A Mortal's Guide to Meir

Watermarked PDF

A Mortal's Guide to Meir is a unique steam-punk setting for 5e. This one-of-a-kind campaign world inspired by Victorian literature is perfect for swashbuckling, science fiction, dark fantasy, mythic fantasy, mystery, or intrigue adventures. This 279-page book contains all the tools you need to make adventures and characters that would be at home in the books of Robert Louis Stevenson, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, H.G. Wells, Jules Verne, Bram Stoker, Lewis Carroll, Alexandre Dumas, Rudyard Kipling, and other 19th century authors.

A Mortal’s Guide to Meir includes: 

  • A world of steam, steel, and magic, with 9 separate nations and 62 settlements, each with its own unique adventure hooks.

  • Tips for creating different types of adventures that match different literary genres.

  • 40 new races, including half-races, monstrous and aberrant races, and planar races

  • 48 new subclasses, 4 for each of the 12 base classes, specifically designed for a Victorian steam-punk setting.

  • 1 new class, the Voyager, with 4 subclasses. The Voyager embodies the courage and adventuresome spirit of the Victorian protagonist. 

  • 153 new backgrounds - one for every possible combination of two skill proficiencies.

  • 26 new weapons, including firearms and explosives (and four new siege weapons).

  • Lots of new equipment, tools, and steam-powered technology.

  • 5 new mounts and expanded and refined rules for mounted combat

  • 15 new vehicles, including steam-powered vehicles and ships, and rules for creating custom ships.

  • 140 new magic items.

  • New rules for weather and environment, including 22 natural hazards, to make the wilderness a treacherous foe.

  • Stat blocks for 55 new monsters and 21 unique NPCs, along with templates to create your own combined creatures, elemental-infused creatures, celestial or fiendish creatures, steam-powered constructs, and arctic, sea, and desert creatures.

  • 87 new spells, along with special rules for discovering high-level spells and casting them as mass rituals involving multiple characters.

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.
