It’s time to roll the dice on new 5E compatible releases! Come check out this week’s batch of brand-new tabletop role-playing games.

Planting Gone Wrong: A 5E Adventure

The party is venturing through the forest of Redwood Grove when they stumble upon Eliyah, an injured druid. The druid explains about the Overgrowth Society and how one of their experiments went terribly wrong, and now an uncontrolled plant monstrosity is quickly spreading its roots through the forest.

Left with no choice, the druid requests the adventurers to venture into the forest and search for any of his brothers and sisters who might have survived the aftermath. With Dandelia the Dryad’s assistance, the adventurers will traverse a mushroom-infested forest and face various dangers before they reach the Overgrowth Society’s hidden grove.

There, they will have to traverse a densely overgrown plantation, convince (or not) a pair of water elementals to stop their contracted work, and finally destroy a water reservoir before delving into the druids’ research center to destroy the monster at its core, lest it continue to grow.


Echoes Across Realms

As the stars align in a once in a millennia cosmic convergence, an unsettling ripple courses through the very fabric of reality. Emerging with the help of the amplified celestial energies, a spectral figure materializes, its form nebulous as it drifts between dimensions. The Dimensional Echo, a being attuned to eldritch resonance, with the ability to traverse the borders of dimensions, threatens to shatter the veil between the realms.

The fate of the cosmos is at stake, can you avert the annihilation of entire realms?

An adventure designed for level 5 adventurers.

What the Tide Brings

A small fishing village keeps in its history a legend of an ancient empire that once existed in those lands. According to this legend, the empire achieved a powerful domain in the magical arts thanks to the blood of its slaves, sacrificed in rituals that took place throughout the territory.

Their magical knowledge was so advanced that it dwarfed that of neighboring kingdoms, but their true source of power was a closely guarded dark secret. These kingdoms, moved by greed, accused the old empire of using forbidden magic and formed a coalition aimed at obtaining this formidable knowledge.

Although powerful in magic, the Empire was inferior in number, which ended up tipping the balance in favor of the coalition. Desperately searching for the secrets they craved, they ravaged the entire Empire, yet they were unable to find what they were looking for or make their defeated enemies speak.

The sight of the Empire’s profane rituals, which were carried out along the coast and on the neighboring islands, was so terrifying that they erased all records from history, leaving only rumors and legends about the terrible rituals and the forbidden nature of their magic
