Legendary Adventures: Epic 5E

Selected Option:

I've been designing books for D&D 5E since the release of the Fifth Edition System Reference Document (you can check them out here) and the urge for even bigger stories finally reared a couple years ago. Since then I've been playtesting epic games with berserkers able to fell fortresses with one momentous blow, druids transforming into the land itself, and wizards reworking magic in the most wondrous ways! Now I've got a 128 page sourcebook that provides everything you'll need to go beyond the core ruleset—or to fill up the GM's toolbox with a host of new epic creatures if you're already there.

The table of contents for Legendary Adventures: Epic 5E

  • Epic rules for every character class—attack with devastating swiftness, transform into the land itself, see magic in all its intricate glory, and much more
  • 18 Epic Feats to choose from to customize your legendary adventurer. Transform one of your favorite magic items into a sentient creature, become resistant to types of damage, emulate the legendary resistance of monsters.
  • 10 Epic Hazards including antimagic clouds, wild magic zones, planar bleeds, and other environmental anomalies to keep battles exciting as the threat of foes increases. 
  • Over 50 monsters ranging from all-powerful gods of magic to the Four Harbingers of  the Final Judgment, assassins from the future, and elementals formed from lava.

Epic Archetype Support

Among the more painful decisions when making this book was how to approach archetypes for epic play. One thing that makes legendary adventurers so deft is that you gain *more* than one archetype for your class—your assassin can also become an arcane trickster, or your evoker can learn to master divination! But what of making archetypes themselves epic? At 25th and 30th level legendary adventurers acquire additional prestige, and at the GM's discretion they can also (or alternatively) acquire epic features for every archetype from the 5E ruleset. These epic archetype features are not included in the core rulebook because this isn't intended to be a lengthy tome but all 19,000 words of them are available for free at!

Are you talking about the sidebar on page 4?

Where’d Those Classes Go?
All of the core classes for Fifth Edition are here—there are just a few that are named differently: Barbarian → Berserker, Monk → Adept, Paladin → Herald. As this is an evolution of the ruleset, it would be absurd to not address other inherent problems with the game at the same time and changing these names is part of that process. Not everything can be fixed or is addressed in Legendary Adventures (looking at you, cleric and druid) but making an honest effort is the first step.

It's just what it says: in Legendary Adventures the barbarian class is referred to as the berserker, the monk class is referred to as the adept, and the paladin class is referred to as the herald. Barbarian, monk, and paladin are words that carry a lot of weight and meaning that simply have nothing to do with the game. Instead of continuing with that misleading trend, Legendary Adventures...See more

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.
