Deep Magic: Elven High Magic for 5th Edition

Watermarked PDF

Powerful Magic of a Bygone Age!

Legends say that the elves of ancient times could enchant entire cities, change fate, and even reshape worlds, with a power that nearly infringed upon the authority of the gods. These feats are unheard of today, and most non-elves believe elven high magic has died out. But this power still exists, as a closely guarded secret practiced only by the elves and their shadow fey relatives.

Deep Magic: Elven High Magic brings the secrets of high elven magic into your 5e campaign, featuring:

  • An Elven High Magic school of wizard magic, with new abilities including Ritual Focus, Bound Magic, Ritual Mastery, and High Magic
  • 17 new spells, including black swan storm, song of the forest, afflict line, cosmic alignment, and more

Let the dwarves bluster, and the humans swagger in their ignorance. You will reveal your true power when the moment is right—for with sufficient time, an elf who has mastered the secrets of high magic can accomplish almost anything...

Hi, some issues I have which I'd like some clarifications on.

For "Bound Magic", the way it is worded implies you must cast the spell you choose immediately. I assume it is meant to say "you may" or "you can" for casting the spell. Additionally, as strange as it would be to happen, it lacks any contingency for if a player hasn't learned any ritual spells which target an area.
Is it supposed to only apply to one learned spell, or can it be applied to any learned spell that meets the criteria?

Finally, Ritual Foci; when it says you can expend them two or three times between rests, does the user still need to spend 10 minutes re-making it every time they expended it?

I can't post my review on the product page, so I will do it here in Discussion.

"You can expend a spell slot one or more levels higher than the spell’s nominal level as you cast the ritual version of the spell,
provided the spell allows that as an option. The ritual takes effect at the level of the expended spell slot instead of the minimum."

Is this feature supposed to actually do something, for I cannot for the life of me see what that would be.
If you're using a spell slot to cast the spell, why wouldn't you just cast the spell as normal then?
Why cast it as a ritual, that only makes the casting time unnecessarily longer.

Good question. Consider this official errata.

Deep Magic Chapter 11, Elven High Magic, page 4, Ritual Focus:
Replace the second bullet point with the following: "You can expend a spell slot equal to or higher than the spell’s nominal level as you cast the ritual version of the spell, provided the spell allows that as an option. The ritual takes effect at a level one higher than the expended spell slot. You must be able to cast spells of the ritual's elevated level for the ritual to take effect."

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.
