The Modern Grimorie


The needs of the day define the magic of the day.

In ages past, spells enchanted swords so they could slice through the ectoplasmic bodies of ghosts, torches were made everburning, supple wood was hardened to iron, and the speech of the dragons held ancient words of power. And while Modern Spellcasters might use the old magic, including using ancient spells their original creators never intended, the old magics have lost some of their luster in the modern world. What good is ironwood in a world where carbon nanotubes exist, how does flamestrike stack up against incendiary sabot rounds, and what good is the ability to sing the language of dragons in a world where the great wyrms are long since extinct?

The Modern Grimorie is a collection of new spells for use in any modern magic or sciencefantasy campaign, including campaigns set in any of Otherverse Games’ four main campaign worlds: Black Tokyo, Galaxy Command, Otherverse America, and Psi-Watch. Inside you’ll also find a selection of rules toggles that alter the way magic works in your campaign.

Original electronic
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.
