I’m a thirtysomething dad and IT professional living in the Austin, TX area. I started gaming way back in the day, 1982, with the TSR space opera game Star Frontiers. Since then I've been an avid roleplayer. I went to 5 Gen Cons, was a regional Triad for the RPGA's Living Greyhawk campaign, helped start a gaming club (the FORGE) in Memphis, TN, et cetera.

I GM and play a variety of RPGs; currently Pathfinder is in heavy rotation as well as various non-D&D-based games.

comment Does the main target of the ghoul touch spell get a saving throw?
Mmm, usually requiring a melee touch attack is in place of a save for many spells. It's ambiguous.

comment How do you encourage players to leave classes behind?
I have to agree - games other than D&D don't live and die by min-maxing. They don't need optimal, they need to come up with a real-person concept and create it.

Sorry man - good technique but it does not address my question, which is uses for an existing gaming taxonomy.

I h ave re-clarified the question above, though somewhat under protest because I think people aren't exercising their reading skills much this week.
