Manual of Masks


"Very creative and well written. There is something in this little supplement for everyone!" — M.T. Black

"I loved it." — Guy Sclanders of How to be a Great Game Master

Masks are more than a mere disguise — they are objects of art, representations of a cultural heritage, spiritual totems, symbols of oppression, depictions of our deepest nightmares, and tools for the storyteller.

From Mask’s black mask icon to Agatha's white illusionary mask, masks are an important part of the Forgotten Realms, and have inspired and driven many of its greatest tales.

Within this manual, you’ll find new mask-inspired player options, adventuring gear, and magical items. Whether you’re a thief wishing to conceal your identity, or a warlock wanting to channel your patron’s power through a diabolical mask, you’ll find tantalizing new options within.

The Manual of Masks includes:

  • New Pact of the Mask warlock pact boon
  • New mask-themed eldritch invocations
  • The Mask Mage arcane tradition
  • New adventuring gear, including the alchemist's mask, armored hoods, and the infamous iron mask
  • Rules for headshots, called shots, and hit locations
  • 12 new magical masks

The material presented was pretty good. I just feel like I'm unlikely to use some of the materials. Also, the system for determining what part of the body is hit doesn't really work. [...]

This has some really fun ideas in it that I can't wait to play around with. The Warlock stuff is especially good and super flavorful. Plus anything that gives that class spell storage sounds great! My only issue with this is that it's too dang short. [...]

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.
