we won’t have any more random encounters, however.

Ah, fighters. Stalwart protectors. Can tank and dish out the damage and are BORING AS HELL. Sorry fighter fans. They even got shafted when it came to 5E subclasses, with Battle Master being the only real option (prove me wrong).

Psyborg: Fighter Subclass” adds a crazy big new subclass for my poor fighter friends, one which instantly makes me sit up and take notice. You may be worried about adding cybernetic – sorry, “psybernetic” -enhancements to your player characters, but the designer smartly uses spells and spell-like abilities featured in other classes to make the Psyborg much more balanced, at the cost of making it a bit less original.

Secrets of the Blind Palace” is a haunted mansion dungeon adventure designed for 3rd level. It’s by the same designer as “Attack on Coppercoil,” and features an even more intricately detailed dungeon with suitably spooky encounters, a cleverly interwoven investigation, and a meaningful series of choices at the end.

Therin, level 4 Hill Dwarf Druid of the Moon

The party wanted to tackle one more thing before leaving the ancient yuan-ti temple of Orolunga. A wyvern had taken up residence along the south side of the upper level, terrorizing anyone who got close. It had also amassed a sizable treasure pile, which no self-respecting adventurer could leave behind.

NOTE: My version of Orolunga is partially based on the Viper’s Pit dungeon designed by JVC Parry on the DMs Guild. I replaced the hydra with a wyvern.
