    The Sage is not so bad and I was thinking of the Arcane bloodline as well. It would could work but Raistlin need not take levels of sorcerer and wizard back and forth - like I said it would be a little extra "unexplained" power.

    Let me work on how to do stats and such will be back on tonight.

    But this being a Pathfinder game, adding sorcerer levels instead of wizard would weaken the character and not ad something...
    Maybe we could handle the extras with feats or something, but not by slowing wizard progression.

    Well my reasoning is as follows...

    - This is set for AD&D - in which Wizards need way more XP to advance a level than warriors, clerics, rogues, etc. *breaks out his AD&D PHB* Wizards stay behind about one level through out their careers if the party gains XP at the same rate. They do "catch up" but most classes are close to advancing again.

    3rd lvl wizard - rangers and rogues are 1,000xp from 4th and clerics already are 4th.

    So this keeps Raistlin at about the level he would be for the games.

    - The extra power I think would come from the added cantrips. Thinking if Raistlin started the next module at 6th lvl along with everyone else, he could be a Wizard4/Sorcerer2. This gives him 5 Sorcerer cantrips and 4 Wizard ones. So nine spells you can cast with unlimited use.

    Up to you how you wish to level up the two classes afterwards but this would be about his power level to start before entering the elven forest and then heading to Pax Tharkas. (i.e. Raistlin did not have third lvl spells yet but did have a lot of power at his disposal)

    Remember this is only a way you could go. I also see Raistlin as a Wizard/Loremaster. Take your time in deciding think about the character and also what you wish to play.

    Well if you find the time Caramon would be a straight Fighter6. I think his combat tree would be Power Attack, Cleave, etc. If you wish to work on some feats and skills when you have a moment go right ahead.

    As for Pathfinder, I've been playing 3.X since it came out, and I've looked over Pathfinder once or twice and it seems neat.
    Neat it is. What would you like for a character from what is left? And also you may want to look at your split group character. Hmmm... I better split them up to show people how they would run.

    Would you be interested in Gilthanas as a Magus?? I think that would fit and be fun all in one.

    Magus looks fun, what are we talking about character development wize?

    Race, gender, personality, history, personal focus when it comes to spell/weapon/class ability choices, any such info that you have would be quite handy.

    Gilthanas Kanan (GIL-than-as KAN-nan) grew up as the middle child in the Qualinesti Royal Family, brother to Porthios Kanan and Laurana Kanan, and a cousin of Tanis Half-Elven. As the second son of Speaker Solostaran Kanan, Gilthanas was brought up to become a diplomat and spokesman for his people, and also become a skilled fighter and moderately skilled magic-user as well.

    Gilthanas was an adventurer and a hero of not only his people, but the folk of Ansalon, for his deeds during the War of the Lance as a Hero of the Lance. He was described as being a handsome Qualinesti elf, who had blond hair and hazel eyes, and was both brave and charming.

    Early Life

    The young Gilthanas grew up in the court of his father, the Speaker of the Sun, in the elven city of Qualinost. Living in the beautiful kingdom, the elven prince was treated with respect and love, and befriended his half-elven cousin Tanis. The young pair became the closest of friends and delighted in the toys of the Dwarven merchant Flint Fireforge. However as they grew older, Tanis fell in love with Gilthanas' younger sister Laurana. When his sister reciprocated the half-elf's affections, Gilthanas confronted Tanis and their friendship dissolved. The young elf believed in the superiority of elves over any other race, and was furious that his sister would consider dallying with anything other than a full-blooded elf.

    In 308 AC, Gilthanas took his one-night vigil in the Kentommenai-kath, to support his brother Porthios during his Kentommen (an elven coming of age ceremony). Several murders had occurred around this time, and even though they were no longer friends, Tanis suspected that Gilthanas was the next to be targeted. The half-elf reached the Kentommenai-kath just as the murderer was about to strike, and saved Gilthanas from certain death. The elven prince then escorted Tanis back to Qualinost, however the half-elf tackled him and knocked him unconscious, so he could prevent the murderer (which turned out to be Arelas Kanan, the youngest brother of Solostaran and Kethrenan Kanan) from carrying out his dark plot. Gilthanas stayed within Qualinost for several more decades until he had his own Kentommen and became a man in the eyes of the Qualinesti elves.

    War of the Lance

    Whilst scouting the forests with a band of his fellow elves in 350 AC, Gilthanas came upon a human smith named Theros Ironfeld, who he initially suspected was a spy of Highlord Verminaard. Having heard Theros' story and allayed his suspicions, Gilthanas then commissioned the smith to help in building a fleet that would allow the elves to flee from Qualinesti to Qualimori, so that if the Dragonarmies continued their push against the elven kingdom, the Qualinesti elves would be able to escape. The smith agreed and the work went underway, as the elven prince returned to Qualinost. As the War of the Lance continued, Gilthanas led a force of elves towards Pax Tharkas, to free the prisoners held within by Verminaard. However his force was ambushed by Dragonarmy forces and wiped out. The elven prince was knocked unconscious, however his men were burned alive, increasing his hatred of the Dragonarmies and Verminaard, once he awakened and returned to Qualinost.

    By 351 AC, Gilthanas returned to Solace...

    I don't see the need to keep close to the progression regarding spells. Don't forget that Clerics, for example had only up to level 7 spells...
    Forcing another class will also reduce the favored class bonuses.

    Even as it reduces the character's power, I'm fine with taking 1 or 2 sorceror (sage) levels.
    What about the Wizard of the High Towers Prestige Classes?

    I don't see a need to keep close I just wanted to start around the same. Then from there it could lead anywhere.

    I think I would like to keep things like the Wizard of High Sorcery and Knights of Solmania more fluff groups than actually Prestige classes. It would be easier than trying to convert all that into PF. The less we change/add the better, as it keeps everyone on as equal footing as we can get.

    Again I think Loremaster a good PrC for Raistlin - and that could be fluffed up by just changing the name from Loremaster to Wizard of High Sorcery. Since there could be different Loremasters with different focuses or secrets learned.

    any idea in which know skill I should put the Skill focus? I also really like some of the Arcane Discoveries. Could I take them as Lore Master Secrets?
