10 New Magic Items for your D&D Games


The years die, burned to nothing by time, darkening my memory with their passion-like soot that builds upon a hearth beam. I am Mordenkainen, and although I do not look it, I am old. I have outlived rivals, enemies, and friends. I have lived long enough to see rivals become friends and friends become enemies-and to see enemies returned to the fold of friendship. But for a few dust-mad liches dreaming in their lonely tombs, my friends and I represent the last of the old guard. Who born in the last forty years can measure themselves an ounce of the worth of Otiluke, Bigby, Tenser, or Robilar-or even Rary or Evard?


Bah! What does it matter? I grow self-pitying as I approach the end of a century. Surely the young fools who test the wards upon my vaults are no younger or more foolish than my companions and I were when we delved into the dungeons of Castle Greyhawk or Maure Castle. They all have their reasons, just as we did long ago.


And what are those reasons? What draws adventurers today to plumb the death-trap depths of the earth and brave the terrors of curse-bound ruins? What called us to do the same in the past-and drives me still?


It all boils down to power: the wealth that can buy it and the magic that can wrest it from the ether.

-Mordenkainen, Magnificent Emporium-


The world of Dungeons & Dragons is filled with powerful wizards, dragons, and most importantly, treasure. One of the best parts of playing D&D is gathering lots of fun and powerful trinkets. Every adventure seeks a sword that can burst aflame with a word. A ring that lets them pass through crowded areas completely undetected and potions to heal their wounds. Below are 10 more fantastic magic items for your stories and campaigns.
