Chronicle of Sorcery

Watermarked PDF

Compatible with the Sword Chronicle roleplaying game.

When darkest sorcery and the mysteries of magic are laid bare, such power will shake the lands themselves. Chronicle of Sorcery is a supplement that details the core mechanics for magical power into any game powered by the Chronicle System, providing the foundation for entire systems of sorcerous might. Includes the basic Sorcery mechanics, new Benefits and Drawbacks, Common Sorceries, and new Holdings for the Houses with magic at their disposal. 

Chronicle of Sorcery is the third of our Chronicle System series of PDFs, for use with the Chronicle System engine that powers our popular A Song of ice & Fire Roleplaying system!

NOTE: A streamlined version of the rules in this supplement is used as the magic system in the Sword Chronicle roleplaying game. If you play Sword Chronicle you may use this supplement or the system in the core rulebook.

For some reason, I cannot leave a review for this, so I'll leave it here -- don't buy this. It starts off strong, with high-level overviews of flavorful magic systems to use in your campaigns, and then stops there, without actually providing the arts and techniques needed to, y'know, USE THEM IN YOUR GAME. Basically, at most this book will serve as inspiration for the GM to create his own magic systems, pretty much from scratch.

So... does anyone have any interest or insight on finding out how to make balanced teqniques? If we can't have an official supplement maybe we can reverse engineer the common art teqniques to make ones for other lores.

I'm with you Robert. The lack of an update has surpassed any common explanation other than there is no interest on Green Ronin's side to continue with this. It's unprofessional. Even third rate companies give updates. I'd say ignore the reverse engineering and just have posts of everyone's ideas. I have one that I came up with that combines several old web posts, FATE derived ideas and some of my own twists. These were not play tested, and I played through personally with them and they're fun, but are not terribly balanced (and I wasn't trying to be TOO balanced...just trying to keep it in context). Not sure where to post them.

There is actually an official green ronin forrum for the chronicle system that is still running, perhaps that would be a good place to set up some homebrew ideas.

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.
