Craft legendary weapons and armor, now in Fantasy Grounds!

Ghesh's Guide to Making Things is a crafting and modification system designed to complement the 5th Edition rulesystem. The kobold inventor, Ghesh Fizzlebang, is an enigmatic character of some renown, known for his rather explosive ways of improving the equipment of his fellow adventurers. Though his background may cause some raised eyebrows as to the validity of his craft, Ghesh has thoroughly tested all of his inventions for imperfections before releasing it to the world—as is evident by the burns he's received and fingers he's lost. 

In this supplement you will find:

  • Guidelines on crafting every weapon and set of armor appearing in the Player's Handbook
  • Additional materials you can add to weapons and armor to grant them new, foe-crushing effects. Examples include adamantine, azurite, and cold iron. 
  • 90 modifications you can add to your equipment, such as the finned, glamoured, and hardened modifications for armor and the beast singer, uppercut, and lucky modifications for weapons. 
  • A system for using bombs and grenades, including special bombmaker's tools.
  • A new weapon: the grenade launcher
  • Over 20 unique bombs and grenades. Examples include the binding bomb, ram rockets, and the vortex grenade. 

With this supplement in hand, you can tailor your equipment to fit your character as they grow more powerful. The family greatsword you inherited can follow you from 1st to 20th level, growing in power as you enhance it using modifications and additional materials. The chain mail you found in an ancient dwelling can be improved to new levels of quality, elevating it from simple, protective steel to a legendary set of armor infused with arcane might. 

Every table can benefit from Ghesh's Guide to Making Things. Just don't tell Ghesh that. It'll go straight to his head and the last thing we need is a kobold with a superiority complex.

Mod put in mod folder but isn't showing up in the library. Any suggestions on how to address this? I am quite eager to have a look!

I would try restarting Fantasy Grounds - exiting all the way out of the program and then reload the game. If you add a module to the folder while Fantasy Grounds is running, it won't find it.

Is this the only module you've had issues with? You know to activate it from the library tab within FG (library>modules)?

I've just redownloaded the module on my machine and it opens without issue, so this might be a Fantasy Grounds problem. You can reach out to them directly via email:

Hi John,
You will need to reach out to customer support ( to request a refund, as authors do not have the ability to issue them. I'm sure they will be able to help you.

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.
