Elf Magic User

Post by thewegger »

I just started a home game, introducing 4 new people to the hobby via S&W Core. While I was helping the other players with their characters, one of them decided that their Magic User would be an Elf, dismantling race-as-class just like that :lol: I didn't notice until we'd started playing, so I just rolled with it.

I'm guessing I should hit him with a level limit (8? 10?). I'm also considering a different XP progression, modifying the BECMI Elf Magic User in Threshold 10 to fit S&W.

How would you handle the situation?

I've always allowed Elves to be single-class MUs or FMs, with the 8/4 level limits, respectively. It seems like a simple enough house rule and keeps players happy.

Makes a lot of sense to me, thanks. I guess that's what we did at the table.
