Sorcerer

Sorcerers are arcane spellcasters who manipulate magic energy with imagination and talent rather than studious discipline. They have no books, no mentors, no theoriesójust raw power that they direct at will. Sorcerers know fewer spells than wizards do and acquire them more slowly, but they can cast individual spells more often and have no need to prepare their incantations ahead of time. Also unlike wizards, sorcerers cannot specialize in a school of magic. Since sorcerers gain their powers without undergoing the years of rigorous study that wizards go through, they have more time to learn fighting skills and are proficient with simple weapons. Charisma is very important for sorcerers; the higher their value in this ability, the higher the spell level they can cast.

Sorcerers seem to show up regularly as the central hero in fantasy novels; a young inexperienced servant/ stable hand/ sheepherder is really the last in a long line of magic users and has yet to tap their awesome magic potential. It is this innate potential that separates the Sorcerer from any other magic using class. All their ability comes from within and requires no study, no prayer or long hours of practice. Since their brainpower is not used in the acquiring of their magic ability they use their own awareness of self and their own confidence in their abilities to decide what their potential is- that is demonstrated in game terms through their Char.

  • Hit Die: d4
  • Proficiencies: All simple weapons. No armor or shields
  • Skill Points (x4 at 1st level): 2 + Intelligence Modifier
  • Spellcasting: Arcane (Charisma based, no need for memorization, armor-related chance of spell failure is a factor); Sorcerers begin the game knowing all cantrips

The Sorcerer's skills (and the key ability for each skill) are:

  • Concentration (Con)
  • Heal (Wis)
  • Lore (Int)
  • Spellcraft (Int)
