Special Abilities (from the character card) -
You begin the game with one Spell.
During the game, you always have at least one Spell. (Gain a Spell each time you cast your last Spell).
If your Craft is 7 or more, you always have at least 2 Spells. (Whenever casting a Spell reduces your total to less than 2, draw another Spell immediately to replace it).
Whenever you cast a Spell, if your Craft is 6 or less, you must roll 1 die:
1) The Spell misfires and you lose 1 life.
2) The Spell has no effect.
3-6) The Spell functions normally.
Whenever you draw a Spell card, you may draw from the top of the discard pile instead of the top of the Spell deck. You may only do this if the Spell card on the top of the discard pile is a Spell you have not successfully cast before
Whenever you discard a Spell, it is placed at the bottom of the discard pile.
Character Pack #8 adds a new character, the Apprentice Mage, as a playable option for both human and computer controlled players. The Apprentice Mage might be somewhat familiar to those who have seen the Wild Mage in D&D, she can cast spells but may not always get the result that she wants, unlike the Wild Mage she has no chance of getting better effects only worse ones, nothing at all, and the normal effect. The power of the Apprentice Mage will come later in the game once you raise your craft up to seven or more, something that might take some time and that might make it not worth playing the character unless you like taking risks in the early game to possibly have a stronger game later on. If you enjoy the game and want more character options to play as or to play against this is another good addition to the game.
