The DMG has 6 pages of tables to roll on to figure out what magic item you find. On the whole, these charts are pretty good.
When D&D originally came out Gary Gygax more or less taught GMs that they should make huge multilevel dungeons that the adventuring party would enter and loot, killing the monsters who were guarding it.
These official adventures are aimed at both newer and more experienced DMs, giving everyone a chance to run an adventure or even a campaign without having to come up with everything on their own.
Here’s me thinking of ways to not just add more spells to the game based around elemental magics, but also ways to convey the raw power and beautiful nature of these potent forces in your games.

Get the 368-page hardcover of Star Trek Adventures: Core Rulebook for 50% off the cover price, a savings of $30 when you pay $8 or more! Plus, your purchase will support NAACP Legal Defense Fund.
Just like a book or a movie is composed of a long series of scenes, a game of Dungeons & Dragons (and other tabletop roleplaying games) is, in essence, composed of a long series of encounters.
Without the original d20 system, we wouldn’t have 5th edition.
I mean, this is clearly an owl-like creature…and like a bear.
