Wait, did taking a dark secret become compulsory; I'm quite happy to pay a 1-feat tax on "Not being a horrible person except when I mean to be"?

(Also, how would we be tiering Os's monster classes? I imagine the default would be to call them tier-2?)

My current char-concept is a gargoyle or a gorgon; some kind of stone guardian-spirit, all overwrought and gothic, wandering and searching for things to hold sure.

Okay, I've had time look at the rules for this game.

The WBL replacement looks fine, but I have a kneejerk negative reaction to the strange stat rolling that grants a feat.

There is no reason for anyone to not try and roll high stats which means that anyone who gets lucky will have higher stats than everyone else and also a bonus feat.

Yeah, so it's just regular rolling stats but with the ability to fall back on PB if you roll poorly.

I mean, it doesn't make things *better* exactly. But it could be a lot worse, I feel.

(I mean, if you're against rolling stats in general, which is also valid, then I can doubly see why you're annoyed)

I'm not against rolling stats in general, but I don't like rewarding people with a feat because they got lucky and rolled higher than the PB (which is already a reward for being lucky all by itself).

It also feels weird because the partial gestalt is (I'm assuming) meant to even the class playing field so now high rolled stats (and the bonus feat) are the new way to have some characters obviously better than others.

I did mention my interest on Discord a couple days ago. Chopping is good with the x5 method. Being almost broke just for having masterwork Full Plate and a Masterwork weapon would discourage those kinds of characters with the 1/5th method.

I'm giving in to popular demand - there will be no bonus feat for accepting random abilities. Instead, there will be a bonus feat for everyone. You get a feat, and you get a feat, and you get a feat! Everyone gets a feat!

14 12 10 13 13 11. 25 PB. Would be playable in some settings, but I don't expect this to be a low powered game.
