I going to chip in on this issue with an argument that might, might just persuade Tomas and the gang at FL...
The English term sorcerer more usually describes an upper class, gentleman wizard. Of course most of the characters in Forbidden Lands are not gentlemen as such, so maybe sorcerer is not the best term...

Sorry, have to disagree with you on this. Sorcerer is really just another name for a magician, and can change depending on setting. In most of my reading experience (and I consume a fair amount of fantasy fiction), sorcerer is often the opposite of what you describe - they're magic users who operates outside of the wider medical community. I've never (that I can recall) encountered a gentlemanly one, and am curious where you've seen this.
