Unlike other expert hirelings, sages are experts in a single field of academic
study. They are most useful to player characters in answering specific
questions, solving riddles, or deciphering ancient lore. They are normally hired on a
one-shot basis, to answer a single question or provide guidance for a specific
problem. A sage's knowledge can be in any area that fits within the limits of
the campaign. Typical sage areas are listed on Table 61 .
