I would personally suggest not allowing access to spells above 2nd level in
this school, because it a) makes magic items much more possible (Enchant an
Item and Permanency) b) includes powerful reality affecting spells (not
illusion/information generating spells, such as teleport and dispel magic)
available to magicians which doesn't fit with my view of the Birthright setting.
