Hey everyone! Did you had fun with the Character Creation PDF? If you haven't checked it out yet, you can do so here.
You also probably don't need to read anything below this line if you haven't looked into it until this point:
We're one week in since the release and If you did check out the Character Creation PDF, then awesome! You will want to glance through the additions and changes below. Most of them aren't too big, but it's worth noting, for when you dive back in.
Also, I'd like to make it clear that the Character Creation PDF is in Beta and will go through a series of revisions to layout, grammar revisions, and few mechanical changes here and there. I suspect the changes will drastically subside over the next couple of months, as this spotlight has proven very beneficial to the product and strengthening it.

< Change Cripple, Magic Missile, Spectral Fire, Demon Bolt, and Astral Lightning to not drain as much Astral
