The Body Mage

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.
