Expanding the Spellcraft Proficiency

This comes as something of a follow up to a recent post where newly forged Wizards and their ilk need some sort of old man teaching them all the right moves until they “get” it. The idea that you’re going to spend a LOT of time learning wizardly things really delves into the territory of…

Class Overview

I’ve been doing some work on the Campaign Resources page as more of the classes are being specifically defined, but I wanted to get something out today that gives a brief 2-3 sentence overview of them.
