Old News: Shops in the Valley of the Lords

Anything's for sale! Really, anything.
Ah, another week, another adventure into the Valley of the Lords. This week, the group fought some centipedes, braved the mists of an underground river, and found a scary entrance to the Underdark. The group consisted of mostly Dwarven scholars, which made for a very methodical expedition.

I'm still debating how much of a recap I should give these games. They aren't really substantial enough to merit a full report, each one basically consists of finding a site, killing some monsters, and selling the loot. Of course, there are jokes and epic moments linked in there, but it would only be a few paragraphs and the story line is a bit more esoteric. Honestly, it will be more interesting to hear the story of a single character once they complete one of their goals.

One of my players had the excellent idea of combining several weeks of games into a "gazetteer" of sorts, a local paper updating people on the activities of the various factions. We could even have a roving reporter character, interviewing the different characters and providing their takes on the sites they find.

Anyway, in the meantime, I'll be updating about the monthly games and posting more PDFs that I've created.

This week, I've put together a couple shops that the players can explore while they hang out in New Ashe. It's part of my solution to the gold problem in D&D 5e.

Smith Shop: Ena's Sundries (drive link)
Magic Shop: Dogrioc's Laboratory (drive link)

The magic shop draws on my rules for magic item creation, and the smithing weapon upgrades are pulled from this great Reddit post.

Enjoy, and thanks for reading!
