Characters at this level have no special supernatural abilities -- or if they do, such abilities are completely latent and unusable. These characters may be wealthy, powerful, intelligent, or highly skilled -- or not -- but whatever their station in life, they got their solely through the use of their mundane talents ... with maybe a little help from somebody higher up.
Mundane characters have a wide variety of options open to them, but they cannot
pursue any of the supernatural career paths. They can only use magic in the
form of rituals or pre-made magical items,
and they cannot invent new rituals or craft new magical items for themselves.
A mage at this level is either "on the leash" or is only a neophyte in a magical school. A psi at this level is a latent talent -- his or her abilities have not yet manifested themselves.
