I don't see this a lot, but I see it enough that I am confused/lost/etc. What makes people think it is a good idea to not buy a ranged weapon during character creation. I understand that sometimes our brains shut down and we just forget what I call "common sense" items. I am guilty of this. I am asking about the players that intentionally just don't get a ranged weapon. Some have said something about a character concept which I still don't agree with, but it is no my character. Others have said they did not think they would need one, and they have not always been brand new players. I had one player get mad that I had flyers, and he had no ranged weapon despite the fact that he had the gold to buy one, and just chose not too..
This is a question that has been on my mind for a while(within the past 6 months) so it is not a recent event, but I am sure it will happen again.
