RPGPundit Presents #8: 3 Medieval-Authentic Magical Grimoires

This weekly OSR periodical from the mind of RPGPundit features a different theme or topic in each issue.

Issue 8 (Nov 21, 2017): Three Medieval-Authentic Magical Grimoires

Grimoires were the key magical texts of medieval European occultism. They were not spellbooks in the OSR sense, nor were they really magical handbooks. They were the collected and disseminated works of advanced magical techniques. The Grimoires presented in this issue are based on real historical texts, adapted in ways to be useful for an OSR campaign.

so does this actually contain a full grimoire or merely a few spells and a description of some book.

3 books with full contends obviously don't fit in 15 pages with some wasted pages in there as is common.

Feels kind of vague

This product is a game supplement. It contains descriptions of and magic rules for three grimoires based on real medieval era texts. It is not a history book or a reproduction of the medieval texts in full, it is meant for use in OSR games.

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.
