Strixhaven Prospectus


Welcome to Strixhaven University the premier institution of magical learning in the world. More than just a university, it is an academy of magic and wonder, and a cosmopolitan unto itself.

As a student at Strixhaven you will be learning more than just how to be a use magic, you will learn about history, art, and arcana. You will learn to brew potions that put a stopper on death, to use your wit and cunning in the heat of battle, and how to resolve disputes using diplomacy.

The Strixhaven Prospectus is a handout to be given to new players, perhaps in session 0. It is a chance to give the player the type of knowledge that their character might have.

In this version (v2) I have intentionally limited the handbook to information as per the Strixhaven module (with some license). A future version is planned which will include heavier modifications.

Other Strixhaven Resources:

Strixhaven Prospectus v2: A 14-page handout for new players, giving them the chance to know the type of things that the students would know. (published)

The Barbican: A vibrant social location for central campus, in which students are able to participate in faux combat battles, cheering on their friends, and being goaded into facing ridiculous monsters, such as an ancient dragon. (published)

The Strixhaven Rangings: Every year the students must range into the wider world. Away from the watchful eye of faculty, the rangings are a test of resourcefulness, students must use the skills and abilities gained during their time at the most prestigious university in the known planes. (published)

Upcoming resources:

Strixhaven Subjects for New Players: Developing a series of classes that could be roleplayed in a way to teach new players how to use aspects of their character. From VSM101, to Intro to Combat 101. Instructors give students practical instructions.

Strixhaven Subject Guide: Leaning into the idea the subjects should all give small rewards, and completely a major should ensure a boon.

The Strixhaven Mixers: A guide to what parties are happening, and when. How better a way to give your players meaningful choices than to throw raging parties the night before their exams!

The Strixhaven Calendar: Exam Dates, Holidays, Barbican Battles, Campus sports, and other entertainment.

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.
