Command 700 New Spells for 5th Edition!

No matter how you slice it, magic is at the heart of fantasy—and nothing says magic like a massive tome of spells. This tome collects, updates, tweaks, and expands spells from years of the Deep Magic for Fifth Edition series—more than 700 new and revised spells. And it adds a lot more:

  • 19 divine domains from Beer to Mountain and Speed to Winter;
  • 13 new wizard specialties, such as the elementalist and the timekeeper;
  • 6 new sorcerous origins, including the Aristocrat and the Farseer;
  • 3 otherworldly patrons for warlocks, including the Sibyl;
  • expanded treatments of familiars and other wizardly servants;
  • and much more!

This 356-page tome is not just for wizards, warlocks, and sorcerers. Deep Magic also expands the horizons of what’s possible for bards, clerics, druids, and even rangers and paladins. It offers something new for every spellcasting class! 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 break down the walls of reality, or just bend them a bit.

Deep Magic contains nothing but magic from start to finish!

Does this book include content from the other Deep Magic books such as Time Magic, Dragon Magic, etc.?

Yes, it includes them, plus a lot of new content (a few hundred additional spells and new subclasses, familiars, etc).

Yes, this is a massive PDF and it is also available as a hardcover book (over on the Kobold Press Store, or at your favorite local game store).

Available now with a sewn, high-strength binding from a traditional print run, at the Kobold Press Store and better local gaming stores everywhere!

So, this material is over and above the common magic contained in the Player's Handbook?
Customer avatar
Wolfgang B September 14, 2020 4:42 pm UTC
PUBLISHER
Yes, this is 700+ new spells, none of them found in the Player's Handbook.

Stupid question, how much of the material is tied specifically to the Midgard setting? Also, could the spells be used without new subsystems? That is to say, are most of the spells tied specifically to certain subclasses?
Customer avatar
Wolfgang B August 26, 2020 5:22 pm UTC
PUBLISHER
Not a stupid question at all! Exactly none of the spells or subclasses are specific to the Midgard setting; this is a book for any fantasy setting.

The vast majority of the spells are tied to the core classes. There's a handful that are meant for particular subsystem but it's a vanishingly small number (this is mostly the rune spells and the heiroglyph spells, which are tied to particular feat prerequisities).

The book's development and editing was steered toward making it a resource that does not require any particular setting or any particular flavor of fantasy (it covers everything from dark and villainous to bright and heroic to silly/chaotic and so forth).

So I get this is both a niche and overly specific question but does this bring more support for the lesser used damage types like acid and poison?
Customer avatar
Wolfgang B August 26, 2020 5:23 pm UTC
PUBLISHER
It brings a little of those, but as you say, those are somewhat niche. They both do get additional support here!

Um this compiles all the old individual Deep Magic volumes and adds onto them right?
Customer avatar
Christopher J August 06, 2020 8:02 am UTC
Yes, it updates a lot of the pre-existing material based on feedback from players and further playtesting. They added some stuff as well, like some new spells and and few other things. If you have the deep magic series, this is a nice but pricey addition. If you don't have have the series, i'd recommend this one for the fine tuning and whatnot. the only things left out are ley magic and clockwork magic archetypes/deities. the clockwork spells are largely included, and there's an updated clockwork spell list for casters that incorporates a ton of time magic spells.

OK thank you!
Customer avatar

Can confirm that it compiles the 400-ish spells from the original series, and adds a ton of new stuff (about 300 spells worth). Also familiars, new subclasses, backgrounds, fiendish magic, spell variants, etc.

Did you guys fix the mistakes from the subclasses that got reprinted from "Midgard Heroes Handbook"? If the answer is yes, is there an errata PDF in sight for those that bought MHH?
Customer avatar
Wolfgang B August 26, 2020 5:25 pm UTC
PUBLISHER
You would need to be more specific. We fixed a LOT of things in this book.

There's no errata sheet for Deep Magic 5E yet, but we expect to publish one on or before August 31, 2020, on the Kobold Press store.

For example, in my physical copy of MHH, the Justice Domain Cleric gets the "Blade of Wrath" domain spell at level 3, but that one is a 3 level spell and clerics don't get 3rd level spell slots until they reach level 5, thus the cleric learns a spell they can't cast for another 2 levels.

It's a good book, with a decent amount of new content and a lot of updated content from the Warlock zine and individual Deep Magic books. The only thing I was disappointed by was the utter lack of ley line / geomancy magic and no structured clockwork magic beyond the spells and a perfunctory spell list. Otherwise, a very, very solid book and worth the money.
Customer avatar
Steve N September 14, 2020 3:29 pm UTC
Not particularly interested in the clockwork magic but, like Christopher, I AM interested in ley magic. What additional sources contain that?
Customer avatar
Wolfgang B September 27, 2020 5:09 pm UTC
PUBLISHER
That is specific to the Midgard setting, and is available in the Midgard Heroes Handbook and in an upcoming, detailed release covering just ley line magic, spells, subclasses, etc.

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.
