After the ascension of the ancient Wizard Kings at the end of the Second Age, a new breed of magicians, called Sorcerers, claimed power. Seeking to unravel the mysteries of cosmos, they've learned to directly tap into the mana currents and wield magic in its purest form. Sorcerers are capable of summoning magical creatures ranging from shock Wisps to extra-dimensional Eldritch Horrors. Being the most magically focused of all the classes, the Sorcerer wields a wide arsenal of combat invocations and unit and domain enchantments. Sorcerer's domains tend to be loaded with protections such as anti magic domes and guarding glyphs, while they cast corrupting magic on their enemies. Needless to say, Sorcerers favor mana over gold and rely on spells instead of brute force. With their arcane knowledge, they strive to restore the dominance once held by the Wizard Kings.

Class UnitsEdit

Sorcerer's rely heavily on summoned units as their unique ones. The only produced unit is the Apprentice which only requires the Sorcerer's Conflux.

'There is something alive in mana. When I draw upon it, I hear the tiny voices of a million helpers. It is potential. Things that might happen, whisperings of what might be. It is a kinship between me and unlikely events. Upon that power I draw--the residual sparkle in a spell--to summon the Wisp. It responds my music, resisting other casters. Through its visage I see what is hidden. It excites living matter, shocking those with violent intent.'

Experience Ranks:

'A Sorcerer's ability to manipulate magic by channeling it purely through will is extremely dangerous and rare. They test their followers with the hopes that one of them has the same elusive trait. Most apprentices never progress beyond the ability to project bolts of magic at enemies and disrupt enchantments with a touch. Though these abilities seem small compared to the Sorcerer, when a dozen apprentices rain deadly force upon an army and magical enchantments fail to function properly, it is little wonder the Sorcerer keeps so many around.'

'Gorgax charged the sorcerer, raising his mighty axe. 'Your body and head have been joined for to long!' The barbarian's quip was clever, but he should have struck without speaking. A blinding flash followed, Three Phantasm Warriors stood where the sorcerer had been. Their bodies were faded; their faces a patch of sickly blue light. Gorgax hewed at one incorporeal form with his axe, but it did little noticable damage. These spectral warriors struck Gorgax from three sides. Then, one saw me in my hiding place. I wish I could tell you the fate of Gorgax, but I fled.'

'The serpent was a construct of magic. It floated in the swirling air beside its summoner. We tried to gather in a defensive formation, but before we could organize, the thing appeared behind us. With a shower of crackling sparks it struck like a bolt of lightning. Our strongest warrior stood stunned, unable to strike. Other footmen rushed the thing. Blow after blow struck the creature, and eventually it succumbed to our counterattack. By then, the sorcerer had another, less pleasant, attack ready.'

'It writhed like the scream caught in my throat. Teeth. Eyes. The smell of blood, fear and something exiled by nature to the forgotten depths. Drooling mouths and so many tentacles. Oh, Eldritch Horror! The mind slides off thee like slime from a fish, an absurdity. It wriggles impossibly floating. What dark age do we beckon, that a mind could concieve of such a force of destruction, and then will all the will of insanity, allow it to continue breaking walls, piercing flesh with barbs? Even here in the asylum, I cannot hide from the memory of it.'
