Parry’s Picks – 18th November 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 couple of adventures and a few supplements, plus a great Fantasy Grounds conversion!

Enhanced Focuses

Tyson VanOverhill

This supplement already rated at 4 stars helps to bring some life into spellcasting focuses! This is something normally ignored at most D&D tables, as they essentially just let spellcasters get on with their usual duties. This supplement provides new rules for focuses that are catered to different characters and schools of magic, making for more interesting spellcasters. The alternate preview of the product shows the amazing production quality within.

Her Majesty’s Contingent

Jay Africa

Giff. They’re great and there should be more in your game. This product contains a one-shot adventure focused around a Giff mercenary company whose lair can be found on the HMS Hunger, their airship. The product contains four new statblocks for the Giff mercenaries, and advice on how to throw them into your game. Small, easily usable statblocks like this are great for DMs to throw into their games on short notice, and I’d highly recommend this one!

The Tome of Cartography

Arturo Garcia

This product helps new DMs make the best use of maps in their games. It provides guidelines on drawing dungeon, town and kingdom maps, instructions on how to make your own battlemats at home and advice to help with NPC and story creation based on the maps. I imagine this will be extremely useful for new DMs who are trying to create their own homebrew campaign settings!

The Tower Golem

Christian Eichhorn

As you all know, I have a soft spot for adventures! The Tower Golem is designed for 2nd to 4th level characters that follows on from the first adventure called The Soulmonger. You don’t need to have played the first for The Tower Golem to make sense, but there are some great recurring villains that you can keep your eyes peeled for! The layout and cartography in this product looks incredible, and the adventure already has 5 ratings putting it at 4.5 stars!

Treasures of the Underdark

Dungeon Rollers

This epic supplement contains 40 new magical trinkets from everyone’s favourite drow-infested cave system, the Underdark! These are all organised into 7 tables which should help a DM distribute them, as well as 3 extra tables which can help you create Underdark themed items on the fly! For only $2.95, that’s amazing value!

Special Mention – The Faithful of Eberron (Fantasy Grounds)

Rob Twohy

He’s back again! This time, the King of Fantasy Grounds has converted one of the Guild’s most popular titles, The Faithful of Eberron. This is definitely one to pick up for all you VTT users out there.
