    Default Dwarf Magus (Deep Marshal) spell list

    I've been working on a spell list for my dwarf magus for a while now. The Deep Marshal gets the basic magus list minus all enchantment, illusion and necromancy spells, plus all wizard abjuration and a handful of others. As others have noted before, the list is gutted and already gets most of the good abjurations anyway. So I wanted something more flavourful...

    With Deep Marshals being the keepers, protectors and repairers of the underground realms, I worked with the themes of earth, protection, repair, dwarves, wards and caves, with some additional thought into the magus touch abilities and electricity being an eldritch power from the beyond...

    With that I looked at the number of spells per level (0 x16, 1st x30, 2nd x30, 3rd x30, 4th x25, 5th x20 and 6th x20) and separating them into categories. (Battlefield Control, Touch Attack, Blasting, Debuff, Defensive, Mobility, Offensive Buff, Sensory, Restorative, Skill Buff, and Toolbox). Also, many specialised spells are being slightly reskinned to suit.

    And there we go. No objections or requests for clarification. Glad everyone approves. 👍

    *sigh* Dwarves get no love. Sad.
