I have no idea what the f+@* Vancian means, and if anyone links to Wikipedia rather than explain it I will burn this thread to the ground:-D
Refers to the works of Jack Vance, where magic worked similarly to how it does in D&D/Pathfinder. Except wizards tended to know VERY few spells. If you knew three spells, you were an archmage of unparalleled power.
As such, I suggest Pathfinder 2.0 truely make the it's spellcasters Vancian. They can begin at 1st level knowing one cantrip. At 5th level they can learn one 1st level spell. At 10th level, one 2nd level spell. At 15th level, one 3rd level spell. And at 20th level, those paragons of magical might can even learn to cast a single one of the highly vaunted 4th level spells!
