On a very special episode of Tomb of Annihilation – we temporarily handed over the Dungeon Master’s seat to my wife, Heather, AKA Khaless, AKA Bryseis, AKA Miri. Long time player, first time DM!

I got to embody an NPC as a player, and Raymond’s wife Oanh joined us for another guest star to bring our player count up to four.

We still had a reduced player count but didn’t want to skip another week. A one-off episode was a solid solution. Instead of putting together a side adventure with all new characters, however, she had the smart idea to use our current crew in a fun little magical side trek while they slept on the Brazen Pegasus heading toward Shilku Bay.

And I do mean little – enter A Quest for Cheese!

Roll20 Review – Acquisitions Incorporated

Move over, Phandelver, The Orrery of the Wanderer is my new favorite 5E Adventure.

A review copy of the module was provided. Read more Roll20 Reviews and watch the video reviews on my YouTube channel.

I’m a fan of Acquisitions Incorporated, ever since I listened to their first adventures in Dungeons & Dragons Fourth Edition. Their fun-loving antics didn’t immediately draw me into D&D, but their continued adventures was a major factor into eventually running a permanent, ongoing series of live-streamed adventures with my friends.

I’m predisposed to liking anything with their involvement, so you may want to take this review with a grain of salt. That being said, the adventure included in the Acquisitions Incorporated Roll20 module, “The Orrery of the Wanderer,” is the best I’ve seen out of D&D Fifth Edition, finally supplanting Lost Mine of Phandelver as the premiere low-level campaign.

MAJOR SPOILERS – DM’s only!

DMs Guild Review – 52 New Class Options

Dozens of new subclasses for every class in Dungeons & Dragons.

A review copy of “52 New Class Options” was provided by the publisher. Find more DMs Guild Reviews on my website and YouTube channel.

Between the Player’s Handbook and Xanather’s Guide to Everything, most classes in Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition have five or six different options for subclass archetypes. But players are always wanting more. “52 New Class Options” offers way more than anyone would ever need. Not everything works well and there are more than a few eyebrow-raising abilities, but with dozens of options you’ll definitely find something to like for each class.

Note: The Typhoon Palace is not originally from Tomb of Annihilation. It appears in the Torte Package by Wizards of the Coast. I’ve adapted it to our campaign.

The latter half of the Typhoon Palace was more linear, but featured a great balance of combat, environmental hazards, and big story moments.
