So I've been wondering, why are dragonmarks not allowed in RPGA/LFR games?
It seems like almost everything else is allowed, so why close the door on such a small thing?
Personally, I know my cleric would *love* to take Mark of Healing, as its a very powerful mark, but not being able to have it really impeeds my ability to grant saving throws.
Mark of warding is a great mark for wardens..but not legal in LFR.
I guess my question is, why are odd things like Warforged and Kalashtar legal in LFR, but something silly like dragonmarks are not?
If its just a lore reason..that seems a bit silly, but I guess I understand, even though the rules on lore are constantly bent.
Is it a balance reason or somethign else?
I'd just like to know the *official* reason for not allowing dragonmarks in LFR!
Dragonmarks are unique to Eberron. That's why their not allowed in LFR. Warforged and changlings are not unique to Eberron. That's why they are allowed.
Beyond that, Dragonmarks are not balanced with normal feats. They are almost unanimously more powerful.
You'll see a lot of PCs with Mark of Warding and Mark of Scribing.
I sort-of hate that idea. On one hand, those cards are goofy-powerful for four hour games, and removing one of them from the character's playable stack to allow for a goofy-powerful feat isn't a terrible compromise.
On the other hand, flying thundering swordmages knocking every enemy within three squares prone every round.
. . . .or Gamma World!
(Draw from the mutation deck at the start of every adventure! Wheeeee!)
