Scholars - Worlds Apart

One of the unexpectedly cool careers from Worlds Apart, IMO. Their spells are quite unique in flavor. (Sorry for the wonky spacing, the WYSIWYG editor doesn't seem to work very when when I cut and paste Word to Blogger)

Scholars: Edu 8+

–1 DM for every previous career.


Knowledge is power: upon it everything is built.


•  Bard: You have a vast body of memorized stories and the wisdom to know when they are of importance.

•  Librarian: You spend your time among books, gaining a wide knowledge in many subjects.

•  Naturalist: You split your time between the shelves and the wild, learning all that you can learn.


Scholars must choose their particular Dweomercraft specialty and Magical Talent specialty during their first term If Scholar is not your first career, you gain *both* of those skill specialties as opposed to choosing a single Service Skill.


If during character creation, you gain a level of Magical Talent that would put your skill level in that Talent higher than your Magic skill, instead increase your Magic skill by one level.
