I'm very new to the spellcaster archetype in D&D. I've been playing rogues exclusively in 3e and 5e in every one of my campaigns, so yeah.
I'm playing a level 3 bard with 17 charisma. I only know level 0 and 1 spells.
In terms of bonus spells, with the feat empower spell, can I cast an empowered level 0 using a level 2 slot, since my character has a bonus level 2 spell slot and empower increases the spell level by 2?
