". . . [High Fantasy Magic] feels like the kind of thing that should have been in the Core rules - aspects for permissions, skills for actions, stunts for bonus stuff. Well done."

- Christopher Dolunt (Author of Savage Worlds: Rippers)


". . . I like that it's a very light touch on the existing skills and action system. Very good from my perspective of not bolting on lots of extras."

- Rory Bracebuckle (Author of Perilous Intersections)

High Fantasy Magic is a simple, freeform magic system designed for Fate Core and Fate Accelerated. It is a drop-in magic system with a high fantasy tone that sticks closely to Fate Core and provides the same amount of flexibility in character creation and progression. There are no spell lists. Instead, the players can choose which types of magic they can use via a list of magic disciplines. Then, the players are encouraged to use the power they have in whatever creative ways they can think of. The freeform nature of this magic system allows for simple adjudication of the rules and a low barrier to entry. Whether you use it in its entirety or pick it apart as a toolkit, this is a great resource for magical, fantasy settings.

BLUF: Great not Superb. There is room for improvement. Add Drain a la Shadowrun. The stunts are well thought out and useful for thinking of others. The discipline ideas are great, but would have benefited from thorough descriptions of skill usage and [...]

I do not like the magic systems presented in Fate Core or in Fate toolkit. But THIS magic system for FATE is excellent. Simple, flexible and not overpowered. And it can probably be hacked in few minors ways to represent other magical traditions [...]

This product is an excellent start for your own magic system or it is detailed enough to jumpt right in and get going. [...]

Simple enough not to bog down a game, yet flavorful and expansive enough to include some awesome magic in any session. It's a good extra for a fantasy Fate game. [...]

This magic system's concept of power management is very promising. A well thought through approach that is closely tied in with the existing skill-sets for "mundane" characters in Fate Core and Fate Accelerated. I like the kid-friendly approa [...]

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.
