Mineral Magic: Volume One


With a deep breath, Gwendolyn positioned the chisel. With a small TAP of the hammer the final piece of the peridot fell away. To the untrained eye nothing about the gem had changed, but she could tell that she had succeeded. This was her most difficult work to date, but she knew that this peridot gemstone was now ready; it had become a dragon bone, ready to call forth a juvenile red dragon from the natural magic of the gem that she had just harnessed.

Gems should be more than just pretty baubles! Now they are! No more will gems become quick sources of cash, pawned off at the first opportunity. Harness the hidden secrets of the natural magic within gems and minerals and provide your players with magic items that are not only functional, but look great too!

Mineral Magic: Volume One is a short book for use with the Open Gaming License, Version 1.0a, System Reference Document. Within you will find 31 new magic items, which can be made from 25 commonly found gems and minerals, including the Five Quartz Spheres and the Four Quartz Skulls.

Mineral Magic: Volume One contains descriptions of all 31 new items along with the necessary rules for creating and selling them to your players. Also included are 2 new feats that will allow your players to harness their own magical minerals.

A handy book for adding detail to gameplay. I liked being able to provide options for players when they come into possession of gems and minerals. Instead of always selling stones, they have come up with some useful magic items made from found gems and [...]

Since the book was so inexpensive, it was a "what the heck" purchase. It turned out to be money well spent. I liked the full color layout. The authors show they know a little something about gems and geology, and their ideas on how to use [...]

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.
