The "thing" is Thomas, my final 3.x fantasy character. He was twinked to the nines, can you tell? The only normal thing about him was his name. The DM let me throw all kinds of things into the mix. Basically, what I was going after was Batman. First off, Raptoran but with Draconic Heritage [Silver D...

I get rather sick of folks talking about how everyone is so wrong about 4th, because it has the mechanics set up so that you can go a whole session without combat, AND STILL GET X.P.! Howzat for new and original?...

I agree with Treebore, and want to add that this is one of the coolest alt character classes I've seen. So cool that when I read it, I opened my mouth and actually said "Wow. Cool."

I know that sounds stupid, but I don't talk to my computer too often.
