Why the Wizard? I'm assuming the people reading this forum are highly interested in playing a Wizard. That he/she'll be your first or 2nd char played, and that you plan on playing the Wiz a lot. So... why? What draws you to the character? Makes you want to spend your limited gaming time driving a Wiz around, rather than a Barb or a Monk or whatever? Do you like the lore and the character bio, or do you play casters in every game, or do you really want to embrace the glass cannon approach, or is there some particular spell you're dying to play with, etc? There are no right or wrong answers to this; I'm just curious.
