New Zealand City’s ‘Official Wizard’ Was Taken Off Its Payroll Because Magic Is Dead

Posted by in category: futurism

A New Zealand city seems to have left itself vulnerable to a revenge hex.

The city council of Christchurch announced that it will stop paying its official wizard $16,000 ($10,400 USD) a year in December, New Zealand news site Stuff reported.

Ian Brackenbury Channell (aka the Wizard) has been serving as the city’s appointed necromancer since the olden days of 1998. Over the past few decades he has made a total of $368,000 (roughly $258,825 USD) “to provide acts of wizardry and other wizard-like-services — as part of promotional work for the city of Christchurch.”
