Free and Pay-What-You-Want 5e DMs Guild Highlights: Week Ending 1.24.21

 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.

I will keep proclaiming the greatness of the Green Bird team from every mountaintop, hill, and dale until the world listens. Great table to add flavor and unpredictability to your underground adventures.

Camp Deep Lake from Samantha Conklin

This is perfect one-shot material. The PCs are camp counselors attempting to solve the murder of the camp director. Good adventures start with good hooks, and as a huge fan of 80s horror, this immediately appealed to me. Has a really good twist. I would actually really love to run this.

Fantasy Battlemaps from Adela Quiles

MORE MAPS! MORRRRE MAPS!!!! I don't have a problem. I can stop any time I want. 

Aside from being a nice little sidequest for Rime of the Frostmaiden, this is a tour de force in great layout. There is an astonishing amount of content jammed into fifteen pages, with no filler. Even has a helpful flowchart. Bynoe knows what they are doing.

Mike's Free Encounter Collection #7 from Michael LaBossiere

One of the most prolific designers on the Guild, LaBossiere has been pumping out free encounters for years now. In this, the seventh collection, you get more handy encounters to sprinkle into your sessions, along with a zip file of maps for VTT play.
