Tome of Tomes - 50th Post

So here's number 50 of the series. All in all, I'm pleased with the idea and execution so far. It feels like serial small things like this fit very well with the blog concept.

The Great Astral Chart is a tremendously valuable manual of the astral plane. Within its hundreds of pages lurk mathemagical formulas detailing the flows and moods of that most strange plane, the astral. Understanding the chart requires at least an 18 Intelligence, a14 Wisdom, and a month’s time of detailed study. Those will lower abilities will never grasp the wonders the chart allows. Using The Great Astral Chart when traveling the plane allows the chartmaster and companions to move at one and half times faster than normal, results in only one encounter check per trip (as opposed to the normal three), and also reduces the chance of encountering a psychic wind by half.
