Incanter

[advent class]

Bheru Incanter


Rules governing Advent Classes

An Incanter wields ancient runes of power, remnants of a primal language from when the galaxy was much younger, and ki spirits were using language and thought to create planets and shape the fates of all living things

Incanters must invest heavily into their craft and the results are unpredictable, making an Incanter a very rare sight throughout the galaxy. Their labor, however, is rewarded. After they learn the six fundamental runes, they are able to discover new runes, seemingly at random. These runes are powerful, flexible, and extremely effective

Incantations have a verbal and somatic component, requiring an audible invocation paired with a hand gesture. When invoked, a rune of pure light appears in front of the Incanter's hands, hanging in mid-air. Some runes, such as Chord, will follow the Incanter's hand movements
