Type: Unearthed Arcana Author: Ben Petrisor, Dan Dillon, Jeremy Crawford Subtitle: Unearthed Arcana 2020 Banner: Text: Conjure forth new magic in your D&D games with the spells and tattoos introduced in today’s Unearthed Arcana. Many of the spells focus on summoning, and the tattoos allow you to ink magic onto your very skin. A survey is also available on the previous installment of Unearthed Arcana, which presented the Armorer for the artificer, the Circle of Stars for the druid, and the Fey Wanderer for the ranger. Please follow the survey link below to let us know what you think about them! This Is Playtest Content The material in Unearthed Arcana is presented for playtesting and to spark your imagination. These game mechanics are in draft form, usable in your D&D campaign but not refined by final game design. They are not officially part of the game. For these reasons, material in this column is not legal in D&D Adventurers League events.

  2. Bored? Fight Banality at home with Changeling: The Dreaming 20th Anniversary Edition, available for FREE today! Judge us not by our seemings for we are never what we appear. Come hither, changelings and join the dream-dance, lest the winter come and the Dreaming pass into memory. Recall your heritage! Let the games begin! Twenty years ago, White Wolf published Changeling: The Dreaming, the fifth of their promised five game-lines that together comprised the World of Darkness. Seen by some as a lighter, more fantasy-based setting in the modern-day, and by others as the darkest game White Wolfhad yet created, players had to face the question of what happens once creativity and magic fades from their world. This 20th Anniversary Edition of Changeling: The Dreaming returns to that deceptively bright yet terrifying world and both compiles and completes the concepts of the previous two editions. We’re dedicated to making Changeling: The Dreaming Twentieth Anniversary Edition the most playable edition yet – while not losing the wonder, awe, and majesty that Changeling is known for. A revised and up to date look at the World of Darkness through the eyes of the Kithain – what has happened to the Dreaming in the last 20 years, and what is the state of Glamour and dreams? Rules for all of the kiths including in 2nd ed, plus fan favorites from other books: selkies, piskies, clurichaun, and both Arcadian and Concordian sidhe. Rules for the Gallain: The inanimae, the hsien, the Nunnehi, and others! An overhauled and reimagined system for fae magic, including new Arts and the powerful but dangerous practice of Unleashing! New full-color beautiful artwork as well as classicChangeling illustrations including remastered full page pieces of the kiths by Tony Diterlizzi.
  3. I have a strong dislike for DriveThru RPG, but free is a good deal.
  4. The free offers keep rolling along! Today’s free PDF is Mage: The Ascension 20th Anniversary Edition. Clocking in at 696 pages, this is one of the biggest books we’ve made! To clear up some confusion we’ve seen: as the post title says, this is free today. Each offer this week is valid for one day only. I tell you this: We are Divinity. Reality is ours to bend. To subvert. To command. We have that power – all of us. Not everyone knows what to do with it, or uses it well. Most of us never realize just what it is we are or how much we can do. Those of us who do… well, some of us are monsters. Manipulators. Parasites. Tyrants. Fanatics. And the rest of us never see that monster in our own mirror, only in the reflections of those folks who are not “us.” Here’s the truth, though: We are ALL “us.” We are ALL gifted, We can ALL change the world. Most of us remain asleep. A blessed few Awaken. Fewer still use that power wisely. And none without consequences. And so, reality is up for grabs. Where do you stand? And will you Fall… or Ascend? What’s in it? Updated profiles of the Council of Nine Traditions, the Technocratic Union, and the Disparate Crafts… with many unexpected developments. An epic history of magick and its factions. A compilation and clarification of essential and optional rules, including martial arts, vehicles, hazards, cybernetics, the Otherworlds, and far more besides. Overviews of paradigms, practices and tools – the focus of your Art. Detailed explorations of the epic concepts involved in Mage. Chilling looks at the Nephandi and Marauders. The Nine Spheres, plus their Technocratic variants. Old favorites and new faces from among the Awakened Ones. Reality Zones, Paradox, Quiet, the “coincidental vs. vulgar magick” debate, and far, far more… New full-color original art by Michael William Kaluta, Echo Chernik, Steve Prescott, Christopher Shy, Larry MacDougall, and other classic Mage artists, as well as classic B&W pieces carefully chosen from the earlier editions.

Related products: D&D Starter Set Player's Handbook Dungeon Master's Guide Monster Manual Inline blocks: Stay Informed Dragon+ Author: Matthew Mercer/Wizards RPG Team Synopsis: Create your own Critical Role campaigns with this sourcebook for the world's greatest roleplaying game! Explorer’s Guide to Wildemount provides everything you need to play Dungeons & Dragons on the continent of Wildemount (set within the world of Exandria)—a land of war, betrayal, and swashbuckling adventure. Comprised of four regions, Wildemount provides endless potential for adventure in a land of brewing conflict and incredible magic. Rising tensions boil over into all-out war between the politically dubious Dwendalian Empire and the light-worshiping wastefolk of Xhorhas, supplying a vibrant backdrop for any D&D campaign to explore. Uncover a trove of new options usable in any D&D game, featuring subclasses, spells, magic items, monsters, and more, rooted in the adventures of Critical Role—such as Vestiges of Divergence and the possibility manipulating magic of dunamancy. Start a campaign in any of Wildemount’s regions using a variety of introductory adventures, dozens of regional plot seeds, and the heroic chronicle system—a way to create character backstories rooted in Wildemount. Explore every corner of Wildemount and discover mysteries revealed for the first time by Critical Role Dungeon Master, Matthew Mercer. Where can I buy it? Pre-order at your local game store, book stores such as Barnes & Noble, or online at retailers like Amazon. Also available for pre-order at D&D Beyond and Fantasy Grounds. Description: This book’s contents include the following: An expansive Wildemount gazetteer. Descriptions of the major factions of Wildemount. Player options that include new subclasses, new spells, and a tool to help players deeply integrate their characters into the setting. New magic items, including weapons that become more powerful to match their wielders. New creatures native to Wildemount. Four introductory adventures—one for each unique region of Wildemount. Largely written and helmed by Matthew Mercer, the Dungeon Master of Critical Role and creator of the world of Exandria, this 304-page book features work by talented designers, writers, and artists from the D&D and Critical Role communities. Explorer's Guide to Wildemount is an expansive, vivid campaign setting anyone can enjoy regardless of their familiarity with Critical Role, and an open invitation to make the mysteries and dangers of Wildemount your own.
