"The ancient almanac of unusual magic, penned by the wizard-lord Aryxymaraki in the time before the Day Without Night, has been rediscovered…
Within the pages of Aryxymaraki’s Almanac of Unusual Magic, you will find four new kinds of magic-user, each of which uses magic in new and exciting ways:
- Dwarven earthforgers inherit an ancient tradition allowing them to draw on the spark of the divine found in all creation to power their magic.
- Gnomish alchemists are experimenters whose concoctions range from ‘helpful and safe’ to ‘incredibly poisonous’.
- Terran engineers are scientists and builders from another time, whose inventions and tinkering certainly appear magical to most non-technological societies.
- Warlords draw on the chaotic energy of battle, taming it with their practiced tactics and leadership to ensure that their side wins.
These new classes are built for use with Autarch’s Heroic Fantasy Handbook, which provides rules for ceremonial and eldritch magic"
Its been forever since the Aryxymaraki’s Almanac of Unusual Magic Hardback By Matt Jarmak hardback was supposed to appear it seems. Then yesterday it materialized in our mailbox. Its so nice getting ACK's materials like this book because it blends so well with the Autarch’s Heroic Fantasy Handbook. In point fact its simply a PC extension book of that line.
The hardback is a handsome volume printed in the US which is very unusual but the quality of the paper does set it off. And its the fact that there are plans for this book that make it special. You can find a review of it over here that we've already done on the blog here.
The layout is top notch the binding is solid, the whole cloth of the volume is perfect for the ACK's fanatic in me. This is also a perfect book to use with Troll Lords Castles & Crusades. So the timing of this delivery couldn't be better.
