Default Re: Dungeon Fantasy with only one Spellcaster "Class"

Maybe using the Magical Styles approach.
In one campaign, I am using a house rule in which there is only one caster class. The catch is that Magery may only be taken with the Three College Only (-20%) limitation. So they only pay 8 character points per level of Magery but they pick three colleges of magic when they make their character and can only pick spells from those.

It has worked well so far. The only hiccup was spell prerequisites often included spells from colleges players didn't pick. To remedy this, I allowed people to spend one point per spell to waive outside-collage prerequisites on that spell.

Everyone seems to like it.

YMMV
