I have released Jac from my servitude. I see that I too suffered from his hubris and lust for power. I will move on and concentrate my energies on MY magic.
Looking at Archmage now, the best defensive specialization is abjuration, with shield, resist, protection and stoneskin available. The best offensive line is evocation with magic missile, gust, chain missile, and fireshield. Each of those takes 5 AP in the tree, so they are a loooong way away. I'll take the first level and then Energy to get 60 sp back. I hope to have human done by game time and see what Tuk thinks.
Tuk thinks "SLA IS TOO OP, CAN'T HAVE!!". Should have remembered that from last year.
