So much fun to be had, the wizard gets out of line and you crush his orbs, and the look on the wizard's face when he fights the BBEG and realizes you made the switch. If the party and the wizard survive, you'll be able to look back on that moment and realize why the party kicked you out of the group. This list makes warforged seem like jerks.
