Nick,

A few comments on a recently played-through a Druid. I'm sorry these may sound negative, but the truth is that I found this Druid less fun than in an earlier version of yours.

Would it make sense to rename the stealth scores so that they actually reflect this? What is at the moment "Excellent" ought to be "Fair", then "Superb" ought to be "Good", and so on.

Inspired by this post, I fooled around with the character gen a little to discover that:

Objection, yer honour. While I agree that player deaths are important for the metanarrative, I don't think "unfair" events should be. For instance, dear ol' Rogue didn't have this issue. Yes, your...
