Now, it's time to put it all together. I've written about eight types of Wizard, and not without good reason. Now it's time to use these elaborate tables, by combining them with another elaborate table. If I need a Wizard, whether they be enemy or ally or something in-between, I consult this generator. It doesn't auto roll, so you'll need your dice on you. But I find it useful, so I thought I would entrust it to you.

Use this Table Once for a Low-level Wizard.
For a Mature Wizard, add +1d4 to their HD and spellcasting dice, give them a unique weapon, give them +1d6 extra spells, and roll 1d4 more times on the Corruption Table. Give them one rare spell. To assign the Wizard a rare spell, roll for an ordinary spell, then roll 1d8 to determine which school the rare spell belongs too. Then replace one of the Wizard's less useful spells with the rare one. The spells that you replaced should go into the Wizard's spellbook.
For a Master Wizard, add +1d6 to their HD and spellcasting dice, give them a unique weapon, give them +1d8 spells, and roll 1d6 more times on the Corruption Table. Give them 1d3 rare spells. To assign the Wizard a rare spell, roll for an ordinary spell, then roll 1d8 to determine which school the rare spell belongs too. Then replace one of the Wizard's less useful spells with the rare one. The spells that you replaced should go into the Wizard's spellbook.

I don't know exactly how this came up, but this is an idea that has never really occurred to me. You see, I have a problem. My games...
A question for you, gentle viewer? What is the difference between a Wizard and a Magic-User? Or a Magic-User and a Sorcerer? Or a Wiza...
