d100 Encounters in Wizard School

Exile Island has three main known wizard schools:

Shadel Port University magic school is the premier magic school in the world (but the Imperial School or Wizardry is awesome but many types of wizardry not taught there). It is most open and accepted. Encounters for here. First 20 results recycled here.

Second is the Devil hill school for renegades and rejects from Shadel port. On average student of poorer quality. Only one in six female, the school is notoriously sexist. Not actually evil the school is tolerated as long as it stays on it's part of the Island and makes no plots against the Shedelport University or its agents.

Third is the so called necromancer school that accepts only evil students, has links to the ancient Necromancer empire and students are taught by devils and demons and undead. Students are tempted with power and scholarships and supposedly pay for tuition with their souls. The Barron tolerates them and the Empire hates them, offering gold for dead necromancers.

About half of apprentices have only utilitarian spells to assist their master like living tools who serve the masters wishes. Roll a dice on odd the wizard knows mostly non fighting spells. The others are specializing in advanced adventurer diplomas and practice spell casting in the school gym.

Enrolled students have 1d4 cantrips and are zero level and pay about 100 per year tuition and board
Apprentice students are 1d4 level and pay about 1000 per year per level
Masters are at least 6th level or 5th+1d3
School heads are name rank 10th level or 7+1d4
School chief librarians are 14th level or 11+1d6
School heads and founders usually 20th level and a minimum of 18th 17+1d3

A master often establishes his own home with library and laboratory and can start to tutor students.
A name rank wizard has own tower can teach formaly to multiple students

Most wizard schools preach celibacy unless married or for while in study
