A Dozen Arcane Spell Components

One of my earliest D20 System PDFs was devoted to the idea that wizards could amplify the power of their spells by adding special arcane spell components to the casting ritual. 101 Arcane Spell Components was one of my many hits well over a decade ago, so it should come as no surprise that I decided to tackle the subject again. 

Where today’s approach to spell components deviates from my original work is in two very specific ways: 

  • These “rules” are systemless in nature, meaning that the gamemaster must craft the actual in-game effects for each of the described items. This isn’t as complicated or challenging as it may sound, though, because I do provide some loose guidance. 
  • I’ve given each of the described arcane spell components a full page so that each can include suggestions on how the items may affect spells, separated by school of magic. In many instances, a component only affects spells of three or four different schools of magic. As always, adjust the specifics to suit your needs. 

It is my hope that these spell components both find their way into your campaign and inspire you to create special spell components of your own. My absolute favorite feature of roleplaying games is that the GM is free to – in fact, encouraged to – create whatever comes to mind, and it is in that spirit of free and wondrous magic that the arcane spell components that follow were generated. Please let that wonder infect your game.

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.
