This article refers to the Dungeonmaster's Guide Boons, located in the "Supernatural Gifts & Rewards" page. For the Supernatural Boons that first appeared in Mordekainen's Tome of Foes, check Boons.

Building a reward

As with any Homebrew item, make sure you have reviewed the _Meta section. If your file doesn't have it, it won't work.

Basic skeleton

To start, copy the following code block and fill the empty "" values.

Reward code block
    "name": "",
    "source": "",
    "page": 0,
    "type": "",
    "entries": [
  • "name" — The name of the Reward.
  • "source" — Make sure it is the same as the "json" key in the _meta.
  • "page" — Page of the document the reward appears at (leave at 0 if not applicable).
  • "type" — Choose between one of the existing types, or use any other you like. Any string will be accepted, and will automatically create a filter for it.
  • "entries" — Consists of text strings ("") separated by commas.

Reference Tag

How to link to entries within the "entries":

{@reward <name>|<json_in_meta>|<optional_disply_text>}
{@reward Blessing of Health}
{@reward Dimir Charm|GGR}

Field List Sources

If you do not include the required fields (denoted with bold text) the JSON may pass JSONLint but will fail upon stitch.
