Monte Cook's Arcana Unearthed is a variant players handbook containing new character classes, races, spells, feats, plus alternate rule systems for spellcasting and other game functions. This volume, the Arcana Unearthed Grimoire, collects all the new spells and the magic rules from that book. Use these spells and rules to enhance your own d20 System games. You can use everything in this book alongside the 3rd Edition or revised 3rd Edition Player's Handbook, if you wish.

Spells in the Arcana Unearthed Grimoire are not just set, unchangeable programs, but flexible, customizable options for players. Each spell can be diminished or heightened to produce a spectrum of effects. It can be laden to hold more power. It can be woven with other spells to cast a more powerful spell. Adding spell templates can change the nature of a spell and its effects. Casters can add in new material components to change the effects.

Magic is fluid and subject to the whims of the individual caster, thus it remains always mysterious and fascinating.


Expand Your Spellcasting


This book will expand your available spellcasting options dramatically. Heres what youll find in each chapter of the Grimoire:

Chapter One: Magic: Anyone whos a little tired of the traditional 'prepare, then cast' method of handling spells will love the ability to alter a spells power and weave together minor spells into larger ones. Also, spell templates let you customize spells to fit your character. Chapter Two: Spells: This book offers dozens of pages of new spells, each complete with guidelines for heightening and diminishing its effects and for creating a magic item from it.


You don't need any other books to take advantage of the new spells and magic rules that follow. However, the text of the Arcana Unearthed Grimoire makes reference to various character classes, races, and feats found in Monte Cook's Arcana Unearthed. You will need that book if you'd like to learn more about these references, though its not essential that you do so.

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.
