Arcane Talents provide broad archetypes to flavor your arcane powers.

Talent Name Category Description Restrictions & Requirements
Arcane Prodigy Arcane Despite being an otherwise normal person, you have a subtle arcane ability. Choose one arcane skill. You gain level 2 in that skill and have 3 / 3 energy points, but you cannot advance the skill. Later, you can refund this talent towards the Basic Mage path. Requires NO arcane skills.
Cantrips Arcane You can roll any of your arcane skills as a social or performance skill when you show small, harmless magical tricks and flourishes to an audience of two or three, representing your arcane skills, without needing to spend any Energy Points. This could also include simple conveniences like powering a held light bulb or chilling a drink. Larger performances will still require a standard casting. Requires at least one arcane skill.
Cleric Arcane
  • Piety: When you are casting a nonviolent spell to buff, help, heal, protect, defend, or safeguard someone, you get +1 to the roll.
  • Holy Word: Additionally, once per scene, as a single action, you may roll your best arcane skill (except not Necromancy) to shout a holy statement that you specify, and thereby castigate all enemy devils, demons, undead or cosmic horrors that are present. Depending on the roll vs their defense, all of them you can see may take damage and/or suffer conditions. This costs no EP.
  • Smite: Immediately after you hit with a melee or brawl attack, you can choose to spend 1 or 2 or 3 EP. If you do, the hit deals 4/8/12 extra magical damage of a type you can cast.
Requires at least one arcane skill. Discuss with your GM before taking this to understand what your character understands about the hierarchy of divine and unholy entities in your character's world.
Cosmic Patron Arcane
  • You are sworn in a pact to serve one spiritual or extradimensional being of cosmic power, in exchange for extra spell power for yourself. Clearly identify what you know and do not know about them.
  • While in good standing, you can choose to make any spell roll with 3d6+skill. You are in good standing by default. If you are not in good standing, you will lose this benefit and may accrue penalties for further lapses.
  • To remain in good standing, you must perform a significant service for them once per game session. They will specify the service to you telepathically at the start of or before the session.
  • You can contact them telepathically to negotiate further deals and details, requiring a 10-minute ritual (no roll by default).
Requires arcane skill. Negotiate a contract the GM to ensure expectations are aligned OOC/IC before investing.
Elementalist Arcane
  • Your Skill levels in each arcane skill that deals a certain damage type also act as additional damage reduction when you're hit with attacks making use of that damage type.
  • This works for fire, cold, lightning, poison and psychic damage, but not physical.
  • For each instance that you are hit with an element that you are skilled with in this way, you recharge 1 energy point.
  • During battle, when you cast a spell of an opposite element to the spell most recently cast in that battle, you gain +1 to the roll.
Requires at least one arcane skill.
Deep Thoughts Arcane Gain +10 maximum energy points. You will only ever know one arcane skill. If you later gain additional Mage Paths, you gain an extra +7 Energy Points for each one, but you do not learn additional arcane skills. Requires exactly one arcane skill.
Mantra Arcane Your Energy Points now recharge at all times, instead of only while meditating or resting. Requires Meditation Skill.

  • You cannot be healed by spells.
Requires at least one arcane skill.
Warmage Arcane You gain +1 to all casting rolls during battle, +1 to spell damage, and you gain +1 EP each time you defeat an enemy in a battle. Requires at least one arcane skill.
