This may have been done before; I have no idea, but it'd be interesting to see what the results are. What type of class do you prefer playing? Fighter, Ranger, Thief, Cleric/Priest, Barbarian, Assassin, Wizard... and why?

For me, believe it or not, it has to be the thief. I love thieves. They're the most versatile of the roles, depending on the game being played. You can get by with so much with them. I also believe in the concept of a "good" thief; one that does try to do good deeds overall even while doing some bad ones as well. Some people would not agree with that. I personally think the "alignment" thing has been way overdone (another Gygaxian construct that would well be dispensed with, along with color-coded dragons and other such ridiculosities). My favorite character so far is a little rogue with necrophobia so bad he faints if he but sees a skeleton. It's hilarious! Everyone else is having to bail him out...but he's invaluable when it comes to traps and locks.

So, what are your favorite classes to play, and why?

Also Thief for me ! Especially for the roleplaying aspects : I am a very honest and caring person in RL, so I enjoy the lack of morality of the thief, and his activities, entering other people's houses without being invited, spying and stealing, and a good healthy selfishness.

I LIKE the Bard best. Bardsong VERY handy, plus Wizard spells. Weapons skill are not too bad, esp Ranged weapons, and useful special skills.
HOWEVER, I most often play a Cleric, either straight or multi or dual, 'cos I'm a bit of a 'safety first' person - I go in for a lot of melee fighting so clerics are essential!

Wizards & Warriors, Fljotsdale. The "necrophobia" thing seems to have just occurred, since he never can strike a hit against a skeleton, LOL! It's become a running joke on our forum (and in my storyline).

Paladin! Part Fighter, part Cleric, with extra healing power! Wahey! I've always liked leading from the front, and to me the Paladin is the quintessential Leader figure.

i must say that i prefer a LE Fighter/mage. im a man of my word and i obey laws, but if a law benefits me but hurts someone else, too damn bad! also, i talk like a mage and act like a fighter, so its my natural role!

Hm. Sounds interesting. How old is the game and is it still available? (no good if multiplayer, though)

The game is still quite available, Fljotsdale. The Collector Edition is out now, selling for $20 (which would probably be about 30 lb British (sorry, I don't know how to do the pound symbol on the Internet). Wizards & Warriors is much like Might and Magic, Wizardry, Daggerfall, and some of the other 1st-person view games. There's no multiplayer, though, and I'm not sure from your post whether you were seeking that in a game or not...

If you are interested, check out our Wizards & Warriors forum here. There's some topics floating around on the front page of the forum about "Should I buy this game"? if you're interested in information about it without anything getting "spoiled".
