This book contains 9 pages of wonderful extras for you magic users in Pathfinder. It is published by Super Genius games and I would say it is heartily worth a read!

With loads of extras for mages (including the ability to get a genie companion) there is plenty to build up on from the Latest paizo book Ultimate Magic. There are new abilities and a two new wizard power sets as well.

Loads of tasty extras to get boost up your spells, loads of information and none of it feel particularly overpowering from a game balance setting.

Ultimate Options: New Arcane Discoveries builds on the new arcane discovery mechanic introduced in Ultimate Magic, providing a variety of new possibilities for modeling classic wizards from fiction and making more interesting wizards for all.

Ultimate Options: New Arcane Discoveries is a 10-page PDF (9 pages if you remove the credits/OGL page) for the Pathfinder RPG written by Owen K. C. Stephens and published by Super Genius Games. This is part of Super Genius Games’ Ultimate Options line.

The layout is a screen-friendly landscape design, with cover art and 1-column on the first page and three columns on the rest. The chart of feats is clear and easy to read. The art is primarily in color and supports the magic and magic-using theme of this product.

New Arcane Discover opens with a discussion about the place of wizard and magic and the use of arcane discoveries (introduced in Paizo’s Ultimate Magic book) to expand on the idea of the wizard as the ultimate masters of magic and its knowledge.

Twenty-nine new arcane discoveries are included which open up a wide variety of abilities: Discoveries that improve elemental attacks, others that enhance various schools in minor ways, one that gains the wizard a genie companion (!), and -for the 20th level wizard- the ability to become undying (bandage wraps are optional)! A wealth of possibilities are provided for interesting character builds.

Lastly there are two new alternate wizard class powers sets: academician, a mage-scholar, and zauberer, which uses a variant spell casting system. Both of which will appeal to certain players types.

Disclosure: As a featured reviewer for RPGNow/DriveThruRPG, I received my copy of this product for free from the publisher for the purpose of this review.
