Diamond Spheres: Thaumic Potential


The first of the Diamond Spheres line of books, Diamond Spheres: Thaumic Potential acts as a substantial supplement to the Spheres of Guile system, especially in the exploration of magical (or magic adjacent) options that the system has already established.

This book has not only been informed by feedback gathered during playtest, but also by requests made specifically by the community as to the things they would like to see in such an expansion of the ruleset.

This book contains 1 new base class: The Conduit, 5 archetypes, and over 20 new combat/skill talents.

Many people were underwhelmed by the original Spheres of Guile book, but Diamond Recreational Studios is doing an amazing job of picking up the system and expanding and improving on it. The class and archetypes are creative, unique, and powerful without being overpowered. Almost everything in this book has worthwhile use cases, and several options facilitate playstyles that have been weak and underdeveloped in Spheres until now.

Remember the "Iron Mage" style builds in first-party Pathfinder that used Item Mastery feats to cast spells from items? The Conduit class is kinda like that, but way cooler, better, and more flexible. It can cast a small number of sphere spells a certain number of times per day, and as it levels, they become augmented with choices of other magic talents for free. Conduits are also the best class at using Spellhacking to hack enemy magic items and effects during combat, something that's otherwise unreliable and not very cost-effective for other classes.

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.
