Codex Vampirica (5e): More Vampires, Lairs, and Dreadful Items


As the thief moved through the dimly lit castle halls, they were saddled with the knowledge that something was terribly wrong here. They hadn’t found an ordinary noble’s manor: there were no windows or courtyards, and a horrible coldness suffused the air, as if the stones were leeching the heat from her soles. Where the thief expected to find mirrors, there were none: in their place, there were paintings of the lady of the house dating back nearly two thousand years, with no sign of age or decay on her features.

Perhaps worst of all, the thief couldn’t remember how she chose this manor in particular to steal from—she could only remember the lady’s charming face, the enticing sharpness of her smile, and the shape of the sun melting into the horizon. Far too late, she realized that she would never see its golden light again.

Codex Vampirica is a fully illustrated 30-page guide to vampires and vampiric creatures, including:

  • 14 new vampire stat blocks, from the beastly Bathemoth to the ethereal Vampire Mistlord
  • 5 horror-themed lairs fit for any gothic legendary creature, from classics like the Haunted Castle and Cursed Tombs to unusual and unexpected entries like the Mystic Caravan
  • 16 original vampire-themed magic items, both for undead characters and hunters of the dreadful night

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.
