I Am A: Neutral Good Human Wizard/Sorcerer (4th/4th Level)
Good A neutral good character does the best that a good
person can do. He is devoted to helping others. He works with kings and
magistrates but does not feel beholden to them. Neutral good is the best
alignment you can be because it means doing what is good without bias
for or against order. However, neutral good can be a dangerous alignment
when it advances mediocrity by limiting the actions of the truly
are the most adaptable of the common races. Short generations and a
penchant for migration and conquest have made them physically diverse as
well. Humans are often unorthodox in their dress, sporting unusual
hairstyles, fanciful clothes, tattoos, and the like.
Wizards are arcane
spellcasters who depend on intensive study to create their magic. To
wizards, magic is not a talent but a difficult, rewarding art. When they
are prepared for battle, wizards can use their spells to devastating
effect. When caught by surprise, they are vulnerable. The wizard's
strength is her spells, everything else is secondary. She learns new
spells as she experiments and grows in experience, and she can also
learn them from other wizards. In addition, over time a wizard learns to
manipulate her spells so they go farther, work better, or are improved
in some other way. A wizard can call a familiar- a small, magical,
animal companion that serves her. With a high Intelligence, wizards are
capable of casting very high levels of spells.
Sorcerers are arcane
spellcasters who manipulate magic energy with imagination and talent
rather than studious discipline. They have no books, no mentors, no
theories just 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.
