Two points:

1) Which game are you referring to?

2) Rentar is FEmale.

--------------------
I tried to think of something witty to put here.

Needless to say, I failed.

Okay... so, if you're playing A2, don't kill Rentar because it might screw up your game.

If you're playing A3, just wait and odds are you'll get to her eventually.

But basically, if you actually want to kill her, play A4.

If you're playing A3 you can beat Rentar-Ihrno eventually but there's really no reason to do so unless you want bragging rights.

Erika is cursed to die if she ever sees the light of day. I wonder if she ever went top side during the night?

Maybe she developed a sort of "Aura of Darkness" spell for emergencies.

Awful, Small Fry. You are the ultimate embodiment of the Anti-Spidweb.

Um, Rentar-Ihrno is FEMALE. And if you read the description, you would see that Erika was winning. Erika was just caught by surprise by the boulders falling from he ceiling.

Actually, she dies if the light of day touches her skin. In one of the games, she mentions teleporting books (among other things) from the surface. Unless she teleports things blindly, this can't be done without scrying first, which would've caused her to see the light of day; therefore, if merely seeing the light of day were fatal to her, then scrying the surface would've killed her.

In theory, she probably could've done it, but only on moonless nights, because moonlight is nothing more than reflected sunlight.

No, the opposite is true. Rentar was losing the duel with Erika--quite badly, as I recall--and only won because she caught Erika by surprise. Otherwise, Erika would've decimated her.

I tried to do that once, but I got tired of all the summoned monsters and doing very little damage when I attacked her.

Yeah. The one time I managed it, it took about fourty minutes. I can't remember if I left the SFX and sounds on, though...

Since Rentar is only one person, she really wasn't at risk of decimation. Obliteration, maybe.

—Alorael, who wonders why Erika apparently gave up on breaking her curse. As the most powerful mage in the world, apparently, she really should have been able to work out a way to return to the surface.

It's one of those riddles. Perhaps it was a curse she knew to be unfixable. Perhaps this was one of the reasons she was so pissed.

Or perhaps she claimed to have given up, but the room behind her throne that you can never enter is actually the laboratory where she still kept trying, and trying, and trying, for the past few decades.

Depressing.

And no, I did not have a crush on Erika back when I played it. She's over a century old anyway. :P

Technicalities don't mean much in fantasy worlds. Moonlight may only be reflected sunlight, but magic and curses usually consider it distinct - in the same way that Fire is an element.

Remember, it took several powerful mages to put that curse on her in the first place, so she might have needed some equally powerful mages to remove it (maybe she couldn't do anything herself?). Even in A3, there were more stronger spellcasters above the surface than below, so maybe she didn't have the necessary resources.

What about the Vahnatai? (I just know someone's going to ask me this.) Maybe they were either too preoccupied or indifferent to be much help.

It makes me wonder why Erika and Rentar didn't get along. They both seem to have pretty similar personalities, what with the disproportionate revenge complex and the general vibe of superiority that both give off.

I almost made the same post, but then I realized that Erika and Rentar wouldn't get along precisely because they're so similar. They're too independent and even self-centered. I imagine neither one would handle equals or superiors well at all. And Rentar is too much of a human-hater to get along with Erika, who can't even manage to get along with her fellow human beings.

—Alorael, who wonders what the world is like with its three premier spellcasters dead. Who gets to rise to the top without Rentar, Garzahd, and Erika around? Maybe some fresh blood?

And in his tower, Solberg is cackling madly.

Solberg is only a minor-major-mage(tm), in my opinion.

But, thinking on it, he is one of the few strong magi left. Erika, Rentar, Garzhad, Patrick, Linda and Aimee or all dead, or as good as, leaving X and Solberg pretty much undisputed.

Don't forget Rone.

I think it would be safe to say that, as of the end of A4, X is the most powerful mage extant -- given the seemingly frail states of Solberg and Rone.

There were a number of other second- and third-tier wizards in the earlier games, and it's not hard to imagine one or two of them growing in power and skill significantly. However, they all seem to have died (Mahdavi, Silverio), become demented (Thompson, Vidrain) or disappeared (Enla, Ostoth). The dragons disappeared as well. Pathass is still around, and potentially among the most powerful magic-users, but he isn't a mage.

My guess is that X will end up as the top mage.

X might have been the most powerful from day one. He's just too disconnected from reality to be much of a force for anything but anvils.

Aimee is still out there somewhere

—Alorael, who has high hopes for Kelner. A reasonably balanced, cautious archmage? It could happen!

He'll probably end up getting himself killed with that anvil spell.

And Aimee should return to the plot. With wherever she went, she should be able to bring back something interesting (and possibly set up a major plot arc).

Aimee Kilser would be a wonderful surprise -- although given my distaste for the direction the story has gone in post-1996, maybe not.

Kelner, I dunno. Kelner seems to have emulated Solberg's caution, but not his magical prowess. Solberg was powerful enough to be Erika and Garzahd's peer on the surface. He was a rare expert in an unusual and demanding field of magic (minddueling). Kelner was powerful enough to be an administrator for years... and years... and years. Yes, he was on the Triad, but he's the only Triad member we never saw ANY magic from. Even Seletine put a bundle of wands together. I mean, sheesh. Sorry excuse for a wizard, Kelner is.

Why does everyone like Aimee? She didn't even do much. The only reason I would want to see her again would be for closure (horrible death). Kelner is great, though. I like that we got to see him go from silent apprentice to the powerful wizard he is today.
