Secrets Man Was Not Meant to Know

Tomes of Ancient Knowledge introduces an entirely new flavor of magic for the 5th Edition of the world's most famous roleplaying game, especially a horror-themed game like the official 5E Curse of the Vampire adventure saga or any campaign exploring the mist-shrouded Loft of Ravens. This product details a simplified sanity system that enables your players to experience the slow crumbling of their grip on reality but without making their characters unplayable. It also expands the basic concepts of existing magic and how to reshape common spells into mind-bending abominations that anyone foolish enough to attempt can unleash upon an unsuspecting world. Besides these broader themes, Tomes of Ancient Knowledge brings you a trio of eldritch books of magic, each delving into a different theme, from the deranged poetry of pain in the Palestone Analects to the cosmic secrets of space and time in the Xanthuun Tablets and the crystalline record of a blood-soaked serpent cult in the Sarkulis Shards. With 16 brand-new spells and a bounty of unique magical mysteries, there is knowledge here, and power, but the deeper you delve the greater the cost, but is any price too great to claim the power of the ancients? Grab this 16-page PDF today, if you dare! 

This product is the latest in a series devoted to injecting elements of horror into your 5E game. We invite you to check out supplements like the horror-themed magic items of the Treasury of the Macabre and the creepy constructs found in Beasts of Legend: Construct Codex, as well as horror adventures like The Fiddler's Lament and The Murmuring Fountain (which also can be purchased together as the compilation adventure, The Haunted Hamlet of Raven's Hill ), as well as the rest of our line of 5E products for campaigns of every kind, from pirates to faeries, from the frozen tundra of the north to the burning sands of fantasy Egypt. 

We hope you enjoy using our products as much as we enjoyed making them, and that you’ll keep coming back again and again to Make Your Game Legendary!

Another excellent product from Legendary Games. See my review on The Baleful Coven. These are very interesting magic items and have very unique new spells as well. These will fit very well into my Old World Warhammer witch hunter horror campaign using [...]

Format
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.
