Anyone (and EVERYONE) who knows me, is aware that I am the Magic-User Man (it’s where the Warlock part of my net name came from, and why I called my primary Shadowrun character Warlock as well) – I LOVE playing Magic Users when I get to play, in fact out of the three Demi-Human Characters I have played (Harlequin a High Elf Fighter/Magic-User, Grimtook a Gnome Assassin/Illusionist, and Alryk Di-Grizz a Half Orc Fighter) two were Multi-Classed Spell Casters.
As I mentioned in previous posts, I’ve been more of a DM than a Player much of my gaming “life” – but when I do play, I prefer spell casters – and in particular the ADnD Magic User class (The only exception to that rule was "Crowman the Barbarian")
