It's Christmas in July! From now through July 28th, this title has been marked down by 25%! For more values, visit our X-mas in July sale page.

The sequel to the immensely popular Elements of Magic: Revised is here! (Note that this product is an expansion for Elements of Magic: Revised, EN Publishing's D&D 3.5 and PATHFINDER RPG magic system. Lyceian Arcana is not a stand-alone product.)

In an abandoned classroom in the Lyceum, three mages stand together, channeling their energies into a desperate ritual spell. Their enemies, dreamborn monsters bent on destroying the physical world, are half a continent away, seeking an artifact whose location had been sealed in the Lyceum’s vaults. The heroes’ only chance of getting there in time is this daring teleportation. They have been dodging charmed spell duelists and bribed effigist priests all day, and they hope that now they might have enough of a reprieve to perform the dangerous ritual. Their allies and bodyguards look on expectantly.

Suddenly, the doors to the classroom burst open, and in strides a Ragesian inquisitor, ancient and powerful, flanked by a hulking pair of biomantically-created beasts. Magically shielded by his bearskull mask, the inquisitor throws forward his hand with a fierce snarl, and his beasts charge. The bodyguards of the three mages hold the monsters at bay, while a master of the martial art of Tel-Shalanth tumbles across the room, hoping to disrupt the Inquisitor’s energy before he can cast a spell.

Nobody casts magic missile.

E.N. Publishing’s Elements of Magic – Revised Edition gave you a system to create any sort of spell you desired on the fly, breaking free of the traditional forms of magic. In Lyceian Arcana, we present guidelines, examples, and new rules to help you turn that system of game mechanics into any sort of magical world you desire. Discover an academy’s worth of knowledge, including:

  • Nine sample magical traditions, including the Dreamers of the Inner Path – mages who draw power from the horrors they find in their dreams – and the Taranesti Diabolists – opportunistic dark Elves who gain their greatest powers by bartering with the infernal.
  • Conversions of the core spellcasting classes, to let you use the Elements of Magic system while keeping the same feel in your games.
  • Five new magical classes, such as the Godhand – a warrior who receives magical boons from his deity – and the Anima – a flexible class that lets any character imbue herself with permanent magical abilities.
  • Twenty-five magical tradition feats, a way to make yourself part of a particular magical tradition far more easily than taking a prestige class.
  • Expanded magic item and spellcasting rules. Create intelligent items, or cast powerful spells in massive rituals.
  • Information on the Lyceum itself, an academy devoted to teaching diverse magical knowledge, and a perfect way to introduce the Elements of Magic system to an existing game.

I wouldn't call this an expansion, because that usually means one can go without buying. No, for me this book is mandatory if you purchase Elements of Magic (revised). And you know what, I am completely okay with that, as this book is amazing. The informa [...]

A great expansion to the EOM system, I found the new classes just as useful as those detailed in the first book. While not as good as the first, as it offers no real revision to the rules, and no magical additions, it still gets four stars. [...]

Original electronic
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.
