Mage killers? I wonder if they target clerics, too.

Honestly they're not that much squishier, 1 hp per level extra will not save you from anything besides a mouse or house cat.

No, but 8 might.
Not that everyone's always rolling max on their hit dice, but even a Ranger or Cleric have a range of 1-8 hp per level before CON mods versus the wizard's 1-4, and it all adds up.
Though when your wizard is a Dwarf with maximum Constitution, all bets are off.

Also depends on what system you use. 1-4 and 1-6 are a lot more different then most realize even if it seems insignificant.

1d6+3 comes out VERY close to 1d10+1

"Mage Killer?"
I've never once heard of this class. Does it go under a different name, and could any of you kindly point me to the game and book that it is found in? If it's in D&D, even better for me. I've only got a handful of that one and Scion right now in my slowly growing collection.

Phaedrus knows something. I'm scared, but I'm also very, very interested.

Look at the strip title. My guess is an organization dedicated to killing arcane casters.

""I failed my Knowledge (History) check" "I didnt. does that mean i know more than you?"
Want to start off by saying I just started reading the comic, and am loving it so far. Keep up the good work!

So in response to the quote in the title: not nessessarily. In pathfinder there are skills that are "Trained only". While you can use these skills untrained, you cannot pass a check with a DC higher than 10 without propped training. THis is to reflect the simple tasks that anyone can do (like handle animal to pet a tame, friendly dog) or common knowledge. The Knowledges are all "trained only skill" of those skills. The fact that he had to ask before rolling means that it is not common knowledge, thus the DC is higher than 10. Thus he cannot pass (unless he put a rank into Knowledge (history), but knowing the character he probably didn't)
