This book introduces Incantations. What are incantations? They are basically spells. Not any spell where you have to take a class and gain levels to cast it. Instead you have to spend time, money and make skill checks to perform a ritual to cast the spell. This means anyone can cast it if they do it right and the ritual and spell can get pretty elaborate. The hard copy describes how incantations work and has rules for how to design your own before moving on to sample incantations based on real world faiths.
These aren't the kind of things to just give to your players and let them run wild. This is the kind of thing that can be the center of mystical mysteries, the precedent for campaign ending schemes or weird magic found in dusty books at the bottom of a dungeon.
This product gives a concept and applies a lot of fluff and flavor to it but how much you value the concept is going to make or break it for you. Personally I think this is the kind of magic that can make entire campaigns and it is presented with detail, flavor and solid crunch so I'm giving it five stars and would insist that this is one of those 'must have' books. Even if you have Kobold Press' Deep Magic, which also introduces the exact same rules, this product is still valuable for the sample incantations you can put into your games.
@Thorr-kan: I've talked to the wonderful Mistress of the Webstore, and she says this can be done! When I get the color prints in order (see response below), I will set this up, too. :D
@Endzeitgeist: Sure, We'll give a color print option for this a go. Won't have them by Paizocon, though (but I should be able to confirm pre-orders by then). When I have a high enough quality proof in my hand, I'll pull the trigger on it. :D
There's a discount if you already bought both PDFs. Had you alrady bought the PDFs?
Ha, yes actually. I was wondering what was going on. Thanks!
Deletin' the EVERYBODY PANIC post. ;)
Had me sweating for a minute. ;D
Yeah, sorry about that! Just wanted to be sure nothing was wrong, because man that seemed off for a print product. :)
Looking forward to having something to easily hand out. I really like the idea of ritualized magic accessable to a wider range of characters, especially as a way to further flesh out settings and set the mood.
Now that we've discovered the discount works, let me tell you about it! :)
The print edition will be discounted to anyone who has already purchased the two PDFs here at Paizo by the full price of the PDFs. But this discount will only last until next month (August 15). Thanks for all your support!
