Magnum Opus is a sourcebook for Promethean: The Created. This book explores the true origins of the Prometheans, the alternate means of creating them, new Refinements and Transmutations, and working with complications in Promethean storylines, from going to the Wastes to working in other supernatural creatures.
From the Onyx Path catalog:
- The Great Work
- Lead into gold. Worthless into priceless. False fire into a mortal soul. This is the quest of every Promethean, but many roads lead to Mortality. Over the centuries, the Refinements have changed, new ones have been discovered and old ones lost, and secrets too terrible for the mundane world have been buried and covered in lies. The Created cannot afford to let these hoary legends go, however — not when one such legend might lead to completion of the Magnum Opus
- A chronicle sourcebook for Promethean: The Created™
- The living history of the Created — secrets, oddities and options for players and Storytellers, including new Refinements
- Detailed discussion of the Pilgrimage and alternate ways to present it in a chronicle
- A new story in the “Water of Life” chronicle begun in Promethean: The Created, set in the Colorado Rockies
- Magnum Opus is a 144 page supplement for Promethean: The Created.

Chapter One: What Is and What May Be Edit
Alternate sources and myths of the Prometheans and the origins of the Lineages. This chapter introduces the concepts of the Constructs, Prometheans made of inanimate materials rather than dead flesh and Extempores, Prometheans born of horrific circumstance. This follows with a number of other myths, including the story of the Prodigal demiurge, the legend of the Scions, the tale of dream-born Prometheans, and the idea of animal Prometheans. Finally, the chapter draws to a close with the stories and Pilgrimage sites of the legendary Seer.
Chapter Two: Rare Alchemies Edit
