Gothic Grimoires 1: The Necrotic Verses (5E)

Music and Madness!

The Necrotic Verses is a book of mystic secrets grounded in the corrupted composition of a musical maestro whose otherworldly obsessions drove him to madness and beyond yet left behind magical masterpieces like the Dead Man’s Frolic, Dance of the Empty Moons, and the Opus of the Golden King! Power awaits all who dare to delve into the sinister secrets contained within The Necrotic Verses! Grab this 10-page 5E supplement today and Make Your Game Legendary! 

In 5th Edition campaigns where horror, madness, or tragedy play a central theme, blasphemous books and tomes of terror often play a key role in unlocking sinister secrets man was not meant to know. Each Gothic Grimoire is evocative and richly detailed, with history and character that makes them far more than a collection of dusty pages that deliver intriguing possibilities for introducing novel applications of the rules of your favorite role-playing game. These are Tomes of Ancient Knowledge, dialed up to eleven.

The third in our line of Gothic Grimoires, The Sepulchral Swaths of Tanoth-Gha unfolds the lore of an elder cult devoted to primordial things venerated in the dawn ages of the humanoid races, when civilizations now thought ancient were not yet born, or taking their first halting steps of infancy.

Meditations of the Imperial Mystics

Meditations of the Imperial Mystics brings together the sublime secrets of joining mind, body, and spirit with the study of magic as recorded by the revered masters and their fanatical acolytes in ages gone past. Though fragments of their unattainable wisdom have survived in bits and pieces, the true original sources are accounted as great treasures among those who hold them.

Additional DescriptionMore Details

Rarely have their mysteries been unfolded, but gathered together they wait for you.

  • Body Outside Body, a teak-covered tome whose inscrutable diagrams unfold the mysteries of ki auras and their connections to knowledge, wisdom, fate, and the mind.
  • The Instructions of Yin-Blood and Thundering Yang, a unique inverting scroll that read forwards explicates the malleability of cool, yielding yin while read in reverse exposes the eruptive possibilities of fulminant yang, and the proper channeling of each power.
  • Prayers of Empty Flesh & Undying Ki, recorded on an infinitely unspooling prayer wheel that draws the mind and soul more deeply the more its chant is intoned, unveils the secrets of straddling the borders of life and death, of making transcendent spirit master base flesh.
  • Seven-Ghost-Needles, an academic and clinical treatise on the inner flows of ki through the body and mind and how to focus and channel it through the dantian centers of jin, shen, and wuji.


Inside this 19-page product you will find 18 ki-related feats, from Mindworm and Recenter Flow to Dream Travel and Aura Absolution, as well as 6 new spells, from paradox to steal dying breath. In addition, these tomes contain unique ki training and ability enhancement rules through the study of esoteric texts of the ancient masters, broadening the powers of qinggong while exploring the deeper connections of ki, magic, and mysticism, including supernatural acupuncture, internalization of extreme yin and yang, linkage of mind, spirit, and fate through spirit-auras, and the mortification of the flesh to span the threshold of life and death. This product is compatible with and expands upon the ki rules introduced in The Way of Ki but does not require that product for use.

Designed by Clinton J. Boomer and Jason Nelson with the Legendary Games design team of Matt Goodall, Jim Groves, Rob Lazzaretti, Neil Spicer, Russ Taylor, Greg Vaughan, Timothy Wickham, and Clark Peterson, with fabulous art by Frank Hessefort, Meditations of the Imperial Mystics is jam-packed with the kind of amazing rules content you have come to expect from us. Who better to provide you with innovative new rules concepts for your Adventure Path campaign or homebrew than the very writers of not only those adventures but also the hardback rulebooks for the game itself? Answer: no one. Legendary Games’ Adventure Path Plug-Ins supplement and enrich your campaign experience, offering adventures and supporting products that incorporate and expanding upon unique concepts, themes, and rules subsystems introduced in the Adventure Paths while filling in the background characters, items, and locations that make those adventures come alive in delightful (and often dangerous) detail. Legendary Games comb ines stellar writing talent with innovative layout and product design and top-notch artistic values that we think will bring you back again and again.

The Mad Doctor’s Formulary

Note: This product is a part of the Gothic Campaign Compendium along with several others.

Mad scientists are a classic horror trope, and The Mad Doctor”s Formulary brings them to life in a terrifyingly evocative way, focusing on all the awful possibilities of non-magical yet murderous medicine, sadistic surgery, and gruesome grafting. There are echoes of magic within these pages, as we explore how the cruel science of chirurgery and replicate or counter more common magical means of corrupting or altering body and mind alike with procedures like Implant Psychic Trigger, Lobotomize, Stimulate Adrenal Cortex, and Install Kill-Switch.

 

Additional DescriptionMore Details

Included within is a grimoire-tome, Regarding the Clockwork of Capillaries, explicating the application of chirurgical techniques not only to surgery with or without anesthetic, but also to the creation of chirurgical constructs. Implant a cyberphrenic tadpole and establish a subtle telepathic relay with your victim”s mind, or simply command your cranial dissectibot to strap them down and have them open wide; each construct”s vividly horrific illustration stands alone on its own page for optimal player display. Tell them not to worry; it won”t hurt… much…

Designed by Jason Nelson and Clinton J. Boomer with the Legendary Games design team of Liz Courts, Crystal Frasier, Matt Goodall, Jim Groves, Tim Hitchcock, Neil Spicer, Todd Stewart, Russ Taylor, Greg A. Vaughan, and Clark Peterson, with amazing illustrations by Tim Kings-Lynne and Frank Hessefort.
