A system agnostic magic item deck for TTRPGs

Medieval Magic Item Cards for D&D, Pathfinder, and TTRPGS

BRING SOMETHING MEDIEVAL TO YOUR TABLE

Pulled directly from the colorful pages of manuscripts, the Marginal Worlds Magic Item Deck brings the magic and mystery of the medieval world to your table.

This deck features 50 playable, hand-illustrated magic items and a Game Master’s Guide to match. Each item is a real-life artifact or magic item found in a medieval manuscript. Plus, Marginal Worlds magic items are D&D 5e-compatible AND system-agnostic - you can use the deck in any TTRPG system, no fuss!

Our GDC & Peabody award-winning, Nebula & BAFTA nominated team of medievalists, game designers, and artists have ensured each magical item stays true to its medieval roots. Each item is adapted to system-agnostic TTRPG play, so you can bring these items with you into any campaign setting.

Join us in bringing the magic of the medieval world to your TTRPG sessions. Back our project today and add the Marginal Worlds Magic Item Deck to your game collection!
