Question for Victor Julio Hurtado or anyone familiar with Dwarfare Games Mage playbook:
I’m super confused about Ranks. Here’s what I understand:
You start with 3 ranks you can apply to any school you wish; on a level up you gain +1 Rank in a previously researched school.
You get a list of abilities for each school you’ve researched, and you can upgrade those using Rank – but it costs 3 Ranks to get there, and then that school is maxed out. So really, schools only have two sets of spell-lists; the ones you get when you start, and then the second set when you spend 3 rank.
However, you can only “spend” all 3 rank within a school at levels 6-10; before that you’re treading water, gaining rank.
Is that correct?
Let’s say I have a Mage that put all her Rank into Abjuration at the start, she couldn’t “spend” all 3 to become an Abjurer, and get the final spells list? She’d have to wait until level 6, right? Is this meant to encourage research into other schools?
