Traveler's Guide to Mithras Forest


The Traveler’s Guide to the forest of the Fey Queen is a ‘zine-size sourcebook (ish, they're actually starting to get bigger than 'zine-size these days) for 5e with new fey-themed sub-classes like the Paladin’s Oath of the Summer Court, devoted to the fiery passions of the summer fey, or the Oath of the Winter Court, devoted to the solemn endurance of the long night, or the Ranger’s Conclave of Fey Paths, allowing you to slip betwixt and between, using fairy roads to go from one place to another without touching mortal ground in between, or the Rogue’s Fetch sub-class, built especially for identity-stealing shapeshifters.

Like all installments in the Traveler’s Guide series, this one comes with a number of new backgrounds that give you something else to do with your hit dice, instead using them to cast spells, activate secret martial techniques, or permanently reduce them to unlock passive benefits like a new save proficiency. And no, reducing your hit dice in this way doesn’t reduce your hit points, only the hit dice you have to spend on other things. And you can instead choose to take an ordinary background from first party books and save all of your hit dice for healing. That’s kind of boring compared to the new backgrounds, but it’s perfectly balanced, so you can if you want to.

This guide also contains the first army of a dark lord. Similar to the army of Lumitas from the last book in the series, the Fey Queen’s army contains not only several new and returning stat blocks for the Fey Queen’s wood elves, werewolves, treants, and hags, including several action-oriented boss fights, it also includes for the first time the complete army of a dark lord, a full list of how many troops she has, how they are organized, and their tactical doctrine - how they fight wars, defend dungeons, and so on. As the dark lord of chaos, the Fey Queen’s tactical doctrine is more scattershot and disorganized than others, but her various forces still have a preferred way to fight.

And like all installments in the Traveler’s Guide series, this book contains an expansion of the Creative Commons Weskven setting. Mithras Forest, the titular Forest of the Fey Queen, is a new region in the high fantasy setting of Weskven suitable for use with D&D or any other elves-and-dragons dungeon crawly kind of game, and like every other region introduced in the Traveler’s Guide series going back to May of 2022, it is released under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International license, the same license the SRD 5.1 was released under. The Creative Commons content from the first five books is linked in the transcript below. The Creative Commons version is a boring .pdf with no illustrations and the version in the books is properly formatted and illustrated and stuff, but the content is available for anyone to use.

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.
