<t>well not to nit pick (though that is what the lawyers will do) it seems he's done at least some of it by hand around on the bottom. That makes it his own. NOT BY MUCH, but still I believe might hold up in court. Also what makes this more mulitfacted, is the fact that he found this piece on a webs...

<t>I'm confused. There are two pieces up there. One just a copy with the watermark off (which IS against copyright laws) and the second a piece derieved from the original, which while dubious, is not against the law. Was the story that he was trying to pass the first one off as his own?<br/> _______...

<t>And you see I knew that, but it would still be nice for it to be in the book. To use a term and not define it makes no sense. Because of monsters, you have to have something similar to spell-like to explain what they can do. And because it's a simplified version of it so much the better. But it n...

<t>I thought I saw it somewhere. <br/> <br/> I beg to differ. If you use a term in a book you need to define it. I know what Spell-like means in the AD&D and 3.0, but what does it mean in C+C???<br/> _________________<br/> Nightstorm: So tell me something about your elf.<br/> <br/> Zippo: He's a...

<t>oh but I didnt even get to my point. I would like to do the warlock, but I think a more generic "Sorcerer" would fit in more. I think it's important to include a class with innate magic.

<t>well how it stands a warlock gets three invocations at every grade. That I think can remain the same. The damage reduction, fiendish reselancy and perhaps even the eldritch blast might have to go.
