    I've never been adverse to the existence of magicians, they actually would work very well as one of those commoner classes, such as the ones presented in the DMG. A playable one at that. They definately work better as NPCs to amaze and annoy.

    I played a magician (2E AD &D) long ago. The DM made birthright a low magic campaign. The campaign was more typical D&D until we played King of the Giant Downs and the group's Paladin became ruler. My magician character was kind of a wily counselor advising the group's "leader" a paladin on magic and statecraft. In a wilderness setting any magic was a big deal. Also with the experience bonuses nonblooded charaters received, my character got to 8th level while the blooded characters were around 6th.

    I think that the magican (and non-blooded characters) are worth playing, but it depends on the type of campaign.

    However, the suggestion was for a blooded magician and I am not sure why anyone would want one of these!

    How about just for the challenge of playing one, good roleplaying can make any type of character fun to play.

    All I gotta say about this one is that "can you imagine what a highly skilled magician would be capable of in a diplomatic setting?" His abilities at scrying and illusory magic would grant amazing advantages if used properly.

    As to whether or not I'd play a magician (blooded or not) in Birthright the answer is yes. As a matter of fact, if my present character decides to die on me a magician is what I was planning on bringing in.

    I think that depends on the makeup of the magician class -there are currently a lot of different versions out there.

    If your DM uses a magician class that is on par with the other PC classes, I'd say yes. For those who use the magican as another type of adept, I'd say no.

    Arlen makes the best argument however for the use of a blooded magician!
