Introduction[edit]

I recently played a game as a wizard and he died in the first session. I was annoyed, so I created this

Game Rule Components[edit]

Spells, Powers, Soulmelds, Stances, etc...[edit]

spells starting at third level, defensive stance at eleventh level.

Items[edit]

none needed (you can have them if you want, just no armor)

Progression[edit]

Starting Ability Scores (Before Racial Adjustments): highest in int, then con, then dex, as normal for a wizard. Race:Dwarf (if con is below 14) or human (con 14+). Dwarves get +2 con, and you really need the extra hitpoints at low levels, even as a fighter. If you can afford to, humans get an extra feat which allows you to develop faster.

Munchkin-Size Me[edit]

Quickened true strike and bulls strength go a long way.


Limitations[edit]

You're basically a wizard with fighter levels. You can attack things with a sword or use magic, but you are slightly weaker than a fighter or wizard of the same level.


DM Counters[edit]

None needed. This is far from overpowered.
