NEW! FANTASY GROUNDS CONVERSION IS HERE! NEW! says: "Halaster's Hoard is a fantastic supplement for Dungeon of the Mad Mage!" says: "A lot of thought and work went into this supplement and I love it."

A group of the Guild's most creative minds has banded together to bring you a huge collection of powerful magic items, challenging monsters, and devious traps to tempt and terrorize the most jaded veteran adventurers.

Included in this weighty tome are:

  • 96 magic items
  • 65 monsters with lore and tactics
  • 13 traps both simple and complex
  • Halaster's Vault, a short adventure location for you to add to the deepest levels of Undermountain. Will the heroes be able to brave the Mad Mage's guardians and devious traps to reclaim a mysterious artifact from his hoard?
Specifically designed to supplement your Waterdeep: Dungeon of the Mad Mage campaign, the contents of Halaster's Hoard can be used to complement any 5th Edition game.

R P Davis had the pleasure of leading the design team, working alongside Christopher Walz, Elise Cretel, Jeromy Schulz-Arnold, and Luke Monroe. Layout by Travis Legge and editing by Ken Carcas.

Is there an ETC on the fantasy grounds module creation? I keep checking every week, but would be nice to just set a reminder of when to check if you have estimate. Thanks!

Is there any expectation for Halaster's Hoard to become Adventurers League legal?

Hello Jessie! I am one of the writer's on the project. First off, thank you so much for your interest in our book.

Sadly, that will almost certainly not happen. AL legality is tightly controlled and tends to only be the given to Guild Adept titles or titles specifically written for the AL program, including Convention Created Content. To my knowledge, no piece of DMs Guild Community Content has been made AL legal.

That's a bummer. Halaster's Hoard fills a gaping void in DMM and adds so much more dimension and versatility to the hardcover. Thank you for putting out a product that helps bring back the cultural and historical feel to an iconic location.

Thanks a lot! If you feel compelled, drop a review over on the other tab. It helps us creators tremendously.

How does the PCHC cast counterspell as a legendary action when counterspell is a reaction and legendary actions occur at the end of the turn when that spell action has already been resolved? That legendary action doesn't work with RAW unfortunately and should probably be changed.

Thanks for your question! Here's the errata: He can sacrifice a Legendary Action to gain access to a reaction. I'll make sure the document is modified to include this.

any update on making it a MOD for Fantasy Grounds?
Customer avatar
Corey S January 07, 2019 5:53 pm UTC
This is also what I'm waiting on. Though I'd like the PDF, if given the choice, I will always choose the mod file to the PDF...

Couple people have already asked about this being converted to Fantasy Grounds. Any interest from the team?
Customer avatar
Corey S December 17, 2018 6:20 pm UTC
I would LOVE to have this converted. I would have already bought it, were it converted, actually.
Customer avatar
Rob T December 17, 2018 6:24 pm UTC
We'll see if one of the AUTHORS thinks so... Heh heh.
Customer avatar
R P D December 17, 2018 6:36 pm UTC
We're discussing it. =) When a conversion is completed, I'll be sure to post here.
Customer avatar
Corey S December 17, 2018 7:07 pm UTC
I look forward to it! Thanks for the quick replies!

(though, not surprised Rob replies quickly... Rob replies to any posts on any part of the social media outlets where DnD is involved as fast as most people can refresh a page). ;)

Sounds like they have someone else doing the conversion. Can't wait.

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.
