Best of DMs Guild – January 2018
Welcome to December’s DMs Guild roundup! Every month I gather together some of the best new releases from the DMs Guild. You won’t find many bestsellers here (though some do slip through); the huge amount of new content appearing daily means that lots of great work slips through the cracks. It’s my aim to shed some light on those undiscovered gems, and to give you some fun new things to use in your games that you might not otherwise be aware of.
January was a particularly strong month for the guild, and it was tough to trim this list down. In the end I decided to focus largely on creators who I haven’t featured work by in the past. A lot of new faces published on the Guild this month, and I’m excited to see what the future holds for them!
As always, if you just want to see the products I’m recommending, all you need is the table below. Otherwise, scroll down for the reviews and to look at the cover art. I’ve also put together a master list of everything that’s been featured in the history of these posts, for those of you who want it. You can find that here.
