Non-Combat Magical Items Deck - Presented by MasterOfDungeons.Blogspot.com

This is based on ongoing series of Non-Combat Magical Items from the Master Of Dungeons blog. Players love to receive magic items, and it's a great way to reward players for beating a dungeon, defeating a foe, or saving a village. However, too many magical +2 Lance of Goblin Explosion's can leave a party overpowered. This is especially true now in the world of Fifth Edition "Bounded Accuracy". There are 32 cards in the deck.

Some DMs have introduced something called "Mundane Magical Items" to their tables. These items aren't as strong as some of the glimmering, vibrating swords of the past, but they are still usually aimed towards a strong combat utility. 

I've decided to take things a different direction at my table. In a magical world filled with dragons, genies, and portals to another dimension, I believe that there would be items that don't feel most at home on the battlefield. These items need not be only trivial magical implements like self-writing quills, or mirrors to help a dwarf with his self-esteem, they can rival the power of their magical sword and bow brethren.

As an added disclaimer, I don't refer to these items as "Non-Combat Magical Items" in front of my players. The title isn't so much a rule as it is a design philosophy.

These cards can be given to your players when they find an item, and can also be shuffled to add randomness to your loot. 

Just because these aren't weapons or armour doesn't mean they aren't powerful, there are exceptionally strong items in here, like a sacrificial dagger that allows a user to absorb the powers of a dead god, or an amulet that prevents aging.

If this proves popular there are dozens of more decks to come. Please review and share with your friends.

Format
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.
