Calpurnia's 101 Lesser Magical Items


101 magical items suitable for 5e Dungeons and Dragons, designed for lower level adventurers.

  • Low-power. A source of items to give to low-level adventures without fear of breaking the game.
  • Interesting. Low-powered doesn't have to mean boring. These items focus on giving heroes new options in their adventures, not just bonuses to rolls.
  • Variants. Most items have several variants -- ways items can be altered to be more powerful, less powerful, or just different. Some variants are cursed.
  • Background. Calpurnia offers insight into many of the items, discussing curious ways they can be used. DMs may find her notes inspire adventure ideas.
  • Bookmarks. The PDF makes full use of bookmark features, with every item linked. Also, the Table of Contents is clickable.
  • Gold Seller. In the top 0.75% of DMs Guild sales (as of September 2018).
  • Illustrated. Art by Togo Hornblower.

Pros: PDF Bookmarks for every single magic item entry. Many items actually care about a PCs skill level or modifiers. Every item has several variant traits that can be added for even more options. [...]

This is a very good and extensive selection of tier 1-2 magic items. Really like the fresh ideas in here, and the Variants (to make an item cursed, or just give you more options to tweak it). The writing in Calpurnia's voice describing most of the item [...]

Nice item selection, nothing too silly or over-powered, will certainly add them to my campaign! Love the suggestions for variants and background on some items too. Only improvement I would suggest is the addition of a simple D101 table perhaps? [...]

A very nice selection of interesting items. This will definitely help spice up low-level campaigns without the usual power imbalance inherent to most of the fun and flavourful magic items in the DMG. [...]

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.
