Crit Academy discusses Armaments of Legacy, a new Dungeons and Dragons DMsguild supplement to enhance your 5th Edition Game.

Don't outgrow. Evolve! Armaments of Legacy expands well-known magical weapons, armor, and spellcasting items, transforming them into storied relics that evolve and grow alongside your characters.

This product provides the following:

  • Every Item Has a Story: Integrate legacy bonds with existing tables in the Dungeon Master's Guide to turn conventional magic items into fabled armaments.

  • Not Just Another +1 Sword: Legacy items increase in power to match the experience of its wielder. Familiar items such as a sword of sharpness and staff of the magi have been expanded into upgradable items usable at any tier of play.

  • Customize Your Relics: Use the optional runestone and runecasting system to take control of when and how legacy items grow throughout your campaign.

Segment: Main Topic: Armaments of Legacy

Legacy items are extraordinary magical armaments whose powers evolve and develop alongside its user. Some are crafted by master artificers while others bear no known origin, their true history shrouded in myth and legend. They can be passed down through heritage or reward, gained through victory over a dangerous foe, or simply appear at the right place at the right time when fate deems it so.

Similar to any magic item, how they are introduced and used in your game depends on your campaign world and style of play.

Each legacy item has a list of special features that increase in effectiveness depending upon their power grade. The item's power grade is dependent upon the level of its wielder, broken into the 4 tiers of play.
