Colours of Magic: Chrome

A Spectrum Shift: Chromatic Arcana Product


Length: 17 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.

Chrome is not one colour, but rather is a sheen or refraction effect; a rainbow of brightness that might dance at the corner of ones eye, or leap suddenly into view when least expected. Chrome is meta-colour; it shows how the effects of a universe in which spectrum magic manifests upon the very fundamental aspects of the self. It is the colour of alignments and alignment magic, but also the colour that supersedes all the others and yet binds them all together.

There are no Chrome Mages? not exactly. However, some mages do learn powers that affect or transgress the normal chromatic order of the universe. These Prestige classes of Chromatic Arcana are all gathered here.

Included in this product:
- 1 new Clerical and Mystical domain
- 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, gathered under one uniform domain.
- Six new prestige character classes:

ArcMage (Spectromancer) After learning the base powers of several universal chromatic elements, a mage may uncover secrets to the full spectrum of magical power. Sometimes also called Rainbow Magicians, they have the capacity to cast almost all spells available as arcane spells and advanced spell progression.

Binarist (Meld-Mage) For those that seek mastery of two colours simultaneously, a particular path of development is available (providing those colours are not opposed). They might learn to focus on two separate universal elements, and find ways to mesh them together to develop powerful spell abilities.

Monomancer (Coherence Mage) When a specialist chooses to align themselves to the principle of one colour absolutely, to the exclusion of all else, they might become a Monomancer. Such single mindedness has certain advantages, but also affects one's perspective to some extent.

Prismatician (Diffraction Mage) The magic of Light has particular relevance to the nature of Colour, and as such it is possible that a Red mage might learn deeper secrets of arcane power through the creation and manipulation of light itself. Their learning gives them access to abilities that are less like spells and more akin to supernatural powers.

Pulsar (Oscillation Mage) Should a specialist learn that their focus on one chromatic element has made them blind to the opposite, they might seek a balance between the two opposing colours. This often results in fluctuations of ability, but eventually can end in a unique set of powers dependant upon which duality they attempt to bridge.

Ultramancer (UV Mage) The darker end of the spectrum contains many secrets and vast power. Those that master it might develop a kind of magic from the Shades that is different and yet related to the abilities that Grey Magicians utilise. Some say this represents a hidden colour, or one invisible to the mortal eye that tells of an underlying structure to reality.

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

The colour of Chrome isn't really a colour at all. It's more like the universal school of chromatic arcana, only much more encompassing. It's sort of like the pure form of all the colours. Hard to explain, since I'm not too sure whether I'm right or no [...]

Chrome magic is unique from the other 11 colors in many ways. It is not broken down into 3 domains, it doesn't have as many spells, and it doesn't have a "core class". However, it has one domain that has a lot of versatility, and its [...]

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.
