Black Mage Icon.png


Scholars of the occult who delve into the twisted, and often forbidden, secrets left behind by the Wraiths that once plagued the world are referred to "black mages" by more traditional sorceress. As a black mage, you command tremendous magical power, able to blast your foes with magic, corrupt their minds, or even bind spirits to do your bidding. You must have great willpower to control such magics, though, and you'll need both cunning to resist the temptations and dangers of magic, and the presence to overbear and command dangerous spirits. The life of a black mage is one of power through knowledge and secrets.

Name Starting Boost Affinities Description
Noble Scion Presence +1 Presence
You're the youngest child of a noble family, with all the pampering and prestige that entails — not to mention training in arts of magic or battle to your hearts' content. As the youngest child, though, you had little hope of inheriting power and so now seek your own fortunes on the frontier. Your noble upbringing imparts a bonus to Presence.
Hunter Agility +1 Agility
You were born and raised in the wilderness of the northlands, surviving by your skill with a bow and your attunement with nature. Like you, your parents were adventurers, and left early in your life. You're used to living alone — you're quick, quiet, and fleet of foot after years of living in arboreal solitude. Your life as a hunter has given you greater Agility.
Scholar Cunning +1 Cunning
You were trained in the highest institutes of education in the south, which emulate the legendary colleges of ancient Belhar. The constraints of academia grated against you, however, and eventually you had to strike out on your own. Your rich classical education covered the basics of all manner of scholarly pursuits and the secrets of magic, granting a bonus to your Cunning.
Arcanist Willpower +1 Willpower
You were apprenticed to a hedge witch, a powerful and beautiful enchantress living in the depths of the wilderlands southwest of the Frost Marches. You split on bad terms, forcing you to seek your own fortunes. Your tutelage under the witch has given you a mastery of magic, boosting your Willpower.
