Yeah, there's a lot more material now for designing oriental (or any other) theme characters than there was when I asked the question.

That calculator is very helpful. I know raw numbers aren't the complete answer, but having them to hand makes it much easier.

comment Beyond hit points: injury in D&D
I guess my attitude might seem half-hearted, in not wanting to make the major modifications that D&D needs to become more realistic. My focus here is above all what's fun for the players; realism is only one means to that end. And the fact is, my gaming group are lazy hack-and-slashers, so trying to force them to play something too sophisticated is likely to fail. Fun is also the reason I favour specific nerfs over simply killing the PCs.

comment How can you add character to in-game religions?
+1 As a designer of character sheets, you've prompted me to go replace the word 'deity' in a dozen places.

+1 for 6. If you treat the game as a place to explore unusual options, then losing the game can be a win.
