Where do these levels come from? This man is working day in and day out
to run an "empire"; how the heck will he find time to do spell research
or practice a weapon? I can see the Chamberlain having attained sixth or
seventh level in a single class over the years and maybe as high as
tenth, but a level higher than 10th for him is just plain unreasonable

I realize that 30-40 magicians and 10-15 true mages is a high number for
the city, but you have to remember that the College of Sorcery and its
libraries will draw mages from all over the continent. I think the
numbers are reasonable given the stature of the college.
