FFBE

A rod of fearsome magical power that is believed to be a remnant of ancient times. The term "wizard" was a special title given only to the best of mages, but it has since lost this original meaning after black mages began using the term to refer to themselves and their secret activities. The wizard rod, however, has not lost any of the power it has housed since times of old.

Etymology Edit

Wizard is another name for a Magician. Wizards in fantasy literature and RPGs often draw from the fiction of J. R. R. Tolkien, whose Wizards of Middle-earth are a group of beings outwardly resembling Men but possessing much greater physical and mental power. Each Wizard has robes of a characteristic color, Gandalf the Grey being a quintessential example.

Magus is the Latin word for "wizard". Its plural is Magi.
