Owlbears are one of the most iconic creatures in D&D. Kinda silly, kinda fluffy, and often ferocious. Who hasn’t looked at an owlbear and wanted an awesome pet? Better yet, what if you could just be an owlbear?

The Dark Tide of Damodan is an aquatic-themed adventure for level 5-8, with a dungeon crawl in a partially sunken keep. It checks all the boxes for combat, role-playing, and exploration, though the dungeon crawl is a bit too by-the-numbers.

If you put a boardsword to my neck and forced me to name the different outer planes of the D&D universe, I’d be headless after about three.

I knew nothing about Acheron going into Ulraunt’s Guide to the Planes: Acheron, a gargantuan 300-page sourcebook. But now I can tell you that it resides between Mechanus and the Nine Hells, a world of giant rotating metal cubes where orcs and goblins wage endless war, and the perfect setting for an epic, high level campaign.

Most undead encounters in DnD use classic zombies, skeletons and ghouls. Incorporeal (ghost-like) undead are much more rare, and tend to have more exotic abilities, like the Ghost’s possession ability.

Restless: A Guide to Laying Incorporeal Undead to Rest focuses solely on this subgroup of undead monsters, but falls short of the comprehensive supplement I was hoping for.

Trap-filled mega dungeons were all the rage in older editions of DnD, from the Tomb of Horrors to the Temple of Elemental Evil. Most recently we have the Tomb of the Nine Gods from Tomb of Annihilation, and all twenty levels of Undermountain from Dungeon of the Mad Mage.

The Great Trial attempts to create another classic mega-dungeon filled with pit traps, illusions, monsters, and an entire jungle for level seven parties.

The Day the Sky Shattered is a single dungeon lair adventure designed for fourth level parties. What begins as a routine hunt for a kobold lair reveals a much larger, more ancient Netherese crypt with automated defenses, a thrilling escape, and a gauntlet of traps and clues that would make even Indiana Jones blanch.
