Re: (TFT) Would an IQ 35 wizard be bad? More on Wishes.

Hi Edmund,
  I my campaigns, I've several times had characters get up to 50 attributes.
A couple times a character or two reached 60 attributes.  Also, in base TFT,
an IQ 30 is not a good value for trying for wishes unless you have a +2
charm, and even then, I would rather have a couple more points.

  However, even the wizards spread out their attributes to have a decent DX,
and ST (or fatigue superscripts) to power the spells.  I think that highest any
PC in my campaigns was around 25 IQ.  (At 25 IQ they have about a 1/46,000
chance of getting a wish, about a 1/216 chance of only dying and a 99.5% 
chance of being burnt to ashes.

 Different GM's will have different rates that PC's go up.  But I've not run into
any campaigns where 30+ IQ characters were common. 

  Warm regards, Rick.
