1) Shianti Wizard... I think most of us want to see this
I'm repeating myself but such a class would be ridiculous. You can not be Grey Star. Of course if you want to do it yourself in your own campaign settings, that's fine but such a class in an official LW book would not make any sense. Beside this, Mongoose August has explained why, if you want to play a Shianti-like wizard, the magicians of Dessi are here for this.
I've edited my response about a dozen times here, so I think I'll simply state that Agust did in fact state here on these very boards that IF he is tapped for a "magic of Magnamund" type book, then he WILL include the Shianti... (i'd post a link to it, but I cant find it now!!! Tell me I'm not crazy!!!)
My other point - nothing is 'ridiculous' in any RPG unless the entire group feels that way. If my game group wants LW to be a Noodnic, then by all that is holy, my players will have what they want. Ridiculous, you say? Maybe for you. But one man's opinion of trash... well, that's one statement I don't think I have to repreat.
Sorry if this came across harsh - it was not meant to be that way. It's nothing personal, and it might not be something for you, but a fair number of us would like to see Shianti in a book in the near future. It's no more ridiculous than a RPG called "Kobolds Ate My Baby"...
I'll shut up now, I'm starting to ramble away from my point....
