    I wasn't joking about the stress.

    Cassie, remember: it's a game, it's a game, it's a game, and William has, if put to it, a couple of teleport spells memorised if things get really bad. :D :D :D

    I'm just one of those people who has to invest quite heavily in a character to be able to play them, and an often annoying by-product is stress when things start plummeting downhill. :p

    Paradoxically, if there's anyone who is likely to survive an encounter with a D&D monster, it's a mage. If this seems odd, Google up the phrase "Batman mage", or "The 3.5 Wizard's Handbook", and see exactly why these guys are Tier 1. :D

    Yes, I know. :p That stuff makes for entertaining reading. Just chalk my behaviour up to the fact that whenever things go wrong, anywhere, in something I'm involved in, my instinct is to do [link=http://1.2.3.10/bmi/media.tumblr.com/tumblr_ltgf1kmlSr1qiboxr.gif]this[/link].

    Can't help the way we're made, I guess. :p

    So, does that make CoDzilla a tier 0?

    Strictly speaking CoDzilla's tier 1 as well, mostly because it's arguably equal to a wizard in effectiveness - whilst clerics or druids usually don't have a lot of access to the types of spells that dominate initiative, they're monstrous on a battlefield and they have full access to all their spells every day. Wizards have to scribe and learn their spells, but even from level one they're deadly because of spells that allow them to manipulate initiative and the action economy - contingent celerity is a popular tactic for these purposes, particularly when you combine it with things like glitterdust, grease, etc, etc. The difference, which is to say there practically is none, is that the cleric has options which are going to make him practically unhittable in battle, that is, appallingly high defences and heavy damage; the mage is also unhittable, except the mage's method of not being hit is to basically never give you the chance to swing a weapon at him to begin with.

    Dreaming of nymphs? There's a joke about going blind somewhere in that, but I don't think anyone's put their finger on it yet...
