NPC Question...

Hi, I'm new to the group.

Have a quick NPC question; no rules, more opinion and personal preference. I'm starting a D&D3 campaign in a small, shanty village that used to be a decent port. It's been abandoned for the much larger city up the coast.

Anyway, one of the NPCs is called "Lucky Left" - he's a bum that lives essentially under the boardwalks that make up the "roads" of this little shanty town. He's called Lucky Left because his right leg was lost at the knee and is now a peg-leg - He's lucky to have his left leg, get it?

Moving on, he's going to be a good source of information for the PCs because no one pays too much attention to him and he gets to hear lots of good info. He should be generally pitiful.

All that said, what race should I make Lucky Left? I was initially thinking human, but I'm wondering if maybe half-orc wouldn't be better, or maybe even halfling?


Undead Campaign?

I bought Libris Mortis last week and am beginning to develop some ideas for an undead campaign I plan to run early next year. Still debating on whether to set the PCs up as the good guys or the bad guys, though. Anyone here ever run, or play in, an undead campaign? What worked? What didn't?

Top Ten of Level 1

I'm starting a new character at level 1 and I've chosen a wizard. He rolled an 18 for Int (lucky, I swear) and he's using a feat from Complete Arcane called Wizardly Training, I think. It allows the character to get double the spells in his spellbook, i.e. 6+int bonus at 1st level and 4 every level afterwards. My question is, having 10 spells at level one, which are the top ten level 1 wizard spells out there? I mean in official WotC 3e and 3.5 books, that haven't been nerfed or are borken to pieces. What do you think are the ten most essential?

Also, I think I want to make my level 1 feat Spellf Focus, so given this list, what school should I choose?
