As a wielder of magic, either through studying or from birth. you have the ability to cast arcane magic.


At 1st level, you know three cantrips of your choice from the mage spell list you learn additional mage cantrips of your choice at higher levels, as shown in the Cantrips Known column of the mage table.

1st Level Spells

At 1st level, you can learn four 1st level spells of your choice from the mage list.

Preparing and Casting Spells

The Mage table shows how many spell slots you have to cast your spells of level 1st and higher. To cast one of these spells, you must expend a slot of the spell’s level or higher. You regain all expended spell slots when you finish a long rest.

You prepare your mage spells that are in your available spell list that you have learned. To do so, choose a number of mage spells that you know equal to your mage level + 2. The spells must be of a level for which you have spell slots.

For example, if you’re a 3rd-level mage, you can prepare two 1st-level and two level 2nd spell slots in any combination that you know. If you prepare the level 1st spell magic missile, you can cast it using a level 1st or level 2nd slot. In any combination from your known spells. Casting the spell doesn't remove it from your list of prepared spells.

You can change your list of prepared spells when you finish a long rest. Preparing a new list of mage spells requires time spent studying or meditating the incantations and gestures you must make to cast the spell: at least 1 minute per spell level for each spell on your list.

Spellcasting Ability

Charisma is your spellcasting ability for your mage spells since you learn your spells through dedicated learning of your powers. You use your Charisma whenever a spell refers to your spellcasting ability. In addition, you use your Charisma modifier when setting the saving throw DC for a mage spell you cast and when making an attack roll with one.

Spell save DC = 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Charisma modifier

Spell attack modifier = your proficiency bonus + your Charisma modifier

Ritual Casting

You can cast a mage spell as a ritual if that spell has the ritual tag and you have the spell in your spell list. You don’t need to have the spell prepared.

Spellcasting Focus

You can use an arcane focus as a spellcasting focus for your mage spells.

Learning Spells of 1st Level and Higher

Each time you gain a mage level, you learn one mage spell of your choice, you learn two mage spells when you gain a new level spell slot (except the level 9th spell slot) at levels 3rd, 5th, 7th, 9th, 11th, 13th, and 15th. Each of these spells must be of a level for which you have spell slots, as shown on the Mage table.

Additional Rule

Spell Versatility

At level 1st, Whenever you finish a long rest, you can replace one spell you learned from this Spellcasting feature with another spell from the mage spell list. The new spell must be the same level as the spell you replace.

Arcane Recovery[edit]

At level 1, you have learned to regain some of your magical energy through meditation or study. Once per day when you finish a short rest, you can choose expended spell slots to recover. The spell slots can have a combined level that is equal to or less than half your mage level (rounded up), and none of the slots can be 6th level or higher.

For example, if you’re a 4th-level mage, you can recover up to two levels worth of spell slots. You can recover either a 2nd-level spell slot or two 1st-level spell slots.

Mage Archetype[edit]

At the 2nd level, you chose an archetype. Choose between Magician, Mancer, Spellsword, Theurgist, Enchanter or Arcane Idol. All detailed at the end of the class description. Your choice grants you features at 2nd, and again at 6th, 10th, and 14th level.

Tome Exchange[edit]

Starting at level 2nd, you have learned to replace cantrips to suit your needs. You can replace any number of your mage cantrips after a short or long rest. Any new cantrips learned will take 10 minutes to learn, while any cantrips that you have learned before will take half that time. This does not include cantrips learned from your race or any feats.

Ability Score Increase[edit]

When you reach 4th level, and again at 8th, 12th, 16th, and 19th level, you can increase one ability score of your choice by 2, or you can increase two ability scores of your choice by 1. As normal, you can't increase an ability score above 20 using this feature.

Flexible Casting[edit]

At level 18th, Your experience of spellcasting has expanded your repertoire to great effect. You can replace any spell you know with another spell for the Mage Spell list after a long rest. Learning a new spell you haven't used before will take a number of minutes equal to the spell's level x 10.

The time it takes to learn and replace cantrips is halved and you can still learn spells the same way for your remaining levels. Any spells swapped out that are from another spell list (e.g a cleric spell for Theurgist) can be swapped back under the criteria listed above.

Arcane Mastery[edit]

At level 20th, your experience over learning and casting spells means that all the spells you know are now always prepared. You still would need to swap out spells if you want to replace them.

Bonus Cantrip

The spells are as follow:

Careful Spell

When you cast a spell that forces other creatures to make a saving throw, you can protect some of those creatures from the spell’s full force. To do so, you spend 1 arcana point and choose a number of those creatures up to your Charisma modifier (minimum of one creature). A chosen creature automatically succeeds on its saving throw against the spell.

Distant Spell

When you cast a spell that has a range of 5 feet or greater, you can spend 1 arcana point to double the range of the spell.

When you cast a spell that has a range of touch, you can spend 1 arcana point to make the range of the spell 5 feet.

Empowered Spell

When you roll damage for a spell, you can spend 1 arcana point to reroll a number of the damage dice up to your Charisma modifier (minimum of one). You must use the new rolls.

You can use Empowered Spell even if you have already used a different Metamagic option during the casting of the spell.

Extended Spell

When you cast a spell that has a duration of 1 minute or longer, you can spend 1 arcana point to double its duration, to a maximum duration of 24 hours.

Heightened Spell

When you cast a spell that forces a creature to make a saving throw to resist its effects, you can spend 3 arcana points to give one target of the spell disadvantage on its first saving throw made against the spell.

Quickened Spell

When you cast a spell that has a casting time of 1 action, you can spend 2 arcana points to change the casting time to 1 bonus action for this casting.

Subtle Spell

When you cast a spell, you can spend 1 arcana point to cast it without any somatic or verbal components.

Twinned Spell

When you cast a spell that targets only one creature and doesn’t have a range of self, you can spend a number of arcana points equal to the spell’s level to target a second creature in range with the same spell (1 arcana point if the spell is a cantrip).

To be eligible, a spell must be incapable of targeting more than one creature at the spell’s current level. For example, magic missile and scorching ray aren’t eligible, but ray of frost is.

Flexible Spell

When you cast a level 1st spell, You can spend 2 arcana points to restore the spell slot you just used as a bonus action. You can spend 1 additional arcana point to use this on higher-level spells slots for every level spell above level 1st, but no higher than level 5th spells.
