I will refrain from commenting as there are more than enough posts out there already, attempting to reinterpret and read between the lines.
Class Design: From Assassins to Wizards
Tomorrow (Friday, January 27, 2012 from 12:30 to 2:00 PM EST)
Designers Monte Cook, Bruce Cordell, and Robert Schwalb discuss their approach to class design, including the difficulties in creating iconic versions of the classes that speak to players of all editions. Should the cleric be more martial or more healer? Does the default ranger have an animal companion? What level of complexity should the fighter have? Seminar to be followed by a Q&A session.
