5E Platinum Showcase

5E Platinum Showcase

Monday 27 September 2021
In September 2021 we presented the all-new 5E Platinum Showcase featuring bestselling indie supplements for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition. Almost all these top-quality third-party supplements achieved DriveThruRPG’s “Platinum” sales rank or higher — that is, of the tens of thousands of products DriveThru sells, these titles rank in the top 1.44% (not counting titles given away free, sold at cost, or given as crowdfunding rewards — and also, truth to tell, not counting the Bundle of Holding).

There were five titles in our Starter Collection (retail value $46) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks, including the breakthrough character supplement Ancestry & Culture: An Alternative to Race in 5E (Arcanist Press), plus the Ancestry & Culture Pregenerated Characters; the posthuman biopunk campaign setting GeneFunk 2090 (CRISPR Monkey Studios); 5th Edition Horror from Fat Goblin Games; and the Book of Wondrous Magic, a collection of magical items by bestselling designer M.T. Black.

Those who paid more than the threshold (average) price¬†also got our entire Bonus Collection with six more titles worth an additional $61, including Sly Flourish’s Fantastic Adventures, a scenario collection by the author of The Lazy Dungeon Master (plus the Art of Fantastic Adventures companion); two more Ancestries books, Custom Ancestries & Cultures and More Ancestries & Cultures; the GeneFunk 2090 sandbox supplement Shadows of Korea; and M.T. Black’s Anatomy of Adventure.

Ten percent of each payment (after gateway fees) went to this offer’s pandemic-related charity, Direct Relief. Direct Relief gets protective gear and critical care medications to health workers, with emergency deliveries to medical facilities across the US and to regional response agencies across the world.
