The Emporium of Uncanny Magic — Lost Potions


The fifth edition Dungeon Master’s Guide features a whole host of cool magic items for Dungeons & Dragons, including many classic items updated from previous editions of the D&D game. But given the sheer number of magic items unleashed on unsuspecting players over 40+ years, it was inevitable that the Dungeon Master’s Guide needed to leave a whole bunch of stuff out.

So if you’re looking for more magic, or lamenting the loss of some favorite item from editions past, the Emporium of Uncanny Magic has you covered.

The Emporium of Uncanny Magic — Lost Potions is another in Insane Angel Studios' series of short supplements dedicated to adapting and updating the hundreds of magic items that have been a core part of previous editions of the D&D game. This volume presents twenty-seven interesting potions, elixirs, philters, and oils from AD&D through fourth edition, updated and revised for fifth edition. Also included in this collection are four potion curses — new rules for drawbacks and only-occasionally fatal flaws that can be added to regular potions, to the detriment of characters and the amusement of DMs. 

Scott Fitzgerald Gray (9th-level layabout, vindictive good) is a writer of fantasy and speculative fiction, a fiction editor, a story editor, and an editor and designer of roleplaying games, all of which means he finally has the job he really wanted when he was sixteen. Since 2004, Scott has worked on upwards of two hundred RPG rulebooks, supplements, adventures, and articles for Wizards of the Coast and other publishers, including all three core rulebooks for fifth edition DUNGEONS & DRAGONS. He shares his life in the Canadian hinterland with a schoolteacher, two itinerant daughters, and a number of animal and spirit companions.

You get what it says on the tin: a series of potions, oils, and other consumable magic items. 27 of them to be precise, and all of them with different rarities: Common (4), Uncommon (10), Rare (7), Very Rare (3) and Legendary (3). The layout and graphi [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
