What I hate about D&D....

It's a fantasy game, set in your standard magic fantasy world. But low-level mages are so under-powered as to be absolutely fucking useless. And damage reduction is bullshit. Now relinquishing the soapbox. (tough going in Icewind Dale today)

DR is great if you're the one that has it. And I'll agree with you about mages being weak. Thats why you put their second-highest ability roll in CON. And then bulk up with cure potions and such.

Or put it in Dex and ALWAYS have Mage Armour cast. And stand in the back.

Yeah early levels as a wizard means finding lots of isolated goblins and sniping them off with magic missile and then resting to get spells back nigh constantly until level 5 or so when you get some more potent firepower and hit points...
