The Thaumaturge

Watermarked PDF

The Thaumaturge is a new take on magic for your OSR compatible game! 

Bored of the certainty of Vancian magic? Want your magicians to act more like the magicians of fiction and lore, where magic is risky and requires the caster to actually use time and tools to increase their chance of success? Then the thaumaturge is for you!

A complete 20 level class compatible with any OSR game, the thaumaturge replaces the standard magic-user. Their magic is difficult to use, often time consuming and inconvenient, but dripping with flavor. A bad roll can have disasterous consequences, while a good one can cause tremendously potent results. 

Learn any spell of any level you can find, but will you be able to cast such complex magic or will you destroy yourself and your allies in the attempt?

Also included are 6 new magic items and 2 new spells to use with the class.

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.
