The Compendium of Collaborative Castings

Suggested Price $1.00

A circle of cultists stands around the burning brazier, chanting infernal syllables as they summon the servants of their dark god.

Mages gather around an ornate workstation and pour enchantments onto the masterfully-forged weapons, turning them into magical items of great power.

A coven of hags hurls bizarre combinations of spells and curses at the attacking adventurers in defense of their swamp hut.

Groups of spellcasters working together to cast large rituals is a staple of many fantasy writings. This short document contains rules, examples, and spells for three different types of collaborative magic involving more than one spellcaster working in tandem. Included are rules for “boosting” other spellcasters’ spells to make them stronger, groups of spellcasters working together to cast larger spells that would normally be beyond their abilities, and examples of synergies involving multiple spells cast at the same time.

A secondary goal of this title is to create more uses for underused and underpowered spells such as witch bolt and cloud of daggers.

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.
