Quipu Mystic (Wizard/Bard)

The quintessential wizard is most often portrayed as a book smart, scroll-wielding paragon of magical might. However, there are wizards from the far-flung lands beyond civilization who record their spells within the very lore of their tribes. These quipu mystics serve as both guardians and puissant wilders of their tribal magic, and keepers of the ancient lore of their people. Through the recitation of his tribal lore, the quipu mystic learns to create magical effects that bolster tribal warriors, glean answers from his ancestral spirits, and rediscover long forgotten lore. Although many view quipu mystics as eccentric wildmen, they nonetheless possess great power and knowledge that benefit their tribes or those who associate with them. (Original Concept by Elghinn Lightbringer and inspired by Ascalaphus’ Oral Tradition Wizard archetype)
