The present day guild is much like a University, with departments of the different Disciplines, known as Schools. There is some rivalry between the Schools, but this is only really pronounced in Kar Chorovar itself. Some mages show allegiance to a particular School by wearing the School's colour or crest.

Each level, the mage has five points to spend on bettering himself. At first level, a basic mage chooses one level in five of the schools. At subsequent levels, the mage may spend up to two points in each school (for a total of five points). For example, Rhazir the Artificer wishes to one day become an alchemist. As an apprentice (1st level) mage, he has knowledge of the Blue, Brown, Green, Grey and Gold disciplines. At second level, he spends two points in Brown (he wishes to become a creator of magical items), and two points in Grey (he prizes knowledge above destructive power). He has one more point to spend. He could buy another level in Blue, green, or Gold to give him level 2 in that school. However, wishing to broaden his abilities, he chooses a school which he previously did not know about, and gains one level of Violet (the art of Convokation). Rhazir has level 3 in Brown and Grey, and level one in Blue, Green, Gold, and Violet. He has no knowledge of White or Red (so he'd better stay out of combat).
This may seem confusing. Rhazir is a second level mage, but he can cast 3rd level spells. The difference lies between the experience level of the character (how many adventures he/she has gone on), and the discipline levels of the character (how much magical knowledge he/she has). From hence forth, all talk of levels will pertain to the levels a mage has in the individual disciplines.
1st level spell "By my power, <spell name>"
2nd level spell "By the power of the <colour> Discipline, <spell name>"
3rd level spell "By the power of the <colour> Discipline, the Art of <name>, <spell name>"
4th level spell "By the might of the mysteries arcane I call the power of the <colour> Discipline, the Art of <name>, <spell name>"
5th level spell "By my mastery of the powers that harken from the great mystery arcane I call the power of the <colour> Discipline, the Art of <name>, <spell name>"
Example: If Rhazir wished to cast Shatter, he would eat 2 spell points, say the verbal "By the power of the Brown Discipline, Shatter" and touch the target item.
