Colours of Magic: Red

A Spectrum Shift: Chromatic Arcana Product


Length: 20 pages + licence

In some worlds, Magic may not be seen as a force in and of itself. In some philosophies, magic can not be classed by types of effect, like Evocation, Illusion or Abjuration. Instead, it might be seen as a result of fundamental aspects of arcane metaphysics.

One such theory holds that all magic is a result of the principles of Colour.

Red is the colour of Fire, Power and Light. It manifests heat, energy, motion, brightness and strength. Its influence is simple, beyond morality or even thought: it is the colour that drives forward, empowers and illuminates, and is evoked in all that moves in the universe.

Those that devote themselves to understanding the Red become scions of the power that fills the universe, able to evoke vast effects of energy, fire and motion.

The most devoted of these might become Crimson Battlemages. These are spellcasters able to draw power directly from the Red. They are much sought for their arcane might and combat prowess, and usually espouse the philosophy that the best form of defence is attack.

Included in this product:
- 3 new Clerical or Mystical domains
- a linked reclassification of one twelfth of the spells of the players handbook, with some new spell effects to fit the spells into Chromatic Magic Theory
- a whole new character class, the Crimson Battlemage. This specialist spellcaster is devoted to the Red, with abilities somewhere between cleric, sorcerer and wizard.

The colours of Magic are being updated to 5e if you are interested - Please take look at Brown


Spectrum Shift: d20 fantasy from a slightly twisted perspective.

Firstly, I'd like to clarify my mistake in the review for Brown. I mentioned that only Green came with an .rtf file at the bottom of that review. That was incorrect. It was Red that came with an .rtf file. To start, this colour appears to be fir [...]

The Red magic has spells such as Flight, Lightning Bolt, Light, and Fireball. It is the "combat mage" color. That is good, because the specialist class is called the Battlemage, and it reminds me of the Valkyries of Norse legend. But inste [...]

I wasn't sure what to expect when I opened this product. I bought this product to test out what a new company had to offer. I wasn't looking for a new magic system. Yet, the one presented is quite interesting. It destroys the old school [...]

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.
