  • Strange Magic Expanded – Ethermagic for Core Classes This little expansion for the amazing Strange Magic-tome clocks in at 7 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 5 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   First things first: This is a stand-alone expansion for Strange Magic – it does not require the main book: 24 alteration and voidmeld manifestations are reproduced for your convenience within this pdf. (As a purely cosmetic grip – voidmeld manifestations don’t have a header, which could be slightly confusing for novices of ethermagic) – these reproduced pieces take btw. up 3 pages of the pdf.   The first archetype here would be the cosmic minstrel, who replaces bardic knowledge […]

  • Strange Magic The following text will deviate a bit from my usual reviews. This is a massive 333 page book, 1 page front cover, 2 pages ToC, 1 page editorial/thank you, 1 page SRD, 1 page backer list, leaving this as a massive 327 page monster.   As you may realize upon looking at the cover, I am one of the contributing authors to this massive tome, so yes, in this case I may be considered biased by some of you out there.   It should be noted, though, that this massive book’s magic systems have ALL been released (and reviewed!) a LONG time before I had even an inkling I’d be working on this book, much less that I’d […]

  • Ultimate Ethermagic This massive book clocks in at 94 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial/ToC, 1 page SRD, leaving us with a massive 91 pages of content, so let’s…wait. First, here’s my   DISCLAIMER: I have a history with ethermagic. When Bradley Crouch first made the ethermancer, I was skeptical – another warlock-style “blast all day”-class? Urgh. In my experience, they boiled down to inflexible blasters that at the same time made logic for the very existence of bows et al. tenuous at best, were utterly OP OR resulted in plain boring gameplay. Upon diving into the class, I realized two things – a), it is a complex class indeed and b), I’d have to playtest it to […]
