If you just head on over to the Council Building, I'm sure you'll get properly oriented. Or you can hang with me here in the tavern and see what develops.

In 4th edition the wizard has something like 20 hp now at 1st level. Spells per day are also substantially different. Magic Missile can be cast at will now, for example, but it requires an attack roll to hit.

Oh, and I'm patronizing the tavern until further notice, but if it looks like there's a shortage of volunteers in line at the Council building, I might mosey over.
It wouldn't take a big hit from an orc for a first level wizard to go down. And wasn't 4 the max? Weren't they a d4?

Other than character generation, spells, and skills, there probably isn't too much difference, right? I am ok using the information like it is from 4th.

Let's run 4th. Frankly, except for a couple minor differences, I don't see a problem with any of them.
