Alex Recommends "Deep Magic":
"This amazing third-party expansion to 5e is a caster's dream! An enormous list of incredible new spells, as well as expansions to patrons, domains, origins, pretty much anything you could need for every type of mage.
I really recommend this not only for its potential for players, but for the amazing inspiration it has to offer DMs".
Brianna says: "Snow, Glass, Apples" is a dark twisted take on the Snow White fairy tale. The art is absolutely stunning and is told through the perspective of the 'Evil' Queen. Snow White is not as innocent as she seems. If you're looking for a creepy take on a classic story, this would be a great read. Plus it was the Winner of the 2019 Bram Stoker Award.
Before There Were Stars is a game that brings wonder and imagination to the forefront while combining earnest cooperation with good-natured competitiveness. When I first read through the instructions, I noticed how every aspect of this game is designed to create an open and supportive environment for storytellers of all skill levels to discover and tell amazing fables. This is not a game where cheating or min-maxing will help you succeed because every moment and choice will shift and build not only the story you are crafting but your own storytelling skills as well.
One of my favorite mechanics in this game is centered around how players will roll star dice to determine what constellation cards they can pick, but if a player ahead of you sees a card they believe your story could benefit from but you don’t have stars to afford, they can sacrifice some of their dice to help you bridge the gap. This is a special move and certainly is not going to occur every turn or even every game, but it showcases a form of inter-player support that I do not often see in games these days.
When I play Before There Were Stars with friends, I feel like we become a group of powerful cosmic beings creating entire worlds from stardust and commending each other on the amazing and creative moments in the stories we weave.
