2)"Save or suck"/1) Save or die.This one. Oh man, this one. I will NEVER understand the community and their tears about this one!
So it's totally fair and okay for the Rage-Pouncing Barbarian to one-shot the enemy, but if a Wizard does it with waggly fingers the rules are somehow broken and unfair?
Oh please, such hypocrisy!
Yeah, but characters get Ablative Plot Plating (aka 'Hit Points') against being stabbed to death, but magic goes right through them, BECAUSE MAGIC.
My biggest problem with PF currently is the same as one of the problems with 3.5: "Nickel and Dime" game design - non-spellcaster classes, when they level up, generally get nickels (+1) or dimes (+2) to abilities they already had. Spellcasters, meanwhile, get whole new capabilities with every spell.
My second-biggest is "Realism": The toxic notion that because fighters can't cast spells, they shouldn't do anything superhuman except absorb (and deliver) physical abuse.
