Default GURPS Sorcery: Sound Spells

The silence of sound
Is as much a riddle as
The sound of silence
— Nomis, Archmagus of Echoes
There has always been a connection between magic and sound: in chanting, in singing, and in words of power . . . and also in the eerie silences of enchanted places. Yet magic-workers – or at least, their players in RPGs – tend to overlook this in favor of raw destruction (fiery explosions, icy storms, lightning bolts, etc.) and similarly impressive tricks. GURPS Sorcery: Sound Spells is here to rectify the situation.

The latest volume for the GURPS Thaumatology: Sorcery system, Sound Spells presents 35 spells for sorcerers, adapted from GURPS Magic, GURPS Magic: Artillery Spells, GURPS Magic: Death Spells, and GURPS Magical Styles: Dungeon Magic. Each has a detailed description and shows the complete "build" in terms of advantages and modifiers. As a result, they do double duty as cool abilities for just about anybody who possesses superhuman powers!

Get ready to make some noise!

Next up: Light and Darkness, with the subtitle "Hello Darkness my old friend".

(This is a joke).

I'm impressed at how quickly the word got out... I purchased this sight unseen at someone else's* recommendation... because I thought I'd missed when it came out "previously"... not realizing it literally just came out. And I hadn't even seen this thread yet (it hadn't existed when I made my purchase).



* That would be Daigoro.

Yeah, trying to find him, because I wanted to ask him a question. Couldn't find a way on the blog.
