Mysteries of the Mists: Monsters, Spells, and Magic Items for 5e

Watermarked PDF

Ten new monsters to challenge your players with, four new spells to encourage greater creativity in play, and 16 new magic items to get characters into and out of trouble

Three horrifying monsters from my recent 5e horror module The Howling Caverns:

  • The Gharblest (CR 3): A terrifying mix of the ruthless ferocity of a goblin and the raw power of a Barghest
  • Qalupalik (CR 3): Slinking from the frozen sea to drag unsuspecting prey into the endless abyss
  • Wereowl (CR 1): Swift and merciless but easily distracted by shiny things

And seven appearing in the follow-up Colossus Wake:

  • Chittering mimic (CR 4): A terrifyingly nimble mimic variant that unleashes a stream of disorienting gibberish
  • Gelatinous pond (CR 4): Rarer and deadlier than their cuboid relations, able to hide in plain sight for years before striking
  • The Scarlet Jack (CR 21): The manifestation of a broken vow, heartless and unstoppable
  • Sendrak (CR 10): Nightmare made flesh in the twisted form of a dragon
  • Silvertongue (CR 5): Charming half-devil specialising in intrigue and subterfuge
  • Traitor’s Heart (CR 4): A black heart twisted by betrayal refuses to die; the heartbeat of death approaches
  • Violet pudding (CR 4): Magical corruption taken physical form, spreads chaos and death

Four versatile new spells:

  • Song of Steel (2nd)
  • Speak with Stone (1st)
  • Temper Weapon (2nd)
  • Words Take Flight (1st)
16 remarkable magic items:
  • Blade of the Norns: A sickle with the power to snip the threads of fate
  • Coronal of Insight: Crown of an eldritch being of nightmare bringing with it the curse of knowledge
  • Egil’s Fury: Enchanted longbow imbued with frost, fire, and lightning
  • The Elder Horn: Summon an ally or broadcast your intentions to the world
  • The Eye of Dawn: A morning star forged by the Sun god, destined to burn the undead
  • Formless Clay: Shape a small ally to fight by your side
  • Hardened Heart: Once-living heart twisted and corrupted by hatred hardens your own in turn
  • Indomitable Greataxe: Conquer the demon fear and overcome all odds
  • Mirror Shield: Deflect a magical force and reflect it upon your foe
  • Radiant Sphere: Dispel the darkness in a crash of brilliance
  • Raven Dirk: Vanish in a flurry of black feathers and reappear to deliver a fatal strike
  • The Scarlet Jack: A cursed coin and manifestation of the cost of a broken vow
  • The Scintillating Wren: Summon an enchanted bird to act as guide and familiar
  • Truemetal Circlet: Bestows ancient magical knowledge and power long thought lost
  • Volundr’s Chain: God-forged iron chain said to summon a soldier of flame
  • Wings of Steel: Glide on the winds with these exquisite dwarven bracers

All of what you'll find here is also in The Howling Caverns and Colossus Wake; this file is intended for those interested in just the monsters and spells.

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.
