The old description:
"Sitting around a camp fire, my friends and I talked about wizards. Wizards, if they were real, would be the worst people. Dabbling in all sorts of grim abominations for dubious ends. They'd be the last people you'd ever hire for a quest, and then only in utter desperation."
I could easily imagine the mayhem caused by a wizard, I mean imagine some Friday night a mage toddles off down the Pub and after 5 Jagermiesters, 3 whiskeys, 6 pints of guinness beer and a trip to the curry house........ooh
Man, I wish I had the context on this dude.
Honestly I figure this is what a powergamer looks like in-universe. Everything's done to maximize plusses, and anything that doesn't is irrelevant.
Wonder what kind of boost he's getting from the penguin/puffin boots?
"He is vomiting glowing blood after eating a baby chipmunk, I refuse to let him heal me!"
Mage: "to be fair, the chipmunk barely even helped my spell. I don't think I even had to eat it."
