Where does it say that Malark is a high level archmage?

As much as I love Artemis, he's pretty outclassed by the rest of the list. >_>

I'll go with Jarlaxle. He's always able to procure the right tool or weapon for whatever needs to be done.

Perhaps I miswrote it. but to have any levels in archmage(And be considered an archmage) you need to be able to cast level 7 spells or better, and usually falls into quite a few levels of Wizard. Most pure wizards only get access to Archmage prestige levels around level 14-16.

Might be different with multiclass in 4e, but I had assumed to gain any archmage levels and be a Zulkir, Malark would have to have spent a lot of that 100 years studying pure wizardry with Szass Tam

Riven is the God Mask now, so no and Fzoul was somekind of demigod in 4e so its no contest.

And after all of them fail, Malik is hired and accidently stumbles over some boots that one of Fzouls servants didn't put properly away and triggers some weird chain reaction that ends with Fzoul breaking his neck :)

Jarlaxle has the style, but style alone won't do I'm afraid.
I'm with Erevis Cale therefore.

He is no less famous than Ayrik, son of Korth, known as "Stormblood" to his enemies.

Surely ye've heard of these magnificently illustrious heroes, Wooly?

Oh, I've heard of Ayrik... I shan't tell you everything I've heard, but I've heard of him.

Seriously, I get the concept of beer goggles, but a flumph?

Ah, but the Ill Omen part doesn't mean I bear bad news -- just that bad news has been known to follow in my wake.

Try it, but only if ye be a man of valor! For the hamster is a creature so foul, so cruel, that no man yet has fought with him... and lived! BONES of full fifty men lie *strewn* about his lair! So, brave bounty hunter! If you do doubt your courage or your strength, come no further, for death awaits you with nasty, big, pointy teeth...
