Why I chose to be Pirogoeth
Pirogoeth is a wizard who started out as a fighter so she could kick some butt too. At the end of the first campaign (my first campaign ever), she ended up with a ton of awesome treasure, including a Staff of the Magi and Robes of the Archmagi. I figured, why not go for it and cosplay her!
