Codex Siberys: Mourning & Madness


The Dragon Above presents…

Codex Siberys: Mourning and Madness

This compendium of enemies and allies contains statistics and illustrations for 30 original monsters built specifically for your Eberron campaign. By embracing the unique potential of social tabletop gameplay, these monsters offer outlandish, encounter-defining abilities which are sure to lead to dynamic combat and rich opportunities for roleplay and problem-solving.

Each creature is fully integrated into Eberron lore, including links to the factions and nations of Khorvaire and beyond. Some of these monsters are prime targets for a hunt, if you can find the right patron - but tangling with others might draw the attention of powerful villains...

Force your players to “donate” blood to the Mournland’s glass horrors, shatter their psyches in telepathic battle with a mad kalashtar, or watch them succumb to the Etherclaw hive mind in Khyber - Eberron has never been as fun, or as deadly!

The Codex includes:

  • 30 new monsters, complete with 24 original illustrations by the creator.
  • 1 new player race, the Eneko, with 2 subraces.
  • 2 magic items derived from featured monsters.

The Codex Siberys is a collected work based on over a decade of homebrew content at the "Dragon Above" blog. The Dragon Above started life in 2004 as the Eberron Bestiary, and has created hundreds of monsters across 3.5 Edition, 4th Edition, and now 5th Edition D&D.

Out of curiosity: Will the Community Copy discount links be renewed any time soon? They're currently expired. Same thing with Codex Siberys 2 as well.

Thank you for your interest, and for reminding me about the links.
I have renewed the Keep Playing it Forward discount codes for both Codex Siberys and Codex Siberys 2.

There are appear to be some mistakes with some creature's challenge rating and the exp reward. For example:

The Etherclaw Drone's listed CR is 1/2 but then says (700XP) (either its CR should be higher or the XP should be lower)
The Etherclaw Clairvoyant CR 16 (8,400 XP) listed (either its CR should be higher or the XP should be lower)

Thank you for pointing these out to me!
I can confirm that the XP rewards are listed wrong, rather than the CRs.

The Drone should be CR 1/2 (100XP)
The Clairvoyant should be CR 16 (15,000 XP)

They'll be fixed in the next update to the Codex.

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.
