Wizards are the most versatile type of magic-users, usually not specializing in any one discipline. Their spellcasting style has remained unchanged since magic was first discovered, and works by reshaping the very fabric of reality. Wizards are experts at focusing the ethereal energy around them, which can produce many powerful effects, more than any of the other character classes.
While Wizards tend to classify themselves as white or black magicians, they are all familiar with the same types of spells. White Wizards use their powers for good, while Black Wizards further the forces of evil. A Wizard can use magic to enhance their own abilities, strike down a foe, travel through space, or manipulate the world around them. Because the arcane arts require intense concentration and study, Wizards are not very skilled in non-magical combat, preferring to fight with daggers or other simple weapons such as hooks, scythes, or swords.
The Council of the Arcane is a group of the seven most powerful Wizards in the world, and one of its most important duties is the discussion of new directions that magical research should take; the primary concern of all Wizards is the pursuit of knowledge. The Council also settles any disputes that arise between members of the class, since no other courts truly understand the intricate politics of the Wizards. Young Wizards often journey to the city of Sigil, located on the continent of Auryn. Because the moons imbue this part of the world with a high concentration of magical energy, the city provides the best environment for occult learning.
A Wizard's primary attribute is Knowledge.
