Khyber's Cursed: Case Studies of Eberron's Aberrant Dragonmarks


A set of Aberrant Dragonmarked options for Eberron!

In the crumbling ruins of the Cogs deep below Sharn, four figures meet in secret to discuss the business of House Tarkanan.

Khyber’s Cursed: Case Studies of Eberron’s Aberrant Dragonmarks picks up right where Wayfinder’s Guide to Eberron leaves off for aberrant dragonmarks. Are you curious about the terrifying powers of these feared dragonmarks? Inside you’ll find a wealth of options to bring aberrant dragonmarks to your table, including:

  • 17 new aberrant dragonmark feats.

  • Six terrifying artifacts from the War of the Mark to challenge your players… or lead them to ruin.

  • New aberrant dragonmark appearance tables to customize player characters and NPCs.

  • New organization that tracks aberrant dragonmarks.

  • A House Agent background to bring House Tarkanan to life.

Khyber’s Cursed brings those holding these destructive marks out of the shadows.

Which edition of DND was this intended to be used for? Are these feats intended to be potentially used in place of the original Aberrant dragonmark feat, or in addition? I ask these questions because a lot of the feats detailed remove hit dice from their target, which in 5e doesn't really do much of anything. For instance the "bloodsucker" feat takes a hit die from a creature and then can be used immediately, does this harm the creature?

Hi! It covers 5th edition and is meant as an expansion to work covered in Wayfinder's Guide to Eberron. The feats can be used in place of and in addition to the feat covered in WGtE.

Bloodkeeper doesn't really do much on its own - absorbing a HD from an enemy isn't the valuable unless you're playing a very gritty game where tracking adversary HD matters. The thought behind it was to have a feat that supplements other feats by granting the ability to replenish HD outside of a long rest. Effectively giving players an ability to use their Aberrant skills more often.

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.
