comment How can we compensate for a Warforged's lack of healing?
Even if your wizard doesn't want to turn into a cleric, 1st level wands are cheap and easily purchasable in Eberron, and 750 gp for 50 charges of healing isn't a bad purchase. Heck, the Warforged can buy it and give it to the wizard. When I was playing Living Greyhawk (Convention play, so new party each session) each player had typically had their own, and the cleric won't up with 6+ happy sticks and coloured string on them... some CLW, some Lesser Vigor, I even had some Faith Healing ones, though I never used those.

comment How is Paranoia - High Programmer different in play from Paranoia - Troubleshooter?
@GMJoe Yeah, looking over it again it isn't a great answer. It establishes they are different product lines, but nothing else. The development blog might have more. Also: My answer hasn't been accepted, so hopefully a better one will come along.

comment What are the notable differences between Paranoia XP and Paranoia Troubleshooters?
+8? How did I get +8? Oh, one upvote and one downvote. If whomever downvotes this sees this comment, could you let me know what you don't like about my post and how I could do better next time?

comment How can I safely represent non-combat fire magic?
I know movie sets make very realistic fire using a special, thin cloth, a lightbulb and a fan; I saw a prop like this at the big prop exhibit after the first LotR movie came out. I'm not sure how hard it would be to build something like this, but it gives you another option if you wanted to make a brazier type thing.

comment Can a true neutral character cast spells affected by alignment?
Suppose you are a cleric of a nature god who doesn't care about good or evil. Using Blasphemy to fight an angle leading a group of people to develop the woods could be perfectly within the neutral faith, provided you don't do it a lot. That said, you might want to Holy Word some feinds or something afterwards, just in case.

comment What Lovecraft inspired classes exist?
@KRyan In one way, yes, but if I'm looking for classes in books I already own, or in books my DM allows, then this is far more useful.

comment What Lovecraft inspired classes exist?
@KRyan But yeah, it was one downvote a year ago, just the very first one I got. Let me know what you think of the changes. I admit, I'm a compleationist and like some of the more obscure of Lovecrafts works to his straight up Cthulhu stuff, so that could make my choices look a bit odd.
