Who’s the Toughest Mage-Type Person in the Area? (Random Table)

Following up from my previous post on warriors, here’s a table for magic-users. Roll 2d20:

How Tough is the Toughest Mage-Type Person in the Area?

1-2: 3rd level / Novice rank with a couple advancements
3-7: 5th level / Seasoned rank
8-13: 7th level / Veteran rank
14-18: 9th level / Heroic rank
19-20: 10th level plus / Legendary rank

Who is the Toughest Mage-Type Person in the Area?

  1. General practitioner studied in astronomy/astrology; has an impressive observatory and orrery.
  2. General practitioner who is elderly, kindly, and more than a bit forgetful; was once a powerful servant of the Great Old Ones before having mind shattered in a ritual stopped by self-sacrificing heroes.
  3. General practitioner of a highly academic bent; quite pretentious.
  4. General practitioner who is a former child prodigy/chosen one; now a dilettante and raconteur.
  5. Effigist focusing on the crafting of exquisite golems of traditional materials such as stone and iron.
  6. Alchemist consumed by the quest to perfect their craft and study the texts of peers and predecessors.
  7. Travelling alchemist who is a canny salesman; a bit lazy in the lab and produces potions with undesirable side effects. The toughest actual local is 2 levels / 1 rank lower; roll again to determine personality.
  8. Illusionist who believes that “reality” is an elaborate illusion of unknown purpose.
  9. Illusionist who is a skilled pick-up artist; dresses in a manner befitting a pirate.
  10. Pyromancer who is a bit quiet and generally keeps to themself.
  11. Chronomancer prone to trailing thoughts and exclamatory interjections.
  12. Summoner with a hyper-competitive outlook; favors elemental creatures such as fire lizards and lightning rats.
  13. Witch living on the fringe of the community and protecting it from the dark forces in the wilds.
  14. Witch living on the fringe of the community who occasionally corrupts virgins and steals children.
  15. Diviner who oddly always comments on future gastrointestinal health along with any other predications.
  16. Necromancer obsessed with flesh golems and other modified undead.
  17. Necromancer with a horde of skeletons ordered to defend against intruders, keep the house tidy, and make surprisingly tasty and not-at-all disgusting dinners.
  18. Infernalist who seeks political prominence and wealth.
  19. Thief of forgotten and forbidden lore (aka “adventurer”) with an arsenal of deadly artifacts; will not hesitate to electrocute anyone who looks at them the wrong way.
  20. Doppelgänger; roll again to see who it replaced.
