Shaper of Form
|“||She didn't have lockpicks, dammit. How'd she get out?||”|
|—Garum, Dwarf Sentinel|
Bards occasionally tell tale, late at night, of primal beings at the very heart of existence that sometimes kidnap young spellcasters. These spirits of form test their captive like alchemists test and sample gold. If they find her wanting, they return her from whence she came without memory. The ones they find worthy become the Shapers of Form.
Becoming a Shaper of Form
The Spirits that create Shapers of Form do not care where the spells originate from, and will take up any spellcaster as long as they are skilled in the arts of transmutation. From wizard to duskblade, any spellcaster can become a shaper of form, regardless of raw power.
