Faerûn's Vendors - A flexible vendor system for magic consumables

Suggested Price $1.00


“Most magic items are so rare that they aren't available for purchase. […] Doing so is rarely as simple as walking into a shop and selecting an item from a shelf.” – Dungeon Master’s Guide, p. 135.

Besides some very spartan rules concerning selling and crafting there definitely is a lack of information about how to handle magic item availability. That means that a DM always runs the risk of making momentous decisions that unbalance the game.

This system is intended to be as flexible and versatile as possible. You can easily adjust any values given to perfectly fit your campaign!

Hi there, thank you for this clever and streamlined approach to buying magic items. I dig it! One thing is unclear to me though: should players ask and have the DM check the availability for a specific item on the fly, or should the DM roll the availability for all possible items in advance (which I could imagine would be more immersive for the players but quite a bit of work for the DM)? Thank you!

Original electronic
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.
