Advanced Mage Specializations Overview
This system is intended to allow the implementation of spell-casting "prestige classes". The effect is intended to give spellcasters additional options and specializations tied to a closer or more advanced study of magic.
Each variant caster class has 3 ranks. The first and second ranks can be unlocked by a DM or by PC trainers that hold the third rank and have been designated as trainers by a DM. The third rank can only be unlocked by a DM.
Not every mage will get an AMS class, nor will every mage with AMS get to the third or even second rank. As with all prestige classes on Avlis, IC training, interaction, and RP are necessary to progress. Some AMS classes are better for wizards and some for sorcerers, but either can learn any of them.
Note: Currently, a PC can only have one AMS. In this context, the Pale Master prestige class is considered AMS .
