Bring a bit of the exotic to your game!

Whether your character's in the market for anamnesis alloy that remembers both its original, cold-forged shape and a secondary shape (so you can have two weapons in one), or distilled anathema, the alchemical sample of the desire to kill (so you can slay a hated racial enemy)—this product has it covered. It focuses on bringing you new special materials that do not render the existing special materials useless and versatile power components, which alter or augment a spell's normal effects in new and interesting ways, it adds a bit more spice to a spellcaster's life. In addition, a number of these items affect the spells generated by magical items or alter the very nature of an item operates so that it become more than just a spell in a box.

FULL SIZED FREE PREVIEW


Not buying it today, but definately sticking this in the old shopping cart. I've wanted to see more power components since they were first introduced


Picked this up today and read it quickly over lunch, I'll do a proper review over the weekend. The power components are a very cool and thematic mechanic. I can see quests to acquire a specific power components. Some of the metals are incredible. My magus is lusting after a Chthonic steel and Alchemical Ceramic scimitar, +6750 GP to get a +4 on confirms is too good to pass up.

Any chance of a Hero Lab file for this or do I need to wait for the Ultimate 101 Series hard cover?

First:

From chthonic steel "Items not primarily of metal are not meaningfully affected by being partially made of this special material."

So the alchemical ceramic scimitar would not get the additonal +2 bonus. Especially since these are forged as single pieces.

90% of the time you can't stack special materials.

Our Hero Lab files are done by fans, on their own time, so your guess is as good as mine though I will pass along the request.


Interesting, I read it as being similar to powder coating,which places a ceramic coating on the surface of the metal. I prefer your clarification, which will not allow them to stack. Personally, had I written the metals I would have given them an alchemical bonus instead of an untyped and circumstance bonuses.

Review later today.


not a bonus I thought of your probably very right about that.

I am really looking forward to the review.


And reviewed here, on DTRPG and sent to GMS magazine. Will also post it as part of my "Top 3 -101-books"-post on NERD TREK. Cheers!


Thanks Enzeitgeist, I am glad you enjoyed it.
