Book of Exalted Deeds

The definitive treatise on all that is good in the multiverse, the Book of Exalted Deeds is prominent in many religions. Rather than being a scripture devoted to a particular faith, the book’s various authors filled the pages with their own vision of true virtue. Providing guidance for defeating evil and furthering one’s self in this life to reach the light and gain higher insight to surpass one’s mortal shell. The Book rarely lingers in one place. As soon as the book is read, it vanishes to some other corner of the multiverse. Although attempts have been made to copy the work, efforts to do so fail to capture its magical nature or translate the benefits it offers to those pure of heart and firm of purpose.

Book of Vile Darkness

The Book of Vile Darkness is an ancient artifact and a work of pure evil. The wicked text it contains is an encyclopedic reference to every form of evil and depravity known to humankind. The pages of the book are made from a chaotic mix of materials, including parchment, cloth, and thin sheets of hammered metal, written in the handwriting and voice of multiple authors. The Book of Vile Darkness contains all manner of unhinged writings. Reputedly among its contents are dark and cruel spells, methods of ritual sacrifice, the secrets of Lichdom, names of forgotten dark gods, and forbidden secrets.


A creature of undeath that lives on drinking blood. Vampires are known as one of the strongest and most fearsome creatures that exist throughout Faerun. With their heightened senses, devilish charm, and enjoyment of the finest things in life; vampires find great enjoyment in undeath. Notable for their red eyes, pale skin, and other bestial features, the only thing that truly holds a vampire back is the sun and their own lack of ambition



 Werebeasts are cursed creatures with a part of their bestial blood always shown, even in their humanoid form.  Despite the similarities, they are distinguishable from Shapeshifters as the latter is capable of shifting into any animal at will; whilst werebeasts can only shift into a singular “were” form of a specific animal.
