Magic-User

Magic-Users are those few who know the mysteries of how to bend energy to their will and have researched how to do this all their lives. Because all their time is spent in study, there is little time to learn how to wear armor properly or wield various types of weapons. Therefore, they are limited to using simple daggers or staves for protection. Magic-Users cannot use shields, nor wear armor of any kind.

While they may appear weak, the ability to cast spells easily makes up for it. At first, Magic-Users are only able to cast 1 spell per day, but as their levels increase, so does the number of spells they can cast daily. When Magic-Users go adventuring, they must keep a journal or a book with them, commonly referred to as their “traveling” spell book.

Inside this book will be recorded all the spells the Magic-User has decided to take on the trip, or as many spells as he is able to learn. A traveling spell book is lightweight and small enough to hide inside a Magic-User’s robes.

The book seems to have an unlimited number of pages, and its owner can easily find a spell by thinking about it while opening
the cover.

A Magic-User must spend at least an hour memorizing his spells for the day from those recorded in the book. The chart shows how
many spells a Magic-User can use each day.

In an emergency, a Magic-User can use a spell from his book as if it were a scroll, but the spell will then disappear from the book for good. A Magic-User may also attempt to copy new spells into his spell book from a scroll.

The Spell Learning chart shows a Magic-User’s spell learning capability based on his Intelligence: the chance of learning a new spell, how many spells he can learn per level, and how many hours it takes to inscribe a spell.
