Scholar magicians who learn spells from books and enchanted objects and spend all their time at study of obscure languages and lore. They are the worst  of all fighters. Wizards learn esoteric lore to help them plunder knowledge and trades crafts to make magic items. They study dead languages and seek lost spell books and magic items. Learn spells from studying teachers and books.
May search for old books, ancient carvings in dead languages and even cave pictograms. Professional schools act like sects and brotherhoods, aiding members with labs, aid, skills and spells.
