The Artificer's Guide to Magic Items

Selected Option:

Become the Engine of Adventure

The Artificer's Guide to Magic Items is a 5e game supplement available on DM's Guild for both players and Dungeon Masters. It's an expansion and fusion of the crafting systems found in the Dungeon Master's Guide and Xanathar's Guide to Everything.

It takes a layered approach to item creation that ranges from mundane, non-magical items to powerful artifacts — and everything in between.

  • 50+ pages of expanded item creation rules for non-magic items, magic items of all five standard rarities, scrolls & potions, sentient items, and artifacts.
  • Improve the value of gems and art objects, add new abilities to existing magic items, transfer abilities between items, and design new magic items from scratch.
  • Hire help in crafting or enchanting items, or engage your fellow party members in the process to create cooperatively.
  • Explore special crafting environments, tools, and components that can supercharge a player's ability to craft — especially if they are an Artificer.
  • Discover ways to integrate Artificer class abilities into item creation, granting additional time savings and reduced creation costs.
  • 9 new spells exclusive to Artificers to unlock their crafting and creative powers.
  • 15 optional rules to fine tune the crafting and item interaction experience at your table. 
  • 22 new magic items that include crafting aids and ways to give all four Artificer subclasses an extra edge both in the lab and on the battlefield.
  • Includes handy worksheets with step-by-step instructions to keep track of all the numbers.
  • Full-color artwork by Miguel Coronado III. (Absolutely no AI artwork is used.)

How many pages in total? This may influence whether I get the hardcover or not. (Sounds silly but it's true.)

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.
