Mark of the Vestige (5e)


Now Available for Fantasy Grounds!

In the spaces between realms, accessible only through cracks in the fabric of reality, creatures of unusual power roam in search of hosts--vestiges. Using this book, one might bind a vestige to their very soul, temporarily earning supernatural abilities beyond the norm--but beware the consequences, dear friend. You may find yourself a pawn in a game beyond your reckoning.

Mark of the Vestige is a 5e conversion of 3.5e's "Vestige" rules, as introduced in the Tome of Magic sourcebook. Using these rules, a character can perform a ritual to temporarily take on the powers of a particular vestige, in exchange for hosting that vestige in their own body--and risking the vestige influencing their actions.

This fully illustrated 56-page guide introduces the following:

  • Rules, mechanics, and roleplaying tips for including vestiges in your games
  • 32 vestiges from the Tome of Magic sourcebook, complete with lore, descriptions, and powers
  • 3 all-new vestiges exclusive to this guide
  • 20 magic items for your vestige-bound characters
  • An appendix of handouts to quickly reference a vestige's powers mid-game

Does this have a 5e version of the binder class?

Hi Gabriel!

As opposed to sequestering vestiges into their own class, this product makes them an option for characters of any class. However, there are some great updated versions of the Binder elsewhere on the Guild, many of which pair well with this book!

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.
