Fateforge - 2 - Spell book: Grimoire

Suggested Price $25.00

We bring you the Fateforge Tetralogy in Pay What You Want.

This four-book collection won a silver ENnies Asward for Best Writing. It includes the core book Adventurers with a full expanded version of 5E system ; Creatures, a complete bestiary ; Grimoire the book of magic and Encyclopedia, a lore book about the world of Eana.

These books took several years of work to make. They are a declaration of love to this medium that has given us so much. Today, we want to spread it as much as possible in the community that has supported us so much. We would also be very happy if it could be an opportunity for new people to try role-playing games and to travel together through fabulous lands.



"Fateforge, Epic tales in the world of Eana for 5th Edition. A love letter to Sword & Sorcery and the world's greatest RPG, from the team behind Shadows of Esteren, the most awarded French RPG."

Grimoire is the second book of the Fateforge series. Centered on magic and spellcasters, it includes information on:

Modular Magic. The modular system lets you tailor the game to your favored playstyle, from epic, unbridled fantasy to a more subdued and down-to-earth atmosphere. You will find rules related to critical success on spellcasting, resurrection, spell modification, and more.

Awakening. In the universe of Eana, only those who have Awakened can cast spells. A chapter is dedicated to this concept and covers both its mysteries and dangers.

Geomagic. This chapter details geomagic—the study of localized magic activity—and its fascinating manifestations, which directly influence the area they affect.

Corruption. Beware the perils of corruption, this rampant evil that transforms the body and mind of whoever is exposed to it. The powers it offers are tempting, but the risk of a monstrous downfall is very real!

Spells. More than 360 spells, including many original ones, will allow you to explore all the aspects of magic, from powerful but demanding conjuration spells to dreadful corrupt spells.

Appendices. Several game aids go over the core knowledge of any student of the arcana, or give compiled information on spells. This part of the book also covers the use of scrolls and provides a list of common potions of Eana.

Which of the two downloadable versions is the updated one? I downloaded them both, and I can't see where they differ.. Please help! The uncertainty is frustrating.

I second this. There are two books listed, one has a date of 01-09-21 in the title which I presume is therefore an old book. The second one is exactly the same size in MB as the one I downloaded on 14/02/23. I wish DriveThru would list an updated date against each downloadable item and not a group of items.

Ever wondered what a good effect would be for levelling Mage Hand would be? Making more hands that last longer! ...a simple example, but you get the idea. Also neat ideas about making different areas have magical effects to keep player on their toes via the Geomagic system.

Alas, I cannot give a proper rating review as I did not buy this here.

Good to have a real spell book. And Chancre makes the game different.

Really good book, so much content. I love some of the twists the authors have put on the standard 5e magic rules. Highly recommend!

Had the chance to get it during their last KS... and the least I can say is that it’s inspiring ! So beautiful ! A lot of new spells and a lot of unique playful game system system totally integrated wit dd5, like the "awakening", "geomagic" or "canker and corruption", in a wide and coherent new world... Don’t hesitate ! :)

Mastering Dragons. Grimoire is really a reference. You can use it far beyond the universe of Eana.

What makes this book unique and worthwhile:
- balanced, scaled non-combat cantrips: your players will love the options offered and after 2 years of DM'ing using the Fateforge system I can say it never feels out of balance.
- unique, interesting spells and cantrips: besided the regular 5e spells this book adds a host of new spells that never seem to outshine the original 5e spells but always add something interesting to the repetoire of your players.
- lore around magic: I won't spoil it, but this book offers many ways to integrate magic into your setting that go above and beyond "there is magic, just is"

The only thing I take issue with is the heavy use of 'Canker' in this setting and book, not because it's not written amazingly or because it doesn't add anything to the world (it does), but because it is called Canker: the name is too familiar to a disease that has hurt almost every family I know and after a recent loss of a close relative of one of the players we decided...See more

The view of the magic et how to use it, but yes is the content is very similar to the regular spell book of 5ed.

Which is the best fateforge book to get if I'm looking for general setting and monsters?

I'm a Kickstarter backer for the core books and the recent Creatures book. You'll want at least the Adventurer's book and the Grimoire. They form the "Player's Handbook" of this setting. One is character creation (races, equipment, rules) and the other has the spells. There is a new monster book that is really good as well and adds non-standard races (play as a goblin, orc, hobgoblin, etc) These will be followed with regional Encyclopedias that have more monsters and local places, history, lore. Hope that helps.

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.
