Adjudicators

These mysterious wizard-types used to form an important part of the Nerath empire, filling judicial duties, controlling small armies of golem guardsmen, and performing any number of tasks with their magic, which was a mystery even then.

Adjudicator magic involved a lot of rituals and spells with long cast times or concentration requirements, and often worked at such a long range that many Adjudicators performed their grim tasks from remote, hidden lairs.

Few Adjudicators survive today, and frankly they aren't particularly needed any more, but in some places their influence is still felt, even when they are not physically present. Though they still take apprentices, the nature of their magic is a mystery scores of men have failed to crack.

So far one Adjudicator has been encountered - Kevin Glummox, an apprentice to an Adjudicator who survived the fall of Nerath and therefore extremely elderly. Unfortunately he chose to introduce himself as the victim of a murder mystery.

Adjudicator magic looks like this:

(1)
\begin{align} $$\int_0^\infty magic^{-x^2} dx=\frac{\sqrt{\Im}}{2} + {n\choose wizards}, magic_1 = \alpha+\beta ~~\mbox{and}~~ magic_2=\alpha-\beta $$ $$ |magic| = \left\{ \begin{array}{rl} -\wp^z &\mbox{ if $F(x,y)<0$} \\ WIZARDS &\mbox{ otherwise} \end{array} \right. $$ $$ F(\triangle,y)=0 ~~\mbox{and}~~ \left| \begin{array}{ccc} F''_{\alpha\alpha} & F''_{\alpha\beta} & F'_\alpha \\ F''_{\beta\alpha& F''_{\beta\beta} & F'_\beta \\ F'_\alpha & F'_\beta & 0 \end{array}\right| = MAGIC! $$ $$ \ \langle MAGIC!\rangle &\approx& \underbrace{w+\overbrace{i+\cdots}^{{}=zard }+s} _{\mathrm{magic}} ~~ \propto \Re+\wp+{\overbrace{\Rm\cdots}}^{126}+x $$ $$ \mathop{\int \!\!\! \int}_{\mathbf{magic} \in \mathbf{\infty}^2} \! \langle \mathbf{x},\mathbf{magic}\rangle \,d\mathbf{x} = \frac{1}{\displaystyl \triangle+ \frac{|evoc.|}{\displaystyle |conj.| + \frac{1}{\displaystyle 2+ {n\choose wizards} }}} + \frac{1}{1+\frac{|divin.|}{|necro.|+\frac{1}{3+wizards}}} $$ \end{align}

i.e. mysterious, incomprehensible goddamn gibberish.
