Sorcerously Advanced is a speculative fiction game of cutting edge magic, set in the distant aftermath of a mystical singularity called The Gift: a day when every living person and all their descendants received incredible magical power.

As envoys, guards, and archaeologists for the Archive, your characters will seek out magical relics and irreplaceable records from ages long past to circulate across the world. They will navigate disputed territories, uncover ancient clues, and travel to strange, distant realms. This is only part of the danger in a world where overwhelming power is freely distributed... and not everyone is on board with the Archive's goals.

Sorcerously Advanced is about the effects of life-changing power on people and their societies. It’s about beliefs and decisions, and the impacts they have. It’s about the endless nature of knowledge. Most of all, it’s about what it really means to become 

Play in a flat world a million miles wide where literally everyone can be an immortal wizard and most people are. Play a transgressive demon-summoner from the Soverigns of Hell, a rune-tattooed explorer from the Geometer's Guild, a freedom fighter from the Unroyal who travel in thoughts and dreams, and more. Join societies like the Peacewalkers, who magically disconnect from violence itself, or the Soulpact, who rescue souls damned to the wrong afterlife.

Sorcerously Advanced uses the same diceless system found in Sufficiently Advanced Second Edition. In-character power is balanced against a player's ability to twist the plot, so you can play the character you want from the start of the game. Magic isn't just a set of spells, it's integrated into your character's abilities at every level. Not that we don't also have a list of spells, of course - but neither you nor your character needs to memorize them.

Check out the preview and see if you like it. Pay what you want.

Uhh, is the B&W Hardcover supposed to be Pay-What -You-Want?

Yes - all of the books and the PDF are currently pay-what-you-want (though that may change at some point). For the physical books there's still a minimum price for printing and shipping. You might have to put in a number to see it. Anything you pay over the minimum comes to me (and to DriveThru, of course).

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.
