Slang

I'm thinking of a game setting.

Roaring 20's / Prohibition, with magic.

Recycling my Magic Returns mods to the magic system means that mages typically have a silver dagger on them until they get above a certain skill level with their spells.

The slang for lower level mages is "knife".

Higher level mages will tend to leave the dagger sheathed, but there are many advantages to using a wand, rod or staff to cast spells.

The slang for these mages is "stick".

Truly high level mages often dispense with these manual aids.

The slang for a mage who isn't using a dagger or something with the Staff enchantment on it is "hat".

Changes the meaning of the song, "Mack the Knife" don't it?
