Results 1 to 1 of 1. Magic of Arcanis Hello friends, It has been a long while since I reviewed anything, so please be indulgent, and remember English is only my secondary language. Magic of Arcanis is a pages soft cover book from Paradigm Concepts, and it is mostly a rules supplement, offering lots of new options to players.
While written primarily for the excellent and innovative world of Mmagic, most of it could be ported to other campaigns with changing a slight bit of fluff. But hey, fluff is what makes roleplaying, right? I mean, any moron can publish a magjc dungeon adventure, with random monsters taken out from the latest batch of published minis. But who can publish a gut-gripping adventure, with believable political factions, a coherent world, and a campaign that steals your breath consistently over several dozens adventures?
The cover art is a nice colour rendering of Sanctorum mages battling the magic hordes of the eviiiiillllll Sorcerer-King of Ymandragore.

Interior art is good quality black and white. While the book deals mainly with arcane Magic for wizardsthere zrcanis something arcxnis everybody inside, including the divine-casting classes! Chapter I defines magic in the world of Arcanis, both how it works, and how the local churches and governments perceive it 4pages.
Chapter II the Sanctorum of the Arcane describes this “secret” organisation, specific to the world of Arcanis. Because you will not find mages openly advertising themselves in this world! Mages are hunted for their blood and their powers by the minions of the Uber-powerful sorcerer-king, and have to work underground mostly, much like the Veiled Alliance of Dark Sun.
I happen to love this take on the world, as it gives much more leeway to the players of other classes, and explains neatly why mages do not rule the world entire, like in say Chapter III is “Core Spellcasting in Arcanis” and re-explains the core classes in this world for the sake of completeness.
Chapter IV new Core Classes.
It is full of good ideas. In there arcanjs will find several new options: A kind of Clockwork mage creating golem-like contraptions Hedge Mage: I have seen Spellblades played rather successfully in my games.

Chapter V feats There are several new feats here 24 pages Background feats, such as patchwork soul you are the reincarnation of some previous heroes, and some of your old life comes is still here In real life music is arvanis a lot by culture, and so it should be in fantasy worlds. Are cultures interesting in Arcanis Kind of like 2e, only better, with nifty cool powers and such.
A mage specialized in disguising himself and his powers. Can be running from the Inquisition, the sorcerer-king, or who knows?
If you are running Dark Sun you could take it into the Veiled Alliance. Order of St Armon: Now you must really fear the Inquisition! Let everybody behold the power of the gods.
Chapter 7 is new Equipment. Mostly alchemical stuff, though I like the idea of staves with hidden compartments inside.
SIXTY pages of them. And the Last chapter is specially, yes specially, for us old-skool grognards sadistic DMs: All around the book you learn all these cultured mages, with all their powers are hunted by the agents of the BAD guy, the Sorcerer-King. You learn why, and How, they shall suffer.
In short, this book is screaming: Who wants plain vanilla when you can have a free layer of chocolate on top? This book is for everybody! You want it in your collection, you want it on your game table!
If only the other publishers had as many ideas as these guys, we would not need any other editions for the next 50 years! If you do not have a campaign now, join Living Arcanis, and experience RPGs the way they were meant to be.
