Welcome to the Archive of Magic Items! This book contains over 350 new items for your 5th edition game, and includes new features like:

  • Unique forms of attunement!
  • Rules for modifying items for use at higher or lower levels!
  • New weapons!

And much more! Back the Archive of Magic Items, and enjoy a treasure hoard of brand new, exciting items!

About the Project

The main purpose of this project is to raise funds to add additional art to the book. The magic items have all been created; if the project successfully funds, you will receive them all. Your support means that we will be able to bring the items in the Archive to life with beautiful, invocative art. We already have artwork from talented artists Alli Grimes, Matthew Sargent, and Jack Kaiser, and we hope to have more.

Below are some sample pages (not final) to give you an idea of what the finished product will look like.

Shipping

In order to avoid common problems from shipping, especially for our first project, we will be fulfilling print orders through DriveThruRPG. You will be responsible for paying the cost of the printing, shipping, and handling. This will come out to approximately $25 for a color, print copy of the book (assuming 200 pages). When you back at the print level or higher, you will receive a link to buy the book through DriveThruRPG, and only pay for the printing/shipping/handling.

Because the physical copies will be at cost, the pledge level is priced low to account for the additional shipping costs.

Stretch Goals

We have a few stretch goals to add more features to the book. Every stretch goal will add more art to the book!

$5,000: More Item Properties - Enhance regular, nonmagical items! I will add a section that details properties that you can add to armor and weapons to give them more variety!

$7,000: Spontaneous Item Creation - Not all magic items are forged, some are created by heroic or magical events! At this level, I will include a section that details how items can spontaneously become magical, and some sample ideas you can use.

$9,000: More Special Features - This stretch goal is perfect for those who like to randomly create their own magic items! At this level, I will include options for determining the creator, history, properties, and quirks of magic items.

$15,000: NPC Gallery - I will include an NPC gallery in the Archive, which will feature NPCs that are related to or utilize some of the items from the Archive. Stat blocks will be included!

Risks and challenges

In order to minimize potential challenges for our first project, we will be handling the delivery of physical books through print-on-demand.

The core material has already been written, so the potential for failure is low. However, unexpected issues could result in a delay to the expected delivery date.
