Premise

Mages are practicioners of magical arts. Their powers come from the magical energy that permeates the world, and as such, will lose their powerful abilities in areas devoid of magic. Most of their abilities are in the form of Spells. Mages need to be able to move and speak to cast most spells. They are not proficient with many forms of weapons, and medium and heavy armors (leathers and metals) impede their spell casting, causing them to fizzle spells.

Prime Abilities

Intelligence is the primary stat of mages. This stat drives how much mana they receive each level, as well as critical strike and critical damage from spells.
