Sorcerer's Guide to Kits
mages have become narrowly trained in a specific field of magic. Specialists
receive one additional spell per spell level than unspecialized mages.
Because of their specialization, these mages receive a +15% chance to
learn spells from their school but suffer a -15% penalty when learning
spells outside their specialty. When saving against spells within his
chosen school, the specialist receives a +1 to saving throws.
Similarly, the specialist's enemies suffer a -1 penalty when saving against spells cast by the specialist within his field. Specialists are unable to cast spells from the opposing school. Mages must be single-classed or dual-classed to specialize with the exception of gnomes. Gnomes can only be illusionists so are permitted to multiclass. A specialist must have a 9 intelligence in addition to the School-specific minimum ability. The prime requisites for specialty mages are intelligence and their School's ability.
Requirements: Race: Human/Half-Elf/Elf, Charisma: 16
Opposition School: Evocation
