I did not believe him to be as powerful as the sorcerer at any point. The concept started out as a sorcerer who only had spells to make his life easier, until I realized that even low level sorcerer spells were of little use in everyday life, and that even being unoptimal as a sorcerer would leave me with spells that were way out of character. Plus, the character would lack even the direction of a self taught sorcerer. He's just someone who can make fire out of nothing, or move things with his mind, as far as he knows. So I made a new system that allows him to do that at will, and that turned into a class.
I added the rule for sorcerer substitution in case one of these people trains as a more literal sorcerer, but they are meant to be farmers who maybe want to avenge their wife or something, not reality-bending masters of magic.
EDIT: Cantrips are up.
