In an upcoming campaign that starts at level 12 and that has PCs start with typical wealth for a PC of that level I'd like to play a wizard whose specialty is the various symbol spells. What classes and prestige classes, feats, traits, and magic items should my PC have to be a symbol-tossing wizard that's effective both economically (those symbol spells are pricey) and in combat?
- The campaign setting is the underdark of the Forgotten Realms.
- 20 point-buy for ability scores.
- Other PCs include a rogue specializing in the Intimidate skill, a lore warden fighter specializing in dirty tricks, a juju oracle specializing in necromancy, and an inquisitor specializing in archery. My PCs alignment isn't important for getting along with this group—they're all over the alignment map.
- Material from Dungeons and Dragons 3.5e is acceptable. Third-party Pathfinder material is also acceptable.
