'The Wizards' Guild is for the more subtle people of the disc. We achieve dominance (without fail) by use of the quickness of our thoughts and the judicious application of some of the myriad spells at our disposal. And, unlike an uncouth barbarian warrior, if the situation demands violence, we don't endanger ourselves by taking part in the fray, we blow the bastards up from a distance.'

The Wizards' Guild, based at the Unseen University of Ankh-Morpork, is a collection of pointy-hatted folk specializing in the science of spellcasting.

Institutions

Unseen University

Academy of Artificers

Illusionary Institute of Learning

Bes Pelargic L-space Bubble

House of Magic

Joining

Student Wizards are recruited by Ragnel, who may be summoned by requesting to 'join' outside the student lounge of the Unseen University, or by Headmaster Cutwell inside the Sto Lat Artificers' Academy.

Orders

The Wizards' Guild consists of 8 unique skillsets spread over 19 orders - the eight orders of the Unseen University, their eight Hedge equivalents and three Illusionary Institute of Learning (Klatchian) orders (not currently joinable).

Hedge orders clone the primaries of their respective Unseen University equivalent, while the Klatchian Illusionary Institute of Learning orders all have the same primaries as Mrs. Widgery's Lodgers (or Red) - as a result there are only eight orders with 'unique' primaries.

Below is a table comparing each order's primaries.
