Xanathar's Guide to Orders and Organizations


In his Guide to Everything, the Xanathar described new avenues of power for adventurers of all types. In his follow-up text, the know-it-all beholder brings you a listing of Orders and Organizations that are connected to the new archetype options presented in Xanathar's Guide. 

Xanathar's Guide to Orders and Organization contains 31 fully detailed factions to help organically connect the archetypes of Xanathar's Guide to any campaign. These groups do not require use of the Xanathar's Guide material and can be easily plugged into any campaign setting to provide interesting new allies and adversaries. Each entry contains lore on the faction, as well as details on their goals and outlooks, their secrets, and the battles they fight every day. Each entry also contains a section on how to join the faction, as well as the type of quests adventurers can expect to undertake when working with the organizations.

  • Join or oppose the Keepers of the Line, a faction of Grave Domain clerics that believe only they have the necessary judgment to meddle with the forces of life and death, hunting down those who reanimate the undead or even sometimes adventurers who have been resurrected.
  • Visit the museum of the Curators of Steel, where bards of the College of Swords collect and keep sentient magic weapons to keep them out of evil hands, wielding them when necessary to defend their home.
  • Witness the power of Draconis Mortem, a group of paladins who swore the Oath of Conquest that have vowed to hunt down every living dragon in the land, uncaring of good and evil and willing to work with fiends and the undead if it means taking down the hated dragons.
  • ... with 28 additional factions to bring new life to your home campaign!

Useful for DMs and players alike, Xanathar's Guide to Orders and Organizations can help to connect new characters created using the materials from Xanathar's Guide to Everything to your home game, or just to bring new power players into the world to aid, oppose, betray, and fall before your heroic adventurers.

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.
