Default Pyramid #3/109: Thaumatology V

Fans of the Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game are already aware of Pyramid magazine thanks to the three issues dedicated to it: #3/104, #3/106, and #3/108. This is a heads up to let you know that Pyramid #3/109: Thaumatology V contains a new professional template for the DFRPG. For the full scoop, check out PK's post here!

So if a mage hunter with higher purpose see's another PC using magic for selfish reasons... Is it going to end bad?

Well, Sense of Duty (Adventuring Companions) might intervene, as it has special dispensation to override everything. But yeah, if a zealot mage-hunter without loyalty to the adventuring party decides that a spellcaster in the group has been unrepentantly self-serving, things could end badly. It's a variation on the theme of the delver with Honesty vs. the thief who wants to pickpocket and shoplift in town.

This template/class looks interesting to me. And the Glorious Book of Valadir as well.

Has anyone made and/or played a Mage-Hunter yet?

I created one and added it to my pool of Pregens for my ongoing DFRPG game, but was curious to see if any had hit the map yet.

I was noodling around with a sample one. I'll finish it up and post it.

Only thing missing were Mage-Hunter Lenses for other classes like Knight, Swashbuckler or Barbarian.

That would be very nice if anyone has examples of such lenses. I especially see a Knight Mage-Hunter Lens being very useful.

I have a player using it now, we're playing "Against the Rat-men". Thus far his mage hunter specific abilities haven't come into play too much, although he did get to use Dispel Magic against some brain ratmen.

I allowed him to make a Shadow Elf (from GURPS Dungeon Fantasy 3: The Next Level) Mage Hunter, so by necessity his Selective Magic Resistance was modified to Improved Selective Magic Resistance so as to co-exist with his built-in Magery 0. It's expensive (7 points/level), but worth it from his perspective.
