The high council of wizards gather to discuss if magic should be valued by someone's INT or WIS.

>> No.78021569

What scale have they conceived of to measure intelligence or wisdom?

Forsooth, what hath happened to the Green Wizard?!?

>> No.78021652

Wisdom is a bullshit stat and should be recycled into something more consistent and intuitively meaningful.
For example, how come rogues are high INT, low WIS, aren't they supposed to be street smart?

Kinda ironic that you'd fail to intuitively grasp what wisdom is

>> No.78021828

Str, Dex, Int only. The other three are cruft.

>> No.78021848

That's a Cardinal but what the hell are the other two?

>> No.78021858

I'll give them charisma; it's the only social stat and thus not redundant like CON or WIS

>> No.78021880

A bluejay and a dove

>> No.78021883

So what is int and wis anyways?
People usually assume int = well, intelligence while wis = experience

But knowledge would normally fall under experience right? Intelligence being how able you are to figure things out, which would be useful for someone like a tracker or crafty individual like that. Useful when figuring things out or trying to discover new things.

But for merely casting spells, it's just a matter of learning them and thus falls under wis.

Magic should be entirely luck based and have nothing to do with INT or WIS.

>> No.78022140

So can anybody cast anything?

>> No.78022169

Yes, but the the stronger the spell the lower the probability of it working. Also the higher the chance it goes disastrously wrong.

>> No.78022173

You need memory too. Intelligence of 18 would be like being able to recall everything you've ever seen at any point time.

Magic should be CHA based. You have to dress up in a really fucking badass wizard outfit if you want to attract the interest of the gods and get them to do your bidding.

>> No.78022449

Only two stats?
Real wizards understand that Intelligence represents one's ability to learn, Wisdom/Knowledge is how well you retain what you learnt, and Reasoning is how well you apply your knowledge.

>> No.78023718

That works for patron based magic, but it doesn't make much sense for those who unleash their inherent magical abilities

Man I have no idea.

The high council of mages obliterates itself following many heated discussions. The low council of mages assumes that INT won the debate.

I don't think charisma based on clothing style is the same thing is the usual interpretation of spellcasting charisma

Ah yes the three elements: fire, water, mushroom

In real life yeah, but DnD is backwards so intelligence is real life wisdom and dnd wisdom is what we call intelligence irl. It's dumbshit but hey ho.
