Casters are [[unit]]s that can use [[scroll]]s and cast [[spell]]s. While certain [[unit]]s can use [[spell]]s or spell-like abilities (i.e. [[Archons]]), Casters are the only units in [[Erfworld]] that can learn and cast [[spell]]s beyond their unit's specific ability or spell set. Casters are further defined as being [[Commander]]s and being able to form [[caster link]]s. Casters are called by their class or discipline, so a caster who casts from [[Lookamancy]] is called an Lookamancer, and a caster who does general [[Hippiemancy]] would be called a Hippiemancer.

Every caster belongs to a [[magic|magical]] discipline (e.g. [[thinkamancy]] or [[croakamancy]]) and can cast spells from that discipline. Some casters can only cast spells belonging to their discipline, while other casters can cast spells from multiple disciplines.{{erf|1|013}} Multi-discipline casters are uncommon and there may be limits on what spells they can cast and how successful those spells are.

Casting spells uses a caster's [[juice]]{{erf|1|104}} so there is a limit on the amount of magic a caster can perform during one turn {{erf|1|090}}. Casters can extend this limit by creating and using [[scroll]]s. Scrolls increase the versitility of casters by allowing them to cast spells they don't know or spells that are part of a discipline they can't otherwise cast from.{{erf|1|126}}.

Casters are created in the same way as warlords; when popping a warlord, there is a chance of getting a caster instead.  This inherently means that [[Ruler|Rulers]] can't control the number or type of Casters who pop in their cities. However, some Erfworlders believe that the [[Titans]] grant [[sides]] the Casters they truly need.

Like [[Warlord]]s, Casters are [[commander]]s and can lead [[units]] in combat. {{erf|1|084a|Parson's Klog #10}} However, they almost never do so since they are too rare and valuable to risk. Moreover, they do not have the [[Leadership]] ability and do not grant a [[Leadership]] [[Combat#Combat_Bonuses|bonus]] to units under their direct command. Some casters can grant a special bonus to particular units, presumably limited to those directly tied to their magical specialty. For example, Dirtamancers provide bonuses to [[golems]] under their command, and Croakamancers provide bonuses to [[uncroaked]] units.{{erf|1|084a|Parson's Klog #10}}

A Thinkamancer can join one or two other casters together into a [[caster link]] allowing those casters to cast powerful spells,  multi-disciple spells, or create multi-disciple [[Magic_Item|magical items]] or scrolls. The most powerful spells and items (apart from those created and used by [[Titans]]) are created by linked casters.
