Doctor Who Series 11, Episode 3: Rosa Review.

As I've mentioned before on this blog, I have a massive issue with the past few series of Doctor Who and I will probably ramble on about it to anyone who would care to listen.

The supplements for D&D 5e have been, from my perspective, a rather mixed bag. On the one hand, the first supplement was Volo's Guide to Monsters, a delightful book that expanded upon the Monster Manual's initial offerings and divulged some interesting lore about the monsters in interesting and engaging chunks, heavily featuring new player races … Continue reading D&D 5e: Mordenkainen’s Tome of Foes Review
