Wish was drafted after Chris and Mike went through and assigned all of the powers to schools, so I think it hasn't been assigned one yet.
Thanks. I was curious because in the original material its listed as "Universal" and I was wondering if the plan was to stick to that. So, no school gets any kind of bonuses to cast it.

Out of curiosity, when the specialist wizard says it gets “one free reroll” when casting spells from their school, is that every time they cast? Once a day? Seems rather non-specific.

Free rerolls are a part of the core rules in the current edition of Savage Worlds. You can take the free reroll whenever you make a roll for the Trait/Skill the ability applies to, even if you succeed (so you can try to get a Raise instead of a normal success.) You take the better of the two rolls, so you don't risk turning a success into a failure.

The only exception is a Critical Failure (rolling snake eyes on your Trait/Skill die and your Wild Die.) In that case, you take the Critical Failure as your result. So there is a risk involved whenever you use this ability, though the odds are in your favor the higher the Trait die is.

If it doesn't have a school in core Pathfinder then we'll almost certainly stick with that.

Will Heal, Cure, etc. finally be added back to the Necromancy school they belong to?
We're sticking to what Paizo did in the core Pathfinder rules. Last I checked, cure light wounds is a conjuration spell so our healing will almost certainly fall under that.

Sir Brennen's got it right.

They are not "part of the core rules" as in available always, there are edges that grant them for specific situations / specific Traits/Skills.

Why aren't these previews being posted on the KS updates page? Instead, we have to chase them in Enworld posts, Twitch streams, etc.

Every preview has been in the updates so I'm not sure what the issue is? Update #2 has the link to the Wizard preview, Update #6 has the link to the Paladin preview and a link to the stream where Shane (impromptu) shared the Barbarian as well.

Mainly the fact that I don't want to wade through a 60 minute video to look for 2 previews (is the Bard preview in that video as well?). Besides, the link to the stream doesn't even mention that the preview(s) are there.

Yeah, I've seen them in that thread. My point was that I should not have to follow multiple forum threads to see previews for an ongoing KS campaign. I'm sure many people would find it helpful to see them on the KS page - isn't that where most people interested in the KS would go to find them?
These have all been in the Kickstarter updates.

They did not publish or officially preview the Barbarian or Bard in "print" form (i.e., on a static page or email), they were just flashed on the screen during the Know Direction interview. Some enterprising ENWorlders kindly got some screen caps for you and everyone else to enjoy. But the interview was also in an update, and PEG isn't under any obligation to include a detailed summary of everything in the hour long video, especially when there have been multiple videos.

Really not seeing the problem here.
