Welcome to the GM's Day sale! From now through March 10th, this title has been marked down by up to 40%! For more values, visit our GM's Day sale page.

NOTE: This product is for the Hero Lab Files. For the book itself, please see /product/300249/Ultimate-Spheres-of-Power

Spheres of Power is a completely new magic system for the Pathfinder RPG and other D20 systems, built from the ground up to provide an easy and intuitive approach to concept-based magic.

In this, the Ultimate version of Spheres of Power, we have compiled the original volume, over 22 handbooks, and numerous smaller expansion products into one enormous volume, giving you a compiled and rebalanced system that greatly expands on what sorts of worlds and characters you can use with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game 1st edition!

Included in this book you will find:

  • 22 Magic Spheres — including alteration, blood, creation, conjuration, dark, death, destruction, divination, enhancement, fallen fey, fate, illusion, life, light, mind, nature, protection, telekinesis, time, war, warp, and weather.
  • 12 New Base Classes — including the thaumaturge, the elementalist, the mageknight, the armorist, the incanter, the eliciter, the soul weaver, the fey adept, the symbiat, the hedgewitch, the shifter, and the wraith.
  • Advanced Magic — including rituals, spellcrafting, advanced talents, and incantations. These systems may be implemented in part or en masse to grant a gaming table complete control over how magic interacts with their setting.
  • Casting Traditions — allowing both players and GMs to customize not only their characters, but even the entire concept of magic itself.
  • Magic Item Creation Rules — adapting the entirety of magic item creation to the new system.
  • Bestiary— Giving you all manner of creatures adapted for use with the system; GMs should have fun too!

And much, much more!

I have purchased this some time ago and I absolutely love the Spheres system. Incredibly well done. I do have an issue that has come up with the Wraith class. This class is one of my favorites will all the amazing possession abilities but let's get back on track. When I add a Haunt Path, this keeps popping up.


Linkage pick 'table' not located for current context
Location: Procedure 'SoPStrPossess' near line 9
- - -
Attempt to access 'focus' pick or thing from script when no focus exists
Location: Procedure 'SoPStrPossess' near line 11

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you and aside from that, keep up the good work!

Side note,
Is the Mana sphere getting a Hero Lab file as well as the Tech sphere?

Nice package that helps with the game. There are some minor bugs e.g "Everglow" requires "lasting light" talent but I can't see any lasting light talent either in hero lab or with google searches.

I cannot get this to work in Hero lab. I keep getting errors and have reached out to Dropdead Studios a couple of days ago. I would love to get this working.

I'm also getting the Thing Extension 'sopDbWldMg' - Tag 'sopDbWildMagicVar' not defined. Now I see where you said update wild magic, but I don't see that as one of the packages I downloaded. I really hope that I don't have to download it to get this to work.

So I just purchased the wild magic package just in case that was it, and I see that now I've got a laundry list of errors. I really don't want to type it all out here, so give me an email and I'll send you a screenshot of the errors.

I currently have Spheres of Power, Spheres of Might, the Destroyer's Handbook, Expanded Options, and the Shapeshifter's Handbook. Is purchasing Ultimate Spheres of Magic going to bork my Hero Lab? I've noticed lots of updates to the file in the last few days since release, so I've suspected there's a bunch of bug hunting going on or something.

I've only created a few NPC's using the rules so far, as I've been waiting for this particular release to get started. Do I have to rebuild them from scratch if I purchase this?

Make sure you have the Ultimate Magic and the Advanced Player's Guide hero lab packs from the hero lab developers as well as the community Pathfinder Pack (Download for that can be found in the read me part of the zip file you receive with this)
Those three are the main causes of any validation issues and the read me file specifically mentions this but it is easy to miss.

Also a good idea to remove the old spheres files

Package developer here; that error should be cleared up by the 1.1 update. I believe Adam has replaced the downloadable version here on DriveThru but you can also get it through Hero Lab if you have set it up to detect updates (instructions are in the readme). If you have 1.1 installed and it still isn't working please email me at dropdeadstudios dot herolab at gmail dot com so we can troubleshoot further.

No.

BTW though, for those other customers that have been having issues with this buggy release: Go into your Tools-->Manage 3rd Party Updates and start deleting the hell out of packages. Kill all of the other Drop Dead Studio packages you find dealing with Spheres of Power, plus I also killed anyone's packages that might have had something to do with "wild magic" like your packages that might deal with the FR. I don't know for sure those packages might have anything to do with Drop Dead's buggy files killing everything, but OTOH it's 2021 and it's been a long while since I've used those parts of my program anyway.

When I was left I still had my "Pathfinder Pack" (v1.2, 524 files) from the LW Forums, the Gestalt package (v1.1, 6 files), Spheres of Might (v1.17, 43 files), Champions of the Spheres (v1.5, 4 files), Spheres of Power (v1.1, 75 files), and my World is Square package (v1.6, 2 files).

All of that nonsense about them updating your stuff?...See more

This error comes from the Wild Magic Handbook, and should be resolved by updating it to version 1.2, a fix which another user has confirmed. The error is similar, but not the same, as the error fixed by USoP version 1.1 (which is why I initially suggested that as the fix for James; I had confused the two similar errors)

I am working on another update for USoP to address some other problems that have been reported to me. I apologize for the troubles I have caused with my mistakes on this release.

There are a quite a few issues with this release, many resulting in errors in Hero Lab, several causing your character not to validate. Hopefully those will be resolved, but as is, be careful with this thing, and make sure you double check that rules are being applied correctly.

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.

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.
