Wizardzine #1: The Ocean Deeps

Each issue of Wizardzine dives deep into a topic of arcane interest, charting previously obscure occult waters to provide rich and inspiring detail for use in any campaign.

The theme of issue #1 is the magic of the vast, landless oceans and the abyssal depths of the seas.

  • 30 new spells, including boiling sphere, conjure land, ghost ship, hallucinatory island, and siren's call.
  • 12 magical tomes
  • 5 new magic items, including the gill symbiont and the solvent of aquatic transformation.
  • 3 new monsters: brine spawn, demon of the deeps, drowned dead.
  • Detailed information on Ephenedrine the Sirene, oceanic sorceress.
  • Appendices with tables for aquatic summoning and a complete sea wizard spell list.

Isn't there any more of these?

I'm afraid not. I had notes for several more issues, but other projects ended up taking precedence.

Which version of DnD is this for?

It's designed for B/X and Labyrinth Lord, but should be trivially compatible with anything up to AD&D 2nd edition.

How many pages? Following on your blog it seemed like a lot of content. :)

Hi John, it's 42 pages of content, excluding the Open Gaming License, etc. Yes, I got quite carried away with the oceanic theme! (I actually had ideas for a lot more content which didn't make the final cut in this issue, but might surface in the future.)

I'm not going to home print them but there'll be a print option here shortly. (The approval process for print products is longer.)

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.
