GURPS Thaumatology has GURPS Fourth Edition updates of the best Third Edition magic variants, plus many all-new options. This mighty tome includes: Minor tweaks for the spell-based magic of the Basic Set: restructuring prerequisites and colleges, modifying Magery and mana, new magical energy sources, adapting spells on the fly, and more. Radical revisions of spell-based magic, including detailed versions of the clerical and ritual magic options hinted at in the Basic Set, and the return of that Third Edition classic, "unlimited mana." Traditional alternatives to spells, such as ceremonial, spirit-mediated, and runic magic. World-shaking freeform magic. Magic as inherent powers. An in-depth look at material magic, with new alchemy, herbalism, and enchantment options; rules for free-willed items and magical gadgets; and guidelines for "the stuff of raw magic." Notes on adapting real-world occult concepts - such as the Laws of Magic, astrology, and traditional material components - to any magic system. Guidelines for running magic-oriented games, advice on combining magic systems, and detailed outlines for four distinctly different fantastic campaigns. The softcover reprint contains the same material as the earlier print run (updated for the latest errata, of course!), with black-and-white interiors and a lower price. GURPS Thaumatology requires the GURPS Basic Set, Fourth Edition. GURPS Magic is recommended but not required. The discussions of different magical styles would enhance any game that features magic.

Download and read online Building Imaginary Worlds in PDF and EPUB Mark J.P. Wolf’s study of imaginary worlds theorizes world-building within and across media, including literature, comics, film, radio, television, board games, video games, the Internet, and more. Building Imaginary Worlds departs from prior approaches to imaginary worlds that focused mainly on narrative, medium, or genre, and instead considers imaginary worlds as dynamic entities in and of themselves. Wolf argues that imaginary worlds—which are often transnarrative, transmedial, and transauthorial in nature—are compelling objects of inquiry for Media Studies. Chapters touch on: a theoretical analysis of how world-building extends beyond storytelling, the engagement of the audience, and the way worlds are conceptualized and experienced a history of imaginary worlds that follows their development over three millennia from the fictional islands of Homer’s Odyssey to the present internarrative theory examining how narratives set in the same world can interact and relate to one another an examination of transmedial growth and adaptation, and what happens when worlds make the jump between media an analysis of the transauthorial nature of imaginary worlds, the resulting concentric circles of authorship, and related topics of canonicity, participatory worlds, and subcreation’s relationship with divine Creation Building Imaginary Worlds also provides the scholar of imaginary worlds with a glossary of terms and a detailed timeline that spans three millennia and more than 1,400 imaginary worlds, listing their names, creators, and the works in which they first appeared.

Download and read online Drachenv ter in PDF and EPUB Level, Erfahrungspunkte, Lebensenergie: Wo kommen diese in fast jedem Computerspiel auftauchenden Konzepte eigentlich her? Die Antwort lautet: Sie stammen aus drei kleinen braunen Büchlein, die 1974 in den USA veröffentlicht wurden. In ihnen befanden sich die Regeln für "Dungeons & Dragons" (D&D), das erste Fantasy-Rollenspiel. Alles was danach kam, von "The Bard’s Tale" bis "World of Warcraft", hat seinen Ursprung in diesen sogenannten Pen&Paper-Rollenspielen, die man mit Papier, Bleistift und Würfeln spielte. Viele derer, die man heute als Generation C64 oder als Nerds bezeichnet, saßen in den Siebzigern und Achtzigern mit Freunden um den Küchentisch und durchstreiften als Zwerge oder Elfen Verliese voller Monster. Der Einfluss von Rollenspielen auf die Populärkultur ist immens: Sie tauchen in Dutzenden Filmen und Büchern auf, "Simpsons"- Erfinder Matt Groening und die Schauspieler Vin Diesel, Robin Williams oder Mike Myers sind ebenso erklärte D&D-Fans wie der Schriftsteller George R. R. Martin, Technikpionier Elon Musk oder Comedystar Steven Colbert. Zum vierzigjährigen Jubiläum von "Dungeons & Dragons" zeichnen die Autoren Konrad Lischka und Tom Hillenbrand die Geschichte der Fantasy-Rollenspiele in diesem aufwendig produzierten Buch nach. Über vier Jahre haben die beiden dazu recherchiert und mit Dutzenden Veteranen aus der weltweiten Spieleszene gesprochen, darunter Richard Garriott, Designer der "Ultima"- Computerspiele, Steve Jackson, Miterfinder des interaktiven Buchs ("Der Hexenmeister vom flammenden Berg"), Ian Livingstone ("Warhammer", "Tomb Raider") und Werner Fuchs, dem Macher des erfolgreichsten deutschen Rollenspiels "Das Schwarze Auge". Zusätzlich haben die Autoren Dutzende alte Fotos ausgegraben, darunter viele verschollene und nie zuvor gezeigte Bilder aus den Anfängen des Rollenspiels.

Download and read online The Nazi Occult in PDF and EPUB In the dark dungeons beneath Nazi Germany, teams of occult experts delved into ancient and forbidden lore, searching for lost secrets of power. This book tells the complete history of the Nazi occult programs, from their quests for the Ark of the Covenant, the Spear of Destiny, and the Holy Grail, through their experiments with lycanthrope and zero-point energy. It also includes information on the shadow war fought in the dying days of the Reich as the Nazis deployed strange flying saucers that battled to save their final stronghold in the Antarctic. For years, the Allied governments worked to keep this information from reaching the public, and sought to discredit those few who dared to seek the truth. Now, using a combination of photography and artwork reconstructions, the true story of the most secret battles of World War II can finally be told.

Download and read online Nazi Moonbase in PDF and EPUB In the dying days of World War II, Nazi Germany spent increasingly large amounts of its dwindling manufacturing capability on the construction of a small fleet of flying saucers capable of travel beyond the atmosphere. While these saucers were too few in number to affect the eventual outcome of the war, they did allow for a small, but fanatical Nazi group to escape Germany, first to Antarctica, and then on to the moon! For the first time, the history of the Nazi space program has been revealed - with a focus on the design, construction, and layout of the moonbase. Using detailed maps, the entire moonbase is reconstructed, noting the locations of various important features, such as weapon emplacements, the Vril generator, the air recyclers and water extractors. The book also covers the various attempt by the allies to overcome this last Nazi stronghold through both subterfuge and outright battle.
