Free and Pay-What-You-Want 5e DMs Guild Highlights: Week Ending 2.1.20

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.

5 Goblins Paper Miniatures & Clip Art from Misosile Busher (HIZIKI)

I used to spend a small fortune on miniatures, but I have found it to be much more affordable and honestly more fun using paper minis and tokens. When you have large groups of monsters, not a lot of folks have 8 or 9 minis of the same monster type to use. Paper minis also allow for unexpected and unique artwork, such as that seen here. I love these little goblins.

The Disruptor: An Artificer Specialist from Will Brolley, Imogen Gingell, and Laura Hirsbrunner

So at the risk of dating myself, I grew up loving the old Disney movie Tron. One of the things I loved most were the light disc duels. My brother and I would simulate the combat with some frisbees. That probably had some influence on how much I enjoyed this Artificer archetype, as it utilizes "blast disks". This is an excerpt from a larger work, Archetypes of Eberron, and given the high production values and quality design seen here, I have to imagine it is well worth picking up. Free.

Outclassed: The NPC Statblock Compendium from William Rotor

This is pure gold. Just pure, unadulterated gold. This 230+ page reference work provides, in painstaking detail, hundreds of NPC statblocks for every conceivable archetype.  No longer shall you spend the time and effort to create full characters just so your party can face an enemy with class levels. Thoughtful no-frills layout and hyperlinks allow for easy use. Every DM should download this. One of the most useful supplements on the DMs Guild.

Gooseriders of Harunnk from Tyson VanOverhill

I didn't realize how much I needed this. Delve into the world of the Gooseriders, those fabled followers of the goblin god Haruunk. Become a "Goosespeaker" with a new Warlock pact, battle the terrible Dire Goose, and frighten foes with the Buffeting Honk cantrip. Absurd fun. 

5e Puzzle: The Avurian Panetarium from Stephen Bull

I have always been awful at coming up with puzzles for my games. That's why I am thankful for creators like Stephen Bull. Check out more puzzles and products from Stephen HERE
