The art of Augury has been pursued for countless years. Before written language, there were prophets and soothsayers as well as those who divined the future with entrails and bones. The Augurer is the result of the evolution of these individuals with heightened sight, a society of beings with the ability to see beyond the material world into other planes of existence and sometimes into the future. Augurers are driven to creative diversions, enjoying and excelling in art, and theater and music of all types. In battle, the Augurer uses a combination of strong fighting technique and exceptional magical ability. For this reason, an Augurer must always be well rounded, depending on mental and physical prowess to vanquish its foes.
Augurers require great wisdom to dictate their actions because of their uncanny knowledge of the future. Foreknowledge of the future also grants the Augurer unusual luck, using their sight to give them an edge in all things. An Augurer must be adept in the art of meditation, depending on it to alleviate mental exhaustion of prolonged spell casting. The hours spent in the study of meditation and mental focus have resulted in the Augurer becoming less limber and dexterous.
Learning the ways of the Augurer may be attempted by races with preternatural sight in the material world that may be extended to other planes. These races include Humans, Elves, Dwarves, Half-Trolls, Gith, Drow, Sea-Elves, and Gnomes.
