Wizards already haul around a bulky book (or books!) full of spells. Time to make proper use of it.
In movies, television shows, literature, and art, there are lots of examples of wizards, magicians, and witches directly referencing books of magic while casting.
This simple class feature addition just gives that ability to D&D wizards without adding real power. It takes time, restricts movement during that time, and requires components that some casters may not carry around with them (because an arcane focus is simple and doesn't change). Unlike ritual casting, this still requires the use of spell slots for 1st-level and higher spells.
I think it's perfect for those spell-collector wizards out there, and it is a great reason to record niche-use spells and to develop new cantrips.
Prepared Adventurers are often new to D&D life and are out exploring the world at large (and their character options). This is a great level to be at, as you have your whole life as a player and DM ahead of you. Prepared Adventurers get:
Early Access: Get access to the newest content 1 month before anyone else.
Satisfaction: Feel good about supporting the creation of new content for a game you enjoy.
The Homebrew: Get access to all of my released homebrew content.
Content Suggestions: Make suggestions for new content, such as the name of a magic dagger or the theme of a subclass.
Voting: Vote in any polls that may be run here.
Seasoned Adventurers are experienced Players and Dungeon Masters that enjoy having a variety of options to choose from. They like it when things are made specifically for them. Seasoned Adventurers get:
Everything that Prepared Adventurers get.
Custom Item: At your request 1/month, have a custom normal or magical item description created.
Feedback on Your Homebrew: At your request 1/month, send me a homebrew item, spell, monster, or NPC you are making, and I'll respond with my thoughts/suggestions.
Legendary Adventurers are people that know what they like and want more of it. They know the difference between "rogue" and "rouge", and they have battled their way to the foot of the angry momma dragon (and want to have the custom tools for the job). Legendary Adventurers get:
Everything that Prepared, and Seasoned Adventurers get.
Custom Spell, Monster, or NPC: At your request 1/month, have a custom spell created, or a monster or NPC described and given game stats.
Live Chat with The Amethyst Dragon: At your request 1/month, schedule a 30 minute chat/homebrewing/worldbuilding session on Discord.
