    How come only the bad guys get to ride dragons? :( Saint, you are oppressing us terribly! :p

    Actually, if Xan gets the dragon she wants she would [link=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dragonriders_of_Pern]definitely be one of the good guys.[/link]

    And if you were in a setting where the evil guys [link=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dragonlance]get first shot at riding the dragons,[/link] you probably would be throwing bricks at me right now. :) In my defence, pretty well anyone who ever played in Krynn is now throwing bricks at the writers, so I'm in good company.

    Not to mention the inevitable party kender. Only time I ever brutally murdered a fellow PC was in that setting - guess which race they played?:p

    Oh, I know Pern well enough. But we're not in a Pern game. (And just as well, too; Impression arguments abound there, or so I've heard. :p )

    I am unsure as to how bad the inclusion of kender might be; it really depends on whether killing them is deemed a good or an evil act, because the alignment balancing game is tricky that way. So. Killing kender, and balancing it out; eat a bus full of nuns, or settle down to teach snotty-nosed orphans how to read? :p

    It'd depend on the GM. Mine switched me to Chaotic Neutral. I, by contrast, would probably let a paladin get away with it scot free.

    Which kind of makes me wonder how the kender race survives. Plot armour?

    Basically. Put it this way, when Chaos himself [hl=black]stomped the life out of Tasslehoff,[/hl] I strongly suspect there was as much cheering in the house as occurs during a screening of ROTJ when the AT-AT blasts an Ewok out of existence.

    Both the good and evil factions believe the other one will genocide them soon. One out of reason, the others simply because they are buggers. And then nobody does it. Balance.



    So yeah, totally plot armour. Kenders are like Hobbits and how they should NOT be done!

    I knew it! I knew that bugger Gilean had something to do with it! I've never trusted him ever since I knew he was allowed to break the rules on immortality for mortals and have Astinus hang out at Palanthas for centuries!

    Moderation is nothing if not legwork.

    INFORMATION ON THE MOVE CAN BE FOUND AT THE STICKY AT THE TOP OF EVERY RPF BOARD. WE RECOMMEND YOU GIVE IT A ONCE-OVER.
