Spheres of Power is a completely new magic system for the Pathfinder RPG and other D20 systems, built from the ground up to provide an easy and intuitive approach to concept-based magic. Spheres of Power lets you adapt magic to fit your needs rather than forcing games to adapt to the magic, and contains everything players and GMs need to bring a multiplicity of concepts to life through a system of at-will abilities, talent-based magic, and a ki-like system of Spell Points.

Included in this book you will find:

  • 20 Magic Spheres — including alteration, creation, conjuration, dark, death, destruction, divination, enhancement, fate, illusion, life, light, mind, nature, protection, telekinesis, time, war, warp, and weather.
  • 11 New Base Classes — including the thaumaturge, the elementalist, the mageknight, the armorist, the occultist, the eliciter, the soul weaver, the fey adept, the symbiat, the hedgewitch, the shifter.
  • Advanced Magic — including rituals, spellcrafting, advanced talents, and incantations. These systems may be implemented in part or en masse to grant a gaming table complete control over how magic interacts with their setting.
  • Casting Traditions — allowing both players and GMs to customize not only their characters, but even the entire concept of magic itself.
  • Magic Item Creation Rules — adapting the entirety of magic item creation to the new system.
  • NPCs for every new base class to spark ideas or drop into a game.
  • Guilds and Organizations to sprinkle throughout your world.
  • Sample Worlds, ready to play or to provide guidelines for adapting Spheres of Power to a variety of different world and game ideas.

And much, much more!

A friend of mine was telling me about this system and it has peeked my interests. Will there be a conversion to D&D 5th edition?

Hey, will there be a version/update that is compatible with Starfinder? Or can we just use SoP as it is for Starfinder?

This was previously offered as a Print on Demand, on DriveThru, but I only see the PDF option now?

The book has arrived; it hasn't been set up for RPG Drivethru (they use a POD system) but we're in the process of shipping them out to backers and getting copies to Paizo and the d20pfsrd store. We might create a version for sale here as well, but it's lower on our priority list at the moment, what with Gen Con coming up.

How are things looking for the physical copy of this book. I recently purchased and the fact that I have to look at it on my computer or phone is not as great as physically holding a copy I can look at, flip through, and read anywhere.

So with how much I am loving the book, I really have to ask, when is a physical copy gonna be made available for purchase?

Is OneBookShelf going to sell the hardcover/softcover or only the pdf?

OneBookShelf works through a POD system, and requires that our books be formatted in a very particular fashion. We'll look into it, but I don't believe so. You can get the physical books through, though, or by talking to us at a convention.

I'm hoping your missing pages include modified character sheets or even quick-reference sheets that account for the mathematical mechanic changes that the book presents. Even if they're released as separate downloads, their addition would be helpful for those of us who are having difficulty translating the math in the book.

It will; we'll be posting a massive update in about a week, which among other things will include the last two chapters and an altered character sheet for use with the book.

The last 2 chapters (alternate magic item rules and a 'how to use this book' guide for players and GMs) will be added later, but I'm happy to announce that the PDF will be up by Christmas.

Is there any chance this will be out for Christmas?

Adam M October 25, 2014 10:25 pm UTC
There are 4 things I need to redo, as I'm not satisfied with them. Once that's done, we'll be putting out a 'work in progress' version, containing the first 4 of 6 expected chapters, with the rest following as they're finished.

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.
