'Songs and Souls of Power' Malhavoc's Biggest Release Yet!

February 12, 2002 (Renton, Wash.)-If you liked the first Book of Eldritch Might, you won't believe what the sequel has in store! Following up his popular arcane sourcebook, designer Monte Cook has packed even more spells, magic items, prestige classes, feats, and monsters into Book of Eldritch Might II: Songs and Souls of Power, on sale now.

For just $7, fans of the d20 System can now buy the latest arcane sourcebook from Monte Cook, codesigner of the new edition of the Dungeons & Dragons(r) game. This book comes as a full-color, illustrated PDF file with a bonus plain-text version for easy printing. New higher-resolution artwork makes Book of Eldritch Might II: Songs and Souls of Power the best-looking Malhavoc Press release yet! And at 64 pages, it's nearly twice the size of its predecessor.

This latest foray into Eldritch Might features completely redesigned alternate versions of the sorcerer and bard classes, including rules for music-based bardic magic; more than 100 new spells and spellsongs; rules for soul magic, a type of arcane power using sentient spells; over three dozen new feats, prestige classes, and magical items; and all-new magical monsters.

This source material, for characters of all levels, fits in well with any campaign. Fans can sample previews of the art and get a new monster free at Malhavoc's website: .

All current Malhavoc Press titles are available in electronic format at . Print versions are published by Sword & Sorcery.
