|A Wizard is a magician who does not specialise in any area of magic. Wizards start with a variety of magical skills and with Magic Dart memorised. Their book allows them to progress in many different branches of the arcane arts.|
Wizards are magicians who do not specialize in any area of magic, making them a jack of all trades, master of none when compared to more focused spellcasters. They also start with the highest intelligence of any background.
Some species may receive different items based on their unique restrictions.
Wizards start with the Magic Dart spell memorised.
Starting Skills and Stats
These are adjusted by your species' aptitudes.
- Wizard is probably the most versatile spellcaster background. What they lack in initial firepower, they more than make up for with high Spellcasting and access to some of the best utility spells (Call Imp, Blink, Mephitic Cloud, Conjure Flame). On the downside, Wizards are forced to invest heavily in Conjurations and elemental magic to boost their offensive repertoire.
- If you come upon an awesome melee weapon early in the dungeon, there's nothing to stop you from becoming a hybrid (a warrior-mage) character despite your wizardly background. In that case, depending on your species you should consider picking some strength at level-ups, especially if you have less than 10.
