Red Wizard is a special prestige class in Thay whose members belong to the Red Wizards of Thay. Would-be Red wizards tend to focus on one school of magic. Very few sorcerers and bards decide to become Red wizards; those that do are considered misfits.[1]


Specialist Defense
Red wizards gain a bonus to defense from their chosen school of specialization.[1]
Spell Power
Spells cast that share the same school as a Red wizards specialty become more powerful with this ability.[1]
Scribe Tattoo
Experienced Red wizards are able to scribe the magical Thayan tattoos upon novice spellcasters.[1]


The Red Wizards created the spell Acid Rain.[2][3]
