Looks like some at Wizards of the Coast likes magic items as much as I do. The tagline even reads: “…we take a look at one of the best parts of being the Dungeon Master—the distribution of treasure!” So true! Like I mentioned yesterday, it is fun dropping an item into the campaign and see how the player’s react.
The old Living Campaign days with the RPGA used to have magic item certificates, “certs”, to give the player a visceral feel of owning a magic item (and also for balance and cheating prevention reasons). The newest incarnation of D&D Adventurers League has gone back and done the same with this season of games. The quality of the certs is so much better.
The date for the Dungeon Master’s Guide (DMG) is ticking down, but not soon enough. Enjoy the art!
But… what do I know…?
