Basic Modern - Magic Users

Yeah, couldn't help myself. Enjoy!

Council Mage
You grew up on the streets and learned to take care of yourself by beating those who would have hurt you into the ground. You may not like what the street has made you, but you use it to your advantage and maybe to the advantage of others.
Street Fighters typically become either thugs under the employ of crime bosses or as vigilantes who protect the places the police can’t or won’t.
Required Attributes: Intelligence 14+, Wisdom 13+ (+5% experience Bonus)
Hit Dice: 1d4 +Constitution bonus per level
Defense Bonus: +1
Weapons Permitted: None


Council Mage Class Abilities
Caster Zen – When Casting the Council Mage needs to be able to concentrate on his casting or risk losing the spell for 24 hours. If interrupted or distracted while spellcasting the Mage will lose the spell he is casting and has a 25% chance of losing all casting ability for 24 hours.
Foci – At 2nd level the Council Mage can create a Foci that will help them channel one 1st level spell of their choice and doubling that spell’s effect and allowing the Mage to cast the spell additional times per day equal to ½ his level. Once a spell is inscribed into the Foci it is permanent. Should the Foci be lost or broken the Mage cannot create another Foci until 1 year after the original was lost or destroyed.
Magical Resistance –Council Mages receive a +2 bonus to all saving throws involving magic or magic-like abilities.
Street Wizard
You’ve been able to see the world for what it is since you were young; magic is real and so were monsters. Unlike a Council Mage with their traditions and rules you didn’t have a teacher, a guiding light in the darkness of the world … you had to learn yourself, before the monsters ate you.

The Robathen's Coin Parts 1 -3

A long time ago I released a short story on drivethrufiction called "The Rabathen's Coin - An Arame Tale" that was meant to be the start of a series staring a mysterious thief named Arame.  Well, five years later and I have sold maybe six copies.  With that in mind I figured I might as well break it up into two or three parts and post in on the blog.

Thoughts are welcome as I am always interested in what others think of my original works.



I.
The stench of rotten fish, sweat, mildewed wood and the ocean rose up from the black waters of the harbor in a visible mist that hung over the free trade city of Wickend adding to the already strong reek of human filth and cheap ale. The setting sun, unable to pierce the vile mist, washed over the crumbling buildings that lined the twisting streets of the Old District.

Genius Loci's Outlook for Feb/March 2016

Gate File 001 - First Approach
This is the next and the big project for the month of February for my Patreon and the one I want to push for public release in March/April.  The Gate File is being developed for 5th Edition SRD and will incorporate Modern rules and make suggestions as to that fact.

More Fantasy AgeI don't know yet what I want to do exactly but I want to start doing a fan version of my favorite MMO using Green Ronin's Fantasy Age system.  Obviously this will be a "serial numbers filed off" deal for the possibility …
