Coorgri are an imposing force of might and magic. Those battle-casters come from multiple paths of power. All of these paths have a background of defensive arts as well as other skills. Just as they have multiple magical path they walk down, the coorgri also have many paths for developing their skills. The Council of Mages in Nazdell, the Order of the Blade, and the Order of St. Valyera are the most renowned places to train in the world. It is also common to find coorgri training in the world's militaries. Most coorgri discover their ability with magic during combat training or athletic activities. When a coorgri is branded as a novice their training path varies based on where they trainand the type of magical path they follow.
Novices of the Council of Mages and the Order of the Blade tend to train in similar fashions. They are gathered into small classses and instructed by a single coorgri. Each class is instructed based on one of the magical paths. Students split their time between class and field studies so they can apply what they have learned. When a student moves up to the rank of gifted they recieve most or all of their training in the field. They are often sent on missions with their respective counterparts from their organizations. The gifted continue on this path until they are considered masters and adopt their path title. From that point the coorgri of the Council of Mages and Order of trhe Blade hire out their services to those who fit their personal code.
The novices of the Order of St. Valyera are almost exclusively paladins. While they do accept some other types of coorgri they have never accepted a berserker or lich lord into the fold. Novices train on a one on one master and apprentice basis. This continues until they are considered a master themselves. Training in this method allows them to be instilled with the values of St. Valyera. As the Order of St. Valyera are best known for being places of protection and healing, the training masters are tasked with making sure their charges uphold there ideals. Like other coorgri when they become masters themselves they adopt their path as their title. Those coorgri that make it to this point take on an apprentice of their own to continue the cycle.
The novices who train amongst military services tend to train in a combination of the other's methods. Training in boot camps with others of various specialties they learn to use their abilities as part of a unit. They recieve basic knowledge of their abilities in a class with the other coorgri that are currently trains as well as one on one training with a master from their path. When they graduate to the rank of gifted they aree placed in their own unit and given assignments while they continue to improve their skills. Those that become masters and adopt their path title usually end up in elite tactical units or are given command in their branch of service.
The coorgri are medium armor, battle-casters that wield rune weapons. Their spells paths alter their gameplay, while their backgrounds lend to additional narrative hooks. Their rune forging makes coorgri a versitile class that can fill many party roles. Their runes are enhanced by their rage, granting bonus effects to their rune spells. Rune stacking can create limits to their abilities and without heavy armor they may require more healing when they are defending allies.
