Here's a preview of the Magic Items in Death Dealing including the Hand of Mechna, the Cloak of Rewinding, and The Curious Card of Elasmo B. Cadabra. 

Speaking of, should I change the name of the Magic Spells section to Abra CARDabra? 

Thanks to everyone who has provided feedback, asked questions, and caught typos!

Tomorrow, I'll be previewing the creatures in Death Dealing.

Death Dealing Deck preview! All the cards!
5 months ago – Tue, Jul 11, 2023 at 10:19:33 AM

Thanks to everyone for the feedback on the previous previews! Keep it coming!

And a reminder that all my my Patreon supporters are thanked by name in my books when they go to press. You can become a Patreon supporter here.

I've shared the Death Dealing Deck before and you've seen the online version at 

The card previews below include updates and address some initial concerns. The cards take up a lot of pages of the book but it was important to me that everyone be able to play this subclass with just the PDF or book. It took a while to figure out how to fit all these cards in neatly and I'm pretty happy with the layouts. Each suit is a double-page spread.

Also included is the chart you can use to roll your card selections. The higher the number the better.

(You can see room for more FAQ answers at the bottom of that page so keep them coming! :) )

Tomorrow, we'll preview the Magic Items!

Thank you again!

Magic Spells preview!
5 months ago – Mon, Jul 10, 2023 at 10:30:41 AM

Today's preview is a look at new magic spells included in Death Dealing.

Now, your Death Dealing Rogue is not inherently a spellcaster but they can get access to the Summon Cardling spell through their Deck's perks. And multi-classing might unlock others.

New spells are among the most contentious additions to any 5E campaign so I'm preparing myself for your withering criticism! I appreciate any feedback and will work to help make these acceptable to your DM. :)

Tomorrow's preview will be a bigger look at each of the Death Dealing cards.

Thanks again!
