My go-to for Dragoon builds was the Warblade from 3.5's Tome of Battle. The Tiger Claw discipline had a lot of jumping-based maneuvers and Spear was one of its associated weapons. Combine that with the above-mentioned Leap Attack and Shock Trooper and you pretty much had the perfect Dragoon.

I haven't looked through Path of War's jumping-related maneuvers yet but that might also be a good place to start if you're not wanting to bring in 3.5 content.

New Pokemon announced!

For anyone here besides me who follows the series avidly =D

does this have all generations or just the most recent?

This is for Sun and Moon, the brand-new Generation 7, which will be released this November.

The only thing we know about it at all thus far is the three starters, the two legendaries near the end of the video (the sun lion and the moon hawk), and the name of the region and that it's heavily based on Hawaii.

Everything else is still up for speculation until the next release of info.

And by those younger players who've come to gaming from anime or other non-classic genres.

Yep, this is me. Techno-fantasy has been my thing since the start - it was video games that got me into gaming and fantasy rather than books, playing the heavily-tech-focused Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy VI was what got me into the fantasy/sci-fi genre in the first place, and is generally the sort of feel I prefer in my games; my group's homebrew world greatly reflects this, with a lot of steampunk and magitek influences and greater acknowledgements of the tech-versus-nature debates and places where the debate has been completely bypassed for a blending of the two from day one, and the comparisons between the two approaches.

In other news, I sometimes really hate my brother.

Because some people simply will not take "no" for an answer until they come to the conclusion personally, which they may never reach.

Yeah Scint is Catholic so it's reactionary for her.

Though she tells me that the wording has changed slightly in some recent years.

So last night I had what has to be one of the most surreal yet awesome experiences I've ever had in NWN.

My Dragonborn Paladin and ex-Blackguard of Tiamat finally traveled back home to see her birth family for the first time since her change of faiths, after a rather insistent invitation from her priestess mother and assassin brother that included a vague but pointed threat toward one of her closest friends' children. Upon arriving she was greeted in a semi-friendly manner by her father and sister and invited to dinner, but as soon as her mother showed up, the sniping began.

And for clarification, this is the 3.5 version of Dragonborn, where they're adopted children of Bahamut literally reborn in his image (the would-be petitioner actually builds a ceramic egg filled with incense and alchemical fluids and seals themselves inside for the metamorphosis) and sworn to fight on his side in his endless war against Tiamat, rather than simply a draconic-descended race of humanoids as they are in 4 and 5e.

So you have a devoted servant of Bahamut trading passive-aggressive barbs with a high-level cleric of Tiamat about how the former needs to come home and rejoin the clan and had so much potential, while their father/husband and sister/daughter are having a perfectly normal conversation about "where have you been", "heard you got married", "what would you like to drink", "does anyone wants some potatoes", "you haven't touched your asparagus" at the same time.

On the one hand, I wouldn't have met or have maintained contact with almost all of my friends without the Internet.

On the other, 90% of my frustrations in life come with dealing with certain people who I would never have encountered if it weren't for the Internet.

On the gripping hand, I would be incredibly, incredibly bored without it. So advantage, Internet. But just barely.

The funny thing is, when I've gotten pulled into closed forums via links or other ways, I too find the place exactly as I remember it.

And that's all the reminder I need to keep them closed.

I don't have the time these days to waste on people who ruin my mood, so rather than attempt to debate with them I simply choose to put them on ignore and remove the effect they have on my experience. I have better things to do with my life these days than let my mood be soured by some idiot on the internet.
