Echoes of Eternity
What’s Your Profession?
- Just because you take a certain class (or archetype) doesn’t mean you have to identify as such. A gunslinger may call himself a cowboy, a warrior. A mage may think himself a Warlock. A witch may think herself an enchantress. A fighter will likely think of himself as a Bladesmaster or Man-At-Arms, etc.
- The people of Prymis have notable difficulty differentiating one type of magic (or class) from another. They may call all magic-users witches or demon lords for example. Even healing could be seen as a vile exchange or undead trickery.
- Be sure to consider your profession. While you may work as a guard or be preparing for life as a mercenary, you may work as a tailor, fletcher, bar keep, baker, etc.

- Read Religion.
- You will need to talk to the DM about your Cleric’s faith, especially if you wish to follow a “God.”
- Many Druids will take a variant archetype dependent upon their community or personal religion, some choosing a terrain more akin to their homeland or possibly a specific animal totem.
- Contact the DM to plan how your character was trained for character creation.

- Contact the DM if you wish to play a Paladin to plan the character’s religion and fixture in the world.
- Contact the DM if you wish to play a Samurai to learn their role/existence in Prymis.
- Sorcerers generally adopt a naturalist philosophy, recognizing how dangerous magical power is as they learn to tame their natural abilities. Thus, they often associate wizards as power-hungry.

- A sorcerer gains their bonus bloodline spells one level earlier.
- Please see the archetype created here. Contact the DM to discuss as a possibility to play with a charisma focus instead of intelligence may be possible as well.
- The Warwlock’s Spells Per Day are not diminished as noted in the archetype based on playtest and review by the DM.
- If the class skill you choose from the bloodline pact is already a class skill (many are), you may choose a different class skill with the DM’s approval. Otherwise, you get skill focus with that skill.
- The Grand Witchfire Hexes are new to the system and may change.
