I think the only setting I hate more is Forgotten Realms. Bloody Elminster ruining everything for everybody... :P
...I love the Realms. >.>
DB3, you're the one who got me into this mess in the first place, and all I have to say to that is thank you! There have been times when my enthusiasm has flagged, and every time you've reminded me why I got into this in the first place. Basically you inspire me. You're like my muse or something. ;)
I clearly need more compliments like this, because I'm definitely caught off guard here.

Now I kind of feel bad about my prolonged absence. Being honest, I've been back home for four days now, and I still have been busy at work running games at VBS, but I should be making time for the game too.
Magic, being busy at work isn't the same as vanishing from the game. If anyone should feel badly about not keeping up with the game it's me.
Immunity to mind effects is actually pretty common. That shuts down just about everything a Mesmerist can do, including the stare(unless they spend a resource to pick up that talent, and even that is somewhat limited). I don't think they're overpowered, just easy to optimize for casting.
If you want a really strong enchantment user, then kitsune Fey bloodline Sorcerer is the way to go. DC for any enchantment spell they cast is 10 + spell level, + Cha +2 + 1/2 sorcerer level. By level 20 that's DC 30-ish first level spells(assuming they managed a 30 charisma. It is level 20 after all).
I say let them do it. If you're that worried, maybe word's getting around and a wizard is getting paid to cast hardening by paranoid people.
There's nothing as painful as a player as finding a new, clever way of doing things, to succeed a few times and then the GM says 'Now you've had your fun a few times, you can never do this again, because balance'
That's if you even get to do it! I still need go go back and kill Longtooth off by having a halfling druid turning into a elephant above him and crushing him beneath! Who introduces apogee rules based on a vague description of "flying over the dragon" so it can survive?
That's both terrible and against tradition. Gonna see lots of complaints about destructive nerfs in a couple years. :/
