Enchantment, also known as charm spells, is magic the affects the mind of the target. A talented enchanter can alter attitudes and emotions, convince them to change their opinions and behaviors, and even compel them to do things they normally would not do.

Antagonists will seek to leverage the same effects, but their implementation won’t be as ethical as a protagonist’s. If they consider the ramifications of robbing another person of their agency at all, they won’t care. They will use this category of magic to control monsters, beasts, and people to fight their battles The behaviors they compel will be put to use furthering their selfish desires. A villain may even use enchantment as a secret trick up their sleeve, to be used if their evil schemes go awry.

As with all magic, there will be some fear and misunderstanding among the common folk. The title enchanter implies that the caster can bend a person’s mind to their will, forcing them to do their bidding. Such casters will face resentment from those who feel such power is innately unethical, no matter how it is used. Many people will fear that they will be manipulated, used, and abused. There may be a great deal of distrust if enchantment magic is used openly, even for nominally beneficial purposes.

In this book, we’ll show you how to utilize enchantment in your worldbuilding endeavors. You’ll see how it can influence character, setting, and story elements. By the end, you’ll understand how to make enchantment into an essential, useful, and entertaining part of your campaign.

Original electronic
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.
