|When hiring a sorceror, one must be careful regarding reassuring stereotypes; they are not a universal indicator of experience, wisdom, or sanity.|
Here's the latest: a d100 table for generating traits for wizards and the like, entitled One Hundred Magic Users. Let me know if the link doesn't work right, I'm experimenting here.
The table offers kennings and nicknames, outstanding features, hobbies/goals, and a hundred different familiars. Perfect when you have a room full of wizards and need to distinguish them on the fly. I didn't do names - they're often campaign-specific in flavor, so I left it out this time.
