Watermarked PDF + Softcover, B&W Book

Other Magic is an old style zine designed to translate "real" magic practices into a format that is useful for fantasy and horror rpgs.  OSR-style versions of the spells are provided, but the content is written in a way that makes the material easily adaptable to just about any system.    

Other Magic gives background information on the real world magic traditions that inspired the spells and rituals it covers: Pennsylvania Dutch Braucherei/Powwowing, Brujeria / Hechiceria / Curanderismo, Hoodoo / Rootwork / Conjure, Ozark Magic, and Russian Slavic Zagovory. 

This product is the result of a successful Kickstarter campaign that ran in February of 2019.

Hi. I'd like to ask if the other numbers of the zine (#2 and #3 Ancient World) will be ever published too here in drivethrurpg.

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.
