NOTE: The contents of this book have been updated in Monte Cook's Arcana Evolved, available from this site.

The release of Monte Cook's Arcana Unearthed challenged players everywhere with new options and choices. This sourcebook supports those options with more rules and provides DMs with supplemental material of their own.

The mysterious alabasts, marooned on this world for centuries, hail from a dimension unimaginably distant and command powers few understand....

Slassan are horrible amalgams of spider and serpent haunting the shadows-the legacy of a now-dead race that personified evil....

The mage priest makes pacts with gods and demons, using their names to fuel his magic.

This is the world of The Diamond Throne, a high-fantasy realm like no other. This is a land where giants rule, where the legacies of a shattered kingdom of evil are everywhere and magic can tame dragons with something as simple as a name.

Go Beyond Arcana Unearthed!

In this noble, giant-ruled land, explore the reaches of the Floating Forest. Discover the incomparable beauty of the magical Fields of Crystal. Learn the secret of the God-King of the verrik people. But beware the military might of the chorrim and the fiendish powers of the shadow trolls....

  • Inside this exciting new setting and sourcebook from 3rd Edition codesigner Monte Cook you'll find:
  • 8 new prestige classes based on the Arcana Unearthed classes
  • 12 new monsters
  • A multitude of new magic items that build on the new feats and spells in Arcana Unearthed
  • The basics of the Arcana Unearthed setting: the lands of the Diamond Throne

This book provides fundamental gameplay support for the variant rules of Arcana Unearthed but can also be used with any d20 campaign.

NOTE: The contents of this book have been updated in Monte Cook's Arcana Evolved, available from this site.

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.
