In the start of March, we wrote a series of blogpost on turning Avernus into a Sandbox, by changing the structure in Chapter 3: Avernus.

There's an issue with magic weapon in 5th edition Dungeons & Dragons. It's not that they're bad or poorly designed, but simply that there's not enough of them – especially at the first tiers of play (character levels 1-10), where we have less than a handful unique uncommon and about a dozen rare magic weapons.… Continue reading New release – Nybor’s Tome of Magic weapons
