While we get plenty of dungeons in D&D, there’s not nearly as many dragons. A PC can easily go their entire adventuring career without even seeing a dragon. In Warriors of Sehanine, a mini-adventure for levels 3-5, the players are tasked with liberating a recently attacked wood elf stronghold from a black dragon. Did I mention the wood elves are all werewolves?

Evil and monstrous player characters are often sought after, and often a headache for DMs to incorporate, even when their role-played as “one of the good ones.” Ishavar’s Guide to Curses adds several new, and most importantly well-balanced, player races, subclasses, and curses which should satisfy both sides of the table.

Between Ghosts of Saltmarsh and Call from the Deep there’s a solid amount of ship-based adventuring to be had in Fifth Edition. The Lamenting Lighthouse provides a tiny but unique dungeon setting that could make for a fun little stop during a sea voyage.

When I reviewed The Malady Codex almost exactly a year ago, I was impressed with its deadly new diseases, based on all-too-real real-world diseases. The Malady Chronicles takes these diseases a step further, featuring nine adventures based on The Malady Codex – though you don’t need the codex as all the information is included here.

The adventures learn toward shorter one-shots and each features a disease-related theme, with emphases on investigating and combating these terrible and swift plagues.

Buying and selling good and magic items is left largely up to the DM, at least until Xanathar’s Guide to Everything provided some more concrete rules and details for acquiring or crafting magic items. Auction Encounters attempts to inject a bit more interactivity into D&D Shopping Channel with skill challenges and rules for buying and selling goods at various kinds of auctions, including several sample encounters.
