    The saving throw comparison doesn't work that well because these are different categories of AC.

    Looks like "going dark" doesn't mean not posting a lot of info on his favorite board.
    Yeah, already knew this, but it's good to have it reaffirmed.:love:

    Well, yeah, but modern sniper rifle will kill non-mages just as effectively and, like I said, magic is not just making exploshions with your mind.

    I would love for them to use the Arcanum concept of Magic influencing the workings of complex mechanical objects, would go a ways to balance rifles in a medieval world setting.

    I wonder what the hell they will be able to showcase? (Alpha) combat? Exploration? Character creation?

    :/

    The rest sounds cool. Defenses was one of the things 4E did very good. Sad thing that D&D Next isn't copying that system.

    A vertical slice is basically a single complete area. Its value stems from the fact that if you can get one area working, then you know there're no roadblocks and can likely get every other area working too. It's also the period of development where you set up your pipelines and estimate just how many areas you're going to be able to turn out before launch.

    So a fully-functional demo pretty much requires the vertical slice be finished, though by June they should be into production and there might be areas other than the vertical slice available to show.

    I know what the Vertical Slice is. I'm wondering if it will be ready by June, and if what they intend to showcase on June is in fact a demo.

    "Frog Helms Fan Club" is such a cool unique name that nobody else would possibly name their blog like that.

    If Feargus or Fargo don't hire Ziets fulltime I am going to be rather displeased.

    I would suspect they are not sure about their budgets to hire him. Would suck if they hired him, but then have to let him go a second time because they could not afford to keep him on. Which is the more likely reason they have not hired him yet.

    And then Fargo can just hire him.

    :troll:

    I don't think he is THAT fucking stupid.

    But sometimes... you need to pay the bills. :/
