The True Arcane Story: Cube of Force is a brief product from LPJ Design. The zipped file isn't quite a megabyte in size, and contains a single PDF. This PDF is six pages long, not counting a page for the OGL, and a page of advertising. There are, quite obviously, no bookmarks here.
Due to the brevity of the product, there's really no artwork to speak of. In fact, the only visual design here is that each page has borders of arcane hieroglyphs across the top and bottom. Beyond that, there are no pictures accompanying the text, and so there's no printer-friendly version.
The product opens with the tale of the mage who created the original cube of force, followed by a section of how the item itself was created and refined over time to its current state. Following this are four new wondrous items. The sphere of force and the force battlement are essentially a cube of force in a different shape. The brick of reinforcing is made to be added to a wall to firm it up with the strength of a wall of force. And finally, the bridge of force is exactly what it sounds like.
Minor errors crop up throughout the book, from misspellings to magic items with the wrong aura strength listed. Still, the book does a good job detailing the why and how of the creation of the cube of force, and provides some interesting related items. Altogether, the product accomplishes what it set out to do.
