Welcome to the tenth book in the Loot 4 Less line, in which we deal exclusively with items that have a cost to consumer of 2,500 gp or less. And to increase the level of difficulty in terms of providing you with low-cost items, we also don’t deal in one-shot (or even two- or three-shot) magic items.

Here in Volume X: Fezzes Are Cool, we’re looking at a narrow range of wondrous items that you wear on your head, including crowns, hats, helmets, masks, caps, and turbans.

Many of these items are useful for spellcasters (in keeping with the origin of such items in myth and legend), but at least a few in each group can be useful to any character. Everything in these pages has no charges and can be used in adventure after adventure. Additionally, these items are all of real use. No spot-on-the-wall spells stored in a wand with a switch. We deal only in things that are of at least some practical use. No one is going to kill a teammate to make sure they get the fez of escape from the loot pile, but is that such a bad thing? These items can flesh out the equipment lists of low‐level characters, can be found in treasure troves of mid-range monsters, or can be passed out as party favors at the celebrations of 20th-level wizards.

And thank you for the review!

I'm glad the fezzes amused, while still giving value as useful magic items!


Nice review, KTFish7! I'm looking forward to doing this one as well!

Totally caught the reference. Tucked the book away onto the wishlist for now.

Yeah, I think this was the fastest we ever settled on a name for a Loot 4 Less. Once it was suggested, we all couldn't agree fast enough.

I hope you enjoy it once you pick it up!

1 person marked this as a favorite.

Fantastic, I was hoping for a headgear entry! This is a perfect example of an item class the Loot 4 Less line is great for--most of the magic headgear is so lofty for folks to get a hold of normally. Up into the queue this goes!

Nice review, KT :)


And revewed here, on DTRPG and sent to GMS magazine. Cheers!

Many thanks for the review, End!


This is a fine product. It inspired me to pick up several more of the Loot 4 Less line. Well done.

Are you still doing these? This one seems to be the most recent, and it's over a year old.

Thanks Doug!

Certainly the line hasn't been cancelled, but sales did trail off for the last few books. I was trying to decide if I was flooding the market (how many low-cost, non-consumable magic items does a campaign need, *really*?), or if magic hats are just not going to be as popular as weapons, armor, rings, and other "iconic" items, or something else.

I welcome thoughts on the question, for that matter, as I look at what Rogue Genius is going to focus on.


If sales trailed off, then that suggests a slacking in demand. I didn't see any dropoff in quality, so I don't think it's that.

That said, I think there are still some slots left unfilled? (Slotless items, most obviously.)

Doug M.


I agree there are lots of design spaces left. But it's hard to justify the effort when sales are down.

I'll do at least one of L4L eventually, just to see if maybe hats are unpopular.

Though who can't work the word "tarboosh" into everyday conversation? ;D
