Enoch Posted September 21, 2017 Share Posted September 21, 2017 (edited) Another Sawyr Tumblr that touches on how the Deity-based bonus spells work, relative to specialist Wzards' opposed schools: Let’s take the Priest of Wael and Conjurer. At power level 1 (i.e. 1st level), Priests of Wael can select Arcane Veil as a priest spell. Pretty cool. At PL3 (5th level for single-classed, 7th for multiclass) they gain access to Mirrored Images. At PL5 (9th for single-, 15th for multi) they gain access to Confusion, etc. There are a few things to note: 1. Other than Arcane Veil at 1st level, all other abilities are accessed at a higher equivalent power level than they would be on the wizard list. Mirrored Images is a 2nd level wizard spell and Confusion is a 4th level wizard spell. 2. Multiclass characters gain access to power levels more slowly than single-classed characters, so a single-classed pure wizard can take Mirrored Images at 3rd level, but your Priest of Wael/Conjurer Thaumaturge has to wait until 7th level. So while it technically allows you to get access to the ability, there’s a hefty cost. Somebody with a Tumblr login needs to ask the obvious follow-up to that "can select ... as a Priest spell" language: Will Priests and Druids now need to use level-up resources to select each individual spell, rather than getting access to a whole spell level at once? How restrictive are they planning on being here? Will there be Grimoire-like class items for Priests & Druids to add more spellcasting flexibility?
