Free and Pay-What-You-Want 5e DMs Guild Highlights: Three Weeks Ending 1.4.20

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.

Happy New Year! I am glad to be back sharing some cool stuff from the DMs Guild. This installment includes picks released over the last few weeks. 

Mike's Free Maps Collection #8 from Michael LaBossiere

LaBossiere again blesses DMs with a free map pack. This one includes ruined towers, bridges, interiors, and more. The pdf also helpfully contains individual links to Michael's considerable catalog of free material here on the Guild.

Hex Dice Vaults from Tabletop Unglued

The latest papercraft creation from Tabletop Unglued allows you to create cool little hex-shaped boxes for your dice. I love these.

Roguish Archetype: The Minstrel from Griffin Porche

This is a perfect example of why I do this series. With the weekly avalanche of products being uploaded to the Guild, it is hard to imagine that many folks noticed this cool rogue archetype, but I think it is great. If you don't want to play a magical bard, but want to add some bardish panache and flavor to your rogue, check this out.

The Murkwater Maniac from Nico Scarpi

Excellent little adventure in which the PCs must track down a psychopathic killer during a city festival. Great layout and maps. 

Hagspawn: A Half-Hag Race from Ted Chieffe

Now this would be fun to roleplay! Fight against your nature (or not) as a misunderstood teenage hagspawn. Chieffe is making a name for themselves with a run of creative supplements on the Guild.

Simple Mass Combat from Christopher Heatherington

While I would never classify this as "simple", this is still a very inventive and original take on mass combat. If you don't want to go the traditional wargame route with your large scale battles, check this one out.

A Feast for the Forest from Eric Milton

This is a nice low-level sidequest sort of adventure to sprinkle into your campaign if the PCs are travelling thought a forest. Highlighted by its very helpful layout.
