The Mage


Turn a new page in the history of magic, with the Mage class. In the spirit of the warrior and the clown, the mage offers players versaility as their core strength. From healing to hurling death, the mage can do it all.

Here's what you get:

  • The Mage class, including fourteen "subclasses" (i.e. subschools): Adventuring, Body, Control, Energy, Entropy, Forms, Grave, Illusion, Lair, Mercy, Pit, Release, Shadow, and Wrath.
  • A new variant and entirely non-Vancian spellcasting system based on augmenting spells as you cast them.
  • 122 unique spells, organized into new Schools and Subschools, for use with the Mage class.

What is the spellcasting ability for this class?
How does this class’s spellcasting system combine with other forms of spellcasting when multiclassing?

Hi Stephanie,

Spellcasting Ability is covered on page 5. Basically, you choose one of your mental ability scores use that as your spellcasting ability. Once you make the choice, you can't change it later.

As for multiclassing, this class doesn't really use "spell slots" at all, so it's easy enough to run it alongside a conventional/Vancian-type caster like a Cleric or a Sorcerer. The Mage spells would have their own Frequencies, and your multiclass caster would use their slots.

Hope you enjoy the Mage!

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
