HOW TO USE TOME OF MAGIC

Included in this volume is a vastly expended spells list for use in Warhammer Quest. It also has a new magic system for the Game Master. One way to use this resource is to simply replace certain spells from the random spell generator of your chosen magic user with new spells introduced here.

Another is to use the new system. This is mainly for those Game Masters who desires greater control over his monsters. This allows you to specialise your characters with his own selection of spells to wreak havoc on the adventurers. It also gives you control over when you cast which spell, using the vast powers of your magic user to their full advantage.

If you intend to use the counter spells listed in this supplement, it may be wise to allow access of those spells to spell-casting Warriors as well, who will be subject to the same rules as the Monsters.

WIZARDS

In Warhammer Quest, all spellcasting creatures are referred to as wizards. Be they human wizards, Goblin or Orc Shamans, Skaven Seers, or Chaos Sorcerers, the term wizard stands for all. Bizarrely enough, some Daemons can also cast spells, and in this respect they are also 'wizards' in terms of the game rules. Some magic items endow an otherwise ordinary character with the abilities of a wizard, in which case he is also considered to be a wizard for our purposes. Familiars and such creatures are not considered Wizards for our purpose.

Four classes of Wizards

For convenience sake we divide all Wizards into four groups. These four groups represents a spectrum of Wizardly achievement that is measured by levels, ranging from 1 to 10. These are generally divided as follows.

Level 1 Wizard

Level 2-4 Wizard Champion

Level 5-8 Master Wizard

Level 9-10 Wizard Lord

These titles are quite arbitrary, and an individual character might be known by a much grander and more individual title in real life. Amongst some races wizards are called Mages, Shamans or Sorcerers, and in these cases we refer to them as Shaman Champions, Master Shamans and Shaman Lords, but other than the change in title there is no difference between these individuals and other Wizards.

Spells

Wizards are assumed to know hundreds of spells, from complicated time-consuming rituals to party tricks, charms and minor alchemies. However when it comes to a fight, only a limited selection of magic is of any value. In addition, it takes quite a bit of mental energy for the Wizard to hold many of these aggressive and dangerous spells in his head at once. Consequently, the number of spells a wizard can take into combat is limited to his level plus 2.

CASTING SPELLS

In order to cast a spell the player must expend magical power. The amount of power available to the player will therefore place a limit on how many spells he can cast that turn.

A wizard's power comes from the swirling magical energies that blow over the Warhammer World. Because of the way these energies ebb and flow, they are referred to as the Winds of Magic. This energy is represented by the dice rolled on the Power Phase. As Wizards get more experienced, he is better able to tap into this natural magic source. The amount of power available to a Wizard is simply the power dice plus the level of the Wizard.

This pool of power is available to the Wizard for the turn. Any unused power is lost at the end of turn, and the next Power Phase determines the amount of power available next turn.

All spells have a power value, which indicates the amount of power needed to cast it. When a Wizard casts a spell, deduct the spell's power value from the amount of power available to him. When his pool of power is exhausted, he cannot cast any more spells.


Note that wizards can cast more than one spell a turn, but may only cast each spell once. During the next turn, he may cast the same spell again.




Note also that spells that remain in play (such as Curse or Bless) may not be cast on the same Warrior twice, unless the first one was dispelled.


Maintenance

Some spells remain in play after the Wizard has cast the spell. But most of them require the Wizard to fuel its effects but supplying it with power. They have a maintenance cost which is subtracted from the Wizard's power pool right after the Power Phase.

Undoing spells

Some spells remain in play until the Wizard is slain. The Wizard may voluntarily undo the spell by simply not paying the maintainance. Some spells do not require maintenance and cannot be undone unless specifically stated otherwise.

When can you cast spells?

A monster Wizard follows the same rule as Warrior Wizards and may cast spell at any time, except for attack spells.

FAMILIARS

Many Wizards keep a familiar, a small creature that follows the Wizard. They develop a special bond and the familiar often aids the Wizard in some way. Familiars can be something as mundane as a cat or as fantastic as a devious imp. Relationships between the Wizard and his familiar comes in as many forms. Some treat each other as friends, some are in a master-slave relationship, some cooporated to further their own similiar goals and others are bonded by fate or some magical force.

Familiars may stand on the same square as the Wizard or in a square by its own. They may wonder around but usually do not leave the Wizard for long. They generally have the following characteristics but may vary.

Wounds 6

Move 4

Weapon Skill 3

Ballistic Skill 3

Strength 2

Toughness 3

Initiative 4

Attacks 1

Gold (each) 500

Damage 1D6

There are several types of aid, listed below are some possible ones. Choose one for your familiar. They are static and do not change. This is intended as a guide, feel free to tweak them to give the right amount of power to your Wizard.

Spell Store

The familiar knows a spell and allows the Wizard to cast it. It must be of a spell list avaliable to the Wizard. The familiar must be on the same square or an adjacent square for the Wizard to be able to cast the spell.

Spell Aid

The familiar helps the Wizard focus the magic energies, allowing him to reroll any one dice involved in a spell (to hit or for damage or whatever). The familiar may do this once a turn.

Power Store

The familiar can store an amount of power which the Wizard can tap into. For each adventure, the familiar can store about (6 + the Wizard's level) power, which the Wizard can use.

Power Focus

The familiar helps the Wizard to focus the magical energies from the Winds of Magic. This allows the familiar to generate more energy for the Wizard each turn. Each turn during the Power Phase, add 1 or 2 to the power avaliable to the Wizard.

SPELL LISTS

The general basic magic is referred to as Generic Magic. This is essentially the rudimentary magic taught to the Humans by the Elves. Some of the races of the Warhammer World have their own kind of magic, different from Generic Magic, which they use instead of, or as well as, conventional Generic Magic. The Chart below summarises these kinds of magic and explains which races can use which spells.

Wizard Type of Magic

Empire Wizard * Generic Magic, Counter Magic

High Elves Generic Magic, High Magic, Counter Magic

Wood Elves Generic Magic, High Magic (Wizard Lords only), Counter Magic

Undead Generic Magic, Dark Magic, Necromancy, Counter Magic

Dark Elves Generic Magic, Dark Magic, Counter Magic

Orcs and Goblins Waaagh! Magic, Counter Magic

Skaven Skaven Magic, Generic Magic (Grey Seers only), Counter Magic

Chaos Dwarfs Chaos Dwarf Magic, Counter Magic

Chaos Generic Magic, Dark Magic, Chaos Magic +, Counter Magic

Lizardmen Generic Magic, High Magic, Counter Magic

* Empire Wizard refers to Empire trained wizards, which would include Bretonnian wizards and most Human wizards in the Old World. Human wizards from other lands like Cathay and Nippon would likely have different spells.

+ Chaos Wizards are limited to the Chaos Magic of their God, for example, a Tzeentch Sorcerer can only use the Tzeentch Chaos spells. Of course they may also use Generic and Dark Magic, as indicated above. Beastmen Shaman however are not so restricted and may have spells from two or all of the Gods.


WAAAGH! MAGIC

The metabolism of Orcs and Goblins is completely unlike that of Humans, Elves, Dwarfs and most other races. This has profound effects on the way Orcs and Goblins react with the world of magic. Other creatures draw upon the raw power of the winds of magic, but Orcs and Goblins generate their own.

Every greenskin generates a weak magical field, perhaps as a reaction to the surrounding magical field of the Warhammer World. During the intense excitement of combat, this field becomes stronger and merges with the magical fields of all the Orcs and Goblins around him. This gives the greenskins a feeling of communal elation and invulnerability known as the Waaagh!

As the Orcs become more excited the energy of the Waaagh! grows stronger and stronger until it reaches a critical point when the pressure is so intense that it has to discharge itself or burst. The Waaagh always discharges through the most receptive minds, that of an Orc or Goblin Shaman.

Fortunately Shamans learn at an early age that the only way to avoid extreme pain is to allow their minds to release the energies in the form of a spell. In immature Orcs this takes the form of random explosions and unconsciously generated poltergeist activity in which objects mysteriously fly about the room and smash against walls. A mature Shaman learns how to control these powers and turn them to his advantage in the form of energy blasts and radiant spells of destruction.

Gork and Mork

Orc and Goblin Shamans are identified at an early age. Whenever his mates brawl or argue his head starts to hurt, lights flash in front of his eyes, and nearby objects explode and fly about. The young Shaman is easily spotted. He's the one with the sparks flying about his head, glowing red eyes, and noxious green smoke pouring from his mouth.

Shamans are dangerous to be around and other greenskins tend to steer clear of them. Sometimes they are obliged to wear distinctive costumes so they can be easily recognised (and avoided), whilst some are sent out beyond the confines of the camp to commune alone with the gods. All greenskins believe that Shamans are possessed by Gork or Mork, the most powerful Orc gods, and should therefore be respected and honoured ... but preferably from a distance.

On the outskirts of every greenskin settlement, no matter how rough or temporary, can be found a collection of huts inhabited by the tribe's Shamans. In some places the Shamans live in nearby caves surrounded by skulls on stakes, fetish poles and similar paraphernalia. Amongst the forest-living tribes of Goblins and Orcs Shamans often live in sturdy tree houses perched high above the village huts.

The other greenskins bring the Shaman tributes of food, traditionally mushrooms as these fungi are supposed to help him communicate with the gods. In fact, a constant diet of hallucinogenic mushrooms tend to give the Shamans colourful visions in which Gork and Mork instruct him how to call upon them in battle and how to cast spells of destruction.

Shamans spend a lot of their time watching the colourful hallucinations dance around their minds and talking to Gork and Mork. It is hardly surprising that they tend to be a little vague when it comes to discussing the real world and everyday things. They are convinced that Gork and Mork are real as, after all, they have not only seen them but are on speaking terms. They believe they can call upon Gork and Mork and use the Waaagh to perform great deeds of magic.

Waaagh energy

Instead being dependent on the power phase dice, Shamans draw power from the Waaagh energies generated by his fellow greenskins. For every Orc in Combat, he gets 2 power, for every Goblin in combat, he gets 1 power and for every Snotling in combat, he gets 1/2 power (lit'l greenskin generate less Waaagh! power that their big cousins). This is calculated in the start of the Monster's Phase. Greenskins using missile weapons are not counted, only those engaged in melee. The Shaman is not counted in the above calculation. They generate more Waaagh energy than normal greenskins and are treated differently. The amount of power generated is equal to their level. That is a level 4 Shaman generates 4 power. They generate the energy regardless of whether they are in combat or not.

Waaagh Test

The Shaman must make a test to see if he can control the raw Waaagh power flowing through their bodies. Make the test immediately at the start of the Monster's Phase. If you have combined the monster's phase and the player's phase, then test at the start of the combined phase. Proceed as follows:

  1. Roll 2D6 for every Shaman if there are greenskins present and in combat.
  2. If testing for an Orc Shaman add his level value to the dice score, so a level 1 Shaman adds 1, a level 2 adds 2 and so on. Gobbo Shamans don't add this modifier because they are weaker than Orc Shamans.
  3. If the dice score is greater than the number of greenskins in combat * the Shaman has passed the test. If however his score is greater, he fails the test and must roll on the 'Eadbangerz Chart.

* Snotlings count as 1/2. Models touching the Shaman counts as 2 (except Snotling, which count as 1).

Eadbangerz Chart

6 "Yuuurgh!" The Shaman struggles to keep control. Weird lights flash around his head. Bubbles of magic leak from his mouth and ears. Reduce the amount of power available to him by 2. Otherwise, the Shaman is unharmed and can cast spells normally.

5 "Fzzzzzzap!" Bolts of escaping energy rocket out of the Shaman's ears, nose and mouth. Reduce the amount of power available to him by 3. Otherwise, the Shaman is unharmed and can cast spells normally.

4 "Me 'ead 'urts!" Flashing lights pound around the Shaman's skull making him dizzy and disoriented. The Shaman can't cast any spells this turn.

3 "I've forgot!" The Shaman suffers a momentary brainstorm and forgets one of his spells for the rest of the combat. Pick one of the spells available to him. The Shaman may not cast the spell for the rest of the combat.

2 "I fink I'm gonna....." The Shaman vomits out an explosive blast of magic and collapses in an unconscious heap. The heads of any greenskins in base contact will explode unless they can roll equal to or under their Toughness on a D6. Head explosions kill outright regardless of wounds and armour. The Shaman cannot do anything at all until he wakes up at the start of the next power phase.

1 'Eadbang! The Shaman's head explodes with the force of raw power inside. Obviously this is an exceptionally fatal experience and the Shaman is removed from the game. The burst of energy causes the heads of any greenskins in base contact to explode unless they can roll equal to or under their Toughness on a D6.

Shamans

Night Goblins Shamans, Forest Goblin Shamans, and Savage Orc Shamans have further special rules.

A Night Goblin Shaman is able to consume magic mushrooms at the start of his magic phase in order to generate an extra D6 power. However, should he fail his Waaagh test, he must add +1 to his roll on the 'Eadbangerz Chart.

Forest Goblins allow poisoned spiders to bite them, addling their minds but also imbuing them with great magical power. To represent this the Shaman always adds +1 to his score when testing on the 'Eadbangerz chart, and suffers no effects on a roll of a 6.

Savage Orc Shamans are adorned with magical tattoos which enable them to draw extra Waaagh power from Savage Orcs nearby. If there are other savage orcs present, he gains an additional 1/2 power from each Savage Orc in Combat. Also when a Savage Orc Shaman is present, both his and other Savage Orc's tattoos are boosted from 6+ to 5+.

SKAVEN MAGIC

The Skaven worship their own dark god the Horned Rat, the manifestation of their evil schemes to consume the world. Skaven magic draws upon the dark power of evil magic. The Skaven supplement this power with warpstone - concentrated pieces of dark energy blown into the world by howling winds of magic during the collapse of the warp gate. These small chunks of stone radiate malign power, causing the mutation and corruption of mortal flesh.

Only a Skaven can touch warpstone without immediately suffering from its mutating effects, and even they eventually become twisted and warped by its energy. A Skaven sorcerer can consume small lumps of warpstone during the battle and feed upon its power to fuel his spells.

There are two kinds of Skaven sorcerers. The most powerful are the Grey Seers, the lords and masters of the Skaven races, second in power to the Great council of the Thirteen Lords of Decay. The lesser kind of sorcerers are the Warlocks who belong to the Clan Skryre.

Skaven Sorcerers

Skaven sorcerers can supplement their magical energy by consuming lumps of warpstone. Before the game, determine how much warpstone he has. One way to do this is to roll a D3, and use the following chart.

Skaven sorcerer Amount of Warpstone


Warlock Engineer D3-2

Warlock Champion D3-1

Warlock Master D3

Grey Seer D3+1

When a Skaven sorcerer consumes a piece of warpstone, he can add D6 power to his pool. When the Sorcerer consumes a piece of warpstone, he must immediately make a Warp test. This determines whether the sorcerer survives eating the warpstone or whether he is overwhelmed by its power and turned into a monstrous mutant Chaos Spawn.

Warp test

Roll a D6. If the result is more than the number of warpstone consumed the test is passed and the sorcerer is unharmed. If the score is the same as or less, than the test is failed and the energy of the warpstone mutates the Skaven sorcerer into a Chaos Spawn.

The Spawn is a foul blob-like creature that sprouts tentacles, horns, pincers, eye-stalks and extra heads and limbs in a random manner. The Spawn is insane and almost mindless, and hauls its twisted body about in confusion, destroying anything it touches. For rules regarding Chaos Spawn, look at the (forthcoming) Tome of Chaos.

NECROMANCY SPELLS

In the case of some Undead wizards the number of spells they have is not the same as their magic level. This is shown on the chart below.

Magic no. of

Wizard level Spells


Liche 8 level

Necromancer Lord 9-10 level + 2

Master Necromancer 5-8 level + 2

Necromancer Champion 2-4 level + 2

Necromancer 1 level + 2

Vampire Lord 4-7 level

Vampire Count 1-3 level

Recasting spells

A Liche, Necromancer or Vampire with necromancy spells is allowed to cast the same spell more than once in a turn. This is a special ability of the Undead magic and only applies to Necromancy spells. However, the same spell may not be cast at the same target (successfully) twice.

CHAOS MAGIC

Chaos Sorcerers are evil beings that have pursued unholy magic and prayed to dark Gods for power. Most start out as noble Empire Wizards but later find their willpower tested as demons wisper secret words of power in their sleep. Eventualy those lacking in character soon find themselves lulled into Chaos and make the long trek North, sealing their fate. Some Sorcerers delibratley seek out Chaos Gods for favour, using their body and soul as bargaining chips. They quickly find that Chaos Gods always come to collect.

Only the most exceptional of these individuals rise to be Chaos Sorcerers. Not many survive being embraced by Chaos. Those that do emerge as powerful individuals, and are greatly prized as Champions of thier Gods. They are often called to War in the Chaos realms and many have found merciless destruction from the hand of a Khornate Champion, whose disdane for Wizards matches that of his Master.

In addition to Sorcerers and Beastman Shamans, Chaos Daemons have the ability to cast spells. Chaos magic is split into three types, each belonging to one of the three major powers (of course Khorne has no Wizards). As such, daemons of one god may not use the spells of another god. The following table indicates the level of the daemon, number of spells available to the Daemon and the spell list it may draw them from. Note that daemons do not have access to Generic Magic and Dark Magic like other followers of Chaos. Also, only the Greater Daemons have access to Counter Magic.

+ Note that to determine magic level, only Pink Horrors count. Blue ones do not.

COUNTER MAGIC

Spells of this group (except Total Power) are special in that extra power can be used to increase/decrease the chances of success. The power value is the minimum that the caster must spend. All spells have a base chance of success. Take for example Dispel Spell, if you roll 4 or above, the target spell is dispelled. The caster may increase the result of his dice by one for every point of power spent. The caster of the target spell may decrease the result of the dice by one for every point of power.

Spells of this group (except Total Power) are also special in that they may be used as many times as needed, as long as the Wizard has power left.
