Note: You can now find the magic items in this article as a part of 50 New Magic Items, a Pay What You Want product on the DMs Guild.

Last week had this blog’s most popular post by far. I created a list of 100 common rarity magic weapon properties which could be applied to any weapon for fifth edition Dungeons and Dragons. Since folks seemed to love that post so much, I’ve created a list of 100 wondrous items of common rarity which can also be used in your D&D games. If you’re interested in the guidelines I used to created these item, check out my post from last week.

    I am a little bit less sold on these items, though I am still in love with the concept. Having something that will cast “spare the dying” on you whenever you are in mortal danger, for instance, will basically make death saves not a thing, as I imagine that they will not happen more than once in a day (or maybe they will, but not typically…?).

    I also don’t know if I would divest the awarding of inspiration to an item, rather than for role playing purposes, but that’s just me.

    But I did like a lot of the more curious items, such as the belt of blind strength, the crown of humility, and the notebooks of message, among others.

    That having been said, I love most of these items, and with some tweaking, they will find their way into my campaign! I think that I may even work exclusively with items such as these to let the players ease into stronger magic items without the sting of finding only gold, jewels, and art in their loot.

    I like a lot of these. I think the only big tweaks I would make is rather than tie item refresh to a person resting, I would use Charges/Charge Refresh Rate. Charges feel more item driven, rather than a person sleeping, especially no attuned, to refresh it.

    Thanks for taking the time and energy to put these out.
