Spheres Of Power

Spheres of Power

Spheres of Power is a unique magic system created by Drop Dead Studios for use with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. In this variant system, players choose their magical abilities from among twenty different spheres, spending Magic Talents to create a uniquely customized character. Spheres of Power is more about what you can do than what you can't - it gives you the tools you need to create a character, then lets you decide how to flavor it. For more information about the mechanics, see 'Using Spheres of Power' below.
