'Mages kill each other to become the Magister.
The Magister of Mystra is one of the most mysterious - and misunderstood -
beings in the Forgotten Realms setting. Some say the Magister is
simply the most powerful mortal mage in all of Toril. Perhaps, but there
is something more, something unique, about being so touched by the Mother
of All Magic.
The mages of Faerun roll up their sleeves and craft the spells and items
that they hope will empower them to win the office of the Magister. A few
will succeed. More will wish they'd never taken up magic in the first
Here at last, one can learn all the secrets, abilities, and sacred duties
of the Magiser. Plus, discover the face of Lady Noumea and the identity of
her successor as Magister. Also, read the guidelines on how a PC mage
might become the Magister.
The book holds the history of the office, new powers, spells, magic items,
a roster of select Magisters from the past, and guidelines on how to
incorporate the Magister into your campaign.
One Magister became a god; others have hoped to.'
