Witchcraft For Schema

Witchcraft For Schema

Suggested Price $0.00

This is a supplement for Schema, providing a unified magic system. Possession of Schema is a necessity to make sense of these rules. A general familiarity with the overall ecosystem of material (Fundamentals, Mechanisms, and so on) related to Schema is assumed, but not required.

This magic system is focused, like most RPG magic systems, on a list of magical effects that are in practice organized into spells, with the option to create more. It diverges from the usual in that it has been structured to feel more akin to witchcraft or folk magic than to the Vancian wizardry most traditional in RPGs. Well-read gamers who have encountered Ars Magica or the Verb/Noun casting system of GURPS Magic will find this system very familiar; it is one of their descendants (and proudly so).

Each spell in this system is built by combining a Domain (like fire), an Art (like conjuring), and a Form (like brew). However, these components don't dictate the spell exactly; a fire-conjuring brew might be a blackened lump that explodes on any hard impact, or a potion that sheds both heat and light when poured out on any surface.

To cast a spell, your character must be an adept with all of the three components involved (the art, form, and domain), and make a roll to do so properly. The Guide invents the dangers and highlights the augments possible for this spellcasting, as for any roll in the Schema engine.

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.
