Slyflourish A.K.A. "The Lazy DM"
The Lazy Dungeon Master is a masterwork of a guide for anyone aspiring to run Dungeons & Dragons or any RPG. Check out How to Be a Great D&D Dungeon Master, even if you're an expert. I can guarantee you'll learn something.
I'd also like to recommend Playing D&D Can Save Your Life, an inspiring take on the role of fantasy and play in mental health.
Legendkeeper is a campaign manager based around maps that I've personally supported from their days on Patreon, and they've added a ton of great features recently. If you're looking to manage a campaign and like thinking visually, they're going to be right up your alley.

Hey! Stuff is missing!
Some content you may be expecting was not released as part of the 5e SRD, so we aren’t allowed to include it in this site.
We are hoping to fill in the gaps using quality homebrew and 3rd party OGL content. Contact us or make a pull request if you know something we should add!
