Barring any objections, Gelias continues on to the small village, smiling and nodding to passersby and looking for the local tavern or inn.

<t>Yeah I like to try to rope folks in by having books available to access and take home -- that way they don't feel like they have to invest in a new system that they don't have any books for... after they fall in love with it they go out and get their own.

Steve!

Is there going to be a multiple book deal offer-type thing like there was with the second printing?

I like to read with one book in each hand and one under my pillow.

Cheers...

Acererak -

I forgot to send hit points... is it a straight roll, max hit points at first, something in-between?

I used the dice roller -- you should get my email.

I'd love the house rules when you get a chance before I decide on my race and class.

Cheers, looking forward to it.

<t>While the SIEGE engine can certainly handle actions like tripping, power attack, etc. What it can't do is help out a player who wants to be 'extra good' at something, like "I want to be specialized in disarming my opponent" or "a master tripper" or "a particularly good negotiator"... some little ...

<r>Meh... absolutely silly if you ask me. I've never heard of a class ability have a chance to be worse than something all other classes can do. Do you force all classes to make wisdom saves versus illusions, or just illusionists, since their class ability to see through illusions is tied to wisdom?...
