(TFT) Would an IQ 35 wizard be bad? More on Wishes.
The main thing is that no PC of mine has ever got near to a 35 IQ, or
even a 30 IQ.
I do not like how wishes can be produced for no risk at high IQ and
no one else would dare to risk it at all. I've been GMing TFT since
1980, and NOT ONCE has a PC tried to get a wish from a demon.
The new rules, make getting wishes possible (but risky) at IQ 21 or
so, but at no IQ are wishes no risk. I feel that the rules are clearly
superior to the ones in cannon TFT, unless you prefer a campaign
with no wishes at all. (Which is basically the way I found my
campaign worked once I thought about the economics of wishes
using the standard rules.)
Warm regards, Rick.
