I am thinking of running a good party for the first time and am looking for a “ good” mage.
Let me define “good” in this context:
1. Moderately competent – can crank out some magic missiles and do some crowd control (Confusion etc)
2. Not annoying in terms of personality
3. May have some quest / plot lines (optional)
To give an example of sacrificing quality for annoyance avoidance, my last game, I actually dumped Kagian because I could not take the old man whining all the time. Shar-Teel (his replacement) was not as effective as a tank but her man-hatey comments were no where near as annoying and at times, a little amusing.
So – as a Good Party Noob – would appreciate some guidance.
