The World of Titan Mage

The world of Titan Mage began with the titans. The colossal beings used might and magic to shear the plains flat, heat the core of the planet, and gift the world with water and sun. Today, their fossilized remains are strewn about the world in hidden groves. Nobody knows how they came to die, but legend says that they gave up their power willingly, to share their earthen canvas with the rest of life's creatures.

Without the chaos of the titan's ongoing construction, the creatures of the world were allowed to grow and evolve. With enough time, the lands became overgrown with all manner of beast. Intelligence alone was not enough to live at the top of the food chain, so lowly humans were relegated to hiding and building what defenses they could, praying that their independent settlements not fall victim to ruin.

But the world is beginning to change once again. Humans are uncovering the magic that the titans left behind. With this newfound power, they are striking out, exploring the world, and trading with others for the first time. It is in this setting that Titan Mage takes place. There is high demand for those who can defend against the wilds. The best adventurers of the world are renowned and exalted, but not many of them are very wrinkled…

What is Needed to Play

All that is needed to play Titan Mage is 3 or more players, a way to print, and a way to view the website. It is recommended to get two sets of RPG dice if you don't want to use the online dice roller.

Titan Mage is meant to be played with three or more players. The sweet spot is 4 to 6 players with one player taking on the role of the Game Master, abbreviated GM from here on out.

Each player requires one full set of RPG dice: a four sided die (d4), a six sided die (d6), a ten sided die (d10), a twelve sided die (d12), a twenty sided die (d20), and a ten sided die with multiples of 10 (used with the d10 to make a d100). It is recommended to have two sets of dice per player so that multi-dice rolls can occur at once. If you don't have any dice yet, you can use the online dice roller.

Creating a Character

Use the following checklist to create a new character.


This section lists some conventions used in Titan Mage.

  • Rounding: Whenever rounding is required, always round up.
  • Dice Markings: Dice with a 0 side are counted as a max value. For example, a 0 roll on a d10 counts as 10.
  • Dice Notation: Damage values are usually marked with die to roll, d6, d10, etc. If multiple dice of the same type are to be rolled, the dice value will be prefixed with a number. For example 4d6 means to roll 4 d6 dice and add the value of all the rolls together. Some dice rolls are marked with a tilde and parentheses ~(2d4). For these rolls, roll 2 dice and subtract the larger value from the smaller. This may use dice of different size, e.g. ~(d4,d6). Always subtract the larger rolled value, regardless of which die has more sides.

Character Stats

Character Level

The level of your character is a measure of how skilled they are at their craft. This skill is manifested in additional stats, features, and magical ability.

Character level starts at 1 and goes up to 16. In order to level up, characters need to both gain experience out adventuring and spend time and money in town. It is up to you to choose when to spend the time and money to learn the next level during your town actions.

At the 6th level, a study under a master is required. Masters are not uncommon, but are not found in every town. At the 11th level, a study under a grandmaster is required. Although most grandmasters are well known in story and legend, not all of them can be easy to find. In order to attain the 16th level, one has to advance their field beyond it's current limits. Work with your DM to discuss your plan for this, as such things do not come with a one size fits all price tag.

Use the following requirements chart to see what it takes to make it to level up. While spending the time to level up, living expenses do not need to be paid, but if others in the party are not leveling up at the same time, they will need to pay them.

The Main Stats

Main stats directly measure character prowess. They influence other stats and are used for determining outcomes in ability checks.

These stats range from 1 to 20. When stats are upgraded, the effects of stats are always retroactive.

Stats are often to modify the damage of attacks or spells as either + stat, + stat/2, or + stat/4. Use the following table to reference these values.

Auxiliary Stats

Health Points (HP)

Health points tracks the life of your character. At 0 HP, your character becomes incapacitated.

Character start with 20 HP and gain five extra HP at every level.

Magic Power (MP)

Magic power tracks the amount of magic that a character can perform. Characters gain extra magic power at every level based on their class.

Character start with 20 MP and gain five extra MP at every level.


Defense provides flat physical damage reduction. Defense is calculated by the armor you have equipped. Most light armor grants defense based on your reflex stat up to a cap. Heavy armor provides flat defense, but this comes at a movement speed cost.

For example, say your armor provides 0 flat defense, reflex/2 reflex defense, and has a reflex cap of 2. If you have 1 reflex, the armor provides reflex/2 = 1 defense. If you have 3 reflex, the armor provides reflex/2 = 2 defense. If you have 5 reflex, the armor provides 2 defense because the reflex cap has been hit.

values with Reflex. Certain abilities are able to reduce an opponents defense and are marked as armor piercing.

Magic Resistance

Magic resistance provides flat magic damage reduction. Magic resistance is rare, and is not provided by any normal armors.

Movement Speed

Movement speed is a measure how fast your character is. In combat, your character is allowed to move up to their movement speed in tiles every round.

A character's movement speed is set to 5 by default. It can be reduced by certain armors and items.

When moving diagonal, treat the first diagonal move as one tile of movement, the second diagonal move as two tiles of movement, then one, then two, etc.


In combat, players and enemies take turns performing actions.

Action Types

A turn is broken up into one powerful major action, one utility minor action, and as many as needed free actions.

Major actions are the powerful actions used primarily to deal damage. If desired, a minor action in place of a major action giving you two minor actions in a single turn.

Minor actions are mostly used to reposition or support using a major action. One is always free to use a minor action in place of a major action.

Free actions are quick light actions such as shouting a command or turning a lock.

Default Major Actions

Weapon Attack

Characters make an attack against an enemy using an equipped weapon.

Weapon attacks are made up of die rolls and flat bonuses. For example, if the weapon damage is ~(2d4) + 1, 2d4 is the die portion, and 1 is the flat bonus.

The damage from the die portion is dealt as pure damage and the damage from the bonus is dealth as physical damage.

Whenever a weapon attack is made, roll a d20. If your presence stat is equal or higher than the roll, this is considered a crit. Double the physical damage portion of the attack.

An unarmed attack can be made for 1 physical damage if no weapons are equipped.

Spell Cast

Characters who are learned in a school of magic can cast any spell that has been learned.


Characters with a shield equipped can use this minor action to activate the effect of their shield. turn pure damage into defense damage and gain the defense bonus from the shield.


When standing over another player who is incapacitated, the defend action prevent them from taking further damage from physical damage. Instead, damage is directed at you.

Second Minor Action

Use a second minor action in place of a major action.

Default Minor Actions


Characters move up to their movement speed.

Minor Spell Cast

Learned spells marked as minor actions can be cast during the minor action of a turn.

Offhand Weapon Attack

Characters with two one handed weapons or characters that took the block major action can attack with the off hand as a minor action. Offhand weapon damage ignores any scaling from stats and only deals damage from the dice rolls. In addition, the dice damage from an offhand attack is dealt as defense damage instead of pure damage.


Drink a potion.


Characters load ammunition into a ranged weapon, a bow for example.

Swap Held Equipment

Characters put away, replace, or take out held equipment.


Characters may prepare a major action for later in the turn order. The conditions under which the major action will occur must be declared this turn.

Turn Order

Turn order is decided by the reflex stat. A higher stat means you go first. Ties are decided by the players.

Damage Types

There are three types of damage in Titan Mage: pure damage, physical damage, and magic damage.

Pure damage can not be reduced by any kind of defense. Pure damage is dealt by the dice portion of an attack role.

Any extra damage dealt by weapons is counted as physical damage and can be reduced by the defense stat. When making a physical damage attack, make sure to roll a d20 to check for crits.

Damage dealt by spells is counted as magical damage and can be reduced by the magic resistance stat. Attacks made with magical damage can not crit.



A blinded character can only make attacks against the last enemy that took their turn. The blinded condition ends at the end of your turn.

Creatures with other heightened senses may not be affected by blindness.


Bleed is applied with a level. For example, you may see bleed (2). Bleed causes you to take extra damage whenever you are hit by an attack. The level of bleed corresponds to the amount of extra damage taken.

When you already have bleed and are inflicted by bleed again, keep the larger of the two bleed levels.

If a healing item or effect is used, all levels of bleed are cleared, and you still heal the full amount.


When chilled, you may only take a major action on your turn. The chilled condition ends at the end of your turn.


Grappled targets are unable to take the movement minor action.


Characters who are exhausted cannot take major actions and their movement speed is reduced by half.


In the fallen condition, you are unable to make ranged weapon attacks and the movement minor action only lets you roll one tile. Standing back up takes a major action.


When a player drops below 0 HP, they become incapacitated. They are unable to take major or minor actions or regain HP normally.

Upon entering the state, the character becomes afflicted by a grievous wound and must roll to find out which.

The player reamins incapacitated until the end of the current fight, after which they will return to 0 HP and can be be healed normally with potion, respite, or other HP restoring effects.

The condition can also be ended in the middle of combat by a spell or item that provides the revive affect, returning the character to 1 HP and ending the incapacitated state.

Every time a character is attacked while incapacitated, they suffer another grievous wound. Some foes may ignore downed combatants, but not all are so merciful.


A paralyzed character is unable to take any action. Defense is set to 0 while paralyzed.


Poison is a condition that is afflicted with a number. For example, you may see poison (3), which applies 3 levels of poison. If a character is poisoned they take their level of poison as damage at the end of their turn, then the level of poison is reduced by one.

If poison is applied again while already poisoned, the poison levels are added together.

If a healing item or effect is used, all levels of poison are cleared, and you still heal the full amount.


Death is the end of your playable character. They have succumbed to their injuries and pass on to the final rest.

This is a good chance to say some final words to your comrades.

Grievous Wound

When a character sustains critical injury, they become afflicted by a grievous wound. Roll a d6 to determine your characters grievous wound. This wounds cannot be removed by normal healing. If any grievous wound, except for Lucky Save, is rolled two times, then the character suffers death.

(1) Lucky Save

Your character sees life flash before their eyes, but fortune favors the lucky. No negative effects are experienced.

(2) Head Trauma

The character is unable to remember details about their past. They must invent a new motivation.

(3) Gnarly Scars

The many wounds gained over time have accumulated and worn down the player. Their maximum HP is halved.

(4) Damaged Arm

Damage to one arm becomes too severe to save. Your character is no longer able to wield two handed equipment and can only wield one one handed equipment.

(5) Damaged Leg

Bone injuries have left the player with a worn gait. Their base movement speed is reduced by two.

(6) Death

The character experiences death.


Recovering is the process of regaining HP and MP. Certain classes regain additional resources while recovering.


A respite is the only recovery that can occur while out adventuring. A respite requires an uninterrupted rest of at least 4 hours. Spending 8 or more hours resting does not increase the resources gained, and a respite can only occur once a day.

After a respite, each player rolls a d6 up to their character level number of times. The players choose whether to add the value on the die rolled to their HP or MP.

Once character level number of respite dice have been rolled, no more can be rolled until a full recovery has occurred.

Respite can be modified by certain classes and magic systems.

Full Recovery

A full recovery restores all of a character's HP and MP, but can only occur in town over the period of a week. A full recovery will reset the number of respite dice rolled back to zero.



Skills are trades that can be learned while in town in order to augment a character's abilities. Skills take three months of time to learn and have an upfront cost. A player character can learn up to level/2 skills at a time.


The alchemy skill allows you to identify potions on your own. In addition, you can craft a simple potion during a respite.

Alchemy requires 1,000 shells to learn.


Appraisal lets you to better determine the value of rare items like gems, idols, and the like.

The smithing skill helps you to determine the value of weapons that you come across. In addition, you can craft common weapons while in town.

Smithing requires 1,000 shells to learn.

Ability Check

Ability checks are a way to use dice in combination with player stats to resolve an outcome.

The DM will ask for an ability check of a player for a particular main stat. It's the player's job to roll a d12 and add their stat to the roll. It will then be up to the DM to resolve outcome.


Speaking with Non-Player Characters (NPCs) is a common part of adventuring. Players may wish to elicit information from a knowledgeable town resident, haggle on the price of a rare artifact, or convince an animal that they are friendly.

When players are expecting a result out of their conversation, it's the job of the DM to recognize this and ask for an ability check. Players have many ways to be convincing, and the strength of their argument can have a great affect on the difficulty of the ability check.

Dialog is also one of the best ways to show off your character's personality!


Your character's motivation describes why they have just become an adventurer. It can be as short as, "I vow to buy back my family's farm from the evil baron", or as long as you enjoy writing it.

An important point to keep in mind is that your character is just starting out. Every character is capable of great deeds, but you get to discover them through playing the game, not crafting a backstory. Discovering who your character is by playing is one of the pleasures of TTRPGs.


Towns provide a safe haven between adventures, a place to rest weary bones, and prepare for what's next.

Living Expenses

Every month of time spent in town incurs living expenses. The price of these expenses depends upon your desired station. It may be tempting to choose meager living expenses, but know that you station effects how others perceive you. The rarest artifacts and most lucrative jobs often go to those of high station. The prices for living expenses are shown in the following table.

Station Monthly Expenses
Meager 10 Shells
Frugal 25 Shells
Average 50 Shells
High 100 Shells
Royal 200 Shells

Town Features

Towns support people from many walks of life. While in town you may wish to make use of services provided there. Not every town provides all of these services.

Adventure Hall

Adventure Halls are places where for hire adventurers can train and scout for work.


Apothecaries sell potions and droughts that may help you while you are away.

Town Actions

You may be returning to town just for the sake of a full recovery, but why not take advantage of what the town has to offer? Time spent in town is devoted to town actions. Town actions occur on the order of months, and each member of the party need not take the same town actions at the same time.

Learning Skills

Time in town can be spent learning a new skill. See the list of skills for time and cost requirements.


Time spent training at an adventure hall allows you to level up. See the level up table for the time ranges and costs.


As your character gains levels, the ability to become a mentor assisting an unplayed character in leveling up becomes available. Players are responsible for creating a full character sheet for their mentee. A mentee must remain at least 5 levels lower than the player character.

Being a mentee takes time equal to the player character's . In exchange for your time and expertise, your character is rewarded with the price of level ups for the level the mentee gains.

Mentees are not able to gain levels back to back. Just like players, they need time to develop their new knowledge. This amount of time is at the DM's discretion.

Mentees may wish to join your adventuring party at such unfortunate times that room becomes available…


Many organizations rely on the generosity of rich adventurers. You may wish to spend time donating funds or volunteering for an organization that your character is aligned with.


Time can be spent researching a topic in town. Asking around, checking scholarly records. Some research tasks can go easier with a little grease.


Adventuring requires extreme preparation. Before embarking, it is wise to stock up on items to help you while away.


By practicing you magic craft, a spell from your spell list can be swapped out.


Taking up temporary work allows you to live with frugal expenses without costing any gold. Performing skilled labor may pay for higher expenses and the DM's discretion.

No magic systems. No class features. Mad respect.

Systems of Magic

The power of the titans left its mark on the world. The study of these marks led to the beginning of the practice of magic. Independently, the studies led in different paths that lead to the groups of magic that are currently known.

Each group requires a lifetime of practice and a focus to the craft. Even then, some advanced magics are only able to be learned by those who give their complete energy to the study. These are known as advanced magics, while the easier magics are called the standard magics.

Ancient Whisperer

The Ancient Whisperers have studied the lost spoken language of the titans. Through great mental exertion, they can recall incantations the forgotten language, shaping the world as the titans once did.

Elementalists draw from the latent magic left behind from the construction of the world.

Elemental spells, called sourceries, can be devastatingly powerful, but rely on the setup and maintenance of elemental catalysts. Elementalists learn major and minor sourceries that can be used as major and minor actions.

Elementalists work with the catalysts of heat, cold, earth, lightning, and dark. Sourceries that create these catalysts are marked with a type and amount, e.g. creates heat 2. Spells that consume the catalysts are marked with type and cost, e.g. consumes heat 1. At the end of the elementalist's turn, the value of each catalyst type is reduced by 1 to a minimum of 0.

The Runecast are warriors that pursue the study of an ancient written language. By etching these runic symbols into their weapons and armor, they are able to bind the power of magic to physical objects, and augment their combat ability.

Runes carved into your weapons and armor can be activated with a minor action for 0 MP. Whenever the the rune is used after it is activated MP is lost. As the Runecast levels up, more runes can be active at once. The passive effects of these runes last until the end of combat when used during combat and at the end of the day when used out of combat. Runecast are only able to modify their own equipment and can not add runes to artifacts.
