The Mage’s Companion

Wizardry is more than working a charm or brewing a potion. There are fantastic beasts to capture, battles to be won, and doorways into other worlds that can be opened.

The Mage’s Companion is designed for players and referees who need a new challenge for their "name level" characters. Instead of exploring dungeons - learn the secret of why they exist. Instead of fighting fantastic creatures, find out how to create constructs and hybrids. If you’ve ever asked why the tales and tropes about wizards exist, but have found no rules that allow yours to live up to them, look no further.

• How did the Wizard dig that Dungeon? (and why did he do it?)
• Ideas for Nefarious Traps (and how much they cost)
• Battle Magic (and its Corrupting effects)
• Crafting Magic Items (and where to find the Secret Ingredients)
• Breeding new Beasts (and why it may bring Divine Intervention)
• Some Familiar spells (and not-so-familiar ones)
• Adding new friends to your Circle (and getting them to leave)
• Animations and Constructs (some are out of this world!)
• A Bestiary of Monsters that get along (and a few that don’t)
• Apprentices, Libraries, and Laboratories (what are they good for?)

If your old school game has gotten a little stale, this supplement has more than its fair share of adventure hooks, head scratchers, and new things to try at the gaming table. At last some FUN for upper-level Wizards and those who dare to travel in their company.

Yes. After version 2.0 comes out with the artwork and errata fixes, I'm going to set up a POD option.

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.
