Namely, do 2nd Level wizards and powerful undead spellcasters receive scrolls sent via a messenger bird from their former institutions of wizardry, asking them to donate 100 gold pieces? Can't afford it this year? How about donating 100 silver pieces? How about our early-riser-from-the-grave special membership category of only 100 copper pieces?
