Wherein your humble scribe presents what might be an Adventuring Party for Labyrinth Lord/Advanced Edition Companion. Inspiration was drawn from Lord Kilgore’s Five Color Magic post, B/X Blackrazor’s B/X Headgear post and the suggestion in Swords & Wizardry that the Elf class might be used for some other kind of ancient, arcane beings.
So here are the Color Wizards of Ghuzzar – done up as LL Core “Elves.” They don’t have the infravision and other elf abilities, though. They’re really just fighter/magic-users without the multi-classing bit. Enjoy them for their weirdness.
They are listed with their currently (and most commonly) memorized spells and their primary equipment. It is safe to assume that they have access to many more spells and much more gold and equipment, both mundane and magical.
