Wizardry is a body of magical knowledge that uses mental discipline and formulae to tap into an underlying method of sensing, controlling, altering, creating and destroying various schools of magic. It is an extremely mentally taxing activity.

Wizardry is typically learned at a collegium of magic such as the Collegium Arcana, taught by professors who have studied the schools and techniques formally over the course of time. Because magical formulae may be expressed in a written form, it is possible for scholarship to exist.

Wizardry is limited primarily by the following factors:


The Haldrian Hypothesis states that wizardry is utilizing a magical construct created by the Ancients. This construct supplies the result based on the formula given to it, but it uses physical and mental energy as the conduit to that construct. The Sandrean Hypothesis states that magic is everywhere and that people who utilize magical formulae are providing their own "construct", their mental activity channels the magical essence and causes it to be expressed in reality - the effort required is merely the effort required to do anything, such as baking bread or composing a song. Sandrean wizards do not agree with the Haldrian hypothesis because they do not like the idea that they are just playing around with some toys left to them by the Ancient ones, and Haldrian wizards do not agree with Sandrean thought because they are not fond of the idea there is no overarching organization or meaning in the entire system of magic.

Sandrean or Haldrian, wizardry works the same, and they may both be right.
