Universities of Magic aka All About Mages


    You’re playing a high fantasy RPG, right?  But how does it get to be high fantasy?  Where do all the spell casters come from?  They come from the schools, the Universities of Magic!

    Magical colleges can be fascinating places to thrill the player characters, but they are also dangerous when it comes to game balance.  Walking that tight rope isn’t easy, and a little advice goes a long way.  That’s what this book is about.  What universities can there be?  How do they fit into the “normal” life and culture of their home cities.  And are they actually playing magical sports?

    If you’re looking for a ton of new ideas, ideas you can easily use in your existing game world or use to craft a new game world, then Small Bites is what you’re looking for.  Our goal is to take a subject, whether an archetype, a monster class, or some other FRPG theme and bring you as much content about it as we can.  But this isn’t a simple one-shot supplement.  We want to get you involved in the process - giving us the themes you want most, the articles you like the best, and the feedback we need to make you happy.

    This is the “World Walker” edition.  The Game Master edition gives you even more, including ideas about campaigns, enemy characters, and world building.  We know that veteran and starting players and game masters are all going to find things they can use, and ideas to spark their characters, campaigns and game worlds!  Come on - You’ve got nothing to lose!

    This supplement contains 14 pages of content, compared to the full version which contains 43 pages.

This is an interesting read. I do not usually play games like this, but I am finding them interesting. As a solo, homebound, Disabled Veteran, and retired state employee, I obtain these items more for reading material than actually playing. The text is easy to read and follow, and the included photos are useful visual aids.

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.
