600 New Spells for 5th Edition

Ultimate spell power is yours! No matter how you slice it, magic is at the heart of fantasy. Nothing says magic like a massive tome of spells.

This tome collects, updates, tweaks, and expands every awesome spell, cantrip, and glamour derived from years of the Deep Magic for 5th Edition series—more than 600 new and compiled spells by the best in the business, including Wizards of the Coast staffers and A-list freelancers. And it adds a lot more: 15 divine domains, new arcane subclasses like the diabolist and temporal magic, expanded familiars and conjured servants, wizard workshops, arcane traps, and yes, even more, new spells.

This tome is not just for wizards and sorcerers. Deep Magic expands the horizons of what's possible for wizards, sorcerers, clerics, and even for rangers and paladins. It offers something new for every casting class, from alkemancy to druid rituals, and from bard to warlock!

With these new spells and options, your characters (or your villains) can become masters of winter magic, chaos magic, or shadow magic. Seek out hidden colleges and academies of lost lore. Learn new runes, hieroglyphs, and cantrips to crack open the walls of reality, or just bend them a bit.

Deep Magic contains all magic from start to finish!

Viscounts of the West Kingdom

$55.00 SRP

Viscounts of the West Kingdom is set at a time when the King’s reign began to decline, circa 980 AD. Choosing peace over prosperity, our once strong King began offering our enemies gold and land to lay down their axes. But peace is a tenuous affair. As poverty spread, many people lost faith in his ability to lead and sought independence from the crown. Since finding favor in his courts, our future has also become uncertain. As viscounts, we must be wise and decisive. Loyalty is to be upheld, but gaining favor among the people must be our priority, should there be a sudden shift in power.

The aim of Viscounts of the West Kingdom is to be the player with the most victory points (VP) at game's end. Points are gained by constructing buildings, writing manuscripts, working in the castle and acquiring deeds for new land. Players begin with a handful of townsfolk, but should quickly seek out more suitable talents to advance their endeavors. Each turn they will be traveling around the kingdom, looking to increase their influence among the various areas of society. The game ends once the Kingdom reaches poverty or prosperity -or potentially both!
