Encyclopedia of Magic

It ain’t treasure unless there’s some magic items, right?

This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, we talk about the Encyclopedia Magica, a four volume collection of every magic item created for Dungeons & Dragons, from 1974 to 1993. It is a massive and intricate undertaking, pulling from every TSR publication — including the magazines! In the days before the internet and searchable digital databases, the fact that this exists (and missed just one magic item) is astonishing. Easily one of the best things TSR ever produced, an epic imagination stoker and one of the few products that unified first and second edition D&D.
