Why do some folks act like Sean killed their pet?I don't get it.
He could not have done possibly anything personal enough to random people on the internet to warrant the d-baggery that is on display sometimes.
Ok here is what I know he did, but it's not a comprehensive list. Proof is on these boards, just hard to find. There are screenshots too.
-Killed the Monk class
-Treated a lot of play testers badly in the play test
-Made a lot of very bad feats and class abilities
-Played a huge part in why Crossbows are so bad
-Helped nerf martial characters a lot
If you like Monks then yes, SKR did in fact kick your puppy.
This is not quite accurate. Sean was the mouth of the message boards for a long time, so it was him out defending some decisions that were made by the Design Team.
Sean was (and will be) responsible for putting some great stuff in the game and was a valuable and is very missed member of the Design Team.
He will be a hard fellow to replace. I also think folks are going to be very happy with the final classes he lead for the Advance Class Guide. Sean and I had many discussions about those classes in playtest and final form, and a lot of what we talked about was spurred on my the great discussions and comments made on these boards.
I'll tell you a little secret. Back when I was in college, Sean and I used to go rounds frequently on the old TSR Online AOL boards. I will admit that online he can be...well...challenging at times. His dedication, passion, and quirky sense of humor sometimes doest translate well on forums. After working with him for years I can also tell you he is one of the nicest most talented guys in the industry. And he cares a lot about his work and the fans.
I miss that bald bastard. :)
