Iskandar City Sourcebook 5E


Explore a wondrous new city in this sourcebook for the world’s greatest roleplaying game!

Iskandar! City of the Shining Spires! Where merchants are masters and coin is king, but thieves and assassins rule the night. Where gods and priests walk side by side even as unspeakable wealth peers down upon crushing poverty. Where guilds and great houses spar for political supremacy while fiendish hordes muster just over the horizon. Iskandar! Home to all that is wondrous, noble, and laudable, and to all that is lewd, wanton, and vile.

Iskandar City Sourcebook offers an in-depth description of this superb new fantasy city. Alongside the setting lore, this guide is packed with content that can be used in any Fifth Edition game, including:

  • 3 new races (Kith, Vargr, Vatborn)
  • 3 new subclasses (Night Domain, Bladedancer, Cinderwood Knight)
  • A uniquely detailed NPC generator
  • 100 city-based encounters
  • 19 detailed city locations
  • 18 character vignettes
  • 17 adventure seeds
  • Random tables to create taverns, ships, religious festivals, academies, guilds, and much more!

Welcome to Iskandar, the greatest city in the world!

Are there any plans for a full campaign setting to fill in the world map?

The new color map of the city is beautiful, hats off to artist. McAusland or Niederberger?

Love the product so far, with my only wish for there to be a potential physical print on demand version at some point.

(Honestly, the only thing that I was like 'really?' about was the wizards turning away when the city was assaulted. It would have been so much better in my opinion for them to not be stupid and actually help protect the city.)

I do want to give a shout out to the way you did the district sections - description, place, people, adventure, misc. - is such a great organization. The random charts are also really, really, good. I could see many uses for them.

So yeah, good product. It just needs a POD option. :)

I'm trying to figure out POD at the moment for my books as I certainly want to do it. It's just a lack of time on my part atm, rather than an unwillingness.

Thanks for the kind comments! I agree, it was very frustrating for many of the wizards to flee the city in its time of need - on the other hand, it has set up the rather intriguing Isle of Sorcery...

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.
