Adepts are those humans¸ orks¸ etc. with the ability to channel magical energies into abilities (known as Talents) as well as spells. Each Adept follows a specific Discipline such as Warrior¸ Swordmaster¸ Elementalist¸ etc. that defines the nature of their powers.
The Adepts Way gives the reader valuable insight into how members of different Disciplines view the troubled world around them¸ and why they follow the path they do. It also provides players and Gamemasters with additional game rules and tools to further define their characters.
One word of warning¸ however. The views of these Adepts are only ONE of many practitioners of their Disciplines... Certainly there are many other ways of seeing things...
