Official synopsis[]

From Waterdeep and the Sword Coast to the jungles of Chult and faraway lands of Thay, strange and powerful magics fill the Forgotten Realms. Ancient tomes, powerful spells, fearsome weapons - all these and more await adventurers who can overcome terrible dangers to wield great power.

Ed Greenwood, originator of the FORGOTTEN REALMS game world, and famous game designer Steve Perrin have spent many long days with Elminster of Shadowdale, perhaps the finest sage in the long history of Abeir-Toril. The result of all this work is in your hands; The Magister is a compilation of new spells and items for your FORGOTTEN REALMS campaign.

Some of the new magics described in The Magister were first published in numerous "Elminster" articles in Dragon magazine. The best of these, along with many new fabulous spells and items, appear in this volume.
