Wizards of High Sorcery

Article written by Trampas Whiteman & Kranar Drogin


"A warrior has his blade. A wizard has his magic."

The Wizards of High Sorcery stand as the oldest, most feared, and most respected of all the orders of the world of Krynn. These wizards draw upon the focused arcane magic granted by the moons and the gods of magic associated with those moons.

Foundations of Wizardry

When the gods of magic first formed the orders, wizards were taught the Foundations of Wizardry:

  • All wizards are brothers and sisters in their order. All orders are brothers and sisters in the power.
  • The places of High Sorcery are held in common among all orders and no sorcery is to be used there in anger against fellow wizards.
  • The world beyond the walls of the towers may bring brother against sister and order against order, but such is the way of the universe.

Test of High Sorcery

Main article: Test of High Sorcery

Wizards begin their training at an early age, usually under the tutelage of a tutor or within the halls of a wizard academy. Such training weeds out those who are not serious about the Art, and prepares those with the gift for magic for the time that they must take the Test of High Sorcery.

The Conclave of Wizards

Main article: Conclave of Wizards

The Conclave of Wizards is the governing body of the Wizards of High Sorcery. The Conclave consists of seven members of each of the three orders. Each Order selects one of the seven Conclave members to be the Master of that order.

Renegades

Arcane spellcasters who do not follow the tenets of the Wizards of High Sorcery are branded renegades. While renegade wizards draw their power from High Sorcery, their magic is not affected by the moons.
