<t>Congratulations on the purchase! The boxed set is my preferred version of the game. I enjoy "regular" C&C just fine, but something about that boxed set really just clicks with me. I'm a believer that less is more and the CE boxed set delivers. <br/> <br/> If you are looking for more classes, ...

I used to play when it first came out. Not a bad game, I'm just not to much into computer gaming anymore.

Pretty much my opinion. I've played it enough to see that it never really changes, no matter where you are or what level/class you are.

Perhaps...though my question was about special abilities combining with racial abilities, which apparently has the opposite answer of Listen checks.

I trust this would also include an Elven Fighter who takes longsword (or a bow) as their weapon specialization? The +1 and +1 do not stack?

One more vote (and further derailment) on Monks: I'll pass. Reminiscent of a certain scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark, the guy with the funky flashy moves & kicks still gets shot with the crossbow.

Absolutely! These are the TLG boards, not Dragonsfoot where the mere mention will incite riots. Many of us here aren't overly fond of 3.5, but it won't offend us either.

I dig Dragonsfoot, but the hyper-sensitivity over something so silly sure makes me laugh.
