    We just thought it would be fun. Good catch, though!

    It does confirm that there are plenty of wizards running around that can sling a 9th level spell or two. Low-magic setting my foot.

    Similarly, in Dragons of the Hourglass Mage, towards the end, it notes that wizards were fleeing from Raistlin on "... the wings of wish spells." or something similar. So not only were their multiple black robes with 9th level slots, they were completely terrified of Raistlin despite their 9th level slots. And this was before he had time to gain in knowledge and power in Palanthas.

    We were writing novels, not game manuals.

    There have been some mentions in D&D lore (and I forget where) that some mages' spells have found their way to other worlds.

    Thanks very much for the reply, and for the book, Ms Weis! Let me take the opportunity to say that I deeply appreciated the test being presented concisely, and the narrative structure building up towards it. Itís a great novel, beyond its Dragonlance nature, which of course I love!

    Thank you! That book was a joy to write!

  8. Default What about the Wizards Three?

    I'm not sure if it counts, but I do recall that in the world-hopping ongoing series "The Wizards Three" which appeared in DRAGON Magazine in the 1990s, Elminster of the Forgotten Realms had supper at Ed Greenwood's abode with Mordenkainen of Greyhawk and (for a time) Dalamar....

    Also, let me say that it is an honour to be on the same forum as one of the co-authors of the DragonLance saga! In about a month I shall be live-streaming a hardcore 1e DL series campaign in part for the purpose of comparing it to The Lord of the Rings and apologize in advance for any criticisms I might level at the setting!
