A Nothic's Guide to Improved Material Spell Components

Brand new variations and components for spells in the Player’s Handbook.

Discover the notes of a meticulous nothic, driven to answer this question (at all costs) for every spell that calls for material components!

Designed for both players and dungeon masters, this supplement expands the possibilities of the spells you know by using strange and unusual alternative components.

What would you promise a mermaid in exchange for a pearl that doubled your speed when walking on water and also let you walk on fog?
How far would you go to obtain glass globes crafted by a storm giant that let your lightning bolt bend or fork?

Increase player agency and demonstrate character interest through the variety of magical ingredients (including both narrative and literal seeds) and the use of customized magic. Spell lists are organized by class and level, making it simple to find the incantation you need.
