Goblin Scrawl Games released The Horned Emperor, a 5e adventure for a party of 4th to 6th level characters. The minotaur king of a long-dead goblinoid empire was sealed in his timb to prevent him from reigning from beyond the grave before being lost to time…until now. The bundle also comes with complete stat blocks for all monsters to cut down on cross-referencing and a VTT-ready map.

You know I love my random table products for their use in brainstorming and quick prep, and Christian Blair has a great one with D100 Desert Encounters & Events. The collection of 100 events vary in complexity and challenge with both combat encounters and random events to use for possible adventure hooks.

Keeping track of consumable items can sometimes be a pain, but Flash Hammer Creative Studios has a solution with the Alchemist Shop – Player Set. This set of ready-to-print cards can be cut out and used to keep track of who has what potion when along with a generic-rules description of their effects (though it may require some adapting for your fantasy RPG system of choice).

Over on DMs Guild, Lucas Romo released Classic Spelljammer Ships which updates over 100 ships from the classic setting for use in 5e. Currently the PDF only includes the stats and weapons for each ship and requires the classic Spelljammer supplements for the descriptions, though the author states they may update the product with the descriptions in the future.
  • Price: Pay What You Want (Suggested: $4.00)

I don’t know why, but for some reason creators on Dungeonmasters Guild seem to run in tends with a lot of related content popping up at the same time. This week, we got a ton of new classes and subclasses from a wide variety of creators. All these titles are Pay What You Want with the suggest price listed at the end.

Just so you know, the "Classic Spelljammer Ships" link is still wrong up the page. It goes to a Warlock Patron.

Also, thanks for providing all of us the info you put together every week. I always look forward to it and am grateful for your efforts.

That M&M bundle has a number of books never offered in PDF form, going to have to get that.
 



Good bundle on PbtA titles just announced:
