The Sage is a role specific to Slash'EM Extended. They're quite similar to the wizard role, capable of learning a wide variety of spells and advancing most spellcasting skills to a high level.

Sages have the special ability to be very likely (even more so than wizards) to write unknown scrolls and spellbooks with a magic marker.

The Sage quest sees you fighting Rodney's Twin for the Shillelagh.

Sages always begin the game with a tame kitten.
