TACTICS

Before Combat The wizard casts mage armor from her wand.

During Combat The wizard prefers to prank others rather than cause deliberate harm. She casts greater invisibility, then harasses and annoys her targets with glitterdust, grease, major image, persistent image, and solid fog. If attacked with lethal force, she retaliates with cloudkill, empowered scorching ray, and magic missile.

DESCRIPTION

These irreverent illusionists are the bane of humorless adventurers. Their tricks are sometimes mistaken for enemy attacks, and even in dangerous situations, their own amusement comes first.
