Free and Pay-What-You-Want 5e DMs Guild Highlights: Week Ending 11.30.19

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.

You can find previous posts in this series HERE.

Slash, Stab, Hack, Repeat! from Duncan Rhodes

This is a collection of additional properties for the core weapons in the PHB. For example, the Parry property allows you to use a reaction to add a +1 to your AC vs a single attack. How much you like this will really depend on your appetite for complexity, but I thought it was reasonably balanced and pretty cool. 

Character Biggies XGE and Character Passports XGE from Tabletop Unglued

I featured the PHB versions of these cool character sheet variants a couple of weeks back (HERE and HERE), and thought I would mention that there are now options for Xanathar's Guide to Everything.

Mike's Free Encounters #11-20 from Michael LaBossiere

This is the second collection from LaBossiere; download the first one HERE. These are perfect to sprinkle into sessions or use as random encounters.

Trinket Busters from Star Shine

This one gets points for originality. Basically you can use trinkets to temporarily power some weapons by placing them into a special cavity in the grip. The magical effects fade within days. I know it sounds weird, but I like temporary magical effects, so here you go.

Advent of Destruction from Alex Niswonger

I thought this was a pretty ambitious and epic adventure. The dwarven city of Markheldiim is under attack, and of course the PCs are caught up in the mess. New creatures and items, with a helpful layout for DMs. Part 1 of the "Legacy of the Song Blades" series.
