Academies of the Arcane is a role-playing book and the next official release for Troika! Numinous Edition. While it is intended to support Troika!, this new book is a comprehensive toolkit—it will work as well with any game where you might need magical schools, students possessing horrifying cosmic powers, and manipulative and petty faculty members. Within you will find robust tools to create your own magical school: locations, classes, staff and student body, as well as new tables for calamity and magical overload. How you choose to use these items to define your game’s tone and setting are entirely up to you—the book even includes advice for changing around the terminology, descriptions and structures to fit your preferred wizarding world!

  • 36 new student character backgrounds—as many as the core Troika book!
  • Over 90 new spells befitting a wizarding academy.
  • 20+ enormous tables for generating school uniforms, school houses, teachers, locations, events, classes and more.
  • 50 pieces of fabulous original art throughout!
  • Bound to our high standards of book binding. It will last a lifetime!

The most delightful magic school supplement I've ever read. Genius, poetic, ominous, hilarious and unique. Anyone who's ever been interested in magic at all would find something to love in here. The personality packed into this book is enough to fuel a Discworld style series. Already know I'm not going to shut up about this book to my friends for ages.
