Thanks for publishing this.  It helps to know what I ned to reread, and also to know that someone's actually listening.

"Nice assumptions. Completely wrong assumptions, but by jove if being incorrect stopped people from making idiotic statements, we wouldn't have modern internet subculture." Kerrus
Practical gameplay runs by neither RAW or RAI, but rather "A Compromise Between The Gist Of The Rule As I Recall Getting The Impression Of It That One Time I Read It And What Jerry Says He Remembers, Whatever, We'll Look It Up Later If Any Of Us Still Give A Damn." Erachima

For Dragon 283 article KYR: Controller,  the feat:

Destructive Power Feat Power
By funneling greater power into your attack, you ensure its
effect is not wasted.
Free Action Personal
Trigger: You roll a 1 on any damage die when you hit with an
area or close attack power
Effect: You reroll any result of 1 or 2 on a damage die until the
die roll is something other than 1 or 2.

The effect and trigger are different - is it intenional that the Trigger is roll a 1, whereas the effect is to re-roll 1s and 2s?
PS: shouldn't it be "Drow Ecclesiast"?  Ecclesiastic is an adjective; ecclesiast is the noun.

I'm just glad you folks take this so seriously.
If you look past the plot and the voice acting, Metroid: Other M was an okay game. Not a great game, but an adequate one. Not using the Metroid item collect jingle though? That, was a mistake.

Beguiling Curse: Remove this feat from the article.

but... but... WHY?

I was so excited to use this feat for my Succubus-leaning Infernal&Dark Tiefling!

Familiar Power: Wizards –
Familiar Mount: Change to “Your familiar grows to Large size and can accommodate you as a rider, and it is in active mode for the duration. You can end the ritual by returning the familiar to passive mode with a minor action. If the familiar takes damage equal to 5 + one-half your level or more, it returns to its normal size and to passive mode.”

I don't see how the change to the Familiar Mount ritual in the compiled issue clarified anything.  It looks like the last two sentences were just swapped.

In the errata thread for the article (community.wizards.com/go/thread/view/758...) the confusion is if the familiar's hit points are changed from 1 HP to 5 + one-half your level HPs or if the 5 + one-half your level damage needs to be taken in a single attack (similiar to the shaman's Spirit Companion) in order for the familiar to return to its normal size and passive mode.
