So many monsters… only one engineer.
Christopher Sinclair goes out for a walk and never comes back. A successful engineer transported to a world of swords and sorcery, he’s not interested in having adventures. He just wants to go home to his wife. But before he can find a way home, he has to survive in a world where the basis of power is the consumption of other people’s souls. Magic is real and wonderful—or terrifying, depending on who is using it and what they’re using it for. The feudal hierarchy is endowed with supernatural powers that defy belief. And it needs those powers. Because just over the border of civilized lands is the Wild, where unthinkable monsters lurk, ready to pounce on any sign of weakness. Not that there aren’t enough monsters inside the Kingdom of the Rock, where Good and Evil live side by side in the King’s Court, and thugs with the distinction of rank swagger and take what they want. Christopher finds himself dependent on the Church of the Bright Lady for shelter and protection from a dangerous world he does not understand. Until a sword shows up. An ordinary sword, of common metal, but it arrives as either an astounding coincidence or the will of the gods—no one is really quite sure—in the nick of time. Christopher is surprised to find himself a swordsman in the defense of pacifists, a warrior fighting for healers. He turns magic and skill to the task of making firearms, raises an army of teenage peasants, and sets off to change the world. But, of course, it’s never that simple…

Magic Shop
Wizards rarely affect the lives of ordinary people. They cater to the wealthy and the powerful: merchants, artisans, nobles and adventurers. Only low-rank wizards will sell to commoners, and they will mostly deal in alchemy: charms, herbal potions and other scams. Higher rank wizards (5th and up) will tend to earn their keep making magic items. The market for such items is small, being restricted to really rich people, so the wizard will probably only make a few a year. However, the profit margin is such that he can spend the rest of his time studying, investigating and practicing his arcane arts. Alchemy The craft of alchemy is a favorite pastime of wizards. Many of them are convinced that there is a formula to transform lead or other base metals into gold. Who knows – they might be right!
Formulation Lucky charm Cost 1 cp – 1 gp Description A rare and exotic feather, a bit of colored stone, a rabbit’s foot, or some other object imbued by magic with supernatural influence. Superstitious folk believe these objects are like Luckstones, only not as reliable. Wizards encourage this kind of nonsense, and will often be found selling specialty charms claimed to ward off specific diseases or misfortunes. Like lucky charms, these potions have as much effect as the user expects them to have. The most common potion is a “love” potion, intended to arouse desire in the target. Other popular formulations are against minor but chronic complaints such as arthritis (the sorts of things priests – who are healing actual injuries – can’t be bothered with). Some of these potions may have a noticeable effect, but only because they tend to be heavily alcoholic. Useful for opening locks, if you have a drill bit and plenty of time. You can also throw it as a weapon, making a ranged touch attack with at 10 ft range increment for 1d6 acid damage (and everyone within 5 ft takes 1 point of splash damage). A thick, sticky liquid that burns hot, Greek fire is extremely hard to put out, so this substance is the choice of discriminating arsonists everywhere. It can also be used as a ranged touch attack (10 ft increment) for 1d4 fire damage (and everyone within 5 ft takes 1 point of splash damage). The target must then spend a fullround action to extinguish the flames (either by rolling on the ground or tearing off the affected clothing) or suffer an additional 1d4 damage. Grants a +5 bonus on Fortitude saving throws against a specific poison. The effect lasts for up to an hour, so if you know in advance what poison you are likely to suffer, you can take it beforehand. Low-rank wizards will often manufacture and sell supplies to higher rank wizards who can’t be bothered. Collecting and preparing these components is an apprentice’s job. Buying spell components costs 1 gp per spell, but you can cast the spell dozens of times before needing new components.

Spells The most common spell sold by wizards is Prestidigitation. The many uses of this spell allow beginning wizards to make a living off of their magic. The only difficulty is the short duration of the color/flavor effect, but some wizards will double this by the use of the Extend Spell metamagic feat.

Assuming you need other spells, the base rate is 10 gp times the wizard’s level. Wizards don’t get to sell spells very often (unlike priests), so they have to sell them for a lot to make ends meet. Also, they don’t like surprises, unusual requests, or unpredictable adventurers, so they charge a stiff fee to keep these things at bay.
Cantrip Drycleaning Teeth polishing Brewing Flavoring Cost 1 cp per item 5 cp 1 sp 1 sp Description (Prestidigitation) Up to 30 items (or 15 pieces of armor) per spell. Guaranteed not to damage delicate fabrics. (Prestidigitation) The wizard can treat up to six patients per spell. Few wizards can stomach staring into people’s mouths, however. (Prestidigitation) Turn 2 gallons of wine into 1 gallon of brandy by removing unwanted water. (Prestidigitation) Add any imaginable flavor to 1 lb of flour and sprinkle it over a meal. Must be used within the hour, so just before mealtime the house-boys will be running from the wizard’s shop to their master’s kitchens. Sometimes the very rich will have a private wizard cook. (Prestidigitation) Completely change the color of an outfit of clothes – while you are wearing them. Add color to your cheeks, dye your hair and darken and thicken eyelashes. Court ladies will hire a wizard to decorate them for the formal ball; they will retire every hour or two for a few minutes, and return in a completely different color scheme. The Dowager Empress was once said to have worn 30 outfits in a single night, each with its own (fake) set of gemstones. Wizards are more willing than priests to fix objects, since they can’t use their magic to fix people. The wizard will check a whole sack of items for you – but he’ll charge you for each one. He’s not charging you for the spell; he’s charging you because he has to waste his time talking to you. A wizard will ask a lot less questions than a priest, because he just doesn’t care.

Description Wizards are happy to translate ancient texts or incomprehensible messages. They’ll memorize the contents and add the knowledge to their own library after you leave. Having trouble stopping smoking? Wizards will implant an auto-hypnotic suggestion for a small fee. Effectiveness will vary depending on how much you actually want to quit smoking, drinking, gambling, whoring, snoring, or whatever vice drove you the desperate straights of asking a wizard for help. Wizards will charge a hefty fee for this spell. They have a monopoly on the service, the value of information it returns is phenomenal, and handling unknown magic items can be fatal. Not only cursed items are dangerous – accidentally discharging a Wand of Fireballs in your work-room is likely to ruin your day. At least the wizard will do his very best to answer your questions, and for this much money, you can usually count on his discretion – he won’t be tattle-telling to others what your nifty new toy can do. It is very common for wizards to have this cast on their spell-books. Merchants will also find it cheaper and almost as effective as real traps. Again, you’re paying for discretion – a fake trap is no use if the wizard goes around blabbing about it. A high-rank wizard might be able to disable that cursed item for a few rounds, so you can take it off. Unfortunately, finding a wizard over 9th level who will even talk to you is unlikely – and probably just as well.

This is a lot of money to pay for a few hours of protection – unless you’re a thief hiding from a Locate Object spell. At least the wizard won’t give you a lecture while he’s trying to extricate you from that cursed item (or more likely, reverse a Curse/Flesh to Stone/Geas spell). The hard part is convincing the wizard to take the risk of being reduced to a drooling idiot for a few weeks. Since this would expose him to his enemies, you first have to convince him you’re not one of them. However, the friendship only goes one way: the wizard doesn’t really care if the information you receive is true or false. It’s strictly caveat emptor; you pays your money and you takes your chances. One of the few socially useful things a wizard can do is make walls, roads and bridges. Simply turn good solid rock to mud, pour it into wooden molds, and then turn it back into rock. Wizards like showing off, and this spell is not dangerous, so they’ll be happy to make a living off of fortifying your city.

Item Scrolls (1st) Cost Unlikely Description Why would a wizard sell you a scroll? You could just copy it into your own spell book and then what would you need him for? Scrolls are made for the wizard’s own personal use, or manufactured at the command of their master. Buying them on the open market is unlikely except in the most magic-rich societies. This is the price for having the spell cast on an item of your selection, in your choice of color. Some cities will hire junior wizards on a long-term contract to make street lighting, typically paying them a flat fee (1,200 gp a year) for 300 castings (the city still has to provide the material component). In those places Everburning Torches will sell for as little as 55 gp. Many wizards will make potions to order. It’s a safe and profitable business. The only problem is that there are few customers: usually only adventurers want to turn pounds of gold into momentary combat advantages. This is the bread and butter of the wizard trade. Making wondrous items is safe, fun, and unlikely to lead to any recriminations, so wizards will make them whenever they can. Wizards are not really that keen on making weapons for their perhaps least favorite group of people - fighters. However, huge sacks of cash can occasionally convince them to set aside their prejudices. Wizards are even less keen on sharing their unique abilities with non-wizards. Usually they only make wands for their own defense. However, some advanced magocratic societies will manufacture wands for military use. It is an oft-forgotten fact that the ability to make rings does not come until the 12th level. This means there are extremely few wizards who can make rings, and none of them is going to waste their time begging gold pieces from adventurers. Rings are occasionally found, looted, or won; but almost never bought.
