Breaking up Lore Collage helps me spread the love to third-party creators a bit more. They aren’t buried, instead featured. Podcasts, mapmakers, settings creators, expansions and more — there’s so much 5e stuff out there. These are my favorite discoveries of the week.
Dark Dice inks Jeff Goldblum
Dark Dice is a long running podcast that is part actual play, part radio play. Their latest season added Jeff Goldblum. Yes, the same Goldblum you’re thinking of already. It’s a huge get for the small podcast. The coverage included Deadline, Yahoo, and Polygon.
io9 makes it seem like this pod just went from “hey maybe someday” to must listen. Goldblum embraces the game.
I guess it’s time for me to give it some time. I’ve enjoyed the radio play stylings of Godsfall, so I’m ready for more as the radio nerd I used to be.
Level Up Journeys
The latest playtest from Level Up is dedicated to the exploration pillar of play. The expansion of just journeys is enormous, and a compelling addition to any table. The stories which inspired D&D include so much detail about journeys, your game shouldn’t cut those moments down to two sentences.
Every wanderer needs a God
Deven Rue makes more than maps. She seeds stories inspired by her maps. One of those latest seeds is a Goddess of Maps. The Wandering Mistress guides those who travel for any reason. Add the Mistress to your world and you gain a deity, a guild and several boons.
Sirens: Battle of the Bards
Satine Phoenix’s latest project is an entire setting dedicated to bards. Egg Embry interviews Phoenix and creative partner Jamison Stone about Sirens: Battle of the Bards.
Combat Wheelchair pushback must stop
When Sara Thompson released a combat wheelchair to increase representation in D&D it was a great thing. Opening up the worlds of D&D and fantasy to more people is good. But then the pushback started, and then that pushback went to obscene and dangerous levels.
