From publisher blurb:
Before Uthorion, before Ardinay, there was Pixaud...
Pixaud's Practical Grimoire was the life's work of Pixaud, Second Dean of the Academy of the Four Towers. Inside the Grimoire are:
- Over 150 new spell descriptions
- Revised versions of popular spells from the Aysle Sourcebook and the Torg Rulebook;
- An index to the spells of Aysle, including those in the Torg Rulebook, the Torg Worldbook, and the Aysle Sourcebook; and
- An introduction that supplements the Magic System of Aysle and supplies tips for players and gamemasters alike.
All this, and the helpful annotations of two Master Magicians:
Probably one of the most helpful guides to modern magic use in existence today. I recommend it for journeymen and masters alike. - Zelephest
Buy it. Read it. Throw some spells. Take backlash. Enjoy. - Kenipat
Pixaud's Practical Grimoire is part of Torg, an epic game of adventure, magic and altered reality. This volume describes spells and spell design to supplement the realm of Aysle. This book was created before the Possibility Raiders came to Aysle and contains knowledge that predates written history. Representing perhaps the first attempt by the mages of the mystical realm at unity and centralization of knowledge, the Grimoire has since become the standard by which all other texts are judged.
