    Khinasi Mages

    >Same with my campaign... only Reincarnation is a Wizard spell.

    Err, how would things be handles in by Khinasi mages then? As far as
    I know they are bound by their oath not to mingle with death and stuf
    (I don't have the books so I could be wrong).

    You may escape into it at will, you need no secret password,

    IMHO, both options are valid.
    Attacking the mage on sight, would be typical of a mage with more loyalty
    to his oaths, than self-preservation instinct (or wisdom).
    Withdrawing, and organizing against the evil mage, would be typical of the
    mage with more wisdom (he would have to organize with all due haste, I
    suggest, otherwise the loyalty to his oath could be called into question).

    No organization survives long, if its members are that mindlessly loyal.

    Well, as the Khinasi are supposed to do anything they can to stop the use
    of necromantic, it would make INFINATELY more sense for the lowly lvl 1
    mage to go for help, before trying to stop the obviously more powerful
    foe. The goal is to stop this "evil" person from continuing their heinous
    ways, not to sacrifice yourself in an obviously futile effort.

    Think about our real world. Think about our real world. In Cerilia people
    think much like us. How can you go saying what a "Khinasi wizard" does in
    that case or in that other. It's like saying what a Doctor does in that case
    or in that other.
    All doctors have the mandatory of save to his best possibility others' life.
    Khinasi wizard have their own mandatory.
    Find to me two player who play exactly the same with a Khinasi wizard, you
    can't, i think, so let's be tha same. You as DM, IMHO, have to play the role
    of each different character, not of one for each kind of character.
    To say, now the KW flee, that other in that other situation fight, that
    other goes in search of help and that other...
    and we cannot tell all of reactions that a KW can have, all right.
    As a DM i alway put myself in charge of the character whose talkin about and
    i try to think with his infos and his mind. So, it's not easy, but it goes.

    Uhhhh..actually, I was referring more to what seemed to make more sense in
    getting the job accomplished, and not as to what every single individual
    person in Cerilia would do ina similar situation.

    Umm, Nadorastor:

    I'm sorry if I don't get it? What do you mean with putting yourself in
    charge of the character whose talkin about....

    Not an insult, friend, I just don't quite get it.

    The Khinasi are indeed bound by the power of the Temple of Rilni to follow
    their oaths, and cannot break them because they feel like it... I do think
    both points are valid here, the mage can do whatever, so long as the player
    can justify to the DM in question that she is abiding by her oaths. a la,
    the wizard lets the fighters go in first :)

    In my last post about this matter i've only tryed to say that we can't
    decide how "a khinasi mage" acts in that or that other situation, cause "a
    khinasi mage" doen't exist, there are only a lot of individual khinasi
    mages, each of them different from the other.
    If the mage is a PC i think that you right when you say that the player can
    do whatever he want but he must justify to the DM, instead when i said that
    i try to put myself in charge of the character i was referring to a
    situation when the mage is a NPC, so you, as DM, must decide what he does,
    and IMO if you decide what "a khinasi mage" does in that or that other
    situation you risk that all your NPC khinasi mages will act in the same way,
    so becoming prevedibling and boring.
