I mostly agree with you about HT mage. But bad stealth for a mage largely cancels out the benefits from guaranteed regen.

I'm currently trying my first shot at a kobold mage. Might be a bit of a challenge combination, but so far doesn't seem too bad. A bit fragile, even for a mage.

Kobolds are stealthy and that can be utilized to the fullest by mages. I dont know whether I would call them better or worse than half trolls at maging; I think the advantages and disadvantages mostly balance out. Bad mages are orcs and dwarves, everyone else has something to bring to the table - even humans when xp penalties apply.

I agree but they are probably not the best choice for someone first learning to play a mage.
