Right, so the implementation here actually made sense
Having the same system for all classes carries a whole lot of different problems, as is evident in 4e. To a lesser extent, it is also why the ToB's variant spellcasting system didn't work for me.
So it's okay if a few "hadjis" die, but not if the victims are US citizens?
What'd you call that?
Yeah, I'd say you'd need a certain magical talent for ritual casting. A pure Fighter would have no, or at least only minimal access.
Because nothing says "freedom" quite like a government covertly assassinating people.
Fixed that for you. Saying anything else is hypocrisy.

I also remember indistinctly that he already wrote something about the class somewhere on the net.

I haven't taken a look into the book for ages, but from what I recall, the Gleaner is incredibly weak at low levels. The only boni he gets from his souls are for skills, and there is not much you can do with it. But as Parka wrote, the roleplaying opportunities are great. I think Keith Baker wrote the class; maybe you could ask him?
The first mistake while thinking about a D&D movie is thinking it should be a movie about D&D. It is a terrible idea to force a story about a group of RPG characters going on an adventure. It's been done in LotR and The Hobbit. Everything else will be seen as derivative.
I also think they should stay away from Salvatore's books, especially The Crystal Shard. No screenwriter will be able to salvage that mess (not that it will stop anyone to try).
I've got the same problem. My group's default setting is Eberron. So I'll have to either adapt the APs I own to the setting, or introduce them to a new setting plus making my own adjustments to it.

That doesn't make me like BBT, however.
If that's anything like "Watership Down", I don't want to have anything to do with it. That stuff gave me nightmares.
It can. It just shouldn't get a variant spellcasting system.
You mean this week? As in: Today?
I wouldn't go quite that far. There are far better shows on and on hiatus at the moment (Hannibal, Game of Thrones, Justified, The Walking Dead, Vikings, Red Widow, etc.). Even Grimm and Supernatural are better.
However, Arrow is quite fun. It shouldn't work, especially because of all the soapy bits, but it does.
Fire Moffat and cast Helen Mirren.

I really like* those people who do what a friend of mine once referred to as "island hopping": driving faster than everyone else, overtaking other vehicles and/or changing lanes into the smallest gap, only because they think they get a speed advantage by that.
Speeding in broad daylight within city limits is basically senseless. You have to stop at the next traffic light anyway.
*no, I don't
Probably some Northern Irish unionist who thought he was being clever.
Relevant musical interlude (with a tip of the hat to the Anklebiter).
The nordic trolls are NOT little imps in the caves. They were considered to be a different people, who looked much like humans, with the exception of certain physical traits, like having a tail. There is some confusion about one thing, mainly their size, since there are both remnants of giants and strange humans in their mythology. According to some tales, then, trolls were absolutely enormous and threw huge boulders (called "trollskott") against the churchbells which they did not like the sound of. This was an attempt to explain the presence of such boulders in the middle of a field or a forest, before science understood the effect of the inland glaciers of the last ice age. Other tales tell of children that act Differently, a la the changeling myths.
I had the impression that trolls could be of many sizes. My godmother brought a troll puppet with her from Norway once. It stands in her hallway, and is only about the size of a small halfling. Used to scare me witless when I was little.

Disclaimer first: I read these kind of thread for entertainment purposes (I have too much time on my hands, apparently), so I didn't want to get embroiled in the argument.
However, the claim of alienating "half the fan base" is pure BS. Take a step back and look at the two current threads dealing with caster/martial discrepancy, as well as some of the older ones. There are always the same few people arguing regularly there, with a few others sprinkled in between. The majority of the players - me included - just doesn't care about this issue. You are part of a very vocal minority. Claiming anything else is either major hyperbole or a matter of delusion.
In Germany, until recently, women left by their fiancé could demand damages for "sexual services rendered" if the couple used to live together.
If you cause a nuclear explosion, you can be fined, or be put into prison for up to 5 years.
And of course, in North Rhine-Westphalia, if a civil servant dies during an official journey, said journey ends.
It's not about gaining power, but about feeling powerful. People who want to feel powerful, and see violence as a means to achieve that feeling, obviously target those who they see as weakest, because it's easier to overpower them.

Golarion is an egg shell taped together around a nuclear explosion. It is also just one of countless worlds each god has interest invested in. So they may have bigger things to deal with than Golarion at this moment, and also don't want to accidentally wake up ol' grumpy Rovagug.
Or end like him.
@James Jacobs: Yeah, please don't publish rules for deities.

We haven't changed anything related to quoting recently. You might want to check the adjustment on your monitor or possibly a browser style sheet or other configuration on your end. (And for what it's worth, I'm pretty sure the quoting is specified as shades of grey, not blue, so your monitor might need calibrating anyway.)
You're right. I recently tried different screen settings, because mine were too dark. Thanks.
Is it just me, or did the background color of quoted text passages on the board change recently? First quotes are white. Only quotes of quotes are still in blue.
If it was changed globally, can we get back to how it was before? It is almost impossible to distinguish between quotes and original text. Or can we at least get an option to switch back?

I watched the movies?
Not really. The video assumes that Vader knew that Leia was his daughter from the beginning (which he doesn't), and that he owns a construction company (not impossible, but he strikes me as someone who would not be interested in stuff like that). Of course, getting facts wrong or making stuff up is standard modus operandi for conspiracy theorists.
