Mystic theurges blurred the line between divine and arcane, drawing power from divine sources and ancient tomes alike. While most spellcasters chose one path to magical power, mystic theurges were able to simultaneously master spells common to clerics and wizards. Mystic theurges tended to be fascinated with magic in whatever form it took. They were often obsessed with magical lore, traveling to the ends of the earth to learn some new arcane secret or divine insight.
Sharns often were mystic theurges. Mystic theurges were rare but not unknown within the City of Splendors. They were common among humans of Halruaan ancestry. Scro war priests were mystic theurges.
Abilities[edit | edit source]
Mystic theurges had unparalleled diversity of spells. While they did not have the uninterrupted spell advancement that a cleric or wizard had, they made up for this with versatility.
