Magic means power in the world of the Diamond Throne. Witches, runethanes, and magisters dictate the course of history with the spells they wield. They jealously guard their secrets—but this tome unveils them all for use in your campaign.

This supplement expands the magical options available to all characters in Monte Cook’s Arcana Unearthed. New spells, magic items, and methods of magic enhance any spellcaster's abilities. Ceremonies allow any character to forge mystic bonds with weapons, animal companions, and adventuring allies. New rules for runes expand their abilities while revealing the secrets behind their true nature. And mystic sites provide intriguing new vistas for magical experiments and adventure.

Mystic Secrets: The Lore of Word and Rune is the first magic supplement for Monte Cook’s Arcana Unearthed, but it can also be used with any d20 fantasy campaign.

Mystic Secrets

Saturday, November 13, 2004
Reviewer: Mojh from Canada

Review: After waiting and waiting for another supplement for AU to hit the shelves all I'm left with is a feeling of dissapointment.

This book has a few 'neat' ideas but most of them are either bland or just not overly useful. The new ceremonies for instance provide such a watered down benefit as to be hardly worth the bother. They 'might' be useful at lower levels but by far most of the benefits they provide you, you will already have by mid to high levels from magic items or class abilities.

Rune Manifestations are just watered down potion abilities.

There are NO new Feats. No Prestige Classes (something AU is particularly lacking in).

There are only a handful of spells and very little in the way of new magic items.

The book adds a small amount of flavor for AU but it is lacking in anything really useful to a player (especially a non-Runethane).

Maybe Arcana Evolved will be 'useful'.
