Combat Magician Edit

This is a Character Class for Step into the Gloom - Nightwatch (3.5e Sourcebook)

This class is NOT suggested for Non-Night Watch campaigns, due to it's powerful abilities.

Combative Others who have shown promise as Spellcasters, Combat Magicians are specially trained for years before becoming full fledged agents. Their abilities are as terrifying as they are deadly, and although they are normally restricted to Evocation, Abjuration, and Transmutation spells, they can learn a few tricks from other schools in order to accent their training.

Making a Combat MagicianEdit

Combat Magicians are front-line fighters, weaving in and out of combat and casting powerful Evocation spells. Before battle, he may use Abjuration spells to defend himself and his allies. Or he may use Transmutation spells to alter his form to become physically more powerful. Or he may do both.

Abilities: Intellignce, Wisdom, and Charisma are all important for this class. Intelligence determines your spells per day and the DCs of your spells. Wisdom allows a Combat Magician to stay in the Twilight for longer periods of time. Charisma determines how easy it is for them to cast spells of an opposing Alignment. Constitution gives him more hit points, and better Fortitude Saves and Concentration checks to stay in the Twilight for even longer.
