also, because everyone and anyone was submitting spells some wizards who had, for instance, become inspired while eating an egg mayo sandwich had written their spells on totally inappropriate objects because they needed to write them down NOW. The egg mayo sandwich then killed Bernard the thick (in both senses of the word) when he ate it and the subsequent magical discharge killed everyone within 100 meters (two pigeons and 100 ants and Bernard, obviosly)
Another group that was flourishing were the Alchemysts. Who were basically Alchemists without dictionaries. These unfortunate people caused even more explosions than the wizards. And then caused even more by trying to revvive those who had died in explosions. Many lost limbs and Alchemysts became the people most interested in creating working prosthetic limbs. The solution was found by making them out of metal and infusing them with magic. Unfortunatly this made them even more explosive. Some of the most famous alchemists were Roy Pony (discovered how to make explosion using only a piece of cotton and a badass angry face) And Ted L. Reek (Discovered how to make explosions using his bare hands. It was later discovered that he kept gunpowder in his prosthetics. This still didn't explain how he could create whole entire walls out of nothing. Useful for a profession that requires constant house repares.)
(Not referencing a certain manga that I am a raving mental fan of- FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST (ok. FMA disc hybrid thing
I'm so original.
fear my name punning skills )
I'm going to need a swat team, ready to mobilize, street maps covering the whole of florida, a pot of coffee, 12 jammy dodgers and A FEZ.
