Grimoire - Tales of Wizardry and Intrigue

Selected Option:

Grimoire PromoBox

In Grimoire you take on the role of a cosmically powerful wielder of the arcane, someone able to reshape the very fabric of reality to their very whim—a mighty master of the arcane.

That's what you like to tell yourself, anyway. The general consensus is that Wizards tends to be more like a natural—or unnatural—disaster in the making. They are buried in innumerable layers of paperwork, Wizardly law and bureaucracy, and that's on a good day. On a bad day you'll be forced on some kind of mad Wizardly quest, and that sort of thing never ends well.

Shouting panicked gibberish while waving pencils at each other has never been so much fun!

Grimoire - Tales of Wizardry and Intrigue is a rules-lite roleplaying system with a heavy narrative spin. Included in the 140-page guidebook are:
- The Magic System
Grimoire is built upon a unique and super-flexible spell system that allows players to build their spells on the fly with real magical phrases.
- Unique Settings
Whether you prefer the typical high fantasy setting, a wizarding academy, or modern urban magic, Grimoire has a scenario for you.
- Random Tables
The guidebook contains tables for randomly generating your Wizards and their adventures. Generate quest details, whispered rumours, magical artifacts, and even high-fashion outfits.
- Pencils for Wands
Wands are an important tool in spellcasting! Get everyone in on the fun of waving a length of wood around while incanting mystical phrases.
- Important Badges
Make sure your players know every Wizard's names and what their job is with eye-pleasing paper badges they can decorate and tape to their shirts.

Let me tell you about Grimoire. Grimoire is THE wizarding game. Who wants to waste time playing a muscled barbarian or a sneaky rogue when you can control THE COSMOS ITSELF?! They do away with notions of "class balance" and embrace all [...]

About 20 minutes of "HOW DOES THIS WORK?", after that the fun started - transforming an inn into a ghost-inn? CHECK! Destroying several buildings by removing all plant-matter? CHECK! Creating a fake full moon because how else does one find a [...]

I had a lot of fun running this for a little over a month as a break from a "serious business" Cthulhu game. It took about half a game for the players to get a handle on the fact they had been handed the keys to infinite power (some restricti [...]

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.
