Octavirate Presents Volume 3: Simple Tricks and Nonsense

Greetings and Well Met, Friends!

Welcome to Calrith's Catalog of Curious Conjury, the realm's only inclusive guide to simple sorcery and amateur arcane artistry. Perhaps you are merely a dabbler looking to expand your powers in bold and creative ways. You may be a mighty master of magic who seeks knowledge on how to get the most of the least of your abilities. Or you may lie somewhere in-between. Whatever your situation, whatever your profession, the spells thusly contained will be of a surprising aid in your day-to-day life, be you mage or minstrel, druid or diviner!

-Calrith Cazaaar

What is Octavirate Presents?

Octavirate Presents is a new series of themed mini-game supplements from the creators of the Libris Personae and Creature Weekly. Set to fill the niche of Creature Weekly, Octavirate Presents provides regular releases of new monsters for your d20 campaign but doesn?t stop there. It features an adventure seed and scenario and provides NPCs, classes, feats, items or spells to work with the overall scenario or to work independently. Each volume is a different gaming experience that will keep your players on their toes.

Hammer Construct, one of many 0-level spells available to the novice caster.

Features:

* Fifty New Cantrips. 0-level spells for every spellcasting class and every situation. Everything from utilitarian sorcery to specialized magic. Low-level magic has always been boring and basic, but these new spells can give any caster a much needed boost at low levels.

* Three new low-level spells. Calrith’s cantrip cannon unleashes multiple cantrip effects simultaneously. Calrith’s cantrip cascade gives you the long-running magical demonstrations you’ve always wanted and props and scenery is a must have for any bard.

* Seven New Feats open up low level casting to any class and enhance the cantrip and orison-wielding power of devoted casters.

* Two new creatures. The origami animal and the cantrimp. Origami animals are animated pieces of paper that do tricks and can fulfill simple tasks while cantrimps are the inevitable result of carelessness with magic. As always these creatures feature full variant rules support and alternate genre information for easy adaptation.

* Hedge Mage: A new NPC class, the hedge mage is a self-taught caster who can copy scrolls and make magic items but cannot cast on the fly. Part con-man, part snake-oil salesman and part junk-merchant, these self-taught dabblers can undercut the standard market price for magical equipment so long as reliability isn’t a big sticking point.

* Calrith Cazaaar: A new NPC and a living example of the Hedge Mage class. Calrith has a deal for you, even if it is too good to be true.

* Gameplay Variants for Low-Level Casting: Skill-based cantrips, bonus cantrips based on ability scores, 0-level casting for Paladins, Blackguards, Assassins and Rangers, 0-level domain spells for Clerics and variant spell-mishap charts let you customize your campaign to suit the

* Variant Rules Support: Like all Octavirate products, Octavirate Presents: Simple Tricks and Nonsense provides quick-reference variant rules support for each creature and NPC. In addition to the standard rules for wounds/vitality, defense bonus, armor as damage reduction, modern/3.0 damage reduction, sanity loss, taint, magic rating, spell points, honor and reputation this volume presents spell lists for Mages and Adepts for modern d20 gaming.

Features Art from Greg Sepelak, Ronald Smith and Trent Troop.

Abandoned and discarded, it is only a matter of time before you see their lone images pasted on the back of a milk carton. The red-headed step children of dungeons and Dragons magic system, cantrips, are often forgotten and unused, especially after level [...]

Format

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.
