Free and Pay-What-You-Want 5e DMs Guild Highlights: Week Ending 4.20.19

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.

Encounters in the Mournland from Gregory Hallenbeck

Ok, this is great. Here you have a bunch of random encounters for the Mournland of Eberron, fleshed out just enough for the DM to use them effectively on the fly. Also contains some really cool random weather elements and a generator for weird effects on creatures due to the Mourning.

Faerun Printable Calendar from Anthony Green

Full color and print-friendly calendars for your Forgotten Realms game. A simple but helpful tool.

Skeleton Monster Set from Hero Sleister

No-frills yet useful set of 7 skeleton variants. Why just use a bunch of plain ol' skeletons when you can throw some skeleton hellhounds and corrosive skeletons into the mix?

The Tome of Forgotten Heroes from Ocean Martinez

27 new archetypes for all core classes. Lots of cool and unusual class variants, like the Circle of the Metamorph, where the Druid only partially changes shape, and the Oath of Incandescence, which allows you to create a pyromancer Paladin. 

100 Items for Sale in a Fantasy Black Market from Casey Willis

Credited to the creative folks over at, this is a collection of items you likely won't be finding for sale at a corner store. Very inventive stuff here; these could be used to generate side quests, supplement treasure hordes, or you know, curse your players for kicks.
