Lodrae’s Primer on Transmutation


This simple book is bound in brown leather with a brass clasp. Careful notes on transmutation theory in a crisp and precise hand occupy the last few written pages, after which there is a page stained with a dark reddish-brown smear. The rest of the pages are blank.


You can spend 8 hours meditating with this book to store transmutation magic. You can benefit from the book yourself or give it to another creature. A creature gains a benefit of your choice as long as the book is in the creature’s possession. When you meditate, choose the benefit from the following options:

• Darkvision out to a range of 60 feet, as described in chapter 8
• An increase to speed of 10 feet while the creature is unencumbered
• Proficiency in Constitution saving throws
• Resistance to acid, cold, fire, lightning, or thunder damage (your choice whenever you choose this benefit)

Each time you cast a transmutation spell of 1st level or higher, you can change the effect of this book if the book is on your person.

1st – Catapult, Expeditious Retreat, Feather Fall
2nd – Enlarge/Reduce, Maximilian’s Earthen Grasp, Rope Trick
