When I first started learning about fantasy role playing, the one class that really grabbed my attention was the wizard. With secret words from some ancient language, a few waves of their hands and the right combination of mysterious components, a wizard could take down the mightiest of foes. Even more intriguing was the prospect of embracing one school of magic and unearthing its secrets. It helped me better create the character I had envisioned, seperating him from the average run of the mill wizard. Instead of plain ol\' Vladimir the magic-user, I could become Vladimir the Undying, the necromancer who could animate the lifeless bones of the fallen to do his bidding. Whether it\'s the enchanter lulling their opponent into a slumber or the conjurer summoning a creature to come to their aid, specialist wizards can add a little variety to your game.
