Ir highmage
High Mages are spellcasters who grab basic spells by their throat and twist them until spectacular effects emerge. By channeling and warping common spells they accomplish feats of magic beyond their complete understanding - or total control. This makes them particularly dangerous in battle, but also exhausts their spell reserves far more quickly than ordinary magic would.

  • Conversion - A 'combat mode' allowing the High Mage to reinterpret certain spells as higher level magic. Starting with cantrips, this adds one spell level for each level of High Mage, up to level 4 spells at High Mage level 5.
  • Scholar - The High Mage is practiced in mental relaxation and gains a +1 bonus to resting conditions in wilderness and dungeon environments. This bonus increases to +2 at level 4.
  • Experimentation - The High Mage can rememorize spells more often than others. They only have a 50 minute delay between rests.
