Vivian Flameborn

Vivian Flameborn lives for adventure. When she heard tales of an ancient city thawing and treasure-hunting wizards dueling in its streets, she gathered her friends, hired a few mercenaries, and journeyed northward to seek fortune and glory.

Spells

Vivian specializes in fire magic. In combat, she prefers a direct approach of unleashing heat rays, fireballs, and raging infernos to incinerate her enemies. When a target isn’t immediately available, she’ll use Explosive Rune to leave a trap to burn them later. If she needs to tie up an opponent, she can conjure an imp as a distraction. She also has a few spells to aid her allies, but she prefers to have her apprentice cast Fleet Feet and Enchant Weapon so that she is free to fight her enemies head on.

  • Combat Awareness – Soothsayer 16
  • Destructive Sphere – Elementalist 12
  • Elemental Ball – Elementalist 12
  • Elemental Bolt – Elementalist 12
  • Enchant Weapon – Enchanter 10
  • Explosive Rune – Sigilist 14
  • Fleet Feet – Chronomancer 12
  • Imp – Summoner 12

Apprentice

Abigail has adventured at Vivian’s side for years. Where Vivian prefers to dive headfirst into the action, Abigail takes a more cautious approach. In battle, she prefers to make use of support magic, but can still throw destructive blasts of fire across the battlefield when threatened.

Soldiers

Vivian’s core followers are a set of close allies who each fill a different role in her warband. A treasure hunter leads her warriors into battle, an archer provides covering fire, a trap expert seeks out treasure, and an apothecary stays close to Vivian to help heal her inevitable injuries. She has then hired a mix of thieves and thugs to fill out her band of followers.

  • Apothecary
  • Archer
  • Thief × 2
  • Thug × 2
  • Trap Expert (Into the Breeding Pits)
  • Treasure Hunter

Transcendence

When Vivian casts Transcendence, she takes her band of friends to a new plane of existence offering fresh adventures, new luxuries, and more things to burn.

Wednesday Wizards is a series of posts that I’m planning to write for the next few months. Each entry will present a wizard for Frostgrave Second Edition with background, spell selection, soldiers, and their goal in exploring the city. These wizards and warbands could be used as-is to start a new campaign or serve as inspiration as you build your own wizard.
