The Sorcerer: A Custom Class for Old School Essentials

Watermarked PDF
Suggested Price $1.00

As the party ascends the long and winding staircase that leads to the top
of the ancient tower, the hair on the back of each of their necks begins to
stand. Suddenly, a lightning bolt bursts through a wooden door, a
splinter of wood impaling the wizard as the fighter raises their shield to
protect the cleric. As the thief peers into the dimly lit chamber, she
observes all manner of strange and eldritch secrets. The hair on the
back of each party member’s neck again begins to stand, as the sound of
electricity can be heard from within the chamber. It is then they realize,
they shall likely not survive this encounter. For the party has entered the
domain of “The Sorcerer” …

What is a Sorcerer?

“Sorcerers are adventurers who have an innate ability to cast arcane
magic spells. Sorcerers know a limited number of spells but can cast
them more frequently and with greater flexibility.”

This definition of a sorcerer is intentionally broad, allowing the players
and referee to determine the origin of the sorcerer’s innate affinity for
magic. Perhaps the sorcerer is a descendant of a powerful magical being
or perhaps they received their abilities through a cataclysmic event.
Regardless, the sorcerer has an innate ability that allows them to cast
arcane spells.

This PDF provides rules for playing the sorcerer class for your
Old-School Essentials games.

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.
