Wizards of High Sorcery - Apprentices


Usually sponsored by a Mage or archmage, the novice is accepted into a school of magic or into the tutelage of an established Wizard. The location of these schools or masters may be secret, rumored or known, depending on the circumstances. Although the school supplies some elements, the pupil may be expected to pay for either food, drink, or items necessary to practice spells.

Some schools are prepared to keep the students comfortable for long periods of time. For example, the student may consider living at the school during winter to prevent long and unnecessary travel.

Apprentices learn how to pronounce Magius, the language of magic, to write runes in scrolls and to distinguish and collect herbs, among other things.

Famous quotes containing the word apprentices:

    As they move into sharing parenting, men often are apprentices to women because they are not yet as skilled in child care. Mothers have to be willing to teach fathers—both by stepping in and showing and by stepping back and letting them learn.
    —Nancy Press Hawley. Ourselves and Our Children, by Boston Women’s Health Book Collective, ch. 6 (1978)

    We are all apprentices in a craft where no one ever becomes a master.
    Ernest Hemingway (1899–1961)
