Sometimes called druids (by people who don’t have a clue), witchers, ghostmen, or just wise men/women, shamans learn how to influence the spiritual world. It is not quite clear what sources they draw their powers from really, especially not to them, but their magic is a more primal, more raw understanding of the world beyond our senses. They oftensome of the most important members of their tribes, and their word often is the last, yet sometimes this can lead to conflicts with the real chieftain, who might not be happy to get told off by someone spending half their day in a cave or the woods.
They are limited in their choice of weapons, as they are only able to use their ritual clubs and staffs. They are unable to wear any kind of armour more heavy than thick fur or light leather, but can use shields. Shamans are weak at low levels, and when adventuring they should be well protected.

Shamans memorize their magic with rhymes and songs they get taught by their elders, every day they have to spend some time remembering the songs and rhymes that influence the spirit world and get themselves into the spirit for spiriting.

A shaman may occupy a ritual place, often a cave or other natural formation with specific magic properties, when he reaches level 6. He will then attract apprentices (1d4), who will range from level 1-3.
