Kazerabet's Art of Necromancy Volume I: Spells


After the Time of Troubles and before the return of Netheril the art of necromancy flourished, and Kazerabet, Philosopher-Queen of Ysawis, wrote the definitive guide to necromancy. These pages contain 68 classic spells updated from earlier editions for use in your 5th Edition campaign, whether it is set in the Forgotten Realms or Ravenloft or beyond. You'll find benign or white necromancy spells like graft flesh, giving some less evil options while also tempting you to use vile spells like putrefaction or Beltyn's burning blood. You'll also find a feat—gifted in the dark arts—to help any spellcaster use these spells, whether your necromancer is a wizard, cleric, or another class.

Still going through it, but based on the work you did on the elemental magic of Zakhara, I am betting I'll like it. I note some of these I did remake myself, so I'll have to compare versions to see which I like more (may remove my own if this wo [...]

Pretty awesome to see the old school spells in a current format. The book is very aesthetic with great artwork and a very "2nd Edition” feel to it. Professional looking layout. Great job with the spells. Highly recommended product! [...]

Original electronic
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.
