Jovus, we double posted. XD

Just so, I'm not going to go back on my offer. Take it if you wish.

Take fourth place as well.

I will, thanks. The Bless will go on the Staff, obviously. I think I'll take a racial template, but I'm not sure.

I haven't played a DF wizard before, nor really seen one in action, so I'm jumping on this as a learning experience, since I will soon be GMing a DF game myself, and I should be familiar with how things play. Also, I'd be more than obliged if you share your insights from this little experiment.

I would recommend that you take the High Elf template because it includes +1 IQ in it, which will boost your IQ to 16. This will put all of your hard spells at 20 for just one point each, which reduces their FP cost by 2 and halves the time to cast them.

Alternatively, the Leprechaun template costs 20 points and would shore up some of the physical lacking of the wizard with +2 DX and at SM-4 everyone is at a -4 to hit you at all times (which could be made even harder with the Blur spell). And of course Ridiculous Luck will help you avoid any and all failures and critical failures during spell casting or defense.

Edit: I didn't notice that you'd already chosen the Dark One template, my bad.

I don't think it's fair that the wizard player gets a template for free, especially to those of us who made our characters before that offer. The wizard is already the most powerful template, even before they get all the goodness of the Celestial template or the Elder-Spawn templates or even the High Elf, Leprechaun, or Cat-Folk.

Edit:

I see now that our wizard has chosen not to take advantage of the more powerful options available, so whatever. I don't think the free stuff for posting characters first is fair either, especially in play by post.

It does not matter, that offer was not extended to everyone, we got stuff for free. Stripe was not taking a list and going through it to see what he wants, if he was then your character would be left out since in the OP it was stated that Stripe was looking for a Knight Wizard and Thief first.

you decided to make a bard.

I am ok with the way things are, and no I would not have a different Point of view if I was second third or last. Don't complain about something that someone got for free and you didn't. its a game.

I'm not complaining for that reason. I'm not even going to take the free stuff I did get. I just don't think it's very useful for testing DF characters if you're giving out free stuff to some of them and not others. It's going to skew the results.

All that aside, we're short a healer.

So unless Stripe will let the bard, wizard, or wizard-thief take healing spells we may not last very long anyways...
