The Requiem for Roleplaying ::
Magic Users. Also known as Mages, Sages, Enchanters, Witches, Warlocks,
Summoners, and many other names. These are the guys that make and live in the
ancient towers in deep misty forests, or castles that float in the sky. At lower
levels, they tend to be brash and cocky, as the power of the universe is rather
intoxicating. During mid-life, they tend to be reclusive, locking
themselves away from 'lesser' mortals as they study the higher magics. At old
age, they tend to walk the world looking for ancient tomes of legend, or sit
high in the tower and look out upon the world.
A mage's main interest is knowledge, and through that knowledge, power. They
tend to carry a staff, or small weapon, and wear deep robes.
Act mysterious. Mages are all about acting enigmatic and being very weird. Talk
in riddles, if you can.
Think up strange names for your spells. A fireball might be a fireball to one
mage, called incindiary blast by another, and sphere of flame by another. Have
an idea of where your power comes from. One mage might believe he draws power
from the ether, or aether, another might refer to it as 'weaving reality' and
yet another may draw the power from his spirit.
