Those that don’t have to study or pray for spells are called the “gifted” and are considered noble.
Those that do study or pray are called the “Imbued” and are considered minor nobles like knights.
Those that have skill (fighters, barbarians, etc.) are called “The Skilled” or “Skilled” and are equal to merchants
There are high elves which were once fae (immortals) that had their wings removed by force or voluntary and common elves which were born from other elves. Both have the same qualities but high elves are almost always gifted. Common elves are very rarely gifted. Those that are, are treated with suspicion.
Levels in a class are described as follows:
Gifted “Seer/Sorcerer/Warlock…etc. of the 9th(1st level character) outer circle” The numerical title decreases with each level. I.E 2nd level warclock would be called a warlock of the 8th outer circle A 10th level gifted is called master of the outer circle. Then the next levels are called Inner circle up to 20th level which is called “Exalted of the Inner Circle”.
Imbued use the same structure. Except they are called """"" of the 9th Outer Flame of Power. Then Master of the Flame of Power. Then Inner Flame of Power and Exalted of the Flame of Power.
Skilled. Feats, abilties, skill points, etc. rank the skilled amongst each other. Knowledge Geography, History, or local DC 15 would allow someone to recognize a feat, ability, or skill. Increase the DC by 1 point for every level pre-requisite required for a feat or skill. I.E. If you saw a fighter fighting a griffon that had the weapon specialization feat you would need a DC 19 check to realize he had this feat. That would also indicate to you he is at least 4th level or if you saw a rogue use evasion, the DC would be 16.
The feats or abilities give them the title “8th talent of Blade/Fist/Silent Death….etc.”. Depending on how the character wants their reputation to spread, they pick their title. A 5th level rogue may call himself a 6th talent of martial prowess. But he better be able to prove it if a lord asks him to. A Lords knowledge check would help him discern if the person was not telling the truth. A bluff check can be used to “fake” a feat. It is an oppossed check versus the knowledge check. A 10th level character is called a Master of ……….
11th level and above are called Lords of …… using the same numerical titles as all others. When a skilled reaches 20th level he is Supreme Lord of …….. or choses his own title. 200 years ago there was WeaponMaster Jale. I.E a 18th level Barbarian would be called Leilore, 2nd Lord of Wrath and Steel.
It is common knowledge that when in the precence of others of nobility, its very rude not to use a title.
Using a God’s name seems to bring about the power of one of his portfolios and it’s attention.

Scenario 3: The character gains the ability to “cast” once per day, at will, as a free action one third level wizard or cleric spell. The spell must be defined at the time the option is purchased and cannot be changed later. The caster level for this effect will be calculated as the character’s level.
