Welcome to Scarthey (5e) – Sean’s Pick, 051517

The wizarding world of Harry Potter set off a phenomenon across pop culture and all forms of media, so it’s no wonder folks are offering you chances to play out your own “young wizard fantasies” at the tabletop.

I think the following exchange in the comments for the product may be relevant to your interests, if you’re exploring it –

“How does this campaign setting deal with players that do not want to play a spell caster, or say cleric type of casters?” – Potential Buyer

“Good question. Scarthey might be an Arcane University, but it has druidic roots and has expanded over time to cater to divine and psychic magic users too. Non-casters are less likely to study at the University – unless they’re studying arcane subjects – but can be found within the Rectors, an organisation of adventurers associated with Scarthey. To answer your question more specifically, the book suggests 3 campaign modes: Students Only, Rectors Only, and Mixed.” – Creator and Publisher Rodney Sloan
