The Magic of Middle-earth Chapter 8 of Loremaster's Guide Revised

Post by Robin Smallburrow » Sun Jul 02, 2017 10:26 am

Ok, so here is the Second Draft of my revision of Chapter 8 of the Loremaster's Guide, complete with the new Classes: The Cleric & The Conjuror (decided to change the name so as not to confuse with the Background in The Player's Guide)

Comments, feedback welcome!
I am (very slowly) working through Part 3: The Grimoire, so probably final version won't be ready for a few months yet. I would especially welcome someone doing the additional Divine Domains for the Cleric & the Traditions of Magic for the Conjuror (I just found this part too time-consuming).

I've only given this the most cursory of glances so far, but a couple of things stand out already.
  • Your generalization of Sorcery as 'spirit-based' can be better worded; I don't think that phrase accurately captures the essence of this type of Magic. Maybe 'Shadow-based' or 'dependent upon the the marring of Arda'. The more detailed explanation given later does read much better.
  • Phrases such as "The ability to 'do magic'..." might read better as "The ability to perform magic..."
  • Some things that read as typos to me ('practise' for 'practice') might just be preferred British spellings?
I'll look at your work in more detail later.

Here is the Third Draft, with spells for 'A' only (very time-consuming process!) :
