Spells: A cleric casts divine spells, which are drawn from the list provided below, as well as all cure and inflict spells of the level that they can cast.
To cast a spell, a cleric must have a Wisdom score equal to at least 10 + the spell level. The Difficulty Class for a saving throw against a cleric’s spell is 10 + the spell level + the cleric’s Wisdom modifier.
Like other spellcasters, a cleric can cast only a certain number of spells of each spell level per day. His base daily spell allotment is given on Table: The Cleric. In addition, he receives bonus spells per day if he has a high Wisdom score.
Clerics pray for their spells. All Wanderer Cleric spells include a vocal component, as they only need to say a quick prayer to their god in order to activate a spell. All material components are replaced by a divine focus component. Other components, XP or Somatic, as the spell requests.
