Free and Pay-What-You-Want 5e DMs Guild Highlights: Week Ending 9.14.19

Every week, talented creators upload Dungeons and Dragons 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.

Bone China Isle from Green Bird RPGs

Green Bird is one of the most consistent 3rd party publishers on the Guild. Here you have an exotic island location with NPCs, unique items, random tables, and plot hooks, all presented with the wonderful illustrations I have come to expect from Green Bird. 

Character Sheet Revamped from Taron Pounds

Just when you thought you couldn't possibly need a new character sheet, Taron Pounds comes out with this variant. Feels much less crowded than the standard sheets, and it keeps the information sorted and grouped in a very user-friendly way. Check it out and see if you agree. 

Baltezaar's Book Builder from Michael Martin

When your players wander into a dusty old library, do you struggle to come up with random book titles and details? I know I do. I'm a total blank. This is a really useful supplement that provides random tables not only for what a book is about, but also its binding, condition, and numerous other details. 

Larloch's Grimoire of Dark Secrets from Magnus GT Hamann

Wow. There is something for everybody here. 119 pages, jam-packed with archetypes, magic items, spells, new monsters, and more. Framed as "the discoveries of Larloch the Shadow King", this is one of those DMs Guild products you don't want to miss. Snag immediately. 

The Axolitl and Riverlands Encounters from MontyGlu

The Axolitl are an amphibious freshwater race. The artwork is outstanding and it is no wonder these cute little fellers get a bonus to charisma. Also includes a couple of extra creatures, the manatee and the Neontra, which are sort of like intelligent minnows. I enjoyed the somewhat whimsical tone.
