In fantasy tales, cities can be safe havens, goals of quests, or places to visit along the way. Indeed, magical metropolises have served as settings for entire fantasy campaigns, where the heroes can find arcane adventure by going out their own front doors. When it comes to creating fantastic cities, you don't need an eldritch tome crackling with power; you only need GURPS Thaumatology: Urban Magics.

Building on ideas from GURPS Fantasy and taking full advantage of the possibilities opened by GURPS Thaumatology, this volume explores the distinctive nature of urban magic -- how magical groups are organized, what magical practices a city supports, how cities make magic more effective, and how magic makes cities work better. In addition, it looks at the gods, spirits, and monsters that live in cities. All of these come complete with new GURPS rules and options. This supplement also includes:

  • Almost a dozen new templates with varied magical abilities, including suggestions for making them more or less powerful.
  • Five types of magic specific to cities: Tap the power of sacred architecture, urban divination, or ley lines.
  • How to make a city work using the GURPS magic system. Lights, water, power, and sewage -- there's nothing magic can't handle!
  • Eight thematic campaign ideas that keep the action city-centric. Patrol the gritty streets as enchanted investigators, enroll in a magical school, or scheme in mystic mansions.

Whether organizing a mages' guild, tapping a city's unique essence, bargaining with the gods, or designing a magical city-based campaign, GURPS Thaumatology: Urban Magics has what you need!

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
