Just a quick qestion... what is a gish?

Originally it was a Githyanki Fighter/Mage if i am not mistaking.
Today the term is used as any arcane user that is also a fighter (or any melee-class).
Some people use it more generally and include divine caster/fighters.

To elaborate more, a gish is a githyanki fighter/mage or thief/mage, though the modern usage of the term is mostly used for fighter/mages of any race.

Ok thanks, i'd been hearing the term and never knew what it meant.
