The Magus Hack


The power is yours now. 

You have studied. You have trained. They called you a dreamer, a misfit, a fool.

But now the universe answers to your commands.

Take up your Hallows and go forth. Your Philosophy is irresistible. The Spirits will flee your approach, the Heavens and Hells will tremble..

But there's a problem.

Your Hubris grows. Your Egoism swells. The power is to great for mortals to control.

Will the Magic master you - or will you master the Magic?

Welcome to The Magus Hack, a new take on the '90s games that let you roleplay the wizard in a modern setting! In The Magus Hack you will find:

  • Rules for creating your own contemporary wizard
  • Nine Philosophical paths to inspire you
  • Rules for your Schools of Magic that let you craft your own spells
  • Usage die mechanics to cover the power of your Magic, the extent of your Hubris and the growing threat of your Nemesis
  • Rules for combat, chases, NPC antagonists, the Other Worlds and different styles of play
  • A nice character sheet and flow charts

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.
