Metablades Expanded Edition


60-page PDF in 2 formats (printable portait and screen-readable landscape, both included).

Material from Metablades was selected for inclusion in "Monte Cook Presents: The Year's Best d20!" Thanks from everyone who worked on it to Malhavoc Press for this astounding honor.

Many wizards and warriors now learn to utilize both combative and magical skills, and a few, like the arcane archer, have begun to blend magic and combat into a single synergistic art. The skills and secrets in this volume will help you, too, learn what can be done to make your magical fighter or martial wizard into a distinctive, potent character with unique combinations of powers.

This expanded edition updates the psionic content for the rules presented in the Expanded Psionics Handbook, as well as presenting epic-level content and new feats, spells and other goodies!

  • 45 new feats including spell-powered feats for permanent arcane benefits, as well as martial arts styles for the magically inclined.
  • 13 new prestige classes for creating eldritch warriors.
  • More than 45 new spells and powers.
  • Over 50 new enchanted items designed for usefulness in combat.
  • Full support for psionic campaigns including psychic feats, classes, powers and items.
  • New epic-level material, including 16 epic feats.
  • Six sample characters to illustrate how the material can be used, suitable for inclusion in campaigns of many power levels.
  • Updated for maximum compatibility with both revisions of the 3rd Edition, including the expanded psionics rules.

Metablades Expanded Edition is the key to making your character more than simply a fighter/wizard or a barbarian/druid. As a guide to distinctive character creation, it is highly useful to both players and game masters.

"options are well done and can easily be used. The writers did a nice job on this using many areas of the game like psionics and epic rules to make their creations the best they can be." ?Crothian, ENWorld [***]

" intriguing sourcebook that allows characters to explore the possibilities of fusing spellcasting ability with fighting prowess if they wish to. The fact that psionics is included shows that psionics is a possibility to be added to martial prowess and bring the result to a higher level." ?maransreth, d20zines [83%, B]

Prefer the original Psionics Handbook? The first edition of Metablades is still available!

This guidebook requires the Dungeons & Dragons Player's Handbook, 3rd Edition, published by Wizards of the Coast, Inc. Players and game masters who wish to use the psionics material herein will also need the Expanded Psionics Handbook.

Fair warning: I found this book to geared far to much towards psionic characters and very little I would use for my own non-psionic characters. That said I am attempting to review it fairly in spite of my bias. In terms of value this is a nice s [...]

Metablades A little bit of magic or psionic power can go a long way. As most people have noticed within the game magic is the ultimate power in the game and psionics are not so bad either. They easily pass by the power of the fighters even those [...]

A fun book with a lot of options for a popular fantasy gaming archetype that sort of got "left" behind in the 3.5 upgrade. With this book, there is not just a handful of ways to make a fighter mage, but a plethora.<br><br><b&gt [...]

"Don't judge a book by it's cover" was never more true than with this product. Frankly, the cover sucks and looks amateurish, something a 13 year old gamer might come up with on his home computer for his home rulebook. That said, the inside [...]

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.
