Second month of spring in Ancardia.

Symbolism Edit

Laws, Neutral Magic, Leadership

Bonus Edit

Lawful tendencies (it's harder to change), spells for neutral casters are 10% cheaper in power points, +2 to initial Charisma, starts out with lawful tendencies but gets +2 to Mana and 10 more power points if neutral initially.

Breakdown Edit

Lawful Tendencies Edit

+500 to initial Alignment. The amount of alignment change from both lawful and chaotic actions is reduced by around 20%.

Spells For Neutral Casters Are 10% Cheaper In Power Points Edit

Nice, although less so for Wizards and Priests, who will most likely eventually hit the 50% spell cost reduction cap anyway. Early on it saves around 1 PP per bolt spell cast.

+2 to Initial Charisma Edit

Charisma has some interaction with shop prices and checks to successfully issue orders to companions and pets but the bonus is way too small to be noticed in game.

Starts out with lawful tendencies but gets +2 to Mana and 10% more power points if neutral initially Edit

The Mana bonus doesn't actually function, and the attribute is easy to train for spellcasters anyway. Neutral characters start out with a a few more PP.

Worth nothing is that although normally healers do not start with neutral alignmment, Wand-born healers of chaotic races (orcs, dark elves and trolls) start at N-. Necromancers of lawful races also start at some sort of neutral alignment and so would qualify for the bonus.

Conclusion Edit

Month made for neutral casters. It is probably even stronger on non-wizards, relatively speaking, since the spell cost reduction is more of a factor for them. Gray elven wizard is a popular choice for Wand-borns, although combinations like dark elven healers or dwarven necromancers benefit greatly as well.
