For generations wizards have sought ways to augment their already substantial magical abilities. Centuries of research has yielded countless new spells, metamagic practices, and even the discovery of cooperative spellcasting as a means for making existing spells more powerful. Now you can add even more power to your arsenal with Creature Components!

Harvest the essence of elementals, the scales of dragons, and the blood of genies for use in augmenting your own spells or take it a step further with mods to magic items, weapons, and armor.

Creature Components is a 58-page rule supplement surrounding the harvesting of specialized components, and their use in the augmentation of both arcane and divine magic. This book includes:

  • -  Rules for identifying and harvesting creature components

  • -  Over 100 creatures in the component catalogue

  • -  Variant Magical Items 

  • -  New Magical Weapons and more

    Within these pages are options for both players and DMs to add variety to treasure hoards, day to day spell casting, and even item creation. Magic has evolved...

 "There is narrative potential for years in the system presented here and I absolutely love it to bits. This book is stellar and deserves a final verdict of 5 stars + seal of approval, is a candidate for my top ten of 2016 and receives the EZG Essentials-tag". - Endzeitgeist's review of Creature Components Vol 1 for Pathfinder which was #5 on the Top 10 of 2016 list! 

Looking for the Pathfinder version? You can pick it up here! 

While art in this book is tame the content is part of Playground Adventure's 12 and up line and is not recommended for sensitive small children due to the graphic nature of harvesting creature components. Use of this product at gaming tables involving small children is solely at parental discretion.

I hope the publisher still reads this: For clarification, on pg 3 it is mentioned that if you succeed on a DC +5 you get an additional component. On pg 43 for competent crafter feat, the 3rd point is the same thing, so it doesn't seem like much of a benefit, but I feel I'm missing something. Thank you.

Is this the most up to date version or the other one I see two entries. Creature Components Vol 1 and Creature components Vol 1 5e. Is this one for 5e only and the other is more broad use?

Creature Components Volume 1 is for Pathfinder, this one is for 5E. Hope that helps!

$15 for 58 pages seems steep.

Yikes...the content sounds really interesting, but at $20 for 58 pages I'd want a softbound book at least. I've bought a number (a ridiculous number if I'm being honest) of 200+ page core rulebooks on this site for that price.

Fixed! Also, it should be on sale during DTRPG's Christmas in July event.

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.
