"Go to the sign of Harvel's Axe, a dubious inn on the edge of the Thieves Quarter, in the City of Greyhawk, and look to your own wrist. If you perceive a bracelet and dangling dice, watch for the next throw in the war between Law and Chaos and be prepared to follow the compelling geas." -Signal

From the cover:

"Pandemonium is a role playing game that takes place in the weird world of the Tabloids - those tacky looking newspapers you see in the supermarket but are afraid to buy because you don't want your friends to think you actually believe Elvis is still alive, or that evil aliens from a far galaxy have come to Earth to kidnap our women. So you sneak a peek while you're waiting in the checkout line but never actually get up the courage to buy a copy, because what would the neighbors say?
Well, here's your chance to find out what you've been missing!"

Pages from the Mages






From the back of the book:

"Any rogue can craft a spell - but it takes a really reckless fool to write one down."

Thus, the wizard Elminster introduces the latest collection of wizardly lore from the Forgotten Realms campaign setting, including:

New spells from mages such ads Daltim, Darsson, and Myrl.
Fell creatures - the Tome Guardian, the Disenchanter, and the Scalamagdrion.
Details of more than 40 spellbooks - appearance, history, the magic they contain, and what is known of the fates of their makers.
And just for fun - Elminster's very own traveling spellbook!


"All this could have been avoided, of course... If the handful of heedful folk in the worlds'd listen to me but a few moments more, much trouble could be avoided - and, I suppose, much high adventure. Hmmm... perhaps 'tis the doom of humans to always rush in heedless of the costs - and to open and read every old, crumbling book they find." -Elminster"

And why is your companion, the man who paid you to investigate all this, drawing his sword on you and grinning wickedly?"

Why do the animals of Wa disappear, only to return a short while later? Who are the Blue Kumi bandits, and why are they so active? Why do the black geese fly into the Jusofu Mountains? And what fell creature lurks along the southern coast of Wa?

Or does the stench of corruption emanate from the Celestial Bureaucracy itself? Could the danger, unchecked, grow great enough to doom all living creatures in Kara-Tur? Which clues will lead to the truth, and which are merely traps for the unwary...

Test of the Samurai will take the players across the Wa peninsula and to the unknown land of Qui. They will encounter such legendary beasts as the feng huang (phoenix) and the chi'-lin (unicorn) as they attempt to discover the secrets of Wa.
