    What to do (A Mage regent with

    According to the DUNGEONS & DRAGONS Companion-level rules, a
    land-owning magic-user is called a "Magist" (MAY-jist), and a wandering
    magic-user is known as a "Magus" (MAY-jus).
    Most Wizard regents in the BIRTHRIGHT rules that I know of do just sell
    their services and realm spells, or use the Alchemy realm spell. Mine,
    however, (being the greedy sod that she is) has recently been looking in
    to her own guild holdings and trade routes.

    Landowning regents get money from taxes. Law regents can ponce money off
    other regents. Temple holders get a steady flow of some money. Guild
    regents have more money than Haelyn.. And Wizards are completely broke.
    They can either make money through Alchemy, or through use of Coffer
    Credit. Otherwise they're screwed.

    This is exactly how regent mages aquire money. Also, in addition, he may rent
    out the use of his sources to other wizards. Just think, the cost of
    reserching a spell, then compare that to letting someone use your source. $$$.
    Also bu alling his services to another regent, the regent is usually more than
    happy pay for any expenses a mage may have. Remember, True magic is rare, and
    realm magic is even harder to find. It is a comoditiy that a good player can
    use wisely.
