Banning Conjuration is the next thing to criminal incompetence in a party's primary arcane spellcaster, considering that its the most versatile and arguably the most powerful school.

*shrug* Given that this is a roughly core-only world, it's a bit more defensible. If memory serves, though, s/he's an evoker, which, well...is less defensible.

Excuse me? What's wrong with evokers? Honestly, if banning conjuration is the next thing to criminal incompetence, banning evocation ACTUALLY IS criminal incompetence.

Oh, and if V picked banned schools before Teleport changed from transmutation to conjuration, this happened LONG before any of the orb spells and the like came out. Back then it was probably just summoning monsters.

banning evocation is easily survivable, since there's plenty of good attack spells in other schools (wide area necromancy, conjuration elemental bursts, transmutational fort-save dmg spells); the biggest loss is actually Wall of Force and Contingency. Usually if you ban a school, you ban either evocation or necromancy...
conjuration on the other hand has area-control, a few blasting, teleportation (used not to apparently), summoning/creation, SR-penetrators, etc etc. It's probably the most versatile school other than illusion (although it's got a pretty hard match against transmutation's mass array of buffs and utility spells).

Abjuration is the other school I would never ever drop. Dispel Magic is just too important to not have.

Also, unless you're Jens, monster HP increases too fast for blasting to be efficient. The most efficient wizards are ones that don't do direct damage, like battlefield control conjurers and high-DC necromancers and transmuters. The tanks don't have to expend resources nearly as much, especially with Tome of Battle in play, so control the battlefield and hobble your enemies while they do the grunt work.

That's funny. I think Belkar just gave Kikil a sampling of his REAL rap sheet.

Well, the good news is, they found the Draketooth clan. The bad news is all the ones they've met so far are dead. And from the looks of it, have been for a while now.

Oh, only about two weeks. No wonder they're called the Draketooth clan...V should be having some (more) fun times ahead.

Something just occurred to me.

If the Draketooths (Draketeeth?) have all been dead for weeks, and V cast the spell that killed them long before setting foot on the Western Continent...

...then whose scrying sensor is this? http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0698.html

Based on the color, the Oracle is my guess.
