As we all know, the Peripheral Code explicately forbids magi from becoming court wizards.
I find myself wondering, in your opinions, what would be the effect upon a saga of changing the background to permit this. To be clear, I don't mean having this part of the Code overruled or repealed, I mean having a saga in which the ruling never occured.
Why am I thinking of doing this, you ask? Because there are a number of interesting historical figures who are in some way connected with magi. Notable to my saga is one Gerard, Chancellor of England under both William the Conqueror and his son William Rufus, later Bishop of Hereford and later still Archbishop of York, reputed (by his ecclesiastic foes) to have secretly been astrologer and magician.
Sure, Gerard and others like him could be a "hedge wizard" but, I thought to myself, why should hedge wizards get all the fun?
So, what do you think the implications would be for allowing court wizards and, for that matter, for allowing historical figures to be magi of the Order?
