The Repository of Arcane Oddities


Grant your players some fantastical magic items ranging from ridiculous to ridiculously cool with this extension compendium of 120 magical items and its supplementary item trait rulesets

Want some more inventive magic items for your setting? Do all your magic item shops have the same twelve items in them? Do you want an extension to the magic item generation rules in the Dungeon Master's Guide? Do you want an artifact that's just the right amount of ridiculous? Well, I have plenty of options for you!

The Complete Archive of Esoteric Secrets features the following:

  • 10 new pieces of magical armour, including a shield the size of a man, a dragon-metal set of scale mail, and a curse set of golden armour that makes everyone forget who you are
  • 1 new potion, allowing spellcasters something to replenish some lost energy
  • 4 new rings, including a vengeful tree spirit, and a pair of self-locating bands
  • 2 new rods, including a node that allows you to go back to where you started, and bringer of ruin
  • 3 new staffs, including an earthen staff capable of toppling mountains, and a staff of far-realm origins capable of bending minds
  • 2 new wands, including a wand of floating shards and a wand that is always beside you, yet never seen
  • 36 new weapons, including a trio of glowing yellow disks, a sword of raging coral, and a blade that sealed a god in glass

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.
