Re: I want a frickin' chinchilla dagnabbit!

The contrary is true from my experience - Chinchillas can be quite hardy. My Sister's fell from a banister down an entire floor (Over 12 feet,) landed on tile flooring, and survived without even a hospital visit. It was a very traumatic experience, especially because I was mostly at fault. (Sucker j...

Re: It used to be about the Magic, man!

Either it completely sucks minus the one or two times you need to use it because the developers are dicks, or it completely owns everything because not only is it insanely flexible, but far more powerful as well.

I've only played 3.5, but I may end up trying out a 4.0 campaign relatively soon. Until then though, 3.5.

Although.. Fuck Magic users. Any campaign in 3.5 that I'm running has heavily gimped magic, especially on the higher side of things.

The problem is that people don't understand that tiers mostly become important in higher level play.
