Lazlo COS Pathfinder - Low Magic
- LCM Wizards are based off the Arcanist class. Their spell casting, spells per day, Arcanist exploits, etc are all drawn from the Arcanist. LCM Wizards are also specialists who must choose 2 opposed schools of magic from which they may not cast at all, and one school of magic which determines their highest levels of magic they can access. Only the spells from within their specialty may be cast at spell levels 4 – 6.
- PC’s can never specialize in Necromancy and it is always among one of the opposed schools chosen.
- Because LCM Wizards are based off the Arcanist base class and do not get specialist bonus spells.
- Feat: Spell Mastery permanently adds spells to the Wizard’s spell matrix. While this does not increase the number of spells the Wizard may cast per day, it does increase the spells prepared for that day, thus adding increased flexibility.
- Spells levels are hard capped at 6th level for PC’s and Boss NPC’s and 5th level for all other NPC’s.
- Wizards cantrips have been replaced with spell-like powers that the Wizard gains at level one. They are limited to Arcane Mark, Detect Arcane Magic, & Prestidigitation.
- Spell completion items (scrolls, wands, potions, etc) have been all but removed under the LCM Ruleset. Please see the Magic Items section.
- All Wizards automatically level several class skills without the need to expend skill point to do so. This is a new class feature: Know: Arcana, Know: Planes, & Spellcraft.
