Axolote Beasts - Set 1

These 3d printable beasts are just incredible. The "Eye Beast" is a hard model to find out in the market place. Being able to print my own and as many as I want was worth the price alone, not to mention all the other beasts included. I was a bit worried about being able to print some of these, but I have had no issues printing any of them and the quality is top notch.

As for my printer, I have a Monoprice Maker Select v2 - I made sure I had a clean or new print head and bowden tube In Cura I set the print to the Extra Fine level (0.06mm) Generate Support: YES Support Placement: Everywhere Support Pattern: Lines (I always use the lines support pattern for the structure -lines supports come off the model easiest) Support Z Distance: 0.1 Support X/Y Distance: 0.7

All in all a great product and worth the purchase. Give em a try.

GM's Miscellany: Wilderness Dressing (System Neutral Edition)
Publisher: Raging Swan Press

I initally purchased this book as a pdf to check it out before spending the money on the softcover. With the quality that Raging Swan Press is known for, I should have just bought them as the package. In any event, I own the pdf and softcover editions now and couldnt be happier with my purchases. I prefer a physical book to flip through, however if you like to use pdfs, you will be just as satisfied.

  • Similar to their Dungeon Dressing suppliment, this book contains detailed descriptions of all types of events that can happen while your party is out in the wilderness. So instead of saying your party camps for the night, you can say "Your party camps for the night... During the night you see a single pair of large , unblinking eyes watching over the campsite from nearby... After a few minutes the creature departs." - (creepy, right ? and will keep the party on their toes and open their imaginations, get them worrying)

There are literally thousands of descriptions in this suppliment, with 100 descriptions per area type/event. So lets say your party is out in the forest and woodlands and you want to give your adventurers a little flavor.. You simply turn to "Forest and Woodlands: Dressing" there are 100 descriptions, so you can roll a percentage die, or randomly pick one you like. In this case I rolled a 33, so i read that description.. - "The gutted, rotten carcass of a deer lies in the undergrowth near the trail. The surrounding undergrowth is stained red with blood. A skilled hunter hs obviously efficiently butchered the carcass"

This simple description opens up a lot of feeling and choices.. Does the party need to worry about this hunter? Who is it? Is he a minon, collecting food for his master? Is he a simple ranger living off the land? .... Then the party can continue on their current quest or this could become the hook of a small or large side quest...

Much better than.. your party travels along the path through the woods to their destination.

This book is worth purchasing. There are well thought out and disparate descriptions for the given areas. Worth purchasing and worth using. Your players will thank you for it! :)

I originally purchased the pdf version of GM's Miscellany: Dungeon Dressing (System Neutral Edition). After looking forward I decided It was well worth purchasing the Hardcover Edition. Which I did. The book is magnificent. It makes it so easy to come up with beautiful descriptions quickly. There is information on Altars, Doors, Walls, Floors, Entrances, Pits, Pools., etc You name it, if it is in a dungeon it is probably in here. In less than 30 seconds you can turn to the page and find a random description for a dungeon object. Your players will love you, and you will love it. Coming up with detailed descriptions on the fly can be really difficult, especially if you need 3 or 4 in short order. This solves that problem for your dungeon dives. I went from being an "ok" DM to a "really good" DM in short order. So helpful.. Thank you Raging Swan Press! They also have Wilderness Dressing and Urban Dressing books.. It is worth your time to take a look.

This entire line of printable Miniatures is just fantastic.. The art is very detailed and beautiful..   I had some doubts about how good they would work, but they are very easy to put together and they work just wonderfully for battle maps during an encounter, etc....     I decided to back this creator on Patreon, and get access to all his Miniatures...
