Towers Of High Wizardry
For reasons apparent to some and not to others, Towers of High Wizardry as an idea have become important.
Some questions for your pondering:
- Across civilised continental Europe, how many ToHW would you expect to exist?
- Should they specialise in part or whole to a School of Magic? For example, the ToHW at Rheims is recognised as the place for Conjuration, even though they are strong on Evocation and Divination too.
- Should they specialise in a wizardly "portfolio" (similar in idea to cleric domains - war being a prominent one)?
- Should they specialise in a particular magical Prestige Class? That is, there is one Tower per PrC, and that's the only place (in Europe) to learn how to be that PrC.
- Should membership and/or entry be restricted? By level? By race ("I told you before! We're not letting the kender in!")? By socio-political circumstances ("You can't see the High Mage until you've paid your union fees! He will only accept appointments from fully-paid members!")?
- Should usefulness to classes be restricted? Wizards win everywhere, but Warmages and Duskblades are only welcome at some.
The ball is rolling!
