    You wouldn't be able to have any combat promotions, though, so you'd be really squishy.

    Death, Force, Dimensional. I could escape death from natural causes by becoming a lich and use force to crush my enemies and use dimensional when they were too strong. also, being able to teleport all over the place would be flipping awesome

    I would certainly choose Mind but also Chaos and Life would be really interesting to study or use...

    Seems like everyone likes the idea of messing with people's heads.

    What about Mind? With creation, nature and mind, surely you could conjure up your nickname;)

    Dimensional: Having a last minute escape route is always a good idea.
    Fire: Flinging Fireballs is a blast.
    Death: Why die when you can become an immortal Lich?

    I would hide behind my awesome summons in an evil fort where i then control the minds of every bypassers and build an own army and then take the world hostage.

    If I were a mage, I'd like to be a professional terraformer. Give me nature and water. If I had time for further study, I'd add life (for cure disease) and fire.

    Not if you have flooded the whole area around it with water and there it is zombies and drowns right from the evil castles basement and then i have used my sun magic to dry a desert and then make a wall of cactus with nature. before that i have made ice and tundra and there i made a mountain wall with creation. Over the mountain i have a patrol of air elementals. And its windy up there. It is wolfs there too. Before that its an awesome forest. And the fort itself is cut from a huge mountain and enchanted. If a assassin is so awesome he gets to my castle alive, i would sit on my throne, surrounded with skeletons and summons and a huge eye over it. Then i would greet him and convert his mind so he would kill his sender.

    Well, I'm limiting myself to three spheres because that seems reasonable and common.

    Metamagic: Because if you're going to learn magic, you might as well learn magic, you know what I'm saying?

    Creation: I did not pick this, although I wanted to, because I think Creation and Entropy are just too damn good. Call them "fourth" spheres you spend a long time getting to, and certainly not ever mastering. I'd pick Creation over Entropy 'cause that's how I'd roll.

    Force: This is telekinesis, right? If it isn't, I'll go with Air, but if it is...TK is the catchall of special powers. You can fly, enhance your attacks with raw force, even TK control your opponents by physically manipulating their bodies. Force owns.

    Enchantment: Magic swords, loyal golems, sex appeal...definitely an awesome sphere.

    Mind, Body, and Spirit would make a cool trio.
    So would Nature, Life, and Death. Mmmm. I'd keep my hand in Death just enough for skellies, because every badass needs an undead army.

    Well then I'll appear and point out the fact that I specifically said not to choose every sphere, which will cause you to cease to exist.

    Nature, Shadow and Dimensional.
    Nature because I like the idea of being able to summon and create things that would help me in any environment.
    Shadow because I want to be able to fade out history now and then.
    dimensional because i want to be able to escape.

    (as you can probably see, my favorite civ is the Sidar, religion is the Council of Esus, and unit is Chanter (amurite only though :(!)
