Free and PWYW 5e DMs Guild Highlights: Week Ending 4.6.19

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 Grand Library from Star Shine

Ok, I am pretty good at coming up with NPC names. Taverns? Sure, I'm serviceable. But let me get my players into a library or study full of books and my mind goes blank. If you are like me, you are going to love this supplement. This is more than just a list of book names. Everything from cookbooks to instruction manuals are detailed. It even assigns rarity! Definitely one for the ol' DM kit.

Antonia Lupri's Ravenloft Cookbook from Mistfactor Press, Libedrator Earl, and Anne Gregersen

Speaking of cookbooks, here we have a unique supplement detailing a Ravenloft NPC with a penchant for odd recipes. Black Pudding Pudding, anyone? Or would you prefer the Honey Glazed Stirge Wings? Includes side quests, maps of her tavern, and a handout.

Bowl of Sin: Hope from Taylor Seely-Wright

Ultra-bleak "brutal boss rush adventure" set in a dormant volcano. Bring an extra PC.

Archetypes for Weirdos: 36 Homebrew Subclasses from Jordan Allen

Idiosyncratic collection of borderline-gonzo archetypes for all core classes. Play a druid from the Circle of the Cactus, swear by the Oath of the Bartender, or make a grim living as a Black Market Surgeon rogue. The cartoonish artwork adds to the unusual feel of this one.
