EDIT: Found it on the old Brilliant Gameologists board. Eidetic Spellcaster in Dragon 357. The original reason I couldn't find it is because it's not listed under the wizard alternate class feature section for some reason, but is listed under the Dragon 357 section.
So, a few years back a fellow player informed me that he was playing a drow wizard in the underdark. Because their DM decided that paper was fairly rare, and therefore he wouldn't have access to a spell book, he had to use an alternate wizard class feature that his DM found in a Dragon magazine issue. This replaced both Scribe Scroll and the ability to obtain a familiar, but he memorized spells directly to his brain instead of having to write them down. Does anyone know what this is called and what issue it's in? I thought it was Intuitive Wizardry, but my Google-Fu has failed me, and I can't find any site with Alternate Class features that lists that specific one.
