As part of our Monsters of the Guildverse sale, this digital title has been marked down by up to 30%. For more monstrous savings, visit our Monsters of the Guildverse Sale page.

Strixhaven Supplemental Volume I: Course Catalog and Staff Directory is a companion to Strixhaven: A Curriculum of Chaos.  This first volume contains 127 new and unique classes, each with their own punny or humorous name, to offer your players during their time at school. Each class comes with example ideas for DMs to use in terms of homework assignments, lab sessions, and exams as well as associated skill checks and other rolls for DMs to use for roleplay purposes. 

Each class in this book comes with it's own reward.  Using the school setting each player essentially can learn magic like a Wizard without needing to multiclass and gains spells for successfully passing classes.  These spells are meant to be used instead of the spells granted in the new, published backgrounds.

Additionally included are 31 new professors and staff of all manner of races and gender identities, each with their own personalities and backstories.  There are also additional details on the published faculty so DMs have more than two to three sentences to use when building personalities for the published faculty.

Hi Alex,
Now that i created a digital database of all NPCs including your new professors, i found some more things i want you to know.
1. The cover is missing in 1.9
2. Akhwa is described as "professor of order" even though she is a prismari
3. Most of the Quandrix professors are missing the principles. I'm not sure if Clem is theory or substance for example. In Silverquill on the other hand the principle is something you write much about.

Just wanted to give a huge thank you for all four volumes of your Strixhaven Supplementals. The adventure was in serious need of restructuring and tuning up and your products have really helped when it comes to adding more flavor and options!

Great Strixhaven supplement, I've been telling people in my Strixhaven group on Facebook about it and posted some links to DMsGuild.
But now, I'm curious-what are the 26 classic monsters? Lol

This is what I came up with:A-Ankheg, B-Basilisk, Beholder, C-Carrion Crawler, D-Displacer Beast, Dragons, Drider, F-Flumph, G-Gelatinous Cube, Githyanki, Gnoll, I-Illithid (Mindflayer), K-Kobolds, L-Lich, M-Mimic, Modron, O-Owlbear, P-Purple Worm, R-Rust Monster, S-Shambling Mound, Slaad, T-Tarrasque, Troll, U-Umber Hulk, V-Vampire, W-Wraith
Only real issue I have is I couldn't really include any Demons/Devils, although I think that should be a whole separate class.

These are perfect! I never got around to coming up with a complete list but this one is really well done! I would agree that demons and devils would be separate. And thank you for the feedback and mentioning me!

Hey :) I was wondering if I just missed the DCs for passing courses or if they aren't in this supplement. I noticed this because you mention that some courses are quite challenging and thus have a higher DC to pass but I couldn't find said DCs anywhere. Thanks in advance

I didn't offer specific ones I don't think because I couldn't decide what was "fair" in my head. So I leave it that part up to you! If you have any suggestions or any comments after playing please let me know!

Hellu, I am writing on a tiny Strixhaven mini-podcast series and I wanted to ask if you would give me your permission to mention stuff (mostly teachers and classes) from your supplement. Of course with a link to the DMsGuild pdf and mention in the description.

Hi! I bought all the volumes, they are great! However, there's a msiteake in pages 15 and 23 of the printer firendly Volume 1 document, where some colums show on the right limit of the page and part of them are left out. Can you confirm if this is just for me or is it general? Thanks and very cool additions again!

You wrote that one class has the same rewards like Magical Physiologies. I'm unable to find the rewards for the original course. What are they?

Hey Eike! Students who ace the various exams in that course get advantage when attacking the creatures from those exams. I think it's chimera, owlbears, and slaadi that are featured in the book.

Is there any possibility of getting this in a printer friendly version? Reading this much text on screen is real tough on my eyes! If not I totally get it, from what ive made it through so far its great!

Hey Cory! Sorry for my ignorance here but are you not able to just download the PDF and print from there? I'm able to using the same file I've been uploading to DMsGuild.

If you can't, let me know and I can look into sending you copies of the files on Google drive or something!

I apologize, I was not very clear about what I meant! For some supplements that ive gotten in the past the creators also had PDFs that were text only since printing off the pages with the stylized background uses up a ton of extra ink. If you dont have those available I understand, thats potentially a lot of work I could be asking you to do! Again, the supplements youve put out for Strixhaven have been a wonderful read and I cant wait to integrate them into my upcoming campaign.

Quick question; this has both a 1.5 and a 1.6 version available for download, any particular reason?
Customer avatar
Alex C January 08, 2022 3:50 am UTC

Because I forgot to remove the 1.5 version haha. Sorry about that. The higher number is the most recent version. Update notes should be in your library I believe.

Update notes... in library... right. Because I knew that and don't just immediately download everything upon purchase and run away with them cackling with glee as I prep late into the moonlight hours as if I have stolen something. Lol

Thanks for the answer! I figured that was the case but thought there was a chance that the newer update had unreliable material or something.

Hey love the content and am using it actively in my Strixhaen game!

None of the parts of this series allow for a CTRL+F or any other search function, they are formatted in a way that makes trying to find and reference info incredibly difficult and a headache, is there something that can be done about this?

Hey I'm loving your Strixhaven stuff! Looking forward to volume 3!

I'm having troubles getting a list of Classes or Extracurriculars in front of my players though. I can't exactly show the players your PDF as it has a bit of DM-only info, however the text of the pdf doesn't seem to be highlightable, so I can't copy/paste the names out of the doc to make a "Course Catalog" for my players. Suggestions?

Hi Alex!

Just wrote a rave review for you because I enjoy your product. As I make my way through Volumes 2 and 4, I'll be back to talk them up as well. Question for you: what changed between 1.3 and 1.5?
Customer avatar
Alex C December 23, 2021 1:28 am UTC
CREATOR
Thanks Ty! In 1.5 I corrected a few grammatical errors and added labs for third-year Witherbloom classes as this was missing.

Thank you for the review! You make some great points! I really wanted to add art but Dmsguild currently does not allow Strixhaven MTG art to be used and im no artist. I'm hoping the funds from sales will be enough to commission art for the new professors and I hope to make those available to folks in the future!

Also it's different pieces of the bigger picture because I eventually want to combine everything I've been working on into one larger collection. I'm just pushing out the different parts as I finish them for folks who are playing the campaign immediately or for people who only want certain things. I'm really enjoying the work so far and I have several interesting ideas for things coming up! Thank you again for your purchase and review!

I bought both this Volume I and Volume II (Rulebook). I noticed the updated Course Catalogue v. 1.3 is under the Rulebook updated downloads. Did you consolidate these supplements?
Customer avatar
Alex C December 21, 2021 2:51 am UTC
CREATOR
No, that was not the intention, so thank you for telling me about this. I mistakenly uploaded the file with the updates for Pascal to that title. This has been fixed now. Eventually I will release a cheaper, consolidated version but that's probably a month or so away. I'm hoping to use the initial funds from these sales to commission art for the various professors for folks to use as tokens in their games.

Hi,

Thank you very much for this! Some of the courses are funny and add more flavor to the campaign.

In the "Third-Year Courses" section, you say students are still required to take at least 1 Lab. But there isn't one for Lorehold, or am i missing something?
Also when you say students may take 4 courses in one year, do you for example take the "Physiologies" (required), 1 College Introduction (required), and 2 additional courses in the first year?
So when it comes to testing would you test in this order?
1. Physiologies+Introduction
2. Physiologies+Course1
3. Physiologies+Course2

Thank you and Regards
Pascal

Hey Pascal, glad you're enjoying the companion! Thank you for catching the missing lab, looks like that made it through editing. The "Hoard of the Rings" and "Dying to Fight Another Day" classes are intended to be the lab offerings for 3rd year Lorehold students. I am working to update the PDF.

For testing you can either split it into 4 different time slots (Physiologies, Introduction, Course 1, Course 2) or, for shorter exams, combine the time slots. Some exams are quick, practical events while others are longer, written exams. Either method works, totally up to you (but I will likely be doing the second method in my own game so my players aren't robbed of their free time).

Format
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.
