Opus Magi

Modern day: you know that magic is real.  You are a practitioner of magic of some secret esoteric tradition, whether that be of a neo-pagan Wiccan who must avenge her teacher, a high-class Cambridge scholar of the Ordo Arcanorum on the trail of ancient artifacts, a shaman of an ancient tribe come to the modern world on a vision quest, or a modern mage of the Internet Book of Shadows scrying the net for tidbits of lore.

Or, you could be a skilled expert of a modern prosaic career, out for hire or looking for adventure. You could be ex-soldier in need of some cash, a geeky computer hacker who stumbled onto something strange, a ex-mafiosi on-the-run, or an agent of a government alphabet agency researching the paranormal.


A game of magic and mysteries, Opus Magi features 24 character playbooks. This includes 12 esoteric magical schools such as; Internet Mage, Chaos Mage, Kuji-in, Neo-Pagan, Vampire, Mystic Yogi, Psion, and others. This also includes 12 prosaic non-magic-using careers such as; Martial Artist, Technician, Rogue, Agent, Hunter, and Special Forces. Character creation is quick, but offers many options.


Opus Magi has 13 magical domains which allow you to craft your own spells quickly on-the-fly in-game. There are also psionics for certain characters.

Game Play

Opus Magi uses an easy but robust game mechanic (Cepheus Engine D6), giving the player and the Referee a quick learning curve for a fun fast-paced game which still has a lot of bells and whistles.

The Scroll of Tilak of Tibet

A one-shot adventure for new players is included in the core rulebook.

POD accounts for a very small percentage of sales, and is not a really good idea for new titles. The e-version here is optimized for print-out from any local printer. Just make sure the printer selects the option for "fit to page margins" or the equivalent.

The pregen character sheets starting on p. 239 are all blank.

I downloaded it myself, and I see that this is an issue. Originally, those pregen sheets were fillable, but apparently the process by which drivethru prepares the file for publishing removes the auto-fill. I'll get this corrected and get a new issue out to you and to the other customers.

Hi, thank you for bringing this to my attention. I adjusted the PDF so that that pregen's show, and loaded the update to drivethru. If you didn't get the email notification, you should have access to the update in your account.

Original electronic
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.
