New Dungeons & Dragons 4E RPG Books

DUNGEONS & DRAGONS 4E RPG: MORDENKAINEN'S MAGNIFICENT EMPORIUM
Welcome to Mordenkainen’s Magnificent Emporium, a wondrous collection of magic items -- each one with a story to tell. This tome provides Dungeon Masters with a ready assortment of treasures to tempt greedy players, along with historical nuggets and alluring adventure hooks that set these items apart from your run-of-the-mill flaming sword or bag of holding. This book adds rich flavor to the treasures and trinkets presented within, and a dash of inspiration for Dungeon Masters looking to liven up a monster’s trove.

D&D 4E RPG: MADNESS AT GARDMORE ABBEY
This deluxe adventure takes heroes into the ruins of Gardmore Abbey, a monastery that was once the base of a militant order of paladins devoted to Bahamut. According to legend, the paladins brought a dark artifact back from a far crusade and stored it in their abbey for safekeeping, and evil forces gathered to assault the abbey and take it back. What the legends don’t tell is that this artifact was actually the Deck of Many Things, a force of pure Chaos...
