Free and PWYW 5e DMs Guild Highlights: Week Ending 3.23.19

Every week, talented creators upload products to the DMs Guild, pricing them as free or pay-what-you-want in order to reach customers. Dozens of new free and pwyw products are added each week alone. It is a lot to sort through. My hope is that highlighting a few of each week's best supplements will help the designers get the attention they deserve. You can find previous posts in this series HERE.

The Beast of Benson Manor from Pie Rat Press

I really enjoy "haunted house" sorts of D&D adventures, so maybe I am biased, but I loved the dark fairy tale feel of this one.

Trinkets of the Blood War from Bendjinn Games and Art of Karthik

Well, THIS isn't your everyday d100 trinket list! Grim and flavorful detritus from the endless war between demons and devils. A lot of these could practically be campaign starters.

The Fungus Garden - An Undermountain Encounter from Green Bird RPGs

Short but sweet fungal cavern location/encounter that you can plug in to your Mad Mage campaign. I especially wanted to mention the artwork and map. So good. Reminiscent of a cool children's book.

Shopkeeper NPCs from Dungeons and Djinn

Handy collection of brief descriptions of various shopkeepers. A time saver if you aren't feeling very creative.

Squall Shaping Wizard Tradition from Brandon Laing

I really liked the flavor of this wizard tradition, and it should fit in just fine with the upcoming Saltmarsh book. You can do cool things like summon sea creatures and use an improved "shape water" cantrip. Also makes fun suggestions, like having a parrot or monkey familiar.
