Good choice! Depending on your cantrip choices, I may revisit my choice for the bonus high elf one. No biggie, just looking for synergy and as little overlap as possible.That's most votes for Wizard! Working on him...
Any source restrictions for spells? Should I stick with PHB or is Xanathar's okay? (I've almost never played a wizard, so this should be interesting. I honestly don't know anything about which spells are the best, except the ones that I see in play as a DM.)
I kind of want to make him a summoner. As a regular DM, it shouldn't slow me down like it sometimes does with players in IRL games.
I'm in Germany this week til Thursday, I'll see if O can post something in the evening from the hotelI'm thinking wizard as well. Although the RP for any of your ideals sounds like fun.
Still think I need the bare bones of Amitiel in the RG, but all and all I think everyone is about ready.
What cantrips would you suggest, then? I'm happy to collaborate.
I took prestidigitation, but that’s a wizard staple, so I understand if you go for it and I’ll take something else, really not a problem.What cantrips would you suggest, then? I'm happy to collaborate.
Hmmm...we will have two overlapping 'wizard' scholarsHe had very little in the way of attack spells. Part of that was by design, as I don't see him as much of a combatant, but I don't want to feel useless in a fight, so I gave him Magic Missile and Chromatic Orb. They weren't what I was thinking before, but I noticed the gap. If anyone has any better suggestions, I'm up for it. As I mentioned, I'm not very familiar with playing wizards. (Which should be fun!) Also, I swapped Arcana for History. He's more of an experienced fellow than a scholar, if you know what I mean.
I hope @FrontLine MeatShield doesn't mind me playing fast-and-loose with spell's fluff. (For example, I imagine his Magic Missile more of him summoning hard, spikey fruit that flings at the enemy than the more standard roman candle burst.)
