Arcanum Main Theme

Arcanum, main theme

The in-progress wiki for the "Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura" d20 Pathfinder campaign.

Things to expect:

  1. I have gone back to the original Pathfinder magic system. I'm still using the auras, and still using the stamina system, but I am not making magic based around mana -- there's no good way to balance it. Once I'm done rewriting it all in my Word doc, I'll put it up here. There will also be just a few new spells.
  2. I am adding wizard archetypes based around the eight schools in addition to a standard archetype (for example, a Wilder for evocation, a Sophist for enchantment, an Archmage for abjuration, etc., and a Universalist as the standard). Meanwhile the sorcerer picks and chooses additional abilities as he levels. I'm going to check the other classes afterwards and see if there's things I need to balance between them afterwards.
  3. Still have to finish all of the following: Inventions; Tech Enhancements; Firearms; the Inventor, Priest, and Ranger classes; and the Cleric, Pagan, and Artificer prestige classes.
