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
Istari 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.
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.
