RMSS Arcane Companion


Since the dawn of time man has struggled to understand the nature of magic...
Now you can explore the origins of the most powerful, but hardest to control, type of magic: Arcane. With this companion, the old rules for Arcane magic are completely revised to be 100% compatible with the Rolemaster Standard System. While some of the concepts from previous companions were maintained, the entire structure of Arcane magic has been revised.
In Arcane Companion you get:
• A discussion of the concepts and premises behind Arcane magic and how GMs can introduce it into their games.
• Guidelines on how to mesh the rules for the Arcane into the Rolemaster Standard Rules, how to handle temporary enchantments (called Bladerunes), and the risks of using Arcane magic.
• Four new Arcane-using professions.
• Rules for controlling the acquisition of Arcane magic (through the use of a new concept—macro lists).
• 46 Arcane spell lists (including 10 Open Arcane Lists, 10 Closed Arcane Lists, and 26 Arcane Base Lists).
• Four new spell attack tables (including Void Bolt, Void Ball, Mana Bolt, and Mana Ball attack tables) and a revised Basic Spell Attack Table.
• A Spell Failure Table for Arcane magic.

Helmut's review is correct. A cheap scanner was used and some pages very slightly off-center, so the edge of a bit of text at the top of the page was partially clipped. 99.9% of the scan is okay, though it's slightly less sharp than a good scan.. Un [...]

Sometimes the text is cut off, for example on page 18. Some tables are hard to read, for example on page 24. Sometimes you can't even read the text at all, for example on page 25 (rightmost column in table T-2.8 looks like black on black) + page 33 + [...]

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.
