The wizard's strength is her spells. She learns new spells as she experiments and grows in
experience, and she can learn from scrolls she finds. In addition to learning new spells,
a wizard can, over time, learn to manipulate her spells so they work better, do more damage,
or last longer.
A few unintelligible words and fleeting gestures carry more power than a battleaxe, when they
are the words and gestures of a wizard. These simple acts make magic seem easy, but they only
hint at the time the wizard must spend poring over hell spell book preparing each spell for
casting, and the years before spent in apprenticeship, learning the arts of magic. Wizards
depend on intensive study to create their magic. They examine musty old tomes, debate magical
theory with their peers, and practice minor magics whenever they can. For a wizard, magic is
not a talent but a difficult, rewarding art.
A wizard usually keeps to the back of a party, damaging and neutralizing enemies with her
wide selection of spells.
