Neverwinter Nights: Sorcerer (823 words)
Sorcerers seem to show up regularly as the central hero in fantasy novels; a young inexperienced servant/ stable hand/ sheepherder is really the last in a long line of magic users and has yet to tap their awesome magic potential.
Sorcerer's have access to simple weapons but no armor, and have very low hit points (a measly d4!), so fighting may not be an option unless you carefully plan what abilities to focus on (Dex for armor bonus, Con for added hit points?).
In addition, a Sorcerer should be able to recognize many spells, through the skill Spellcraft, so that when the time comes to learn new spells he or she has seen many spells in action and can make a more informed choice of choosing new spells to inherit.
