Shadow Mages

Postby Edwin » Thu Apr 05, 2001 10:08 am

After a long discussion with Dude (founder of the shadow guild)
we have decided to found a new, incredibly powerful guild:
The Shadow Mages

Only assasins and mages are allowed.

I bet this is what you all wanted!!! Image

Well let me be the first of the old Shadow Guild to convert. Image The combination of assassin/mage is extremly potent, so this bodes well for the guild's future. Image

Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

No spam...This will be an interesting change of pace from the old Shadow Guild Image(But what fun was had! Image) How should we start the debate then? By presenting the stats of our characters or with discussion of advanced stratagems?

Sorry Kayless..... Image
Here's the first question: when dual class??
Is it better having higher assassin abilities and lower mages spells (with ToB coming out soon), or the opposite?? I think it's better waiting for higher lvl assassin abilities.

sorcerers are allowed too Image
and if u have a assassin or mage in your char. doesn't matter if it's a dual class you're in Image Image
BUT if u are a swashbuckler in any sort even as a little dual U ARE NOT ALLOWED IN!!!!!!!!

i hate swashbucklers especially swashbuckler/mages (think of Seamon Havarian and discover u do too Image Image)
