Surprise Round Fizban‘s Treasury of Dragons

In this episode Jeff and Tracy sit down with Brandes Stoddard and NewbieDM (Enrique Bertran) to give a brief first-look review of the newest D&D release, Fizban's Treasury of Dragons. This review format features a timely but brief review that doesn't have as much depth as a typical Tome Show review. The idea is to give this first look and then come back later for a more standard Tome Show in-depth review after everyone has had time to read and play with the material in the book. We hope you enjoy this new format!
