Happy is the tomb where no wizard hath lain, and happy the town at night whose wizards are all ashes.

Magic-Users are dangerous students of potent spells who can bind others to their will, reduce their enemies to ash and defy even death itself. However, early in their careers they are vulnerable to all things that imperil lesser men, and few survive to master their craft.

In the Black Peaks, the magical arts were imported from Glantri. The spells that survived the cataclysm that sundered that ancient kingdom number in the dozens, though most Magic-Users know only a handful of the most effective, and are loath to share them with their rivals. Player characters are assumed to have apprenticed for a time before striking out on their own, and therefore start the game with three spells: one offensive, one defensive and one whose purpose is strictly utilitarian.
