Re: "Zealot Sword" Feedback

This is just silly, but it illustrates well why removing the phrase "jihad" was a good choice -- this poster seems to believe that not actively offending Muslims for no particular reason is going to somehow help "extremist groups" "undermin[e] our freedom of expression"...

Re: Make DD able to rest.

DDs start the game at XL3; they don't have HPs; any (shaved) damage they take is deduced from XPs. They die if they ever reach 0 XP. No HP, hence no healing. Have you ever been "pemanently zero skilled by sonja"? Your idea is basically that, you have a race that will take damage until it ...
