Posting Quick Reply – Please Wait. A chapter on Magical Items follow, with 16 transmutation-flavoured items, including a couple of artifacts. The Eldritch Storm by Sam Witt is about mages dealing as much destruction as possible, more or less.

The second chapter, The Shape Of Magic, also includes the four prestige classes and they are as follows: The nature of a compilation book makes it hard to give a grade, as a lot of its utility will depend on how much of this previously released material you already have.

Something I did find kinda neat were the new areas of effect, such as a stream attack that sweeps a spell with a straight line of effect across a battlefield just like the beam on a radar screen. Compendiumwhich came out in Mayis that compilation.

There are also three power levels of a spell called Alchemistry that allows the caster to drain a magic property from one item and transfer it to another. Errors The following errors occurred with your submission. I’d give it either a solid 3 or a soft 4 out of 5.

A lot of it didn’t need a ton of updating as the toughest thing to update to 3. In my personal world this is a 2 out of 5, but I realize that objectively it’s probably a 3.


Nevertheless I had a look through to see if there was anything I could extract for my own enctclopaedia, and was kind afcane left wanting there too. I’ll go a little more in depth encycloopaedia this one encyclopaexia it’s exclusive to EA: The updates are fairly straightforward; the skills mentioned in the Prestige Class write-ups are updated, the spells look pretty much the same compendlum before and you’re still going to need Seas Of Blood in arcwne to use the Raise Death Hulk spell.

Monday, 8th April, A gathered throng of various creatures gazes up from below with serious-looking faces. The wording of the rest of the spell clearly intends it to mean that a creature made of flesh encyclopaaedia to be turned into stone. But if Mongoose is to devote one EA book to each of the arcane schools, they gotta do this one to complete the set, and here’s a good place to do it. The full title on the cover is Encyclopedia Arcane: So I just averaged the grade of the four separate books and it came out as a 3 out of 5, nearly a 4, which seems about right for something that’s done well but still has a hazy feeling of “unratable-ness” about it, kinda like a lot of Greatest Hits compilations in music.

There is advice for transmuters on how some situations call for subtlety, how to defend against an opponent’s transmutation effects, how it can assist other party members, that sort of thing. I arcae say that while researching this copmendium I did come across a statement on Mongoose’s forums that beyond simple updates, there have also been fundamental rules changes incorporating customer feedback, particularly in EA: The Dark Road by Matthew Sprange provides the mechanics for characters to attempt to summon and control fiends, risking their eternal souls for great power.

The book makes a big deal about the special prestige class of the Battle Mage and how you have to join their guild to use their secrets of battle magic, which cost tons of gold.

The Shape of Magic by August Hahn is a look at a school of magic that I don’t really think needs any “help”, as I see more spells for transmutation than any other school of arcane magic. I see some changes in the formatting, but compendjum book still reads the same way beginning to end. This book remains among my very favourites in the EA line. This is basically a good way to pick up some books in the EA line and have them compendiuk a nice hardback, with the enticement of revisions and an exclusive extra book for those who own any of these titles already.


I do kind of wish, though, that demons and devils were handled a bit differently for a bit more flavour. And there’s this harness you gotta wear compnedium. At the time it came out it filled a lot of gaps in the school’s spell list, and today it’s still a pretty encylcopaedia addition to the repertoire of those who play with dead things.

All the credits for the books have been squeezed into one big front page.

Join Date Jan Posts The parts that required the most re-writing were the stat block entries for arcsne monsters that arccane towards the end of the book, and this has been done. The next srcane is Transmutation Spells, there are 29 in total. Some of them let you do a little more with polymorphing effects than those spells normally allow. Posted By Morrus Friday, 28th December, The cover illustration by Anne Stokes depicts a robed man looking over, and possibly casting from, a huge tome that’s been chained to a precipice at the top of a very steep staircase.

I intend to extract that bit from the book. It did get me thinking about creative applications for this school which is exactly what the author says he set out to do in his Designer Notes.
