Deep Magic: Mythos Magic for 5th Edition

Watermarked PDF

Unnameable Secrets of the Great Old Ones!

Some warlocks, wizards, and clerics deal with creatures far worse than demons and devils—malevolent alien beings from beyond space and time. These entities’ minds are immeasurably superior to our own. Their sinister, loathsome agendas challenge not only our sanity, but our very existence. And yet, and yet…the revelations they offer…

The 20 scrawled and creeping pages of Deep Magic: Mythos Magic bring the magic of classic cosmic horror tales into your 5e campaign, featuring:

  • Grimoires of the Cthulhu Mythos, including the Necronomicon
  • Rules for tracking the mental and physical corruption that result from learning Mythos spells
  • 20 new spells, including black goat’s blessing, emanation of Yoth, sleep of the deep, yellow sign, and more

As a Mythos caster you have the power to summon sanity-shattering servitors, warp reality, and even make the stars right again through force of will. The cost is too terrible to contemplate, but you will follow this path wherever it takes you, and face whatever doom awaits you at the end.

A sidebar hit piece - a poorly researched one at that - done by a person who has little to no understanding of the sociocultural realities that defined 20th-century America and its racial relations.
Was going to buy this title, but your (transparent) desire to placate a non-existent customer group of angry minorists made me reconsider.

I feel completely the opposite as the below commenter - I was impressed by how gracefully the author made time to cover an important and sensitive subject. A supplement like this is a fantastic way to educate the audience about the literary history and influences behind the subgenre. Honestly, more RPG supplements should take a more honest and critical look at their influences and history like this; acknowledging what parts of that history are no longer worth carrying forward, while also acknowledging that we all deserve to hold onto the good parts and keep having fun.

Love these Deep Magic supplements in general, and I love finding ways to drop them into my campaigns. The only things I would recommend, for Kobold Press and other 3rd party publishers, is to find ways to make it easier for DMs who own these supplements to share them with players. Since these spells won't show up on commonly used digital tools like DnD Beyond, it would be helpful to have a short spell listing PDF (by class/level) or...See more

Looking at the preview, I can't say I like the "Trouble with Lovecraft" sidebar. It seems wholly unnecessary, to me.

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.
