Overview

Basics

Wizard.jpg

Description: Wizards are arcane spellcasters who depend on intensive study to create their magic. To wizards, magic is not a talent but a difficult, rewarding art. When they are prepared for battle, wizards can use their spells to devastating effect. When caught by surprise, they are vulnerable. The wizard's strength is her spells; everything else is secondary. She learns new spells as she experiments and grows in experience, and she can also learn them from other wizards. In addition, over time a wizard learns to manipulate her spells so they go farther, work better, or are improved in some other way. A wizard can call a familiar; a small, magical, creature that serves her.

Special Abilities & Feats

  • Level 1 Scribe Scroll, Summon Familiar
  • Wizard Bonus Feats: Every five levels, the wizard may select a bonus feat, chosen from the Metamagic and Spell feat lists. This bonus feat is in addition to the feats every character gains for advancing in character level. If the character is an epic character then the available feats include those in the epic wizard bonus list. This bonus feat (1 per 5-levels) option is replaced by the Epic bonus feat progression (1 per 3-levels) once the character reaches Epic Wizard levels.

A Wizard may choose to specialize in a spell school, gaining one additional prepared spell per level but losing the ability to cast spells from the opposed spell school. A Wizard does not have to specialize, thus keeping access to all spells.
