Incarnates needed! Soulborn required! That's right, the time has come to dust off everyone's favourite supplement! No, not Tome of Battle, Magic of Incarnum! I know you've probably lost it by now, but just turn off the lights and follow the blue glow.

This is a brief one-shot to give people a chance to roll out stuff using Magic of Incarnum.

The setting is a world in which much is the same as in most D&D games, but incarnum is the only kind of magic known; there is limited spellcasting but it's all derived from the same source.

You play as L5 characters tasked with destroying the Necrocarnum Zombie(s) which have been plaguing your town, either because you're heroes or because the pay's good.

Most any WotC books and web excepts are open BUT no "magical" classes aside from meldshapers.
For full character creation rules, see here.

Game Description:

Alternate magic systems interest me. What if there was no Vancian magic, no Wizards, no Sorcerers? What if there were only - in this case - wielders of Incarnum?

Welcome to a world where one of D&D's least-used supplements takes centre stage. Here, all magic comes from the power of souls past - and future. What little magic there is that resembles "traditional" D&D magic will simply be a derivative of incarnum, drawn from the same sources.

This will be a one-shot game in which the players are called upon to hunt down a dangerous necrocarnate, designed to introduce people to Magic of Incarnum or give them a chance to play it, only for non-spellcasters and incarnum classes.

Ah, this is so tempting. I must ponder....

I am interested but I am not sure if I have time to put a character together >_< I've always wanted to play Incarnum so I'll see what I can do.

Well, I'm deliberately asking for characters who aren't necessarily fully fleshed-out storybooks. Since there are just too many people here for the number of slots I'm still going to have to pick on each character's merits but I'm more looking for something quirky or even just refreshingly simple; it's a one-shot so I don't want people to write essays.

Was *this* close to buying the book for 6 bucks today, but I decided to just download it.

I'm so interested in this. I actually did some homebrew awhile back for Incarnum using Warforged.

I would totally play in this if I had the time. Since I don't, I'll just let everybody know that Magic of Incarnum ROCKS!

And it's great to hear that there are people who actually like the book. The number of times I've seen "Any books allowed. But not Magic of Incarnum"...

My usual excuse for that in unfamiliarity. A lot of people are unfamiliar with it.
