"Those who Study/Pray": The words "Those who Study" and "Those who Pray" refers to the few who walk the path of magic and miracles. Whether it be through natural talent, great devotion, or intense learning, all paths of manipulating mana tend to take many years to master, but for those willing to make the journey, great knowledge and power lies ahead.
Mages: Mages are those who follow the path of studying mana and it many forms, whether it be manipulating the elements of Fire, Earth, and Water, or delving into the mysteries of the mind and nature. However this study comes at a cost, for it takes away the time needed to master arms and shield. So many mages are limited to the use of knives, short swords, and the staves they use to channel the mana around them. They also limit themselves to light armor, if any, in order to allow for the settle movements necessary to wield mana.
Clerics: For those who dedicate their time worshipping the Devine and/or the Fallen and spreading their respective influences, the Cleric gains the benefits of wielding mana both miraculous and deplorable. Though most Clerics dedicate themselves and the use of there mana to the healing and supporting arts, there are some who would seek Devine retribution through the art of cursing and the use of the elements. Many clerics will have little training in the martial arts, though some may have a dedicated weapon to their deity, most clerics will be limited to that of a knife, short sword, or staff. Armor will also depend on the deity, but many clerics will have nothing more than light or leather armor.

In Feudal Europe, the First Estate was defined as Those Who Pray, but in the late Middle Ages and Early Renaissance, new classes arose that fell between the estates, in the form of a mercantile class, and secular intellectuals or clerks. These classes are more of a reflection of the later institutions of this estate.
Student - This is the basic class for pursuing the intellectual arts. Similar to an apprenticeship, students begin learning the basics of literacy and philosophy, or divinity, secret rituals, or even mathematics and natural science. In preliterate societies this may include learning secret or divine languages or songs.
Initiate - Those who pursue the mysteries and mastery of magick begin as initiates. Initiates often serve beneath masters, or sometimes larger covens of mage colleges. The purpose of the initiate is to learn the basics of channeling and wielding magick, providing services for their teachers in exchange for revelation into the mysteries and vagaries of the arcane.
Acolyte - Those who are called to serve the Divinities and the mysteries of the spiritual realm begin their journeys as Acolytes. As novices, Acolytes learn the foundation of religious ritual and doctrine, serving and assisting others in the traditions.
Scribe - Scribes are those within the intellectual class that pursue avenues of learning that do not deal with the esoteries of magickal or religious pursuit. Though most often dealing with the study and transcribing of books, Scribes may also be clerks who gather and organize information on mathematics, geometry, astronomy, medicine, or natural philosophy.
Adept - Those who become skilled in the wielding and shaping of mana into applicable spells and charms using the art of sorcery are known as Adepts. Magick can be a confusing pursuit, being both an art and a science, and can cover many schools of thought and hidden knowledge. Some pursue mastery of the elements, and others sound and shadow. Sometimes referred to as Magi, Wizards, Witches, or Sorcerors, all are considered Adepts.
Mystic - Where some who study turn their focus outward into the mysteries of the world, some turn their focus inward to the mysteries of the mind. Those who master the paths of meditation, deep contemplation, and mentalism are known as Mystics. Mystics pursue the powers within the conscious and subconscious mind, drawing mana from their surroundings and using their own forms as a lense to project their thoughts and their will.
Priest - Those who devote themselves to serving the worshippers and the will of the gods become Priests. Priests use their faith to draw and shape the mana within themselves to produce acts of divine magick and thaumaturgy. Some individuals of the priesthood serve individual divinites or orders, while others serve as the clergy for entire pantheons, tending to groups of worshippers and religious observances.
Druid - An ancient order which holds many mysteries, the Druids see the world itself as a divine and living being. Often assumed to be "tree or nature worshippers" the Druids believe that life is the source of Mana, and that all life should be in balance. That which is taken must eventually be given back. Druids often form circles or covens which practice the Old Ways. though individuals may wander the world alone, seeking to minister to the living body of Myrium that all share.
Shaman - Certain cultures believe that there is a spirit world that resides next to the material world, and that all things have a spirit. Shamans interact between the mortal and spirit worlds, often trying to keep both mortal and spiritual forces in balance. Some shamans may even make bargains with ancestor or nature spirits to perform services in exchange for favors or power. Some may consider shamanic tradition hedge witchery, but in some cultures Shaman are extremely important and wield considerable influence.
Scholar - Not all who learn pursue the paths of magick or prayer. Some become experts on subjects such as astronomy, or architecture, geometry, or herbalism and medicine, or even subjects such as history, geography, or literature. For those with little or no interest or talent in casting spells, but still with great intellectual talent, there is the class of Scholar.
Archmage - Masters of their arcane craft, Archmagi can call upon deep wells of mana and wield the most elaborate and dangerous spells. Often, an Archmage has mastered the esoteries of incantation, being able to cast spells in a fraction of the time needed by lesser adepts. An Archmage is an individual to be reckoned with and respected.
High Priest - At the pinnacle of many divine orders stands the High Priest or Priestess, who stands as an exemplar of devotion and spiritual power. High Priests often command great authority, speaking virtually as the tongue for the deities whom they serve. Some are ostentatious in their divine might, while others are humble, yet brimming with serene power.
Archdruid - Archdruids are privy to the oldest secrets held by the druidic orders, often capable of communing with the world of Myrium itself. They are in tune with the life of the land, and the creatures that live within it, upon it, and above it. To make an enemy of an Archdruid is akin to making an enemy of the very forces of Nature itself.
Monk - As students of contemplation turn their focus evermore inward, they begin to eschew the needs of the material world and embrace the life of the ascetic. Monks often live simple and austere lives, sometimes taking vows of silence or poverty, and avoid the indulgences of the pleasures of the world. The results of this discipline are often a finely honed willpower and mastery of mental disciplines and the flow of mana through one's own body.
Witch Doctor - Those who have mastered the skills and mysteries of shamanism are known as Witch Doctors. Witch Doctors walk between the spiritual and living worlds, seeing through the shroud of life and death, and bargain with the spirits from this world and others. Witch Doctors are often very powerful in many tribal cultures, wielding authority that rivals warlords or chieftains.
Philosopher - Scholars who have reached the zenith of their fields are Philosophers, often not merely experts in a particular intellectual pursuit but also innovators. Philosophers can influence entire ways of thinking or debate, and press others to make changes through entire cultures. Likewise, Philosophers may be masters of many intellectual pursuits, and dabblers in even more, making them sought after for their knowledge and council.
Necromancer - Some Adepts or Priests during their studies discover the existence of the Underverse, and the strange necrotic energies the emanate from it. Wielding power antithetical to life, these individuals become Necromancers. Capable of reanimating the corpses of the dead, and commanding troops of the Unliving, Necromancers are feared and despised whenever they are discovered by the living.
Diabolist - The gods are not the only beings wielding spiritual power. Though they have been cut off from Myrium by the Dragon Seals, the demonic forces of the Exiled still seek to claw their way back into the world. To this end, the Demon Lords have found ways to influence and corrupt mortal souls, slowly growing in strength. Those who make demonic pacts for influence and power are known as Diabolists.
********************************************************************** Again, just throwing some ideas out there. And again, I tried to provide some classes for those who might not want to be active combatants, or throw spell orbs around.

Xeero Sulcarak: I am thinking about upgrading my shop stall for the White Wolf Emporium to help kick of the 2019 outdoor season. It's a fairly large purchase, but a good deal for the price. It will take me from a 8x8 canopy to a 10x20 enclosed tent. YAY, or NEIGH?
