A contemporary wizard is no less a slave of names than his ancient counterpart was. Naming is owning, a fact known to the point of cliché in every culture. It is revealing that the first act of domination is always naming.
Nothing is more frustrating than failing to perform a spell because of a forgotten name. The judicious wizard will carefully take note that the most precious names are precisely those rarely used, and thus, those at once hardest to acquire and most prone to be lost. He will systematically take note of them, in whatever way suits him most.
This practioner has learned that the hard way, and — he is ashamed to admit — it has taken several annoying instances to teach him that hard lesson. Despite his passion about the Typesetting School, it is very seldom he actually practices any magic above level 3. This very week he has spent hours preparing a spell that would have take him considerably less time, had he remembered the name “imposition“.
A name he was sure he had once known.
