These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.

D\u0026D: Beyond Level 20 - Epic Legacy: Core Rulebook [Review]

D&D Fans Shouldn't Expect An Epic Level Expansion For 5E

Wizards of the Coast has confirmed during a recent press event that high-level and epic-level content isn't being planned for Dungeons & Dragons.

The Dungeons & Dragonsfans who were hoping to reach new levels and cast tenth-level D&D spells will be disappointed to learn that there are no plans for epic-level content for the game. The current 5th edition of D&D has rules for levels 1-20, but there is no content for what happens afterward.

In the old editions of D&D, there were books that had content for high-level play. The most famous of these was the Epic Level Handbook from third edition, which featured the nastiest D&D monster to date, in the form of the Great Wyrm Prismatic Dragon, which had a Challenge Rating of 66. There were also books like Deities & Demigods in the older editions of D&D, which gave stats to the gods themselves. It was possible for players to throw down with the likes of Thor and Zeus, though they weren't likely to survive the encounter.

Related: Will Dungeons & Dragons Get A 6th Edition?

The current 5th edition of D&D has been around for nearly a decade, yet it still doesn't have any content that goes beyond level 20. There is also little content for existing high-level play. It seems this won't be changing anytime soon. Wizards of the Coast's executive producer for D&D, Ray Winninger, was recently asked during a press event for Fizban's Treasury of Dragons about new high-level content. According to Winninger, this isn't on the cards just yet.

“So, we don’t have plans at present for a product that is fully devoted to high-level play. But, we’re going to support the full range of character levels in the products that we do produce. I think, on that score, what you’re likely to see is pretty much how we’ve handled high-level play to date. Nothing new to add to that, but we’re not going to move away from it either”.

Why Dungeons & Dragons 5e Won't Have Epic Level Content For Now

It's not surprising to learn that Wizards of the Coast isn't too concerned with high-level content. Very few players actually reach high levels by playing a long campaign, as the demands of real life often cut campaigns short. The majority of D&D campaigns consist of low-level adventures that try to pack in as much content as possible. Wizards of the Coast has tried to make its adventures as easy as possible to run, with campaigns like Icewind Dale: Rime of the Frostmaidendesigned to be as easy for DMs to pick up as it is for players to play. Free time is a precious commodity for many adults, so lengthy and complex D&D campaigns are often the first thing cut from the schedule.

The high levels of D&D play often break down into Dragon Ball Z-style blasting encounters, with a heavy dose of altering the fabric of reality itself, in order to gain a momentary advantage. These epic quests are fun for one-shots, but many D&D games are about the journey, rather than the destination. Climbing up through the ranks and fighting powerful enemies is often more enjoyable than playing as archmages or epic heroes, so it's understandable why Dungeons & Dragons books would focus on adventures on a smaller scale.

Fizban's Treasury of Dragons will be released on October 19, 2021.

EPIC

LEVELS

Adventuring options for levels 21-25,
For the world's grandest
tabletop RPG.

Contents

If you're using this doc, get in touch at [email protected], or at luuma-makes-games.tumblr.com - I'd love to hear from you!!! like holy heck, it is amazing to me that you're using this!

Epic Leveling

Rising the ranks from 21st level onwards

This document contains rules for raising your party from 20th to 25th level. I've assumed that homebrew subclasses and spells will have ticked off every possible idea already, and I've built the benefits around that assumption as much as I can. The level benefits are designed to have very little overlap with past, present, and future content. This means they usually provide cumulative bonuses, rather than alternative options.

Over this first two-page spread, you'll find all the rules you need to balance encounters and level your party up in these epic levels, followed by rules for learning epic spells, and then level progressions for every 5th edition class (including artificer) from page 5 to 16. Pages 17 to 18 include exclusive new spells for artificer, paladin, and ranger, and pages 19 to 24 include all the new 10th level spells, designed to create high-stakes stories and dominate your foes.

Past 23rd level, you'll enter an entirely new tier of power. At epic levels, trust is an illusion, and the gods are prey.

Epic Experience

Creatures advance to these epic levels levels after meeting the following experience thresholds. You can choose to use slow or fast advancement.

The normal progression will level the party up about once every 6 encounters.

Epic Character Advancement
Experience PointsLevel Reached
355,00020th
410,00021st
480,00022nd
560,00023rd
650,00024th
750,00025th

Alternatively, the following progression is designed to draw out each level to last around 2 adventuring days.

This progression is designed to be used in conjunction with Blessings, Marks of Prestige, and Epic Boons. You choose what sort of boon to offer when a boon is given. You can also choose not to give a boon.

Encounter XP Thresholds

When balancing encounters, you can determine the maximum XP thresholds for each character in the XP Thresholds by Epic Level table. There is one XP threshold for each encounter difficulty.

The final column gives thresholds for the adventuring day Assuming typical adventuring conditions and average luck, most parties can manage the following total XP thresholds for a full adventuring day. This is equivalent to about six to eight medium or hard encounters (two between each period of rest), or three deadly encounters (one between each period of rest)

Each useful boon cumulatively increases the XP threshold of encounters by about 500 (for easy or medium) or about 1000 (for hard or deadly)

XP Thresholds by Epic Level

25th4,4008,80013,30020,00060,000

Encounter and Milestone system

Alternately, you can forego bothering with experience and use the following easy tables to determine character matchups based on CR. When using this system, you'll grant them experience that will level the party up roughly once every six encounters. You might choose to alternate between boons and levels every six encounters.

The Epic Solo Monster Challenge Rating gives the optimal challenge rating for an encounter with a single monster (roughly hard to deadly in difficulty), based on the number of characters in the party. The party is assumed to share the same level.

Each useful boon cumulatively increases the encounter CR. Increase the CR by half the average number of useful boons per character (rounded down).

23rd242526
24th242526
25th252627

The Epic Horde Matchups table gives the optimal challenge rating for an encounter with multiple monsters, where a certain number of monsters (one, two, or four) are assigned to each party member.

Such an encounter is roughly hard to deadly in difficulty.

Each useful boon cumulatively increases the encounter CR. Increase the CR by half the average number of useful boons per character (rounded down).

Epic Capabilities

Several additional changes are listed below to help make this adventuring tier feel as special as it should.

Learning Epic Spells

Historically, all spells above 9th level have been exceptionally difficult to obtain - they're almost impossible to cast or research, as casting them is often the last time the caster is ever seen. Your DM may choose to use a combination of the following optional rules.

Spell Creation. Certain epic spells may have to be developed from scratch. The process of development can be a time-consuming and expensive process. Creating an epic spell requires it to be on your spell list, and requires two other creatures with a feature that grants them access to 8th level spells to work together with you for 1 week, expending all of their spell slots each day. At the end of the week, you must expend materials of the DM's choice worth 25,000 gp, and each creature must then make a successful DC 15 (Arcana) check with their spellcasting modifier.

Once you have developed the spell, you are free to learn or prepare it. The other creatures that helped you develop the spell don't gain access to it.

Unknown Knowledge. The secrets to casting certain epic spells might be hidden or lost. They might be hidden behind a long paper trail of convoluted and indecipherable clues, maps and hidden charters, or sequestered in concealed castles guarded by planar beings, or guarded by a booby-trapped temple from a long-forgotten civilization whose collapse was ensured by the spell's first casting. Finding a spell hidden in any one of these ways will require around 25,000 XP worth of questing and adventuring.

Gifts from the Gods. The ability to cast certain epic spells might be bestowed as blessings from beyond the realms of mortals. A deity might offer such power as an offering of gratitude for service in protecting the multiverse, as a bribe, as a means to trick you into self-sabotage, or as a final, desperate attempt to arm you against a coming disaster.

Epic DCs

Epic levels increase your proficiency bonus above +6, which exacerbates some of the issues with saving throws in high level combat. Your DM may choose to use the following optional rule.

From 21st level onwards, all player character's saving throw DCs cease to increase with proficiency bonus. All saving throw DCs, such as Ki Save DCs and Spell Save DCs, are instead calculated as follows.

Save DC

= 14 + your corresponding modifier

Other Expanded DMG Tables

Certain optional tables in the DMG only go up to 20th level. Here are additional rows to append these tables, which cover the epic levels.

Starting At Higher Level (p38). As with 17th–20th level, but with 25,000 gp rather than 20,000 gp, and with one additional uncommon item.

Damage Severity (p121 and p249). Setback: 14d10, Dangerous: 22d10, Deadly: 28d10.

Training to Gain Levels (p131). As with 17th–20th level.

Proficiency Die (p263). 21st-24th: 2d6, 25th: 1d8 + 1d6

Spell Point Cost (p288). 10th-level spell point cost: 15.

Spell Points by Level (p289). 21st-22nd: 142, 23rd: 157


Each class is given with a corresponding table, describing the effects it gains beyond 20th level.

Shatter The Weak

Beginning at 21st level, damage you take from creatures of CR 5 or lower is reduced by 20, and whenever you damage a creature of CR 5 or lower with an attack, you can choose to instead knock the target unconscious at 0 hit points.

  • Creatures you are grappling have a penalty to attack rolls and saving throws equal to your rage damage bonus.
  • As a bonus action on each of your turns while you're grappling a creature of any CR with an Intelligence score of 4 or lower, you can attempt a DC 20 Strength (Animal Handling) check. If you succeed on three of these checks against the same creature, the creature becomes non-hostile towards you, and you can use it as a trained mount.

Counterswing

Beginning at 23rd level, you learn to convert the momentum of your missed swings into devastating strikes.

Divine Proxy

Beginning at 25th level, your body undergoes a change as you are granted a sliver of divinity by your deity. At any one time after you reach this level, you can spend 1 week of rest, relaxation, and divine prayer in the presence of your deity and choose a creature type from the following: fey, fiend, or celestial. You become that type, replacing your other creature types. You can't choose a different creature type again. Your body may also undergo permanent changes, perhaps becoming flecked with scintillating colours or being permanently enrobed by an ethereal mist.

Once you have undergone this change, you also gain the following benefits. Your deity can choose

Divine Resistance. When you fail a saving throw against a spell of 5th level or lower, you can choose to succeed instead. Once you've used this feature, you must finish a short or long rest before you use it again.

Endless Divinity. When you cast a spell from your Epic Spell List that only targets yourself, its duration becomes 1 year. If the spell requires concentration, you must concentrate.

Demigodhood

Beginning at 25th level, you finally become ready to take on the responsibilities of divinity.

If you allow it, friendly creatures can define you as their deity, or as their otherworldly patron, when they gain their first level in the cleric or warlock class. These creatures are considered your followers You must intervene when a feature calls upon you to to intervene.

Additionally, as a bonus action, you can see through such a follower's eyes and hear what the follower hears until the end of your next turn, gaining the benefits of any special senses the follower has. During this time, you and your follower can hear each other, and you can expend a spell slot of 5th level or higher to teleport to a point you can see within 5 feet of them, regardless of thier current plane of existence.

You can also begin running some of your deity's workload in their place, if you and your deity so desire.

Taking over these tasks may require you to expend your power and spell slots in certain ways, or may require you to be mantled with minor divine capabilities of some kind. These might include the ability to manipulate the emotions of creatures on a certain plane, the ability to keep plants alive when they otherwise would not, or the ability to determine the approximate nature of the weather.

Tender of the Grove

Beginning at 22nd level, you gain the following benefits.

Natural Allegiance. All beasts are considered friendly to you, and you can communicate freely with them. Additionally, as long as the errands are relatively easy, your friendly beast companions will happily run minor errands for you, should you so desire.

Masterful Summons. Beasts can leap to your aid across any boundary. When you roll initiative, you can immediately gain the benefits of a conjure animals spell as if it was cast using a 3rd level slot. The spell lasts for 1 minute without requiring your concentration. Beasts summoned in this way are being teleported to your side by the conjuration, so they are considered beasts instead of fey. Your magic protects the creatures you summon: if they die, or if the spell ends, they are returned and reincarnated on their home plane at full health, and cured of all negative conditions.

Guardian Spirit of the Lands

Beginning at 25th level, druids find themselves comfortable to retire into the undergrowth as ethereal, totemic spirits, acting as guardians and overseers of the natural world, and rarely noticed by the realms of men.

You can use your Wild Shape to transform into a beast of CR 2 or lower. This special form lasts for 24 hours. While in this form, you ignore spells' material components, you gain telepathy out to a range of 30 feet, and you create an opalescent, silvery mist out to a radius of 5 feet that leaves you lightly obscured.

Using a special form continuously for a year makes the effect permanent.

Once you use this feature, you must finish a long rest before you use it again.

Warband. As long as you own one or more freeholds, you attract a body of six mercenaries (three CR 2 scouts and three CR 2 thugs), led by an above-average fighter (a CR 5 gladiator).

If the mercenaries die, you can attract replacements over the course of one week by investing 50 gp into expansions to the freehold for each replacement mercenary required.

Soul-Sundering Strike

Beginning at 22nd level, when you successfully affect a creature with your Stunning Strike, you can expend 3 additional ki points to knock the target unconscious until the start of your next turn. The effect splits the target's soul from its body, so it is aware of its surroundings while it is unconscious, but it is otherwise helpless.

If the target is on the astral plane, unless it succeeds on a Charisma saving throw, its silver cord is severed.

One With Ki

Beginning at 23rd level, you can use your bonus action to regain all your Ki. You have a number of uses of this feature equal to your Wisdom modifier, and you regain any expended uses when you finish a long rest.

Planeswalker

Beginning at 22nd level, you gain the following benefits

Navigational Mastery. You can cast the find the path spell once without expending a spell slot. When cast in this way, you can name destinations on other planes of existence: the spell may be able to direct you through a chain of planar portals leading to the destination. If there is no such path, the spell ends. Once you cast find the path in this way, you can't do so again until you finish a long rest.

Planar Survivalist. When a friendly creature within 60 feet of you makes a saving throw against effects caused by environmental hazards, such as slippery ice, extreme heat, the pervasive goodwill of Bytopia, or the mind-wiping effects of the river Styx, the creature can replace the d20 result with your Wisdom score.

Trailblazer. Friendly creatures within 60 feet of you increase their speed by 10 feet. Once an affected creature leaves the area, its speed remains increased until the end of the current turn.

Dominating Ambush

Beginning at 23rd level, when you roll initiative, you gain a special turn that takes place before other creatures can act. On this turn, you can move as normal, and you regain your action, reaction and bonus action. If you use this action to take the Attack action, you may make one weapon attack only, and you can't use the action to cast a spell.

If more than one creature in an encounter has this feature, they all act first in order of initiative, then the regular initiative order begins. If you would normally be surprised at the start of an encounter, you are not surprised but you do not gain this extra turn.

If you use the quickened spell metamagic on one of the spells, you cast both spells as part of the same bonus action instead.

If both spells require concentration, you concentrate on both simultaneously, and you can end concentration on one of the spells while maintaining concentration on the other. If your concentration is broken by any other means, you cease concentrating on both the spells.

You can cast this arcanum spell once without expending a spell slot, and you must finish a long rest before you can do so again.

Aura of Triage

7th-level abjuration, Paladin


  • Casting Time: 1 action
  • Range: Self
  • Components: V
  • Duration: 10 minutes

When you cast this spell, you create a cubic demiplane, 30 feet in each dimension, that is upholstered with paraphenalia representing your oath. Creatures within the demiplane automatically succeed on all saving throws.

Abjuring energy radiates from you in an aura with a 30-foot radius. Until the spell ends, the aura moves with you, centered on you. Whenever a nonhostile creature in the aura (including you) falls unconscious, it is teleported into an unoccupied space on the ground nearest the center of your demiplane. You can also use a bonus action to teleport a nonhostile creature you can see within the aura to your demiplane.

Until the spell ends, any creature within the demiplane can use its bonus action to teleport back into the unoccupied space nearest to the point it left. Additionally, when the spell ends, all creatures within the demiplane are ejected into the unoccupied space nearest to the point they left.

Battle Tank

6th-level conjuration, Artificer


  • Casting Time: 1 action
  • Range: 30 feet
  • Components: V
  • Duration: 8 hours

You summon a battle tank in an unoccupied space within 30 feet of you. Any creature with proficiency with a vehicle can drive the tank, and you are always able to drive the tank even if you lack proficiency with vehicles. When the spell ends, the battle tank vanishes.

The battle tank is a construct that moves as you command it. On each of its turns, it can't take any action unless you use your bonus action to remotely command it to take the Dash or Dodge action, or one of the actions presented in its stat block.

Disaster Defenses

7th-level abjuration, Ranger


  • Casting Time: 1 minute
  • Range: 1 mile
  • Components: V, S, M (carved blackthorn worth 50gp)

All structures within range become magically secured against natural disasters, gaining the following benefits for the duration.


Battle Tank

Huge construct, unaligned.

  • Damage Immunities Fire, poison, psychic
  • Condition Immunities Blinded, charmed, deafened, exhausted, frightened, paralyzed, poisoned, stunned.
  • Languages Understands commands given in any language.

  • Vehicle Construction. The battle tank's movement is reduced to 0 when it falls prone, and righting it requires a creature to use its action to succeed on a DC 20 Strength check. Additionally, when the tank is reduced to 0 hit points, it is immediately destroyed. Any creatures within the tank when it's destroyed are ejected into a random unoccupied space closest to it.
  • Internal Compartment. An internal compartment within the tank can fit up to 8 Medium creatures within it, and a shimmering magical field provides creatures within with three-quarters cover from creatures outside the tank.
  • Tank Treads. The battle tank ignores difficult terrain.

Actions (requires your bonus action)

  • Tank Shell. Ranged Weapon Attack: +11 to hit, range 120/360, one target. Hit: 2d10 piercing damage + 2d10 lightning damage.
  • Run Down. The tank moves 30 feet in a direction of your choice. If it hits any creatures during this movement, it can drive through their spaces. Each creature hit in this way must succeed on a DC 20 Dexterity saving throw or take 3d10 bludgeoning damage and fall prone.
  • The structures are filled with fresh air that constantly replenishes, and their interior is temperate and dry.
  • Water, mud, ash, and other debris can't enter the building unless it is being worn or carried.
  • The structures are immune to acid, bludgeoning, and fire damage, and to all damage from spells.

Casting this spell in the same spot once every 10 days for a year makes the effect permanent, with the material components being consumed on the final casting.

Meteoric Smite

6th-level evocation, Paladin


  • Casting Time: 1 bonus action
  • Range: Self
  • Components: V
  • Duration: Concentration, up to 1 minute.

You strike your target with a rocketing blow that has the force of a meteor, sending them flying.

The next time you hit a creature with a weapon attack before this spell ends, the attack deals an extra 7d6 fire damage to the creature, and you hurl the creature up to 30 feet towards a point within range. The creature is flung to the unoccupied space nearest this point, and drops prone.

If the point is on a creature or object, you can make a ranged spell attack against that target, using the creature you struck as a projectile. Both the flung creature and the target take 3d6 damage on a hit, or half as much on a miss.

Tanglebloom Arrows

6th-level conjuration, Ranger


  • Casting Time: 1 action
  • Range: Self
  • Components: V, S, M (an ivy root)
  • Duration: 8 hours

You enrobe yourself in conjuration magic allowing you to grow floral ammunition that explodes to ensnare its targets.

For the duration, you can use your action to conjure an enchanted piece of entangling ammunition in your free hand. You choose the type of ammunition that is conjured. If you conjure a second piece of entangling ammunition, the first piece immediately vanishes.

When this magical ammunition is used in a ranged weapon attack, it deals an additional 4d6 damage on a hit.

Hit or miss, the ammunition then transforms into a writhing mass of ensnaring vines. Creatures within 10 feet of the attack's target must make a Dexterity saving throw, taking 4d6 slashing damage on a failed save, or half as much on a success. Each creature that fails the saving throw also becomes restrained by the vines. A creature restrained in this way can use its action to make a Strength saving throw, freeing itself on a success. Each restrained creature is also freed after 1 minute, or if the ammunition vanishes.

Adaptable Plague

10th-level necromancy, Druid, Warlock


  • Casting Time: 1 action
  • Range: 10 feet
  • Components: V, S
  • Duration: Until dispelled

You create a spreading and uncontrollable sickness. Choose a creature within range. The target becomes infected with your adaptible plague.

While a creature affected by this plague remains alive, each other creature that spends 8 hours or more within 30 feet of it must succeed on a DC 10 Constitution saving throw or become affected by the adaptible plague too.

You grant the adaptible plague up to three symptoms of your choice. You can choose these symptoms from the eamples given below. At the DM’s option, you may also be able choose from alternative disease symptoms. The symptoms end if the disease is cured.

  • Choose one ability score. The target has disadvantage on ability checks and saving throws made with that ability score.
  • The target must make a Constitution saving throw at the start of each of its turns. If it fails, it wastes its next action doing nothing.
  • The target takes 1 poison damage each day at midnight, and it can't restore hit points by any means.
  • The target’s movement is halved.
  • The target has disadvantage on attack rolls.
  • A target killed by the plague is raised as a zombie that remains affected by the plague, and loses all personality, memories, and intellect.

When you create this disease, you can also choose any number of creature types to be immune to the disease (such as celestials or humanoids).

Casting this spell again makes any other adaptible plagues you have created vanish, curing each of their targets.

Conjure Dragon or Giant

10th-level conjuration, Druid


  • Casting Time: 1 action
  • Range: 150 feet
  • Components: V, S
  • Duration: Concentration, up to 10 minutes.

You summon a fey spirit that takes the form of a dragon or giant of your choice of challenge rating 10 or lower, such as a young red dragon, a young gold dragon, a cloud giant, or a fire giant. It appears in an unoccupied space that you can see within range. The creature disappears when it drops to 0 hit points or when the spell ends.

The creature is friendly to you and your companions for the duration. Roll initiative for the creature, which has its own turns. It obeys any verbal commands that you issue to it (no action required by you). If you don't issue any commands to the creature, it defends itself from hostile creatures but otherwise takes no actions.

The DM has the creature's statistics.

Contingent Resurrection

10th-level necromancy, Cleric


  • Casting Time: 8 hours
  • Range: Touch
  • Components: V, S, M (a sprinkle of holy water and diamonds worth at least 25,000 gp, which the spell consumes)
  • Duration: Until dispelled

You touch a creature, and it is marked with a permanent ward against death. If the creature dies while this mark persists, all traces of its body vanishes instantly; after 1 hour, if the target’s soul is free and willing, the creature is restored to life with all its hit points, and the spell ends.

The spell neutralises any poison, cures all diseases and curses, and reduces the target’s age by 10 years. The spell provides a completely new body, which appears in an unoccupied space of the target’s choice within 1 mile of the point at which it died.

Create Undead Thrall

10th-level conjuration, Warlock, Wizard


  • Casting Time: 1 hour
  • Range: Touch
  • Components: V, S, M (black opal worth 1,500 gp, and a special component that varies according to the spell version you chose, which is consumed by the spell)
  • Duration: Instantaneous

You touch the components and permanently raise them as an undead servant, obeying your commands to the best of their ability. Additionally, if the undead you raise has a spellcasting feature, it recovers its expended spell slots whenever it finishes a long rest. You can communicate telepathically with any creature you have raised with this spell while they are on your current plane of existence. The undead you raise act freely, unless you take control of them.

Each casting creates a "group" of several undead. You can raise additional groups of undead with multiple castings of this spell. Only one group can be forced to obey your command at a time.

Whenever you finish a short or long rest after casting this spell, you can choose to take control of one of your groups. Each undead member of the group is forced to follow all of your commands to the best of its ability. This effect lasts until you take control of a different group.

You choose which group of creatures you raise from the options below, and the group you choose determines the number of creatures you can raise with a single casting of this spell, as well as its special component.

Bone Naga. You can raise 2 bone nagas with a single casting. The material component for this spell is the skeletal remains of a naga, one for each bone naga created.

Crawling Claw. You can raise up to 20 crawling claws with a single casting. The material component for this spell is the disembodied hand of a murderer, one for each crawling claw created.

Flameskull. You can raise 2 flameskulls with a single casting. The material component for this spell is the skull of a dead wizard, one for each flameskull created.

Ghast/Ghoul/Skeleton You can raise 8 ghasts, ghouls, skeletons, minotaur skeletons, or warhorse skeletons with a single casting, in any combination. The material component for this spell is a corpse of the same general body shape as the creature you choose, one for each creature created.

Mummy You can raise 4 mummies with a single casting. The material component for this spell is a mummified humanoid corpse, one for each mummy created.

Deity Drain

10th-level enchantment, Cleric, Warlock, Wizard


  • Casting Time: 72 hours
  • Range: Unlimited
  • Components: V, S, M (an ornate deed bearing the target’s true name, worth at least 25,000 gp)
  • Duration: Concentration, up to 1 minute

You speak a being’s name at the start of this spell’s casting. When the casting ends, you attempt to fracture the being’s power to a point at which it can be slain. The target must make a Charisma check against your Spell Save DC. On a failed check, all spells affecting the target end, it is teleported into an unoccupied space of your choice within 10 feet of you, and it becomes leashed by three shimmering chains which bind it in place for the duration.

The chains are magical constructions of force, and have an AC of 20 and 100 hp. While they persist, the being can’t teleport, use portals, or use planar travel. If the being dies while chained in this way, it is permanently destroyed, with its essence being completely erased from the universe, and no creature can revive it by any means for the next century. The DM determines the being’s statistics. A demigod commonly has a CR of 26 or higher, and a god is very unlikely to have a CR any lower than 30, nor an AC any lower than 25.

This spell’s casting time will naturally require you to forego sleep for 3 days. Your DM may require you to suffer levels of exhaustion to cast this spell.

Déjà Vu

10th-level divination, Bard, Sorcerer, Wizard


  • Casting Time: 1 action
  • Components: V, S, M (agate dust with a total value of at least 5,000 gp, which the spell consumes.)
  • Range: 10 feet
  • Duration: Instantaneous

This spell targets you and up to ten other willing creatures within range. You transmit the souls those targets of back through time to a point between 100 days and 100 years in the past, arriving within their own bodies. Each target arrives with a strong sense of déjà vu as they remember important events that happened in what is now their future. The spell’s components are fully consumed at the point in time when you arrive.

Each target arrives in the same position, level, and physical condition as they were at the point in time to which they are transported. The spell doesn’t transport a target back in time any further than the date of their 13th birthday.

Every event that happened in the original timeline is likely to happen again in the same way as it originally did, but random chance is reintroduced if a target’s actions affect the event. For example, all dice will be re-rolled for any combat or game of chance that the players participate in. The new timeline can thus quickly deviate from the original timeline. The original timeline exists only in each target's memory, and is otherwise erased from existence.

Diluvial Torrent

10th-level evocation, Cleric, Sorcerer, Wizard


  • Casting Time: 1 action
  • Range: Self
  • Components: V, S
  • Duration: 1 minute

The spell instantly creates a 20-foot radius, 100-foot tall cylinder of enchanted water, located 200 feet directly above you. The water falls to the ground as part of the casting of this spell.

Each creature situated within 100 feet of the cylinder where it lands must make a Strength saving throw, taking 20d6 bludgeoning damage and 20d6 force damage on a failed save, or half as much on a success. Each creature damaged in this way falls prone. Objects and structures within the area take the same damage.

The 62,800 cubic feet of water then continues to spread, creating a wave of water that fills a radius of up to 1000 feet on the ground around the point where the water landed. The water can't move uphill from the point at which it landed, and fills in crevices with its volume. Each creature this wave hits must succeed on a Strength saving throw, taking 10d6 bludgeoning damage and 10d6 force damage on a failed save, or half as much on a success. Each target that fails the save is also knocked prone by the force of the water. Objects and structures within the area take the same damage.

The water maintains a depth of at least 10 feet over the area it covers. A creature moving through the water must spend 4 feet of movement for every 1 foot it moves. Creatures within the water immediately begin to suffocate, as the air is crushed out of their lungs.

When the spell ends, the water vanishes.

Divine Health

10th-level transmutation, Cleric


  • Casting Time: 1 action
  • Range: Touch
  • Components: V
  • Duration: 1 hour

You touch a willing creature. For the duration, you grant it the divine protective capabilities of a celestial being.

The target gains the following benefits.

  • It is immune to necrotic, poison, and radiant damage, and to bludgeoning, slashing, and piercing damage from nonmagical attacks.
  • It is immune to the charmed and frightened conditions.
  • When a creature within 30 feet of the target fails an attack roll, ability check, or saving throw, it can use its reaction to convert the failure into a success.
  • Whenever the target is hit by a critical hit, the attack roll is instead treated as a normal hit.

Dreamscape

10th-level illusion, Bard, Druid, Warlock


  • Casting Time: 1 action
  • Range: Self
  • Components: V, S, M (a net hung with ornamental beads)
  • Duration: 8 hours

The spell grants you the ability to walk through the slumbering consciousness of any creature that dreams, and to comprehend it.

For the spell's duration, you can spend 1 minute of preparation to enter into the dreamscape. Each creature you are touching is drawn into the regions of dreams, bringing along everything they are wearing or carrying.

The dreamscape is set out like a massive populated map to the contents of the planes, filled with a chaotic spectrum of dolls-house imitations of local masterpieces and dreamers' ideas drawn from those locations. The dreamscape has a fourth dimension: every planck length gap along this extra dimension corresponds to an entirely different plane. It is incomprehensible to any creature not affected by this spell.

Within the dreamscape, all distance is condensed. You can use the dreamscape to traverse any distance, and moving between any two points on any two planes takes no more than 1 minute while within the dreamscape. You reach the point in the dreamscape corresponding to your intended destination automatically while affected by this spell. Others can follow you easily.

You can use your action to exit the dreamscape. Each creature you are touching teleports into an unoccupied space at the corresponding location, bringing along everything they are wearing or carrying.

Creatures can't exit the dreamscape ceremoniously unless they are affected by this spell, but can use their action to make a DC 15 Wisdom check, exiting at the point at which they entered on a success. On a failed check, they arrive in a random location within 1 mile of that point. You must also make this check if the spell ends while you're it the dreamscape.

While you're affected by the spell, you can also use your bonus action to step through the dreamscape. You teleport into an unoccupied space you can see within 500 feet of you.

Grim Banishment

10th-level conjuration, Sorcerer, Wizard


  • Casting Time: 1 action
  • Range: 300 feet
  • Components: V, S, M (sulfur crystals and diamonds with a combined worth of 750 gp which the spell consumes)
  • Duration: Instantaneous

You teleport a creature within range into a state of devastating mortal peril. The target must succeed on a Wisdom saving throw or be affected by the spell.

When you cast the spell, you choose one of the following terrible fates. You can also design and create different forms of terrible fate, at the DM's discretion.

Nailed to the Sky. This effect actually places the target so far from the surface of the world and at such a speed that it keeps missing the surface as it falls back, so it enters an eternal orbit. The target is 15,000 feet from the surface of the earth. A creature with a flying speed can attempt to venture back.

Depending on the world where this effect is used, conditions so far from its surface may be deadly. Deleterious effects include scorching heat (or cold), and vacuum. A creature subject to these conditions takes 2d6 points of fire (or cold) damage and 1d4 points of necrotic damage from the vacuum at the start of each of its turns. The target immediately begins to suffocate.

Jettisoned to the Depths This effect drowns the target at the lowest point in the ocean. A creature with a swimming speed can attempt to venture back, but the area is difficult terrain, and is frequently barricaded by solid stone.

A creature subject to these conditions is squeezed and blinded, and takes 6d6 points of bludgeoning damage from the intense pressure at the start of each of its turns. The target immediately begins to suffocate, and may encounter with hostile creatures as it ventures to the surface. The area within 1 mile of the lowest depths is equally inhospitable.

Hurled into the Core. This effect entombs the target in the molten core at the center of the world. The target is around 4000 miles from the surface of the earth. A creature with a burrowing speed that can burrow through rock can attempt to venture back.

A creature subject to these conditions is squeezed, and takes 10d10 points of fire damage from the intense heat and pressure at the start of each of its turns. The target immediately begins to suffocate. The area within 100 miles of the core is equally inhospitable.

Living Hellballs

10th-level evocation, Sorcerer, Wizard


  • Casting Time: 1 action
  • Range: 150 feet
  • Components: V, S, M (A tiny ball of bat guano and sulfur)
  • Duration: Instantaneous

You surround yourself with a set of six encircling hellballs. The hellballs are fragments of magical energy: they don’t occupy their space and can’t be targeted, but they can each telepathically communicate their emotions with you. It is infrequent that a hellball experiences an emotion beside destructive glee. Each hellball lasts until it detonates, or until the spell ends.

When you see a creature take an action, you can choose to roll a d8 (no action required). If you roll a number that is greater than or equal to your current number of hellballs, one of the hellballs launches directly towards the target and detonates. Creatures within a 20-foot radius sphere centered on the target must make a Dexterity saving throw, taking 10d6 damage on a failed save, or half as much on a success.

You can choose the damage type of each hellball you create individually, from acid, cold, fire, force, lightning, or thunder. You choose which hellball launches when the effect activates.

Manifest Imagination

10th-level illusion, Wizard


  • Casting Time: 1 action
  • Range: 10 feet
  • Components: V, S, M (A shard of pressurised matter of the same type as the items you create, worth 1,000 gp)
  • Duration: Concentration, up to 1 hour

You pull wisps of shadow material from the Shadowfell to create any number of nonliving objects of vegetable matter, stone, metal, or crystal. These objects must be created to fit within a 30-foot cube within range, and the objects must each be of a form and material that you have seen before. You can create objects composed of multiple materials, such as a furnished house, a bridge, or a huge ring beset with a block of pure adamantine.

While the spell persists, you can use your action dismiss all of the objects you have created with this spell. If you do this, you can designate a new 30-foot cube within range and conjure a new set of objects within as part of the same action.

Using any material created by this spell as another spell's material component causes that spell to fail. Objects you create in this way are visibly magical, and shed a lustre of dim light out to a radius of 5 feet.

If you maintain your concentration on this spell for its whole duration, the set of objects you were concentrating on when the spell ends become permanent, and last until dispelled. Otherwise, the creations disappear when the spell ends.

Omniscience

10th-level divination, Cleric, Wizard


  • Casting Time: 1 minute
  • Range: Self
  • Components: V
  • Duration: Instantaneous

When you cast this spell, you mentally ask any question and receive a truthful, exact, and comprehensive response. You learn the response in an instant, unless the response would take more than 10 minutes for you to explain and comprehend, in which case you learn nothing. The spell can’t determine a creature’s motives or past thoughts, but you can use it to attempt to determine their past actions.

You can also use this spell to determine the most likely path of fate for events happening up to 1 day in the future. None of these are ordained to come true, but they represent the best guess that one could make if one was given a knowledge of everything in the universe.

Reverspell

10th-level abjuration, Sorcerer, Wizard


  • Casting Time: 1 reaction, when you see a creature within range cast a spell.
  • Range: 300 feet
  • Components: V
  • Duration: Instantaneous

You attempt to interrupt a creature in the process of casting a spell, perfectly subverting their attempt. If the creature is casting a spell of 9th level or lower, the spell fails, and you can immediately cast a copy of the spell as part of the same reaction without requiring components, and without requiring you to know how to cast the reversed spell. The reversed spell is cast at 10th level.

Soul Dominion

10th-level enchantment, Sorcerer, Warlock, Wizard


  • Casting Time: 10 minutes
  • Range: Unlimited
  • Components: V, S
  • Duration: 10 minutes

You attempt to temporarily take control of another creature with whom you are familiar (by observing or successfully scrying the target) on any plane of existence. If the target is undead or incorporeal, the spell fails. The target is aware of the attempted takeover as a strange, momentary tingling, and makes a Wisdom saving throw, ending the spell on a success. On a failed save, you are able to control the target’s body as if it were your own for the duration, taking actions, hearing, seeing, feeling, smelling, and tasting everything the target senses. You can still move your own body and take actions as you command the target

Once the spell ends, the target resumes control of its body, fully aware of all events that occurred, having been a helpless witness trapped inside its own body. The target can make an Intelligence (Investigation) check against your spell save DC, learning your name and general nature on a success.

Synthetic Lifeform

10th-level necromancy, Druid, Wizard


  • Casting Time: 8 hours
  • Range: Touch
  • Components: V, S, M (Spittle, alcohol, soap, clean salt water, and a stoppered diamond vial worth 35,000gp which the spell consumes)
  • Duration: Instantaneous

You attempt to create an infant of a new life form, designing every aspect of it. You determine its appearance, creature statistics, and entire biology: lifespan, age of maturity, its requirements for sustaining itself, methods of reproducing, etc. You don't determine individual characteristics or personality - only the general disposition of the species.

Your DM assigns a suitable CR to the creature. They may wish to use the rules in chapter 9 of the Dungeon Master's Guide, page 273, "Creating a Monster".

You then roll a d20 and add your spellcasting modifier: if the result is greater than or equal to twice the creature's CR, the creature crawls out of the diamond vial as a fully formed infant of the species. Otherwise, the spell fails. You may need to produce multiple infants before the species can propagate without your intervention.

You can also design a race with complete racial features using this spell. If you do, your DM assigns a CR of 5 or greater, as they see fit.

Finally, you can use this spell to create infants of any species that already exists, determining success using the creature's usual CR. You treat any particular race or lineage as a CR of 5.

Terraform

10th-level transmutation, Druid, Wizard


  • Casting Time: 1 bonus action
  • Range: 1 mile
  • Components: S
  • Duration: 10 minutes

You enchant yoursef with the power to mold the ground to your whim.

As an action on each of your turns for the duration, you can change the ley of the land. Choose an area of the planet’s surface within range that you can see, up to 500 feet in diameter. You instantaneously mold that area, creating slopes and peaks to your taste, and raising or lowering any parts of the terrain by up to 100 feet.

Your terraforming must obey certin limits: any cliffs you form must be no more than 100 feet tall and must plateau for twice as many feet as their height, and any other inclines you form must have an incline of less than 45 degrees. You therefore can’t cause the ground to fold back on itself, or use this spell to excavante caverns. Additionally, you can’t raise a mountain more than 3 miles above the surface of the planet, nor can you excavate a trench more than 3 miles below.

The changes are permanent, and occur harmlessly over the course of your turn. Creatures and objects within the area are raised or lowered harmlessly with the terrain, and the terrain doesn’t buckle or shatter as a result of this movement unless you intend it to do so. Rearranging the terrain might cause loose stone, water, or lava to descend in different directions over the course of the duration, however.

Your DM determines the ecological impacts of your terrain change. For example, you may remove a rain shadow, converting an area of desert terrain into grassland terrain over the course of the coming decades.

Trust

10th-level illusion, Bard, Wizard


  • Casting Time: 1 action
  • Range: Self
  • Components: None
  • Duration: 1 hour

Trust is an illusion - and with the inception of this spell, the universe becomes a fundamentally uncertain place, where nothing can ever be known for sure again.

For the spell's duration, whenever you fail an Intelligence, Wisdom, or Charisma saving throw, you can choose to succeed instead.

Additionally, divination magic, magic that would determine your alignment, and magic that would determine whether you are lying all return readings of your choice.

As part of the casting of this spell, you can provide a false explanation of your behavior over the next hour. When divination magic is used to determine your behavior, it instead returns readings based on the false explanation. For example, if a creature uses legend lore to summarise lore about you, the spell might supplement its summary with your false explanation.

Verdigris Wave

10th-level conjuration, Druid


  • Casting Time: 1 action
  • Range: sight
  • Components: V, S, M (a bindweed root)
  • Duration: 1 minute

A gigantic writhing mass of greenery and verdant life springs into existance at a point on the ground within range, and envelops the ground within a 500 foot radius to a depth of three feet. Ground within the verdigris becomes difficult terrain.

At the start of each of your turns after the verdigris appears, its radius expands outwards along the ground by an additional 500 feet. You can exclude one or more areas of any size within the spell's range from being affected.

The verdigris writhes and lashes out towards creatures. When the verdigris appears, and at the start of each of your subsequent turns (after it has expanded), each hostile creature within the verdigris’ area must make a Dexterity saving throw, taking 5d10 bludgeoning damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a success. Objects and structures within the area take the same damage.

Each creature that fails the saving throw becomes restrained by the tangle of greenery. A restrained target can use its action to repeat the saving throw, freing itself on a success.

The verdigris persists for 1 week after the spell ends, after which it decays away into the earth with permanent effects. Crops planted within this new terrain become enriched, and yield twice the normal amount of food when harvested. When the verdigris decays, it permanently enriches the terrain to become a terrain type of your choice, from forest, grassland, or swamp.

Wallmaze

10th-level evocation, Wizard


  • Casting Time: 1 action
  • Range: 300 feet
  • Components: V, S, M (A block of bismuth worth 100 gp)
  • Duration: 1 hour

As part of the action used to cast this spell, you cast the spells wall of fire, wall of force, wall of ice, wall of stone, wall of thorns, and wind wall. Each spell you cast in this way has a duration of 1 hour, and doesn't require concentration (the wall of stone can't be made permanent).

Each wall must be composed of ten 10-foot-by-20-foot panels, with the same thickness as is specified in their respective descriptions. Each panel must be connected to another panel from this spell, and can appear in any orientation you choose, as a horizontal or vertical barrier or at any angle.

Adventuring options for levels 21-25,
created for the world's greatest tabletop RPG.
Updated 18 Jan 2020 (Balance, XP, Dueling)

Rising the ranks from 21st level onwards

This document contains rules for raising your party from 20th to 25th level. I've assumed that homebrew subclasses and spells will have ticked off every possible idea already, and I've built the benefits around that assumption as much as I can. The level benefits are designed to have very little overlap with past, present, and future content. This means they usually provide cumulative bonuses, rather than alternative options.

Over this first two-page spread, you'll find all the rules you need to balance encounters and level your party up in these epic levels, followed by rules for learning epic spells, and then level progressions for every 5th edition class (including artificer) from page 5 to 16. Pages 17 to 18 include exclusive new spells for artificer, paladin, and ranger, and pages 19 to 24 include all the new 10th level spells, designed to create high-stakes stories and dominate your foes.

Past 23rd level, you'll enter an entirely new tier of power. At epic levels, trust is an illusion, and the gods are prey.

Epic Experience

Creatures advance to these epic levels levels after meeting the following experience thresholds. You can choose to use slow or fast advancement.

The normal progression will level the party up about once every four encounters.

Epic Character Advancement
Experience PointsLevel Reached
355,00020th
410,00021st
480,00022nd
560,00023rd
650,00024th
750,00025th

Alternatively, the following progression is designed to draw out each level to last approximately two adventuring days.

This progression is designed to be used in conjunction with Blessings, Marks of Prestige, and Epic Boons. You choose what sort of boon to offer when a boon is given. You can also choose not to give a boon.

Encounter XP Thresholds

When balancing encounters, you can determine the maximum XP thresholds for each character in the XP Thresholds by Epic Level table. There is one XP threshold for each encounter difficulty.

The final column gives thresholds for the adventuring day Assuming typical adventuring conditions and average luck, most parties can manage the following total XP thresholds for a full adventuring day. This is equivalent to about four to six medium or hard encounters (two between each period of rest), or two deadly encounters (one between each period of rest)

Each useful boon cumulatively increases the XP threshold of encounters by between 1000 (for easy or medium) and 2000 (for hard or deadly)

Encounter and Milestone system

Alternately, you can forego bothering with experience and use the following easy tables to determine character matchups based on CR. When using this system, you'll grant them experience that will level the party up roughly once every six encounters. You might choose to alternate between boons and levels every six encounters.

The Epic Monster Challenge Rating tables give the optimal challenge rating for an encounter with a single monster (roughly hard to deadly in difficulty), based on the number of characters in the party. The party is assumed to share the same level.

Each useful boon cumulatively increases the required encounter CR. Increase the CR by half the average number of useful boons per character (rounded down).

The Epic Horde Matchups table gives the optimal challenge rating for an encounter with multiple monsters, where a certain number of monsters (one, two, or four) are assigned to each party member.

Such an encounter is roughly medium to hard in "difficulty".

Each useful boon cumulatively increases the encounter CR. Increase the CR by half the average number of useful boons per character (rounded down).

Learning Epic Spells

Historically, all spells above 9th level have been exceptionally difficult to obtain - they're almost impossible to cast or research, as casting them is often the last time the caster is ever seen. Your DM may choose to use a combination of the following optional rules.

Spell Creation. Certain epic spells may have to be developed from scratch. The process of development can be a time-consuming and expensive process. Creating an epic spell requires it to be on your spell list, and requires two other creatures with a feature that grants them access to 8th level spells to work together with you for 1 week, expending all of their spell slots each day. At the end of the week, you must expend materials of the DM's choice worth 25,000 gp, and each creature must then make a successful DC 15 (Arcana) check with their spellcasting modifier.

Once you have developed the spell, you are free to learn or prepare it. The other creatures that helped you develop the spell don't gain access to it.

Unknown Knowledge. The secrets to casting certain epic spells might be hidden or lost. They might be hidden behind a long paper trail of convoluted and indecipherable clues, maps and hidden charters, or sequestered in concealed castles guarded by planar beings, or guarded by a booby-trapped temple from a long-forgotten civilization whose collapse was ensured by the spell's first casting. Finding a spell hidden in any one of these ways will require around 25,000 XP worth of questing and adventuring.

Gifts from the Gods. The ability to cast certain epic spells might be bestowed as blessings from beyond the realms of mortals. A deity might offer such power as an offering of gratitude for service in protecting the multiverse, as a bribe, as a means to trick you into self-sabotage, or as a final, desperate attempt to arm you against a coming disaster.

Epic DCs

Epic levels increase your proficiency bonus above +6, which exacerbates some of the issues with saving throws in high level combat. Your DM may choose to use the following optional rule.

From 21st level onwards, all player characters' saving throw DCs don't increase with proficiency bonus. All saving throw DCs, such as Ki Save DCs and Spell Save DCs, are instead calculated as follows.

Save DC

= 14 + your corresponding modifier

Other Expanded DMG Tables

Certain optional tables in the DMG only go up to 20th level. Here are additional rows to append these tables, which cover the epic levels.

Starting At Higher Level (p38). As with 17th–20th level, but with 25,000 gp rather than 20,000 gp, and with one additional uncommon item.

Damage Severity (p121 and p249). Setback: 14d10, Dangerous: 22d10, Deadly: 28d10.

Training to Gain Levels (p131). As with 17th–20th level.

Proficiency Die (p263). 21st-24th: 2d6, 25th: 1d8 + 1d6

Spell Point Cost (p288). 10th-level spell point cost: 15.

Spell Points by Level (p289). 21st-22nd: 142, 23rd: 157


Each class is given with a corresponding table, describing the effects it gains beyond 20th level.

HIGH-LEVEL PLAY in 5e DUNGEONS \u0026 DRAGONS - Web DM

Are characters limited to 20th level in 5e?

Currently the rules provide no provision for a character to progress beyond level 20.

With that said, they don't explicitly ban it, either, and as you've noticed, it would be simple to continue using a multiclass. The only things you would need to come up with houserules for would be proficiency, experience requirements, and multiclass spell slots.

Personally, I would rule that proficiency progresses according to the proficiency by CR table on page 8 of the Monster Manual. Multiclass spell slots could continue to gain 1 per level in the existing pattern (I can see it but I can't explain it) and experience requirements could continue to rise by 10000 every 2 levels.

Updated with the release of the DMG: The DMG includes suggestions for character advancement past the level 20 mark. This is the Epic Boons section on pages 231. The gist of it is that for every 30000 XP a character earns past level 20, they receive an epic boon. The list of Epic Boons is on page 232; they are essentially like feats, but considerably more powerful.
