  • 50 new spells to expand the Middle-earth Grimoire, and new options that allow the Narrator to customise the way spells are cast.
  • New rules for herb-lore, including a dozen sample herbs that can be found throughout the lands of Middle-earth.
  • New rules for enchanted items, accursed items, familiars, books of lore, libraries, and more.
  • Detailed information on the roles of spellcasters and their place in a chronicle, as well as five sample characters, ready for use as NPCs or player characters.
