Dungeons & Dragons 5E has many advantages. It simplified the rules so much that it made it easier for new players to get into the game. While there is nothing inherently wrong with having a simplified system, it has made some too limited choices. In particular, choices of weapons and armor. I’ve certainly felt this frustration, often choosing weapons and armor simply for maximum damage and protection rather than for any real character-driven reason. Crit Academy game publishers are hoping to change that with their latest Kickstarter Advantages of exotic equipment.
This new collection will give you a good reason to choose any piece of weapon and armor. Each weapon and piece of armor will have a unique advantage such as special skill or technique that can be used. From the way it is talked about on the Kickstarter page, it looks like everyone will come with their own type of business associated with it. This collection looks great, not only have they added equipment perks in the manual, but they’ve added more weapons and armor to choose from.
I think this is a great idea. This has huge implications for classes which can use many different types of weapons and armor as fighters. Not only that, but spellcasters will finally have more reasons to choose certain types of weapons as spell focus or to use component bags. The possibilities are endless, and that’s exactly what you want for a TTRPG. Check out Kickstarter now until October 20, 2022 to help fund and get some great added variety to your game now.
