Learning cantrips

Post by Slloyd14 » Sat Dec 06, 2014 11:32 pm

The errata states that it costs 10xp to learn a cantrip. Is there a limit to the number of cantrips a character can know?

The way I read it there's no limits to how many cantrips can be learnt, or Wizardry spells for that matter. But for Wizardry spells you need to find either someone willing to teach it or a spell book containing it, and you can apply the same to Minor Magic.

That can be made as hard or easy as you like too. Cantrips might be easily available to specialist Wizards but an adventurer who just knows a little magic might find it difficult to find someone willing to teach them, a bit of Wizard snobbery perhaps.

Thanks for pointing out the errata by the way, I didn't have it (http://arion-games.com/AFF-Errata.pdf for anyone else who hasn't found it yet).

It's 3 per point in magic minor my edition seems to have answers for all questions like the amount of Customization points. (It's 8)

It just says that for starting characters right? I haven't spotted a limit on how many they can learn later. But you might want to apply it for both.
