…is sometimes the most ancient. Drawn from the sweltering rainforests and dangerous savannahs of Nyambe, Ancestral Vault brings gamers a rich hoard of African-flavoured treasures and equipment. This 96-page perfect bound sourcebook describes mundane D20 System equipment, special and superior items, and magical objects of all degrees of power. Though designed for use with Atlas Games' Nyambe: African Adventures setting, these items can find their way into any campaign as exotic treasures from faraway lands.

Ancestral Vault includes:

  • New magical rings, rods, staves, wands, potions, wondrous items, cursed items, and artifacts.
  • Rules for magical games, Far Eastern prayer beads, and alternate magic item creation feats.
  • New adventuring equipment, tool kits, ship rules, trade goods, armour, shields, and weapons, as well as fixes for the lack of armour in Nyambe.
  • Rules for using natural medicine to create tattoos, ritual scars, and herbal concoctions.
  • Magic item tables for all the items in Ancestral Vault as well as those found in Nyambe: African Adventures.
