The Complete Armorer's Handbook is a 5th Edition Dungeons and Dragons supplement for upgrading weapons and armor. Inside this best-selling DMsguild product is a comprehensive modular framework that allows characters to improve their equipment as they see fit by seeking out craftsmen and spending some coin!
