The Body Mage

Copyright Mason Matchak ©2001

Edited by Rich Kirkland for The Guild Companion

The Body Mage is a semi spell user who combines the realms of arms and mentalism. Body Mages are skilled in combat but has used the magical arts to enhance his physical control and physical form. The Body Mages' spells allow them to perform acts that would be impossible for normal people. However, due to the nature of the Body Mage's magic and training, it is very difficult for them to learn magic of any other kind. As the link between body and magic grows, using magic outside of the body becomes less reliable.

Josiah smiled smugly to himself as the wizard's arcane magic scried him for weapons. As the wizard nodded for him to pass into the castle, Josiah could hardly keep himself from laughing. Weapons? He needed no weapons. He was the greatest weapon ever made. Prime Stats: Constitution, Intuition, Self Discipline

Body Mage Spell Lists

The Body Mage has four Base Lists. For a higher development point cost, he may also develop Open and Closed spell Mentalism. Channeling-using Body Mages are rare.

  • Muscle Mastery: spells altering the caster's muscular structure for various purposes.
  • Body Mastery: spells that give the mage complete control over various aspects of his body's functions.
