Druids can wildshape into owlbears. There. Can we stop talking about this now please? DM Sarah (the host of the Level Up: Advanced 5e live stream The Star-Crossed Seaway) with her player Lars Torgensen released the Druid subclass Circle of the Monster on DMs Guild that lets druids wildshape into a collection of monstrous creatures.

Orthrix released Interview with a Mage, a duet-play adventure for a lower-level character with adjustments for mid-level. The module is designed around 4-5 short sessions of 1-2 hours each as the player applies for a job as the assistant to a powerful wizard who has an…interesting (read: deadly) approach to the job interview process.

As I mentioned the last two weeks in the News Digest column, Modiphius released a System Reference Document for the 2d20 System and has now made it available on DriveThruRPG. While this is not Open Gaming Content, it does give you a bare-bones version of the 2d20 System rules that powers most of Modiphius’s releases including Star Trek Adventures, Fallout, Conan, and many others.

Lucky Rat Press has the wild west setting Gallants & Gunslingers for use with any B/X-derived OSR game system. The setting comes with five new western-themed classes, a spellcasting system based on a poker deck, dueling rules, and of course rules and stats for firearms.
  • Price: Pay What you Want (Suggested: $0.00)

I always love a good GM quick reference resource, and the Space Sci-Fi Quick Plots and Villains from Raymond Towers looks to be a great tool for quickly coming up with plots and NPCs when the players go off the planned adventure.

Ulisses Spiele put together a Torg Eternity collector’s dream with not one, not two, not three, but seven themed bundles. The Core Bundle features all the rules and decks you need to play plus several useful accessories and sourcebooks, which each of the other themed bundles feature setting books, adventures, maps, decks, soundtracks, and more. Note: I am having trouble personally loading the Torg Eternity Core Bundle page on multiple browsers so it’s only listing seven titles, but more may be included in the bundle.

Unpaid Scientific Adviser (Ret.)
Generally, I support Humble Bundles. I'm not supporting the Modiphius Star Trek one, however, as they employed Gareth Skarka to write some of the material. While I wasn't a backer, Gareth has been promising fulfillment of his Kickstarter project "Far West" for over 11 years. He's found time to write loads of materials for other companies, but has basically fulfilled nothing on his own, and probably doesn't even have the KS funds to publish when and if it is ever ready.

By all means, if you want the material cheap, go for it. I don't need it, nor from what I've seen, do I really want it, to be honest.
But in general, I believe you shouldn't support businesses that hire what would be considered a 'criminal' to do work for them.
