Magic is not one single thing. It is manifested and manipulated in a multitude of ways. This volume details some of the various types of magic and gives classes associated with each. Also given herein are various patrons associated with magic, new types of magical corruption, a collection of magic items and descriptions of otherworldly realms.

Some of the content contained in this book is a reprint of material from previous publications by Raorgen Games.

This manual presents:
    ● 9 categories of magic
    ● 8 classes (Alchemist, Bard, Dragonborn, Gnome, Genie-kin, Necromancer, Shaman, Witch)
    ● 3 class variants (Arcane Dancer, Fey-touched, Half-elf)
    ● 85 spells
    ● 6 patrons
    ● Expanded lists of physical corruptions
    ● Mental corruptions
    ● 17 new magic items
    ● 6 magical realms

This Dungeon Crawl Classics supplement is set in the Pax Lexque campaign world, but may be used with any setting.

Print-on-demand version coming soon.

Looks really exciting - can't wait for the PoD!
Quick question - is this a compilation of existing material or all new spells/magic items? Thanks.

It's a mix. Roughly half of it overall comes from my prior books.
The magic items are new.
31 of the spells are new.
3 of the classes and 2 of the class variants are new.
1 of the patrons is new and 2 others are expanded from their original publication
The expansions to the corruption lists are new.
The magic category descriptions are new.

Could we please have a preview? And will this be released as a POD?

Sorry, I had the preview set up but it didn't keep the setting. It's in place now. POD is coming soon, hopefully within 2 weeks.

Thank you! It is nice to see another dedicated spellbook for DCC come out. The only other one I can think of is Liber Arcanum and that is from 2016.

I'd like to get this, I have all the other supplements in this line, but I don't see a POD option. When will that become available again?

Roughly 2 weeks would be my guess. I submitted an update a few days ago.

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.
