Advanced Sorcery imminent!

Recommended Posts

I couldn't find a PDF available for purchase, only hard copy. Waaaah. I have to wait.

Does anyone know if Chaosium ever bundles the physical copy and PDF? I definitely want the PDF, and maybe the print if it's as great as I hope. If there's a bundle I might just do both at the same time.

Yeah! no PDF available. As a Brit we have to wait for the hard copy to get over here before the fun begins, which usually takes a couple of weeks. I do hope there'll be a PDF up before then, or Ill be late for the party.

Having that book in their warehouse with my name on it..and not being able to devour it, is maddening! I'd hoped for a link to at least the PDF so I could cuddle up with my laptop over the weekend! LOL

I have bought it on pre-order from Amazon, its much cheaper internationally than paying for shipping from Chaosium. Can't wait for it to arrive, but no ETA on Amazon as yet, its likely to be at least a month or so after its published by Chaosium. I hope the pdf is available soon, that will suffice until I hold the actual book in my hands...

I've notice that Chaosium have put out several other books in the passed week. I suppose that's the reason the PDF hasn't gone up for sale yet. Hopefully It'll be downloading onto our hard drives any day soon. I've already pre-ordered my hard copy from a UK game shop I've used for years. I live in Spain now, so mine will have to take a second journey to join my RPG collection. It could be a while.

Just scanning through Advanced Sorcery and one thing occurred to me - If practitioners of Deep Magic are plucked from their families into a secluded training society at 6 years old, shouldn't they get their own culture and career entry with which to replace the usual choices? after all if each one can only master one Sphere and one Glyph, that choice is going to have a significant impact on what other skills they train in.

Maybe an article opening up Deep Magician character creation would be a useful add-on?

I bought it last night, I'm liking what I see but have to wait until I've finished things like taxes this week before I can spend some quality time with it.

But so far: really nice job. Worth waiting for.

Wow. Full price on the Chaosium web site, half price on drivethurpg....

That's not what I'm seeing -- I see $13.17 each place for the PDF. You get rewards at Chaosium. I went with DriveThru just because I have a lot of PDFs there and re-downloading has always been super-easy.

Ahh, I see. Fooled by the DrivethruRPG technique of crossing out an imaginary "full price". "Was $23.95 now $13.17" even though it's never been $23.95. What shonks.

So I've been going through Advanced Sorcery and checking out the Arete section. I see some skill examples listed at 300+...Does this happen?

I've only been playing for less than a year and my players have barely broke 100% in a few skills.

Only POSSIBLY going up 1d6/1d8% per "adventure" seems to make 300% pretty unattainable.

Heh. I agree. I retaliated by putting everything I want on my wishlist and tracking prices on a spreadsheet. When there's a sale I check everything against that (and enter prices). Now I know what a 'good' price is, and DriveThru has trained me to only buy on sale...

It could in Stormbringer, so you should be able to get to those levels here, though it will be difficult.
