Expanded Options #06 – Items of Quality - Weapon and Armor Charms

The reliance on mundane equipment in 5th edition fantasy games is more important than ever. Magical items are rare, and most characters will be relying on unenchanted equipment for a large portion of their adventuring career. As such, there exists a gap between mundane items and magical equivalents. The concept encompasses a dynamic system for low-level powers that can enhance weapons without disrupting balance.

Consider the following items as not a replacement for magic weapons and armor, but to act as intermediary items that can make lower level loot tables feel more special and interesting. The best part is that they can supplement otherwise mundane equipment that is special to a character, such as heirloom armor or a sword that, while not magical, is made of a meteorite, for instance.

None of these charms are especially powerful or potent, and they won’t generally grant a competitive edge, but they do bestow interesting and character defining little tricks and boons that make your weapon and armor feel just a slight cut above the rest.

Does this include content from >> (5E) Expanded Options #04 - Items of Quality - Weapons? I am assuming it doesn't so how are these weapons different than those in #04?

These are weapon and armor charms. It's a new kind of magic item that allows you to attach a "charm" to a weapon or armor that will give that armor a magical benefit. This is helpful for those who have weapons and armor they consider sentimental or important, but aren't inherently magical. It is also helpful for fighters who might have a variety of weapons that they often swap out.

All of these charms, as well as the content from Weapons and Armor of quality are collected in the aptly named "Amazing Armor, Weapons, and Equipment for 5th Edition Fantasy", found here:

I only just noticed, but it appears that the price for that is the same as for this product, which may soon change, so grab it soon in case the price for the other work happens to go up!

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.
