Wizards covers . . .
Wizards also includes a template system that walks you through the process of creating guidelines that will help your players make capable and balanced characters. A special section on wizard templates discusses not just spells, but also the special abilities that appear in Cthulhupunk, Mage, Psionics, Religion, Supers and Voodoo. Other features include "quick" and "instant" alchemy, expanded rules for knacks and Magery, and notes on replacing spells with super powers, psi skills and ritual magic.
Wizards offers players and GMs alike sound advice on creating viable and original characters. Each template also comes with 4 examples that cover multiple settings, TLs and power levels, giving you 112 complete sample characters from over a dozen genres that are ready to use as PCs or NPCs.
