The Laws of Magic
This page is a repository for information that does not seem to fit appropriately in another category.
Magician – A person licensed to cast a few spells (usually 1-6). Magicians are relatively common and even a village will likely have a few Magicians. Note that most of these spells will likely be Power 1.
Archmage – A person licensed to cast a large number of spells (7-12), generally related, likely including a few Power 2 Spells and possible a Power 3 Spell. Often oversees a group of Magicians in casting spells, e.g. a team for handling pest control and irrigation for several large farms or as a quarry master using spells to enhance safety and/or aid in extraction in a mining operation. Archmages are uncommon, although a prosperous town likely has 1-3.
Wizard – A person licensed to create new spells and cast many spells, usually restricted by element. Wizards are relatively rare, and usually found only in cities.
Archwizard – A person licensed to create new spells and cast spells related to any element. Archwizards are extremely rare, with just over a hundred in the entire Empire.
Sorcerer – A person casting a spell that they are no licensed to cast. Note that this is generally frowned upon, but not illegal. Also note that a Sorceror can also be a Magician, Archmage, or Wizard casting a spell that is outside of their limited license.
