Orders of High Sorcery worships and receives its powers from the
brother gods, Lunitari, Solinari, and Nuitari, which are represented
by the three moons that orbit Krynn in Ethereal Plane.
Wizards of the Black Robes worship Nuitari whose domain is commanding
and destructive magic. Nuitari, where the god of black magic resides,
is the smallest and nearest moon. Its orbit takes 8 days with 2 days
per quarter. Nuitari cannot be detected, except by the Wizards of the
Black Robes, unless it eclipses other stars and moons.

alignments of the moons of magic. Apprentice wizards and renegade
wizards are unaffected by the lunar phases.

level that wizard can cast). These moon phase effects are cumulative with the moon
alignment effects. Note that only wizards of 6th level or higher and
with Intelligence of 15 or greater receive High Sanction bonuses.
Others gain only 1 additional spell (of any level that wizard can
Edition Rule: A Wizard of the Black Robes can cast spells at +1
caster level and with saving throws DCs against their spells increased
by 1 when Nuitari is at High Sanction.
