The original and jaw-dropping magic in Epic Role Playing is as diverse as it is cool, made up of six distinct disciplines that fit seamlessly into the faculty system. With over 750 spells (called variants, as in: a variant use of the skill), each system of magic has unique powers, its own methods of application, feel and strengths. Alchemy is magic based around the science of chemistry, and relies on reagents to transgress the normal boundaries of gas, liquid and solid. Mentalism is powerful psychological magic, centered on the anatomy of the brain. Metaphysics is magic derived from physics and uses mnemonic equations to suspend or radically alter gravity, heat, light and subatomic forces. Philtrology is potioncraft that relies on the use of herbs for its potent effects. Shen is magic of the harmonious body and mind. Finally, Theurgy is a dark, sorcerous magic powered by familiars. This book is one of four core rulebooks for use with the Epic Role Playing game system.
