Perilous adventures, deadly romance, courtly intrigue, and epic batttles await!

In the land of Escaliard, knights wielding shining crystal swords take a stand against evil and oppression.

Adventurers have the chance to win both glory and gold, but must tread carefully in this treacherous realm, where four knightly orders vie for power. 


Knights of the Crystal Blade is a book containing game material and two adventures compatible with the 5th edition rules system (5e).  

Here, you'll find magic crystal swords, knightly orders, tournaments, and tables for customising your mount, generating your own squire, and determining social skill failures (mirth guaranteed!) Plus forbidden magic, new monsters and mounts, magic armour and items, and setting material on chivalry, courtly romance, and the knightly oath.


The book includes two full adventures: The Grand Tournament, and The Battle of Fort Duskmark. These adventures are designed for 9th to 10th level characters of any class, while the setting and game materials are for all classes and levels. 


The book also features:

- Stunning illustrations by commissioned artists including Verena Biskup (The Dark Eye RPG), Daniel Kang, and others

- Visual player handouts (included as digital files to download)

- Print and VTT versions of the site maps and battle maps by e.g. Venatus Maps (downloadable in low / high-res)

- Detailed and illustrated NPCs: their agendas, secrets, and how to roleplay them

- An entire system of magic crystal blades of various colours with different magical efffects that level up with the sword's wielder


A couple of impressions from early buyers:

"This book has everything I need to supplement my campaign plus a lot more. The variety of stuff in here is amazing and especially the HORSES. Stuff that can really add depth to that animal handling character. A top notch D&D resource!!!"

"This is a well-done book and I already love it!"

"The book looks great!"


And to take the adventure experience to an even higher level:

I bought this one on kickstarter and it is a VERY good supplement to your 5th edition world. I would highly recommend it.

File Size:

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.
