Mercurial Magic

Post by mattstaggs » Mon May 21, 2012 9:45 am

Quick question: when one first creates a wizard or elf, should a mercurial magic roll be made for each one of the starting spells?

What about later? Do I roll a mercurial magic roll for spells gained as the character rises in level, or are the mercurial magic rules only meant for spells that one discovers during the course of an adventure?

Yes. Roll for each spell.

Yes. For each new spell, too.

Yes, reverenddak is completely correct. I asked the same question to Joseph some time back.

Yes and yes.
