The Tome of Advanced Specialist Mages

Watermarked PDF

Brought to you by the wizard known as Khayd'haik in the Tunnels and Trolls community, this T&T supplement provides optional rules for specialist kremm-bending characters for the 7.5 edition of T&T. Some of these specialist character types are suitable for use as player characters in GM-moderated games, some are suitable for use in solo games, and all of them are suitable for use as non-player characters for the GM to spring upon unsuspecting players.

Herein you will find rules for three new specialist spell casting types: the Flex Mage, the Parasitic Mage, and the Themed Specialist Mage, the latter of which is a generic type with over a dozen subtypes, including the Dark Flames Mage and the Trollgod's Chosen, a priestly subtype. Also included are two specialist types, the Combat Psychic and the Kremm Warrior, neither of which cast spells, but bend kremm in other ways to power their special abilities, and are especially suited for solo adventures, even those that do not allow the use of magic.

The Combat Psychic and Kremm Warrior are practically new character types, the rules for which in total comprise about one-half of the book. New rules that support these character types include mental combat adds; Psychic Roguery; mental weight; and the creation, maintenance, and use of kremm weapons and armor.

Well organized, with PDF bookmarks and an active table of contents, this PDF edition will allow you to quickly return to any section for refreshing your memory about any rule. Three versions of the booklet are provided. Two are large 8.25 x 11 inches, with illustrations, one in color, the other in grayscale. The third version is a smaller, 5 x 7 inches, without illustrations, in grayscale, more suitable for viewing on smaller screens.

Enter the world of extreme kremm bending with The Tome of Advanced Specialist Mages.

LdThis is that rarity - a supplement which really adds flavor to the original and truly enhances it. Character classes have been a limiting factor in RPGs since Day One and, though T&T has had them, they weren't restrictive at all. (You'd have to [...]

When I created the 7th edition of Tunnels & Trolls in 1975, i made rolling triples and adding a rule for character creation. It allows players to break out of the bell curve of attribute distribution, and calls for a new class of character--the Spe [...]

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.
