Edit: Actually so far so good. I got rid of everything humanly possible. It wouldn't let me drop my gold, so I bought daggers (then dropped them). I even dropped my rations and jerkin. So, I started with a completely empty money pouch, no armor, no food, and a single dagger as my only item.
I haven't beat it yet, but I'm surviving quite well. I'm getting money back, killing stuff, progressing in the game. Sure it takes longer, but not that difficult really if you know what you're doing.

Only thing I may end up doing is possibly using a cheat to 'swap' out a dagger for the starter sword, since there's no (to my recollection) actual way of getting a sword as a non-Figher in QFG1. As much as I hate cheating in the series, (unless it's to get a certain screenshot, in which case, I'm not actually 'playing' the games, just using the console cheats to get what I need) I wouldn't consider this that much of cheat more as a 'edit' to starting gear.

In that sense, I suppose even a pure magic user could fulfill the qualifications to become a "battle mage", though I suppose you mean giving the magic user parry
For a more dramatic difference, though, I tend to prefer fighters with magic use. Especially starting with the second game, as you learn Zap, which lets you get a stronger hit at the beginning of each battle.
Though I have to say, giving a Thief magic user, starting at the second game, is actually really handy. And there's even a game over message that's only available to burglars with Fetch XD in the second game, I mean.
Or perhaps give Throwing to the Magic User, for zapping a throwing dagger. Works out well in the fifth game, I understand.

It's definitely the hybrid class (any hybrid class, I think) that's easiest to play.
