Magic is difficult. Really difficult. Not only are there complicated incantations and gesticulations involved, but a wizard has to be able to draw power out of the very air while remembering to do everything just so. Failure generally means explosions. A large number of bright, if methodical, individuals who would otherwise make excellent wizards are locked out of their desired profession by these mental gymnastics that reward the quick mind rather than the contemplative mind. Luckily, there exists a path for them.

Rune magic removes the temporal connection between going through the motions of a spell and drawing energy from the air to power it. By etching, painting, or carving complicated runes ahead of time, a runesmith prepares devices that channel magical energy for him, thus rewarding the methodical over the agile. All a runesmith need do is pump the rune full of energy and aim.

This reliance on physical objects for spellcasting may be a bit of an Achilles heel, but it is also the means to a unique specialization. As the absolute masters of magic with and upon "stuff", the runesmith is an accomplished warder and manufacturer of temporary magic items. While he may not warp reality as does a wizard, a party with a runesmith will never want for constantly-shifting equipment.

Product Features

  • The runesmith base class, featuring a new system of magic with tiered runes in two styles of casting: equipment and projection
  • Three subclasses - the campaigner, the forgemaster, and the projectionist
  • Nearly 200 rune variants, ranging from boots that grant bonus kick attacks to a hat that unleashes guard dogs on command
  • Dozens of brand new runes to replace those that couldn't survive the translation to 5e. Many new 5e runes are made specifically to be abusable by a reworked subclass.
  • Nested equipment runes! Rather than grant a passive ability with some equipment runes, grant a charge pool that the wearer controls, effectively quantizing rune magic and giving those who wear your work an extra trick or two whose use isn't dependent on your action economy, but theirs!

Format

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.
