Re: Dungeons and Dragons (and other tabletop RPGs)

I don't think it's right for the DM to veto a power like that, unless he provides a very good reason that makes sense in the context of your game's world. I mean, it's a daily - those are supposed to be very powerful, and with a regular load of 4 or 5 (or even 6, but that's getting a bit crazy, espe...

It's not on sale, but Bastion was released on Steam today. The game's pretty damn awesome, and definitely worth its current $15 price tag. But, if you must wait for it to go on sale, I guess that's okay.

The thing with wizards (3.5), though, is they can only do the magic stuff a rather limited number of times per day. A rogue has no such limit, other than the amount of time in a day.
