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.

Improved Inspiration from FryMinis
Inspiration always sort of felt like a tacked-on rule, and most GMs I have played with simply forget to use it. Here is a noble attempt to change that with a wider variety and degree of inspiration rewards.
Assorted Jungle Encounter Maps from Scott Avery
Really nice jungle map pack; you can easily design an entire adventure around these. I like that there are variations on the same map. For example, there is a coastal map both with and without a shipwreck.
Ballyfos' Inventory of Minor Magic Items from Charmstone Games
I have mentioned before how terrible I am at making up magic items. I also really enjoy lesser items that you can toss into your game without breaking it. This is a nice collection of such items, ostensibly for sale at a little magic shop. Bonus points for the well-written flavor text for each item.
Battlemaps: Caves and Caverns from Andrew Clark
Huge pack of 25 cave and cavern maps. Includes lots of bandit hideouts, underdark flora, subterranean rivers, and the like.
