I am still trying to figure out how that feat is "hack&slash". You could play an entire session with no combat at all, and it could still be used.
Also, it's a feat. Taking a feat, and not getting mechanics from it.. would make it a pointless feat. So, unless all of the hardcore storybook "role-players" forsake taking feats, then complaining about new feats is also pointless.
But then, maybe my 25+ years of gaming has also made me realize that taking games so seriously is the most pointless thing of the bunch. Maybe I am jaded by living 8 miles from Glacier National Park, and spending most of my time outdoors in the most beautiful place on the planet.
Or not, because I'm not elitist. (Just pointing out how pointless being elitist is. There is always someone else that thinks that what you are being elite about is nothing special.))
Scott... you are much much drunker than you think. I am sick of trying to point out to you that I didn't say what you claim I said.
How about I end it with. You win. Whatever you say. Whatever argument you want me to have, I'll take it just so you can prove me wrong.
As I said. Enjoy your time with your girlfriend. Enjoy the Sake. I have mead, myself... just opened it now.
Also, I should point out using bear spray in a school would be the height of irresponsibility. You could kill children with it.
80 percent of Montanans own at least 1 gun. 80 percent of them own more than 2 guns. 80 percent of them own more than 3 guns. Democrats, Republicans, Libertarians....
Kids here train with guns all the time.
There has never been a mass killing here. There has never been a school shooting here. The violent crime rate is lower than most states with massive gun restrictions.
If guns kill people, my own are defective.
Isn't that just an armadillo whose head detaches from it's body every night to feed?

You would hate where I live. We have wolves, black bears, grizzly bears, coyotes, mountain lions, bobcats, lynx, wolverines.... I live 8 miles outside of Glacier National Park in NW Montana. I also live in the Flathead National Forest, and have no city lights anywhere nearby.
The only animal I dread running into is moose. Unfortunately, I live on the Flathead River....
I do miss the alligators back in Florida, but I love it here.
This...looks...epic! I knew the Clockwork magic thing was going to be cool, but SHADOW MAGIC, Paladin options, AND a playable undead-type race!? If only there was a print version coming out!
Not just playable undead race, but two bloodlines descended from undead (Ghoul and Vampire).
Dhampir Vampiric Sorcerer is full of win!
Yeah, my first thought is they don't look much like plants. It gives them a bit of a creepy quality.
Or, the coconut can be carried by swallows!
Can't forget being stuck in a maze with a minotaur... and roach people.. ;)
I'm an American Paleoconservative. I like sex in my games... but then, I am also an Odinist... and we tend to view things like that as natural.
That said, I am not interested in reading a gaming book, that is written by some average joe, on the subject. I already know everything I want to about sex.... reading a game designer's take on it does not sound like a fun thing to do.
I don't really see archetype bloat. I see options for those that want them. One person may not have a use for something, but someone out there will.
If they stopped doing archetypes because people claimed there were too many, then some of the ones I am interested in in ARG would not be there.

My next door neighbor's llama had a baby. Because they are everywhere in Montana, nobody buys them anymore.. so I may be getting it for free.
I may actually get some barding made for it.
Dwarves are my normal go-to. In this, they are still awesomesauce.
However, Half-Orcs snuck up to awesomesauce, too.
I also like the Gnomes much better now, too.
Tengu, Oreads and Orcs... oh my!
All three came out of nowhere to punch me with win. Oreads were my surprise winners.
Ratfolk, Catfolk, Goblins and Kobolds I also like. Tieflings also if you add Blood of Fiends, and I hope Blood of Night and Blood of Angels does the same.
Gripplis won this one, but Strix and Duergar are close behind.

Seriously? Why does there have to be one person in every group that has to scream 'That's racist!'? That gets old.
It is a mythological PC race based on shadow puppets. It does not represent real life Asians in the slightest. BTW, unless I am mistaken, Asians tend to find being called 'Oriental' offensive.
Can't we just have one preview without these really stupid complaints?
Me? I love the look of the Grippli. The Wayang, not-so-much.. but that is just because of that mustache...
The Ifrit looks bland.
None of the pictures are bad. The art is top notch as usual.. just other than the Treefrog.. these aren't my favorites. Still, they are great artists.
