Magician Upstart
The Upstart Magician has acheived technical Mastery of Magecraft, despite their relative inexperience and lack of supporting abilities. If they can manage to survive long enough to mature into more well rounded abilities they will be a potent force. In the meantime they are a bit big for their britches and might come to an unpleasant end.
The Upstart is fun to play because their inherent imbalance provides an interesting roleplaying challenge. It is all too easy to over commit with them, lured into a false sense of power by their potent Magic.
NOTE: What exactly indicates Master Magician status might vary from setting to setting, or even from region to region within the same setting, and Magecraft is difficult to measure to begin with. However, as a rule of thumb a character that has at least 750 Active Points in Spells and an average Skill Roll of at least 15- can be considered to definitely be a Master, and characters approaching this threshold can probably pass as Masters in most circumstances unless hard pressed.

Apprentice Magician
The Magecraft Magic System is detailed here.
Magicians (or Mages) study a practical and efficient type of Magic called Magecrafting. They are a breed well adapted to the rigors of an adventuring lifestyle but also find reasons to spend time in centers of learning. Tending to have a smaller complement of flexible Spells rather than an array of very specific and narrowly focused Spells, Magicians make up for their lack of breadth with the ability to cast Spells as long as their fatigue level permits.
