Overview

The Thaumaturge, or Thaum, is one of six Character Classes in Legends of Kesmai. Thaums are warrior-priests who start with Lawful Alignment and, in addition to being competent in physical combat, are Magic Users as well. They can call upon the might of the ghods to act on their behalf, through the use of spells which can be as powerful as those of any wizard. Some spells call forth phantasms and demons to fight along with the Thaumaturge, while other spells can bring down lightning, blind or poison foes, heal wounds and even raise the dead. Thaums are also capable of developing many powerful protection spells, which lessen or totally deflect spells cast by evil or chaotic opponents. A Thaumaturge of Priest level or higher commands great respect from other adventurers, due to the ability to raise the dead and cure the most grievous wounds.

Thaums are easier to train with standard weapons and are somewhat more durable than wizards. Like wizards, they have powerful spells and higher level thaums can even summon phantasms of various sorts to assist them. Thaumaturges have access to all weapon types and can wear whatever armor they choose.

The main disadvantage that thaums experience is that their spells are more restricted than wizards'. Whereas a wizard has a number of area type spells such as fireballs and ice storms, a thaum's spells are more tailored for one-on-one combat, which can be awkward at times since most creatures like to travel in groups.
