Title: loving this mod
Post by: berelinde on July 05, 2006, 03:43:07 PM
So far, I'm really enjoying this mod. A lot of things just make a lot more sense, now.

First of all, I always thought it was silly that Anomen makes reference to stabbing things with his spear, and one of his sounds makes reference to his sword, but he doesn't have either proficiency.

I know that Anomen is an anomaly in the D&D world because he should not have been able to dual-class with that wisdom. Maybe he was originally intended to begin as a cleric before dual-classing to a fighter? That would justify his stats. But this isn't the place for that speculation.

I do like his new proficiencies very much.

Good mod!

Hey, thanks. Clerics with swords rock.

Actually, his wisdom would also be too low to allow him to dual class to a fighter from the cleric class, too.

That's true. He'd need 15 wisdom and 17 strength to go from cleric to fighter. Maybe we can pretend he used to be at 15, but then got hit on his... head. His wisdom head. His compassion fell out when an ogre stabbed him? I dunno.

Well since wisdom is learning from ones experiences and having the humility to realize when you've been wrong maybe Anomen just had some of his pop's arrogance and self delusions rub off on him once he dualed to fighter.  Who knows how you justify it in your own mind.  There are a lot of non PnP things in the engine/game.

Can't say it ever bugged me much. Lots of people change professions even if they are more successful in the first one.

But yeah, Anomen probably had a tough time growing up because he was never good enough to please pop. So he never did.

Still, I do like Anomen, even if he's flawed.
