Uhm, but while we are here... what levels are the sample characters at? What's the highest starting character level?
For the RtR adventures, the pre-gens are usually divided evenly between 1st, 3rd, and 5th level. Let me check Dark Mage real quick...
...OK, it appears that Dark Mage is somewhat of an oddball (probably because it isn't actually one of the RtRs, I would guess) with levels all over the place between 1st and 5th.
