:: Spellsword ::


Icon: ir_spells
(PRESTIGE CLASS)
The power to meld swordplay and sorcery is given embodiment in the person of the Spellsword.

A student of both arcane rituals and martial techniques, the Spellsword gradually learns to circumvent the negative effects of armour on magical rites, and can cast spells while wearing armor with less chance of failure than a traditional mage. Moreover, the Spellsword can cast spells through a weapon or store spells there for later use.

Feared by other mages for their ability to cast spells while in armor and treated with suspicion by the common people for their ability to wield magic, the Spellsword often walks the world alone.
