...I like playing the mage. I like being the quiet one in the middle of the party that choses exploding things over swinging sharp sticks. The ranger is still my favorite class, but mage is a close second.
The downside is I'm playing a 10th level mage in a playtest game who has access to things like fireball and lightning bolt spells. If I ever get the chance to play a Mage from first level, it will be a challenge keeping her alive. As it is, this one is down to 4hp after receiving bites from two giant centipedes.
Tonight is round two of the Origins playtest. I'm looking forward to getting a few of those hit points back. Or dying in a fire. I have a lot of fire spells...
Krystal looks forward to sleeping on Jamie's backpack.
