Monkey Face is on a distinguished road
A little late to the party here, but in answer to your original question, High Elf and Gnome are probably the best classes for mage. High Elf starts with see invisible which is nice and can also start with more mana than most other classes. Biggest drawback is slow level up (as you noted).

Gnome has innate free action which can be very useful. I can't remember, but it might also be able to start with a 3rd mana point. It's penalty for leveling up is much less than the High Elf and probably worth the extra compared to a human. Biggest weakness is lack of strength. You need to be careful not to get slowed by carrying too much.
