Splatbook 130 - Class??!? We Got Class!

Miss Manners ain’t got nothin’ on us in this episode! Join DM’s Glen, Brian, and Fulongamer as they discuss custom classes. After a round of emails, they tend to matters at hand. First they review the Demihuman Deities supplement, then examine the custom classes article in Dragon magazine #243, and then bring things to a close with the fourth part of a six-part series for novice players.

(DM Brian here! Our most sincere apologies, but the last 10 minutes of the show was cut off from recording somehow.)

Any chance you'll catch up? That episode was recorded back in October, last year. 6 months is a long back-log.

I am not saying this to be mean or be an ass, but I work two jobs and I have a 2 year old. I barely have the energy to do the podcast biweekly. I am trying to edit faster, but having two hours free and clear to edit and post is not easy to come by. I am doing the best I can, but unless someone comes along who will edit the show for free, its going to be slow.

First they break down the wizard kits of Cormyr, then give an overview of the Cormyr supplement as a whole, then bring it home with a review of Volo’s Guide to Cormyr.

Email from DM Freddy – Giant questions (cloud giant alignment, catching boulders, bouncing boulders)
Email from Sol Hawk – Clerics and faith, Iron Realm podcast plug

Another great show this was.  I recall that in my second edition days, I played one of those purple knights with great fervor for the kingdom much to my fellow players' collective chagrin.

FULON is a Master Sergeant and he watches anime?  Lord, have mercy.  I'd complain more but at least he knows how to handle firearms.  So...man card is secure...

We’re going headhunting in theis episode! Join DMs Glen, Fulongamer, Brian, and Cory as the delve into a mixed bag of topics. After taking care of some emails (after which Cory has to make his departure), the fellas settle in for the main event.

I love you, gentlemen.  Talk of FULON's new firearm brought a smile to my face.  Can we get pictures, please?  Has he had a chance to put it to good use?

I must admit that the discussion on re-skinning monsters brought to mind a certain song written and performed by Jonathan Coulton.  He has a warning.  Try not to use too many monkeys.
