The Red Wizards of Thay, A Faction Guide For Players


The Red Wizards are but a shadow of their former organization...but they are out there, and they’re making a comeback.

Whether your character is working in the Moonsea region, Sword Coast, or even in Skullport as an emissary to Waterdeep, this supplement includes optional rules for any adventure to make the Red Wizards of Thay a character-playable faction. The writer took a similar approach to the publication Guide to the Five Factions. It includes:

Red Wizard
  • Faction summary, traits, goals, and beliefs
  • Circle Magic rules that are incorporated into faction ranks
  • Rank perks and variant magical items (with D&D Beyond links)
  • Faction directive letter
  • Four example faction representatives
  • Sidekicks for servants and apprentices, with 5 statblocks
  • Faction art (four separate .png files with license to use in your own publications)
  • Faction magic items that can be shared with players on D&D Beyond, giving them easy access to all the rank perks.
  • Rose Keep, a 5e variant of a Thayan enclave that fits directly into Skullport in Waterdeep: Dungeon of the Mad Mage, along with two additional unique magic items.
  • A phone PDF with the faction perks that provides a convenient reference aid.

Along with a couple minor edits, this last update (1.2) adds the faction insignia as a magic item so you can share with players...the description includes all the various rank benefits so players have easy access to the perks straight in their D&D Beyond character sheet. D&D Beyond links to the satchel, robe, blessing, charm, circle magic feat, and tattoo artist background are in there as well to make it easy to add these things to a character.

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.
