Praise for Jeff Gomez

"This is a 5-Star PDF, folks. ... this is one of the most creative & mechanically-sound 3PP spellbooks I've seen over the years... Props to Jeff Gomez for bringing all of these talented game designers together into a PDF that's easy to navigate and a lot of fun to read." 
   - B C C, on 101 Spells for the Common Man

"Haunting, horrifying, and darkly moving, Umelas might be one of my favorite village backdrops to set upon us in a long time."
   -Tyler E., on Village Backdrop: Umelas

"A ton of amazing adventure, unique yet easily usable in just about any context, a ton of ideas crammed into a precious few pages: This is glorious and epitomizes what the series should be about. My final verdict will clock in at 5 stars + seal of approval."
   - Endzeitgeist, on Places of Power: The Mistfall Refuge

"I love this dungeon. It's so cleverly put together, the levels are varied enough to remain interesting whilst still tied together enough to feel cohesive, and I'm super impressed with the seamless integration of a variety of skills into each level. It's inspired me to improve my GMing. I can't say enough good things about this dungeon."
    - Anonymous, on Jacob's Tower

"I adore this. I love it. I'm using the living hell out of it and wish this was a 200-page tome ... This belongs in the toolbox of GMs. Amazing. 5 stars + seal of approval + candidate for my Top ten of 2016. This humble pdf deserves to been seen, used and celebrated!!"
   - Endzeitgeist, on Letters from the Flaming Crab: Strange Weather

"The hooks are well-crafted and flavorful, the respective NPCs evocative and the additional considerations go one step beyond, making this pdf a truly inspired little piece of dressing, guaranteed to enrich any game. 5 stars + seal of approval for this very impressive and well-made supplement."
   - Endzeitgeist, on 20 Things #9: Bustling Marketplace

"This is why I joined Raging Swan's patreon."
   - Frits K., on Village Background: Skaalhaft

365 Magic Items


Benjamin Medrano has made something incredible with 365 Magic Items.

Inside you’ll find weapons and armor, shields and rings, rods, staves, crowns, and wondrous items of all sorts.

You’ll find magical sets, such as the celestial crescents and set of the fool. You’ll find sets of sin ranging from envy to wrath.

Within are weapons of incredible power, such as bonedrinker, blade of the moon, and the elemental wheel. Alongside them are commoner tools, such as the coin of good fortune and magistrate’s gavel.

Have a character concept? You’ll find something for it within. Need a campaign-driving MacGuffin? Try the pearl of life or crown of the necromantic lord (or dozens more).

Maybe you’d like an eternity seal to lock away a cursed treasure? Or an ephemeral breastplate for a quick escape? Or a clone amulet for the ultimate backup plan?

You’ll find all that, and hundreds upon hundreds more, within.

Enjoy.

Seven Bizarre Races

Let’s mix up the playbook.

The races presented within are more than just a collection of minor attribute bonuses and abilities designed to get a bit more damage out of a longsword. These races are unique, vivid, and bizarre in a balanced and instantly recognizable way. They change the game, and present an excellent, fascinating toolkit for players interested in variety.

With these bizarre races, nobody will forget who you are or what you look like. With these races, suddenly your game is new again.

  • BUNNYTAURS: Halfling-rabbit centaurs, quick and alert but gripped by instinctual cowardice.
  • KINDERCLOAKS: Plump, hooded shadows crafted from primitive magics that turn to petrified smoke in bright light.
  • MERRIEPETALS: Revelrous flowers which exude a certain allure which makes them irresistable – or is it the hallucinogenic spores?
  • MISBORN: Gangly psychopomp-touched humans with the ability to talk to the dead and see through planes.
  • PAINTERLILIES: Two-dimensional sentient paintings, with the ability to meld onto surfaces.
  • SHADOWFRIENDS: Frail fey giants created by a child’s wish, disturbing in form but remarkably kind.
  • BLESMOLFOLK: Sluggish, pain-immune mole rats, carving out vast labyrinths and dungeons. Blesmolfolk are divided between four distinct racial castes: industrious workers, crafty warriors, conniving consorts, and willful queens.

Maniac Character Class

Exploit your wildest emotions with the powerful maniac!

Maniacs are reckless arcane spellcasters that enter into an altered state of consciousness called rave. While in a rave, these rash enchanters draw upon a set of primal forceful emotions rooted deep in their psyche.

Burning emotions to fuel their magical abilities, maniacs harness powers that other arcane practitioners consider unreliable if not outright dangerous. Often ostracized by society and treated as lunatics by their peers, maniacs seek out extreme situations in which they can explore the full emotional array, drawing them towards a life of adventuring.

Included in the Maniac Character Class:
  • The maniac character class, a wild 9th level spellcaster that harnesses emotions as fuel.
  • 20 emotional raves for the maniac to exploit.
  • 5 Maniac archetypes: the affector, fractured soul, fury, korybant, and tempermentalist.
  • 7 favored class options, 3 magic items, and 2 maniac specific feats.
