Wizard Hat Town by Giorgio D’Albano

First an important note, from the Wizard’s perspective…

How to tell a Wizard from a Witch

  1. A Wizard has a Tower, a Witch has a hovel. 
  2. A Wizard is an willing hermit. A Witch is a nosey busy body.
  3. A Wizard went through rigorous coursework under the supervision of learned sages to acquire their power. A witch thinks a few tricks picked up in the woods is enough.
  4. A Wizard wears a pointy hat which is a multipurpose tool and symbol of their efforts. A witch is trying to intimidate people by copying wizards.
  5. A wizard has used years of observational study to know all of the practical effects of a spell. A witch uses Marvelo’s Instantaneous Combustion to boil tea.
  6. A wizard uses finely tuned instruments created by master glass-blowers and craftsmen. A witch dumps everything in a cauldron. 
  7. Wizards and Witches are both fond of pickling things. You are more likely to learn something new and arcane observing a Wizard’s pickles.
  8. A wizard elevates themselves above the common rabble and lets them handle their own mundane lives. A witch gets down into the mud with them and tries to order them around.
  9. A wizard is upfront and fair about the price of their services. A witch expects people to throw them alms for their every word.
  10. Having a wizard in your community is like having a nuclear deterrent against one’s enemies. Having a witch in your community is like having a magically powered in-law looking over everyone’s shoulder. Guess which one regular folk prefer?

Note that one of the differences is not gender, a Witch or a Wizard can be any gender even if ignorant townsfolk might make assumptions if you have a pointy hat and a wart on your nose.
