I have a question. Of course in a world like this Magic users would have an advantage over other players. I wanted to know if any PC's were allowed to be Wizards? And if they are there needs to be some kind of limit to what kind and level of powers are allowed soon.
Any other guidelines that other types of characters should follow would be useful to know now too. We wouldn't want a fighter type character to be able to stare down an opposing legion of trolls and walk away unscathed either.
wizards and such would be like wizards in DnD. While they have amazing magical abilities, that cant take a hit better then a 3 year old kid. and when wearing armor, they have trouble casting spells. In a one on one fight, a wizard vs. a fighter, it should be pretty much even. The fighter rushes in and swins with his sword, as the wizard cast an amazing fireball. Whoever connects first would win. But you cant just kill someone's character either. They have to say its ok. But dont try to keep you dwarven warrior alive at age 300, unless you have a very very good reason for it(basically, magic...) personally, at any given time, ill be RPing about 2-4 characters, and could decide to kill one at any moment.
My character escaelus isnt a sorcerer but he can make some magical items through artificing and enchantment.
I have no problem with people playing wizards, so long as they arent of the planeswalker/demi god status.
If you wanna be a necromancer or a fire magic that shoots miniture meteors out his fingertips then i say go ahead. But you are not gonna be starting down a legion of trolls, and you certainly arent gonna be able to just kill people with a flick of the wrist.
