A Planar Grimoire - Spells from Beyond the Material


Across the Multiverse

The realms of D&D contain endless memorable characters and creations.  Spells and magic tend to be quite similar.  Almost every setting has some spell native to its material plane, inspired by some great spellcaster who became a legend within that world.  Sometimes, it's not uncommon to apply a motif or aspect to that world into the spell's identity.  No matter which method is chosen, the spell brings a bit of that world with it when it travels across reality.  

This document contains a selection of a wide variety of planar themed spells, especially as they relate to the Inner and Outer Planes that border Abeir-Toril, The Forgotten Realms.  In addition to stats for the spells are ideas on how to incorporate them through various factions and organizations within the setting, itself.

EDIT 10-18-17: I added a few "creepy" spells in honor of the Halloween season, as well as tied up a loose end I was mulling over for a while.  Plus, I snuck a couple references to some classic Black Isles Studios games that were remade thanks to Beamdog.  Enjoy!

EDIT 10-03-18: Around a year later, I gave this such much needed patching up.  Plus, I added some more spooky spells inspired by the Eberron setting!

In light of the addition of Eberron, I might get a few spells inspired by that setting up sooner or later. Stay tuned! This expansion is free of charge to anyone who previously bought Planar Grimoire.

I'm planning on adding a few spells during the Halloween season. Hopefully this document will get a small expansion, free of charge.

New version has been uploaded. I didn't notice a lot of mistakes initially, as my time is very limited and I lack proof readers (and money to pay said proof readers.) Hopefully, I've addressed these concerns to the best of my ability. Also, I'm always up for expanding this document with even more spells, when the time comes.

Rules Edition(s)
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.
