Breath of Flame!
With this Real Scroll from Kobold Press, you won’t just tell your players they’ve found a fire under the tongue scroll — you’ll hand it to them!
This beautifully hand-lettered one-page reference has the feel of a real magical item, with all of the information a player needs to use this astonishing spell in a Pathfinder Roleplaying Game adventure.
Fire Under the Tongue is one of 733 new spells for the Pathfinder RPG found in the Deep Magic compendium.
Review by Endzeitgeist
Real Scrolls #3 portrays Fire Under the Tongue, with somewhat organic/leaf (or flame)-like embroideries to the side of the spell. As an awesome touch, several of the letters feature flame-like extensions and the penultimate “f” of fire in the line that includes the mythic and augmentation options rounds perfectly the space of the page. The scroll comes with a fitting, red border and, as with the previous installments, the ligatures deserve special mentioning for their aesthetic value. Instead of one-letter initials, we have bolded letters in this case and personally, I prefer lavish initials over the (comparatively) common bolding of first words in a paragraph. 4.5 stars, rounded up to 5.
Now If you enjoy artfully crafted calligraphy or have tried your hand with it yourself, if you’re an aesthete, then these will be worth the asking price indeed. If you’re just out there for the crunch, then you might want to skip these. Personally, I hope the series continues – for I’m convinced that RPGs ARE art and crossovers/crosspollinations of different types of artistry tend to result in favorites of mine. I know I’m looking forward to when I can hand out a scroll of fireball to my players and watch their astonished faces!
