Ah yes... Stormwind Fallacy, the two holy words invoked by people accused of being munchkins because they optimize in self defense against elitist asshats that use broad brush terms to make themsleves feel like the superior members of a hobby.

FTFY

No...

Unrelated.

Ezekiel 25:17 is kinda what Jules says to Brad in Pulp Fiction before he shoots him.

Ezekiel 25:17

I think that would be some cold-blooded sh*t to say to somebody before you busted some steel in his a$$.

I prefer rolling, becasue I like a player's luck or unluck being a factor.

Conversely, I also have absolutely no problem using point buy.

It's more important to me that the story or campaign idea the GM has will be fun.

I'm curious as to what this monster item is...

Mob Rules, by Sabbath..

Kick ass.

I'm building a space campaign based on the Veteran of a 1000 Psychic Wars song by Blue Oyster Cult, that I heard in HM.

Great source of inspiration, that movie is.

So, semantics?

Follow the logic:

There are better options on purpose, or by design. This is to reward system mastery.
This heavily implies that due to a lack of system mastery, you may choose a less-than optimal option. Or, if you take it a step further, if you choose a less optimal choice due to a lack of system mastery, you have fallen into a "trap", by design.

In other words:

If you don't know any better, building a fighter and taking toughness? That is in fact a trap that you've fallen into from a lack of system mastery. And that's by design.

Again:

Are there some circumstances where it's not a bad idea? Of course.
But system mastery tells you this.
Understanding the mechanical benefit of a feat (or other option), and why or why not it's a good option in each circumstance = system mastery.

Cook said this is all by design. Cook said this was “not entirely a good idea”.

It's not a stretch to then assume Cook thinks that was probably bad design. It certainly isn't if you read that article.

Monte Cook wrote:
Magic also has a concept of "Timmy cards." These are cards that look cool, but aren't actually that great in the game. The purpose of such cards is to reward people for really mastering the game, and making players feel smart when they've figured out that one card is better than the other. While D&D doesn't exactly do that, it is true that certain game choices are deliberately better than others.

Hard to take this out of context.

Yay! A new fallacy...

The Ivory Tower Fallacy

That if you link or quote from Monte Cook's article, you are completely misrepresenting the essay's entire point.

EDIT: Bolded the appropriate word for emphasis.

I'd say if a person playing a character witha low cha spends skill points to raise his diplomacy, bluf and or intimidate, than he's playing within the rules. The character has obviously recognized he had a deficiency interacting with people, and learned from others how to compensate. Further penalizing a character beyond that isn't necessary, imho.

True. Richard Gere might get mad if this lady tries to claim to be the first.

Although...I don't think he ever actually married that gerbil...

Also, to the above discussion with Sissyl...

"The most important rule: Don't be a jerk. We want our messageboards
to be a fun and friendly place."

I think this alludes to not having to face an inquisition when you state your opinion.

Ugh. I read that article. It depends on the ignorance of non-gamers to portray him in a negative light. It's the worst kind of journalism, if it even qualifies as such.

It amazes me that after ever major FAQ or errata that has come out recently, there has been a major crapstorm on the boards about them:
Monk flurry of blows revision.
THF with armor spikes.
Crane style.

Yet, still, it's expected that considering and answering a FAQ should only take a few minutes.

Amazing.
