Parry’s Picks – 9th December 2018

Hello and welcome back to Parry’s Picks! Each week in this article series I take a look at what’s been published on the DMsGuild over the past 7 days and try to highlight 5 of the best ones out there! This week we’ve got a few adventures, the new instalment of the Khyber Khronicle, and something from a favourite returning creator.


Chalk Hill – Honeymoon at the Eight Maidens

R P Davis

Fancy some real traditional adventuring this week with a somewhat Rothfuss feel to it? Fancy some old fashion dungeon crawling, a classic story and a few twists along the way? Want to rip the head off a zombie or two – then this is the module for you! RP’s newest is a great homage to the OSR, and is accompanied by great artwork and even better maps by none other than Dean Spencer and Dyson Logos!


The Khyber Khronicle – Volume 4

David Morris et al.

I’m never not going to feature the Khronicle in my Picks. Although this edition doesn’t have a preview, I can assure you that it’s as good as all the others! There really isn’t a better way to keep updated your Eberron games. This edition contains 2 new adventures, an intro to Droaam, and a handful of new player options. Always worth picking up.


Trap Compendium


From the creators of the Total Party Kill Handbook comes an all new supplement which should help you create deadly traps for your home games. These traps aren’t going to be for the faint of heart, but should truly challenge players of all levels.


Trinkets 3: The Third One

Chris Bissette

Chris of Loot the Room fame is back again with his trinket supplement! If you don’t know already, Chris has put out these epic collections of trinkets on two other occasions, and they really help to bring life to your games. In addition, Chris is using the ‘goal’ system on this release, meaning it’ll continue to get better the more copies it sells!

  • At Copper bestseller status this release will be updated with 10 adventure hooks using the trinkets in the book.
  • At Silver bestseller status this release will be updated with 50 new trinkets.
  • At Electrum bestseller status we’ll commission Samantha Darcy to produce original artwork of some of your favourite trinkets.
  • At Gold bestseller status we’ll add more adventure hooks and more art.

Undermountain: The Caverns of the Many-Legged

David McDonough

Looking for some supplementary content for your Dungeon of the Mad Mage games? Look no further! This adventure details a mini-layer of Undermountain built around the drow and their arachnid kin. The production of the adventure is top notch, with great layout, artwork and maps.

Special Mention – Encounters in the Savage Wilderness – Fantasy Grounds

Rob Twohy et al.

Basically, Rob turns everything good on the guild into Fantasy Grounds compatible files to save you the trouble of doing it yourself. He’s truly doing the VTT community a massive favour by keeping up this work, and deserves all the support of the FG community! Look out for the encounters I wrote for this supplement, and let me know what you think.
