Soon I’m starting playtesting on my first adventure I intend to publish. It’s about a diamond cartel that’s cornered the market on resurrection. Here’s the first piece of art I’ve commissioned, by Andrew Phan. His portfolio is here: artstation.com/droodesigns

In 5e, resurrection spells all require diamonds. This is a rich worldbuilding detail that ONLY appears in the material components of a couple spells. It’s an easy jump from the shady history of real, earthly diamonds to a a shady magical history there too.

It’s going to be a morally fraught adventure with some inescapable social and political commentary and a hefty amount of satire. I have a great villain who will feel very familiar. Tons of Easter eggs for savvy readers.

Following you to hear more about it - might have to see if I can drop it into my homebrew setting. (The Rogue’s Guild in my world serves the Raven Queen, so a diamond cartel revolving around magic that brings back the dead... hmmm!)

I'm a total newb about established settings, but it's meant to be setting-agnostic. I wrote a sidebar with recommendations on where to put it in Forgotten Realms, Eberron, Greyhawk, and Dragonlance.

The real step off the cliff for me is "have a DM run this without my input to make sure they can do it and it makes sense." So... wanna be a playtest DM?

This sounds awesome. Still looking for DMs to playtest? If not, I'll eagerly await the full release.

This is so obvious, and yet, this is also the first time I've ever seen anyone mention it.

This sounds very cool, I'd love to playtest if you're still looking for GM's

I need to get my madcap writings down on paper in a way that a coherent human brain can understand them. Once I'm done, I'd love to have you playtest. I'll get back to you in the coming months!
