Among those who study the art of spell casting is a small group of renegades who refuse to follow a strict path. These people have studied long and hard to uncover secrets that were meant to be left undisturbed. Because of this research these men have discovered how to imitate clerical magic and have become known as sorcerers. However, there is a severe price for this knowledge. The gods have abandoned all who follow this path and sorcerers are hunted constantly by clerics, bounty hunters, and assassins. Life is difficult for these people and as a result they are forced to learn to fight and live on their own. Even with these problems, most sorcerers believe the risk is worth it. Besides, there are always people willing to travel with someone who has mastered multiple types of magic.
