The primary focus of this class is dealing with undead spellcasters. Ideally you'll be able to feint in order to secure a sneak attack with Penetrating Strike and then use the stolen spell for either Arcane Strike or Razing Strike. If necessary, our own spells can be used to power Arcane strike for some extra help on the first attack, or to deal with enemies at range.




Who am I you ask? I'm no one. My mother died when I was born, and I never knew my father. I ran away from the orphanage at a young age and took to skulking in the back alleys of the city. That time is so far behind me now that I do not remember much about it. I only remember how I came to the life I now lead.

There was a band of vagrants that came to the city one day. I do not know what about them captivated me. Perhaps it was their vibrant clothing, the mystery that clung to the very air surrounding them, or the strange tales they told of distant lands. Whatever the reason, when they left the city I followed.
My presence was not unnoticed, and as they continued to travel, I continued to follow. They'd laugh about it sometimes, calling me their little giorgio. I didn't know what it meant then, but I eventually took it as my name. They never let me starve as we traveled, but they made sure that I didn't get my meals without effort. Sometimes I'd do honest work, other times they'd leave food laying aorund as a test to my skills. So as they traveled I continued to follow.

As we traveled, sometimes a mist would surround us, and we'd end up somewhere I could not recognize at all. Every time the mists came they would take me into the caravan to ensure I was not lost in them. To this day I'm not sure why, perhaps they'd grown fond of me, or maybe I amused them. But one thing was certain the more we encountered the mists, the more I began to change.

A latent power awoke in me, never had I been able to cast spells as I'd seen wizards do on occasion, but it began to happen. The knowledge of spells invaded my mind, and with them came nightmares of things to come. I never spoke of them, but occasionally I'd see them come true. My gums also began to swell making speaking with precision difficult, and casting many of the spells that came to me near impossible without great care.

In each city we came to I'd help as best I could, keeping my visions to myself, but the other changes did not go unnoticed. One of my new companions noticed the new power and my difficulty speaking. He spoke of taint and corruption, and took me under his wing.

With his tutelage, I was able to avoid becoming more damaged, and learned new ways to harness my power and skills, including robbing other casters of their own power. He taught me spells that I would not have to speak to use, and how to avoid using all but the most costly of spell components. The others would smile as my progress grew, and I soon grew to consider them as my own family. Sadly this happiness would not last.

I know not what drew them, but as we lay sleeping one night, a swarm of undead came upon us. We fought as best we but it was to no avail. We were decimated. I remember I was laying there dying wen I saw the great monstrosity that had caused our downfall descend to the field. I could see its corpse like figure and knew it to be undead, but nothing else. I could feel an anger and hatred rising in me, and swore that if I somehow survive this, I would hunt down and destroy the one who had did this.

To this day I don't know how I survived my wounds.

I kept my oath though, and I searched for every nest of undead I could. I learned to destroy them all, turning my skills against them, and making my anger a fine edged tool. The more I hunted them, the more I felt the taint in me growing. Rather than turn from it, I made it a tool to turn against my enemies. The punishment to my body and mind are great, but to me it naught but a price to be paid.

I will find it, I will destroy it, I WILL HAVE VENGEANCE!
