I write computer software for a living, mostly in Perl. I give away lots of it. Share and enjoy!

In my spare time, I tell my daughter stories about Batman, read books, watch movies, play video games, and try desperately to play D&D even though nobody I know wants to.

The dwarf could get his second wind as a free -- but it's not important to me, as I'm running a human-only campaign. YMMV. ;)

...and I feel really motivated, now, to work on one-PC striker scenarios that favor a thief/assassin type. Stealthily engage minions, using sneak attack to drop them before they can coordinate a response...

I was so sure, when first thinking about it, that strikers would be the way to go, but you are one of many people I've seen say that strikers don't work well alone. -- As for healing, what if second wind was made a minor action, and maybe if a third wind was allowed in solo play?

Multiclassing! Why didn't I think of that? Clearly, an excellent idea -- although hard to suggest to existing characters. Maybe I'll gently encourage new characters to consider multiclass feats, hybrid classes, and classes with secondary roles.

I really don't like the new cover art, and now that you mention it, I do still remember the page number or quite a few important tables...

comment Out-Of-Control Characters
If the player wants to be a jerk, he will find a new way, if you quash this one. If he doesn't know he's being a jerk, he will apologize and change. In-game solutions are useful for recalibrating the game balance, but not (in my humble opinion) useful for jerk players.
