*Two points about this gag. Firstly, every writer of anything makes typos and I’m no different. It’s “there but for the grace of God go I” rather than schadenfreude here. The second is something called Muphry’s Law (no, it is Muphry’s, not Murphy’s) which states that any piece correcting or laughing at a typo, spelling or grammatical mistake will contain at least one worse than the original being complained of.

Is it because I called Wheel of Time critically acclaimed or because I confused it with Game of Thrones? Both?

And you have a tofu projector!? I have no idea what that is but it sounds way kool ,rad even!

That you even dared compare the two.

I do, however, have one last lesson on this subject. That last one? The only build in this post that can one-shot average opponents[by dealing twice as much damage as they have HP? I would argue that it is not optimized. Why isn't it optimized? Because it's overkill. Overkill is NOT optimizing. This means that there are portions of this build dedicated to damage which can safely be removed and thrown elsewhere. For example, you probably don't need both Leap Attack AND Headlong Rush at the same time. You could pick up Extra Rage feats for stamina, feats to support AoO effects, feats that work towards potential prestige classes, and so on. However, you could also shift our ability scores around somewhat. I mean, if you're getting results like that with 16 starting Strength, maybe you can lower it to 14, and free up four points to spend somewhere else - perhaps back into Charisma, giving you some oomph for Intimidating Rage or Imperious Command if you want. You can continue to tune this until it deals "enough" damage - and that "enough" does not need to be "100%". It could easily be, say, 80% (leaving the rest to the team), if your DM is the sort who would ban one-hit killers.

Guns are good.

Guns make reasonably intelligent bad guys run away, or surrender until you shoot them and bury their bodies under the compost pile the police arrive to take them away.

Guns also make stupid bad guys (ie, bad guys who clearly see that you are armed) run at you insanely, and then you shoot them and then bury the bodies under the compost pile and clean up the blood call the police and report the incident.

That's ignoring your inability to hit anything under those circumstances, too.

No, a gun lets impotent old men overcompensate, and then get shot. Or shoot an innocent person because of said old man's raging boner and idiocy.

Yeah, HD said it. If you've evr been anywhere in public you know that people are unpredictable, unstable, and liable to blow their lid at a perceived insult. Too dangerous for them to be allowed to have a gun in their pocket.

Guns are far more dangerous and easy to use than a knife. If you're angry i's so easy to whip out your .40 S&W and pull the trigger. Besides which, there's no reason not to take measures to solve part of a problem even if other problems remain.

No, I don't think so.
I would say they are equally dangerous, and, believe it or not, it is easier to use a knife than a gun.

I don't believe it. You need to have some degree of training or you can just read a manual. SDure, guns require mantenence but I'd wager most people who use one in anger hae recently picked it up and haven't started worrying about that.  And guns are far, far more dangerous,. There is absolutely no contest there whatsoever.

It's also a bit harder for medical professionals to work with knife wounds than with bullet wounds. Turns out that a large, sharp piece of metal can be used to do a lot more damage than the average handgun bullet.

What makes guns more dangerous than knives?

Buckley "The straw in your man is amazing."- Maxperson Original Hipster of the House of Trolls: I was hipster before hipster was cool Resident Hater Mini Hate Machine
I would say the range, rate of fire and ammunition capacity makes guns more dangerous than knives.

I will however add that knives are more readily available.
But one can kill someone with a knife just as easily as with a gun.
Sure, a knife doesn't have the range a gun does, but beyond 20 feet, without any training, good luck hitting your target. However, one can stick you in the gut with a knife pretty easily. Well, one can shot you in the face from 2 or 3 feet pretty easily too.
As far as ammo, after your gun runs out, you're through. However, one can just keep stabbing the out of you with a knife until their arm gets tired.

Yeah, guns and knives are equally dangerous. What makes the difference is who is using it and why.

So please, take the anti-gun nuttiness somewhere else.
Thanks!

I mean, if you're getting results like that with 16 starting Strength, maybe you can lower it to 14, and free up four points to spend somewhere else - perhaps back into Charisma, giving you some oomph for Intimidating Rage or Imperious Command if you want. You can continue to tune this until it deals "enough" damage - and that "enough" does not need to be "100%". It could easily be, say, 80% (leaving the rest to the team), if your DM is the sort who would ban one-hit killers.

Liberals are dangerous too.
Can we stop producing them as well?!?!?!

Yeah, that's why we were the ones that fillibustered all those civil rights bills. ;)

Actually, you were. Lrn2history, n00b. Seriously, look it up. The Civil Rights billed of the 50s & 60s were passed despite heavy Southern DEMOCRAT opposition. Including one Senator Al Gore, Sr. from Tennessee. Now why does that name sound familiar...?  




Yep, it was called the "Conservative Coalition". Look it up.

This thread has turned political and I'm afraid that's not allowed, as you folks know.
