Kobold Press’ latest Kickstarter, Vault of Magic, features more than 800 new magic items for 5th Edition–come see what wonders await you.
One of the best things about Dungeons & Dragons is finding new magical treasures, but right now there are only so many you can find from throughout the various books. Kobold Press aims to change that by opening up their Vault of Magic and unleashing more than 800 new items on your campaign, including rules for creating your own items, something folks have been looking for in 5th Edition since day 2.
Let’s take a look at the latest Kickstarter, which is already more than 400% funded at press time, and still has 20 days left.

This grimoire of new magic items for 5th Edition campaigns brings wild surprises to your gaming table, from unknown potions, to fabled weapons and armor, to everyday magic that could become a campaign staple.
With over 800 items to start, many by leading tabletop designers and Kobold Press veterans, there’s something here for your game, whether it is a new game underway or a long-term campaign that needs a jolt of new inspiration—for both the heroes and the villains!
The regular edition of the hardcover features a durable Smyth-sewn binding, full-color printing, and hundreds of original magic items, plus tables for determining major and minor treasure placements that include SRD entries (so you can roll on the Vault of Magic tables and get an item from the Vault or from the 5E core items).
The Vault of Magic limited edition features a leatherette cover with two-color foil stamping, special endpapers, and a ribbon bookmark. Only a few hundred of these will be produced; they will not be reprinted.
But that’s not all, as this Kickstarter has already unlocked some serious stretch goals, and has a talented line up of guest designers whose work you’re familiar with from other 5th Edition products like Unbreakable Vol. 1, or from streams like Relics and Rarities. Check out some of the guest contributors.
