Learning Spells: When gaining the first level in Wizard, the Wizard adds 3+Int {C1} Wizard spells to their spellbook; at each additional level, they add 2 Wizard spells of any circle for which they have a slot. The Wizard may add a Wizard spell of any circle for which they have a slot to their spellbook from another spellbook or Wizard scroll, by spending {C} hours & succeeding Dweomer (DC 10 + 2x {C}); they may retry this process until successful, but may not take 10.

Spell Preparation: After resting for 8 hours, the Wizard may refresh their spell slots. The Wizard may, at any time, spend 1 hour studying their spellbook(s), &/or scrolls they have written, to prepare any number of their available spell slots, replacing each with a specific spell of up to that slot's circle from those written works. The Wizard may utilize another person's written works, making an Arcana check for each spell prepared this way (DC 10 + 2x {C}); the Wizard may not take 10 on this check. The Wizard may also use spells they currently have prepared as their own written work by succeeding Dweomer (DC 5 + the highest {C} prepared this way).

Casting Spells: To cast a Wizard spell they have prepared, the Wizard must expend the spell's slot, also expending the action noted in the spell's Cast Time & providing its listed components. When casting a Wizard spell with a somatic component, the Wizard must check Arcane Spell Failure for their equipped items.

Metamagic: The Wizard may add the circle adjustment from a metamagic feat they know to a spell's circle to determine the slot needed to prepare the spell, & apply the metamagic feat's effects to the prepared spell.
