I take it you mean Par-Salian the dragonlance archmage of the white/gray (never can remember which) order, not Par-Salin?

No relevance for me of course, Raistlin will always be the mage with the most flesh to his character (if not his bones :roll: )

Merlin! Best portrayed in the 1981 film Exalibur. I think he only casts 2 spells in the whole thing, and one of those is a cantrip ;) But for a wonderful character with a cool silver skull cap - he gets my vote.

PS: Excalibur is one of my most favourite films ever :) you must see it, some great lines in there.

But if only he had have cast a fireball at Morgana as he was leaving the castle with baby Arthur he would have saved himself a lot of bother later on!

Fffffuuuuummmmmmmmmm!

Definitely! One of my favourite performance in film history.

A favourite of mine - I think he's called Rincewind in the english versions.

I just can't resist a wizard that depends on his luggage to survive instead of his spells. :lol:
What spells by the way? I don't think he has ever cast one.

Merlin rules alright. So many great lines in that film, including the all time classic...

Or (as Arthur rests at the henge before heading into the final battle)...

Arthur: "Merlin! Merlin, is that really you ... are you a dream?"

Merline: "A dream to some... a nightmare to others!"

he knew only one. Well, sort of. It hogged his brain.

Rincewind is the most unmagical wizard (wizzzard) there is.

/me loves Rincewind.

How was the famous saying ?

Rincewind gets my vote as well, even though he can't even spell wizard. :)
So much fun,
