April 29, 2005: GURPS Magic Spell Charts Brand New And Totally Free!

One of the most popular game aids we did for GURPS was the spell prerequisite charts, showing the exact (and sometimes very complex) relationships between spells. Even as we were working on GURPS Magic, we knew we wanted to do a set of charts for the new edition. We also knew it wouldn't be easy.

But after months of exacting work, ex-Warehouse 23 Goddess Michelle Barrett has come through with GURPS Magic Spell Charts, free in PDF form on e23! The charts are totally updated for GURPS Fourth Edition, of course, and not only reduce the work required to determine the prerequisites for a spell, but also reveal the underlying organization of the colleges. For each college, they show how far one can progress at each level of Magery; which spells are central prerequisites for most of the other spells in the college; and how much overlap there is with other colleges. The simple, open format allows for further customization. Color the boxes to show which spells a mage knows and instantly see which ones he is eligible to learn.

And are you ready for the best part? It's FREE! Consider it a test drive of the e23 system with a nifty game aid as a payoff, courtesy of Steve Jackson Games. Have fun!
