Calpurnia's 101 Lesser Magical Items


101 magical items suitable for 5e Dungeons and Dragons, designed for lower level adventurers.

  • Low-power. A source of items to give to low-level adventures without fear of breaking the game.
  • Interesting. Low-powered doesn't have to mean boring. These items focus on giving heroes new options in their adventures, not just bonuses to rolls.
  • Variants. Most items have several variants -- ways items can be altered to be more powerful, less powerful, or just different. Some variants are cursed.
  • Background. Calpurnia offers insight into many of the items, discussing curious ways they can be used. DMs may find her notes inspire adventure ideas.
  • Bookmarks. The PDF makes full use of bookmark features, with every item linked. Also, the Table of Contents is clickable.
  • Platinum Seller. In the top 0.61% of DMs Guild titles (as of March 2019).
  • Illustrated. Art by Togo Hornblower.

What Others Have Said About Calpurnia's 101 Lesser Magical Items

"Calpurnia's 101 Lesser Magical Items is the perfect shopping list of fun, varied magic items for your lower level characters."

Video review:

"There are items of all shapes and sizes and of all power levels here. I think Joel did a really good job tying many of them to specific 5e mechanics and class features. This isn't a bunch of thrown-together ideas. Honestly, given the quality and the large amount of items here, I could probably get by with just this supplement and the officially published stuff and never need to look anywhere else."

-- Jeremy "frothsof" Smith

Written review:

"At that price you are getting a wealth of value and so I can only really give this a 5 out of 5."

Likely you purchased the Fantasy Grounds version by mistake. (This is the PDF version, there's a link in the product description above to the Fantasy Grounds version.)

Unfortunately I can't undo the purchase myself. That's something only DMs Guild staff can do. Use the below link to send them a message. I'm sure they'll be happy to help.

Will this title get a discount for the Eberron sale? I saw the Fantasy Grounds Module was discounted, but the PDF doesn't seem to be.

That's not a bad idea at all. I've created a link (see below) that will offer a discount. It will persist for the duration of the Eberron sale.

Hey, thanks for the discount! I didn't get the notification during the Eberron sale, but I got it during the cyber week one! Thanks a bunch =)

I absolutely love this, and I filled a magic shop with about 98 of these. However I want to hand my players a heavily doctored sheet of this so they can see what they are looking at.

Do you have an original version of this so I do not have to copy and paste from a pdf and do a ton of work cleaning that up and then doctoring it?

I just tried copying and pasting from the original document. It's better than what happens when you copy/paste from the PDF but not by a whole lot. Would that be helpful? I could send you a text document with the pasted text. If it would help, I'll need an email address. Best bet is to use my contact information at the end of the PDF.

I am planning on using this for a Star Wars themed campaign and was wondering if I could get a word/original format copy so that I dont need to copy and paste every thing for re-flavoring.

No worries if thats weird, just figured I would ask.

I think that will be possible! Let's take this discussion off the comments section. In the Appendix of the PDF you'll find a link that will get you to my email. Feel free to throw me a message there.

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.
