Any further details on the Red Wizards, specifically? The name has me thinking of the ones from D&D, but I've been mistaken about things like that on occasion.
Both of those are from Forgotten Realms.

Yeah, I've played a campaign set in the Forgotten Realms using GURPS 4e since the Basic Set came out in 2004.

I haven't actually written out the style of the Qarradu sarrupim azamrutu (Warriors of the Argent Lance) or their Astabarri ('Lance-bearers'), but they are the martial arm of the Northern Wizards in Unther and specialize in force magic (pure magical force, telekinesis, force fields, etc.).

They fight with staves, but learn a spell to create a field of pure magical force at the end of their staff, creating a Force Lance or glaive that for the more powerful among them can slice through any substance as if it were not there.

And, yes, they can fight very much like Jedi Knights.
