∆therjammer (Expert Class)
For some people a journey is about the final destination, while for others it's all about the experiences along the way. ∆therjammers are all about the how, as they ply the expanses between the crystal spheres aboard fantastic and often almost unreal ships. While many ∆therjammers are experienced magic users, it's been known for the talent to spontaneously awaken in an individual when he encounters the 'right' vessel.
Depending on the campaign, an ∆therjammer may be...
- Part of a long familial tradition of otherworldly magic-using pilots moving between worlds.
- A callow youth awakened to new worlds of possibilities upon discovering an abandoned jammer.
- A cocky explorer opening up the final frontier.
Specialist. The ∆therjammer can do with ease what few others can, sacrificing raw power to do so.Class Features Requirements: Sorcery
