Just a joke thread!

If you´re a JRR fan, White Wizards are best.
If you prefer Raymond E, Black Wizards are best ( Especially Marcos ) although Pug ( magician of two worlds ) was more powerful in the end.
Or Donaldson, when a leper with with a white gold ring was the most powerful?

Mine is Pug ( Although I´m currently white )

Sorry, all of the above were very masculine.
If I was not a male, perhaps, Morgaine ( CJ Cherryh ) or Kerisa Minette ( Robert E Vardeman )

Like to be PC!

I thought that in JRRTland that grey was the colour. Gandalf the Grey, after all, was the goodie and Saruman the White was the baddie.

Don´t like to correct the gods too much ( I am lying when I said that )! But Gandalf died in the battle in the halls of the dwarfs and was re-born as Gandalf the white, hence he was able to break Saruman´s staff. Although, I could be wrong

Yep, should have remembered that! Was thinking older when I set the thread, possibly because I am older!

Be careful. Human sacrifice has only recently been stopped! :D

Did he actually die though? Nah, just messin'. Prior to that he WAS known as the Grey though. Actually, I realise that I don't remember enough about this particular incident to argue too deeply. However, see following quote and response...

And I think there was a green wizard as well?

Doesn't this all mean that the colour is actually irrelevant and we shouldn't make assumptions based on colour anyway?
