So What's The Spellbook Like, Anyway?This week, Raging Swan Press is proud to announce the release of So What’s the Spellbook Like, Anyway? a Pathfinder Roleplaying Game compatible GM’s RESOURCE by Landon Bellavia.

Your PCs have come across a wizard’s spellbook. Perhaps they found it as loot in a dragon’s hoard, or perhaps they are just sneaking a look at it in a wizard’s private library. Beyond just the spell list, the PCs ask “So what’s the spellbook like, anyway?”

So What’s the Spellbook Like, Anyway? helps the time-pressed GM answer this question by providing tables for quickly determining the book’s title, binding material, paper, ink and other distinguishing details. Moreover, it provides a quick way to generate traps and defences for the spellbook, provides possible information on the history of the book or its author, and presents several new preparation rituals that can be used by wizards to enhance their magical abilities.

If you are planning on have your PCs run across a spellbook that could be more than just a simple collection of pages between two covers, then So What’s the Spellbook Like, Anyway? is for you!

You can download a sample and check out the Contents here.

And don’t forget, So What’s the Spellbook Like, Anyway? III is a Dual Format PDF and is included in Raging Swan’s Free PDFs promotion.

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar “Living” campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave’s first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft).

Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.
