Worldbuilding Power: Evocation

Watermarked PDF

Use energy-harnessing magic in character development, worldbuilding, and adventures!

To evoke is to call forth and manipulate various types of energies and forces. These include fire, electricity, heat and cold, light and darkness, and even eldritch energy itself. It is the magic of raw power. Unlike other categories of magic, evocation comes with no innate moral and ethical considerations other than the way the caster chooses to wield it.

Antagonists will seek to leverage the same forces, with intentions that are clearly not as ethically centered as a protagonist. They will use this category of magic to cause death and destruction, often on a mass scale. The energies they evoke will be put to use furthering their selfish desires. A villain will use evocation as a weapon in their personal arsenal when they execute their evil schemes.

As with all magic, there will be some fear and misunderstanding among the common folk. The title evoker suggests that the caster has access to incredible and devastating power. Such casters will face ill will from those who fear the possible effects of such abilities, no matter how they are used. Many people will be concerned about their lives and property, should they get caught up in a spell’s effect. There may be a great deal of distrust if evocation is used openly, even for defensive purposes.

In this book, we’ll show you how to utilize evocation in your worldbuilding endeavors. You’ll see how it can influence character, setting, and story elements. By the end, you’ll understand how to make evocation into an essential, useful, and entertaining part of your 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.
