Behind the Spells: Compendium


Behind the Spells: Compendium brings together the first 36 volumes of the "Behind the Spells" series. Not only has the original material been corrected for errata but this book also includes brand new material for select spells and behind the scenes commentary by the author for each spell. Whether you're a fan of the series or haven't quite gotten around to it yet, this is the book for you! As always, for each spell you get a history of the creator, at least two “spell secrets” (new rules for using the spell), and “related research” (new magic items and/or spells which somehow relate to the spell or its creator). Game Masters and players will have a wealth of spell information in these pages just waiting to be unleashed at the game table. Why buy books packed with new spells when there is still so much that can be done with the classics? Get back to basics with Behind the Spells: Compendium!

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.
