Master the Building Blocks of Magic!

 

            Two wizards face off against one another, both attempting to cast the same spell. Their hands go through the complex motions as quickly as they can, racing to finish first while struggling not to let a single finger fall out of place. An apprentice attempts to cast a difficult spell for the first time, and stumbles to a halt halfway through—what was the next word? Ixos, or isox?—if he guesses wrong, the spell may go horribly awry. A kindly old hedge witch tells a desperate client that there is a spell that does what he wants, but in order to cast it properly, she will need a lily that bloomed on a grave.

 

            These are the kinds of exciting and dramatic moments that spell components have the potential to provide, but it’s not something you see very often at the game table, where spell components are often glossed over as though they were nothing. Pathfinder Roleplaing Game: Occult Adventures introduced two new types of spell components, and this book takes that idea to the next level by introducing spells with several new kinds of components, including:

 

  • Intricate components, which take existing components like verbal and somatic to a dramatic new level in exchange for powerful returns.
  • Energy components, which draw on the caster’s own life force to cast.
  • Sacrifice components, which require a live, intelligent sacrifice to perform.
  • Soul components, where a captured soul is needed to power the spell (whose effect often depends on the soul’s quality).
  • Terrain components, found in powerful spells that can only be cast while in certain types of terrain.
  • …and a whole lot more!

 

           

            Advanced Arcana Volume VI is more than just a collection of over 150 brand new, never-before-seen spells. It, like its critically-acclaimed predecessors, was specifically designed to challenge the status quo of the way that magic works in your game. But even above and beyond Advanced Arcana Volume VI’s numerous groundbreaking new spells that will have you rethinking what you thought you knew about magic, the book contains a number of expansive appendices on such topics as…

 

  • A selection of feats that allow casters to make the most of the new spell mechanics.
  • Several new and exotic familiars, including a brain in a jar, a magic mirror, and more.
  • A new archetype for each and every Paizo spellcasting class.
  • …and more!

 

            If you’ve already experienced one of the previous installments of Advanced Arcana, you know that this book is not to be missed. Pick up your copy of Advanced Arcana Volume VI, and change the way that you think about magic today.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
