Being a sorcerer means you don't have much contact with your peers,
but you're never really alone. And you have instant knowledge: fluent
in half a dozen languages, lifetimes of experience and knowledge
available, different careers, different places. You can blow up seagulls.
You can do all sorts of incredible things, help people in so many ways,
learn so much. It's a fascinating, if challenging, life.

I was rereading Penric's Fox today, and there's this passage: "The
Fellowship being part school, part farm, part a community of historical
scholarship, and part, these days, hospice for injured or sick creatures."
Plus you get great friends, choir practice, and a huge library. And a
permanent pet, extra senses, and access to a different plane.

So, given a choice, which would you be: sorcerer or shaman?
