Warriors of the Twilight Edit

The constant warfare in Moscow eventually battle-hardened even the most gentle of Others. As such, the Watches set up training facilities where they could teach their warriors how to utilize their powers most effectively. As the years went on, certain patterns began to emerge. As with all things, students trained by the same teacher will have similar techniques. In fact, the different types of Warriors trained were eventually called Classes.

Character Classes Edit

This is where you will start your career. The Advanced Classes presented in this book have steep requirements. And it's quite possible your first level in that prestige class will be at Level 11. The reason for this is to dissuade min/maxers from taking a few levels in every prestige class in order to become Ungodly Powerful.

The following is a list of Character Classes available for players to take at Level One.

Twilight Magician Edit

While normally paired up with a Combat Magician or a Warlock, it is not uncommon for Twilight Magicians to operate as a singular agent, especially if their assignments involve subterfuge.

Making a Twilight Magician Edit

Twilight Magicians are utilized best by casting defensive spells and evading his enemies through the Twilight. However, Against Others who have a better affinity with the Twilight, they will stick to defensive spells, and spells that allow them to see deeper into the Twilight and attack their foes with powerful Evocations. All schools of Magic are open to Twilight Magicians, but they suffer the same penalties when casting spells with a differing alignment that all Twilight Spellcasters face.

Abilities: Intellignce, Wisdom, and Charisma are all important for this class. Intelligence determines your spells per day and the DCs of your spells. Wisdom allows a Magician to stay in the Twilight for longer periods of time. Charisma determines how easy it is for you to cast spells of an opposing Alignment.
