Wow thanks a lot - i will correct that one.

In the meanwhile i have 90% of my cards on the stack for "redoing" because i found the one or the other failure. It's just crazy how many little things can go wrong. All the more i have learned to appreciate professional work, where they do the same, but under lots of time pressure, and with better quality than me. :D

Hello Anderas, sorry to bother if it is in another thread (I went through the slev thread as well looking for the asnwer). with this system for the wizard, how does he obtain more mastery points? leveling i presume. How do you level him? based on quests, purchasing training with gold etc? and what is the requirements to level up per mastery. Do you happen to have a link to the thread where you discuss this part of the wizard play?

The "mastery" is a score on a spell in my system.

You roll a D6, you add the "mastery".
If you are below your mind points, it works as intended: You pay the cost, you get the effect.
If you are above your mind points, you pay the cost but it doesn't work. Then you can spend the difference (the part you rolled too high) in mind points; in order to make it working.

Example: Your wizard has six mind points. You want to cast the Djinn and keep the card at the same time. You roll D6 plus 4, because keeping the Djinn card is really difficult.
Then you roll a three. Three plus four is seven. Either it didn't work, or you pay an additional mind point and it works.

"Leveling up" the wizard works with the Talisman of Lore and the Wizard's cloak.
Those additional mind points make the wizard really strong.

My system has two effects:
The wizard getting stronger over time (in the beginning he is strong enough, but later he is somewhat meh compared to the others)
The wizard can re-cast some spells, but he will lose mind points in the process, so he can't keep the cards eternally.
