Vancian Magic Supplement is Back!

Greg Gorgonmilk of Wormskin and Dolmenwood fame has brought back one of his earlier more pirate-ish supplements. His Vancian Magic supplement is available again but only for a limited time.

For more Vancian goodness follow this link to Chris Pound's Dying Earth Spell Generator. It has its naming conventions grounded in Vance's Dying Earth stories but the names are evocative of the formulaic memorization based approach which magic users take when learning spells.

While checking out these links you should certainly check out Greg and Chris's other stuff. Greg has been pumping out quality OSR material for years. Chris has dozens of other name generators as well as links to many other name generators.
