Persuasion Check: Unearthed Arcana – Magic Items of Eberron

It’s October, which means the newest Unearthed Arcana is either going to be a trick or treat- and a treat it is! We’re taking a look at a group of Eberron style magic items, where magic is a part of everyday life. Specifically we…

Persuasion Check: Unearthed Arcana – Dragonmarks

A new month, a new Unearthed Arcana. This time around we’re taking a look at some content from Wayfinder’s Guide to Eberron from the Dungeon Master’s Guild, specifically looking at Dragonmarks. The Dragonmarks are essentially 12 new subraces or variant races for humans, half-elves, half-orcs,…

Persuasion Check: Unearthed Arcana – Races of Ravnica

With all the hype featuring the most ambitious crossover event in history, that being the upcoming Guildmaster’s Guide to Ravnica for D&D, it makes sense to get a set of playtest races from Ravnica for this month’s Unearthed Arcana. Any Magic: the Gathering player…

Persuasion Check: Unearthed Arcana – Races of Eberron

Although a tad late, July’s Unearthed Arcana still delivers! Not one, not two, but three revised races in addition to a brand new one! We have updated versions of Changelings, Shifters, and Warforged and for the first time we can play as Kalashtar! While…

Persuasion Check: Unearthed Arcana – Giant Soul Sorcerer

June is looking to be BIG thanks to the new Giant Soul Sorcerer subclass in this month’s Unearthed Arcana! A quick glance got me excited since I firmly believe that the Sorcerer has some of the best potential for a wide array of subclasses. As…

Persuasion Check: Unearthed Arcana – Centaurs and Minotaurs

We’re back with May’s Unearthed Arcana taking a look at playable races for Centaurs and Minotaurs! Minotaurs previously appeared in 2015, but they’re back and revised alongside their fellow ‘taur. Even as a DM, I love seeing new player options, especially races, come out….

Persuasion Check: Unearthed Arcana – Order Domain

We’re officially a quarter of the way through the year, and what better way to celebrate that completely arbitrary achievement than with a new cleric domain? The Order Domain puts the lawful in lawful good/neutral/evil. On the face this looks like an exciting new domain that…

Persuasion Check: Unearthed Arcana – Three Subclasses

It’s a new year with a new slew of Unearthed Arcana to take a look at! And what better way to kick off 2018 than with three new subclasses, one each for Druid, Fighter, and Wizard? On the nature front, we have the death-centric…

Persuasion Check: Unearthed Arcana – Elf Subraces

Another month, another batch of playtest rules from our good friends at Wizards of the Coast. This month, following up on September’s positive feedback on the eladrin subrace, we get four more elf subraces, each distinct from each other and those already existing. This includes…

Persuasion Check: Unearthed Arcana – Fiendish Options

Now that Unearthed Arcana is back on a monthly release schedule, we have more time to look into and play with the material before the next set is thrown at us. That said, May’s article is a handful of revisions of previous subclasses released through Unearthed Arcana, so we wanted to dive in right away. […]

Persuasion Check: Unearthed Arcana – Eladrin and Gith

Now that Unearthed Arcana is back on a monthly release schedule, we have more time to look into and play with the material before the next set is thrown at us. That said, May’s article is a handful of revisions of previous subclasses released through Unearthed Arcana, so we wanted to dive in right away. […]

Persuasion Check: Unearthed Arcana – Three-Pillar Experience

At first I wasn’t sure what to think about August’s Unearthed Arcana as it came in as a brief (a little less than 2 pages) article on the heels of a very controversial release in July. It takes on the challenge of awarding experience in…
