Rune Sources: Petty Magick, Petty-Sorcerers and Hedge Wizards

The trader lurched once more as waves crashed across the beam, driving it even closer to the rocks and the cliffs. Clinging to a stay, the Master turned to the figure sitting quietly beneath the deck-shelter. "Do something!" He shouted. "This wind will drive us onto the rocks!"

The figure nodded, then stood. Grabbing onto the rail he grabbed hold of a Talisman around his neck and began chanting, ignoring the spray washing over himself and the crew. Slowly the wind began to turn and the ship found itself in the center of a circle of wind moving away from the threatening shore. The ship settled, now only tossed by the wind-whipped waves.
"You've got ten minutes!" shouted the Weatherworker.

The Master nodded grimly. "That will do!" He shouted a stream of orders at the crew and slowly the ship began to claw away from the lee shore...

Welcome to the Demesnes of Petty-Magick!

Here you will find a new magic system for the RuneQuest Roleplaying Game: Petty Magick. Designed to empower low-level spellcasters with new flexibility, and enabling reuse of existing Rune Spells, the skill-based Petty-Magick system can be included in any campaign.

Rules are provided for the core Petty-Magick skill system and it's Demesnes, including automatic spells, developing skills without adventuring, and researching and learning new spells and tables are provided showing which of the existing Rune Spells can be used by each Demesne. Petty-Magick spellcasters can use Talismans, magic focii and reservoirs of power to power their spells and Hedge Wizards use Familiars, loyal beast companions who can act as scouts and sources of power for their spells.

With new professions, copious numbers of new Petty-Magick and Rune Spells, additional rules to enable Weatherworkin, and spells for the foes of your Player-Characters, Petty-Magick adds an absorbing and exciting dimension to any RuneQuest campaign.

Fully compatible with the RQ OGL (MRQI) and easily upgradeable to MRQII.


Included in this packed sourcebook:

  • Rules for learning and researching new spells
  • Talismans, magical focii to empower spellcasters
  • Rules for binding and commanding Familiars, the loyal companions and scouts of Hedge Wizards
  • Over 30 new Rune Spells usable by Petty-Magick users or by Runecasters, easily able to be absorbed into any campaign
  • Create a storm with extended Rules for weather and Weatherworking
  • New Professions for Petty-Magick characters: the Petty-Sorcerer, the nature-loving Hedge Wizard, Sea Witches, Weatherworkers and more...
  • The Demesnes of Necromancy and Chaos to give dread new depths to your Player Character’s opponents.

Explore the Demesnes of Petty-Magick!
Give your players new opportunities and add a new dimension to your RuneQuest campaign!

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.
