Villain Codex I: Foes For Fledgling Heroes

$4.99
Every good story needs an antagonist. Beowulf isn’t epic without Grendel; Harry Potter doesn’t become the Boy Who Lived without Voldemort; and without Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker is still toiling as an anonymous farmboy on Tatooine.

It’s a superior villain makes a plot memorable.

The Villain Codex I: Foes for Fledgling Heroes presents 12 exciting, memorable NPCs for players, complete with stat blocks across a range of challenge ratings (3-8) to provide GMs with combat challenges their players won’t see coming.

Developed by Swords for Hire Development
Written by Authors: Andres Bermudez, Matthew Browett, Nik Geier, Scott Janke, Mikko Kallio, Luis Loza, J.T. McRoberts, Jacob W. Michaels, Michael Riter, Andrew Umphrey, and Christopher Wasko.

As in Villain Codex I: Foes for Fledgling Heroes, Villain Codex II: Adversaries for Advanced Heroes presents 12 exciting, memorable NPCs for players, complete with stat blocks across a range of challenge ratings (9-14) to provide GMs with combat challenges their players won’t see coming.

Arcane Focus: Secrets of Sensory Magic

$0.99
Many spellcasters know divination as the school of magic related to knowledge: divination spells can remotely explore and examine the world, foretell the future, and uncover secrets hidden by magic, deceit, and even time. Sensory wizards view “knowledge” as bits of information acquired through one’s perception of the world, inextricably linked to the senses that absorb the information and interpret its significance.

What good is a name, for instance, without ears to hear it or eyes to read it, when its meaning is lost on those unable to perceive it? To comprehend ideas and philosophies, one must first be able to experience one’s surroundings through one’s senses, the oldest and purest means of acquiring knowledge.

Within this book you will find:

  • Details of the Sensory School, a new focused arcane school option for would-be diviners.
  • Advice on the roleplay of Sensory Wizards, including characters and adventure hooks to ease the integration of the Sensory School into your campaign.
  • 4 New Spells, 3 New Magic Items, a New Racial Trait, and details on the spellbook of a Sensory Diviner.

Written by Nicholas Wasko & Christopher Wasko

The adventure hooks, items, monsters, feats, and other content can also stand alone as exciting additions to your campaign.

Development: Mike Kimmel
Designers: Jeffrey Swank, Jason Owen Black, Andrew Umphrey, Garrett Guillotte, Mark Nordheim, Jacob W. Michaels, and Matthew Browett

Arcane Focus: The Wayfarer Magics of the Vagabond Mage

$1.99
The common view of wizards is that of the cloistered academic. While many wizards spend their days surrounded by ancient tomes and mystic paraphernalia, there are those who chafe at such an existence. For those wizards whose wanderlust is as strong as their thirst for knowledge, the life of the vagabond mage is very appealing. Not a defined focus so much as an underground tradition, vagabond mages are transmuters who focus on movement, preferring spells that allow them to travel quickly or to overcome the difficulties of the varied terrain they encounter.

Within this book you will find:

  • Details of the Vagabond School, a new focused arcane school option for traveling transmuters.
  • New Spells, New Magic Items, and advice on the roleplay of Vagabond Mage, including characters and adventure hooks to ease the integration of the Vagabond School into your campaign.
