The Electric Mage is a role specific to SlashTHEM. They are a spellcaster class, and can be clockwork automata, doppelgänger, drow, elves, gnomes, human, illithid, incantifiers or nymphs of any alignment.

An Electric Mage starts the game with equipment and abilities related to lightning magic, including shock resistance. Their starting pet is a shock hound pup.

The Electric Mage quest sees you fighting the ghost of Elvis Presley for the Thunder Whistle.

The Electric Mage is a battlemage similar to the flame/ice mage, with the main difference being that they specialize in lightning magic. Their starting pet is also shock resistant, making it much safer to use lightning spells/wands. Upon leveling up enough, the shock hound pup will grow into an adult shock hound which is very strong and capable of taking down lots of enemies.

The Electric Mage quest mainly spawns shoggoths and other blobs, and the player may suffer from acid damage quite often. Their quest nemesis, the ghost of Elvis Presley, isn't too hard to take out.


The Electric Mage is a lightning-based pendant to SLASH'EM's Flame Mage and Ice Mage.
