Mystic Incarnation - The Magic of Soulshapers (Incarnum for 5e)


Whether as cherished in Celestia or currency in the Abyss, the value of a soul has long been understood by the immortal inhabitants of other planes.

Souls have a magic all their own. While mages study in their towers, warlocks make deals with powerful entities, and priests pledge themselves to a deity, others seek a more esoteric magic unlocked within one's spirit.

Pledging themselves to an ideal, the Devoted unlock exalted or profane power as the masters of soulshaping.

To Exemplars, this energy guides them in a more martial direction, and they draw faith from their own convictions.

Defenders of all life, Totemics adapt abilities from other creatures inhabiting their world.

This document is an adaptation of a previous edition's sourcebook, laying out a new magical soulshaping system and three classes designed to use it. The Devoted is the most skilled at soulshaping, designed to support allies with its features. The Exemplar crusades for a particular ethic, harnessing soulforms on the front lines. The Totemic borrows features from fearsome monsters, adapting their foes' abilities for use against them. Also included are three soul-wielding races: the human cyanin, fey darklings, and reptilian vishtan, as well as a handful of feats for using soulforms with other classes if you'd like only a bit of soul magic.

Rules Edition(s)
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.
