With all the power of magic at their command, wizards are an unstoppable force in the world of Neverwinter, with the power to freeze enemies solid or even stop time. Bend the nature of reality to your will with the Control Wizard!
While some species are born with a few spells, Control Wizards learn their magic through careful study. Long-lived races like elves may spend an entire century studying magic before their first adventure. The most powerful wizards, including the mighty Elminster, often have decades of experience and spells to draw on.
The past century saw many wizards in the Forgotten Realms rendered powerless. The Spellplague was an intense magical disruption: Not only did it ravage the world, it also made spellcasting chaotic and unpredictable. With the ascension of a new incarnation of Mystra, the goddess of magic, though, it is a new age for wizards across Faerûn, especially in adventure-rich cities like Neverwinter.
