Within MUME, there are theoretically an unlimited number of
Istari, as the Istari Quest is the route a player
must take to reach immortality (see
quest) — as such, the Istar is considered a
"proto-Ainur". The Istari levels are 23 to 25,
with a good aligned level 25 Istar being the Head of the
Istari Council, the Tan Istar. It is the purpose of the Istari in the game to
help low level
players, and this is also the only way they can gain
experience for themselves. It might not be a good
advice to seek experience while
leading the young heroes in evil areas; you have to pay
way too much attention to them for gaining experience.
Istari should be there not only to help gain experience, but to advise new players of simple rules, and to teach them the basics of gameplay. It is not up to the Ainur to do this.
All Istari have a limit of ten years to prove their worth as an Istar. What happens if the shamed Istar fails is unknown to mortals.
Failure to adequately complete all conditions of the quest will have serious ramifications. The gift of Eru will be lost. This applies at all levels of the quest: metamorph and Istar.
