Posted By Morrus Friday, 28th December, Anybody buy this “adult” Mongoose Encyclopedia Arcane pdf? There is advice for transmuters on how some situations call for subtlety, how to defend against an opponent’s transmutation effects, how it can assist other party members, that sort of thing.

But if Mongoose is to devote one EA book to each of the arcane schools, they gotta do this one to complete the set, and here’s a good place to do it. Nevertheless I had a look through to see if there was anything I could extract for my own use, and was kind of left wanting there too. Most are combat related, but not all; Familiar Figurine for one is basically a safe version of a bag of holding to transport one’s familiar or animal companion in.

I’d give it either a solid 3 or a soft 4 out of 5. There’s not even a foreword like you may expect in which the editor would reflect on the books and how nice it is to see them updated, etc… I was glad to see, though, that the artwork which originally decorated the inside covers of the books has been reproduced in the pages of the Compendium.

Monday, 8th April, Thursday, 2nd May, The full title on the cover is Encyclopedia Arcane: I should say that while researching this review I did come across a statement on Mongoose’s forums that beyond simple updates, there have also been fundamental rules changes incorporating customer feedback, particularly in EA: Posted By Abstruse Thursday, 27th December, The nature of a compilation book makes compebdium hard to give a grade, as a lot of its utility will depend on how much of this previously released material you already have.


The second chapter, The Shape Of Magic, also includes the four compfndium classes and they are as follows: Results 1 to 1 of 1. There’s even a complete index and feat summary list at the end of the book.

All fiends are handled pretty much the same way mechanically, but what if only demons used the rules for attempting to possess characters, while devils instead tried to trap mortals in pacts for their souls? I intend to extract that bit from the book.

The next chapter is Transmutation Spells, there are 29 arcxne total. There are also three power levels of a spell called Alchemistry that allows the caster to drain a magic property from one item and transfer it to another. To summarize, Encyclopedia Arcane: I’m only going to devote one arcanr paragraph to each of the compenfium three books here, as that material has already been released and thoroughly reviewed in years past Compendiumwhich came out in Mayis that compilation.

A lot of it didn’t comepndium a ton of updating as the toughest thing to update to 3. The Channeller focusing on one of the energy typesThe Maker one who can create permanent lifeThe Skinshifter an arcane path to the druid’s wild shape abilityand The Windchaser a caster who harnesses, and eventually becomes one with, the wind. Each of the original EA books ran 64 pages, and with a total of pages in this hardback this pretty much a compsndium presentation.

Posting Quick Reply – Please Wait. The updates are fairly straightforward; the skills mentioned in the Prestige Class write-ups are updated, the spells look pretty much the same as before and you’re still going to need Seas Of Blood in order to use the Raise Death Hulk spell.

The wording of the rest of the spell clearly intends it to mean that a creature made of flesh is to be turned into stone. A gathered throng of various creatures gazes up from below with serious-looking faces. The significance of the tome, and the relationship between the robed man and the other creatures, is up to the viewer’s imagination.

In my personal world this is a 2 out of 5, but I realize that objectively it’s probably a 3. Monday, 1st August, So I just averaged the grade of the four separate books and it ehcyclopaedia out as a 3 out of 5, nearly a 4, which seems about right for something that’s compendiuum well but still has a hazy feeling of “unratable-ness” about it, kinda like a lot of Greatest Hits compilations in music.

All the credits for the books have been squeezed into one big front page.

Some of them let you do a little more with polymorphing effects than those spells normally allow. The tables now have alternating grey bands to make them a bit easier to read. I’ll go a little more in depth on this one since it’s exclusive to EA: The Shape of Magic by August Hahn is a look at a school of magic that I don’t really think needs any “help”, as I see more spells for transmutation than any other school of arcane magic.

The parts that required the most re-writing were the stat block entries for the monsters that appear towards the end of the book, and this has been done. I see some changes in the formatting, but the encycloaedia still reads the same way beginning to end.

The Dark Road by Matthew Sprange provides the mechanics for characters to attempt to summon and control fiends, risking their eternal souls for great power. Similar Threads Encyclopedia Arcane: encycloopaedia
