Arcanology Point Buy

From MassiveCraft Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The Arcanology Point Buy is part of the bigger Test System. Please read the Proficiency Page first before reading this one. The Arcanology Point Buy provides Packs for the Character to become knowledgeable in certain magical theories, though this does not necessarily make them a Magic user as this governs only wisdom. Getting any of these packs does not make the user an Occult or Aberrant regardless of whether the Pack includes the wielding of Planar Essences that would normally make someone an Occult or Aberrant. Each Pack also has a number of Specials assigned to it, which confers some mechanical uses in roleplay, but are not classified as Abilities.
