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.

This is no longer the case. The Character Builder is now written in Silverlight, which also works on Mac OS X and at least some Linux systems. The other Adventure Tools are due to be released as web applications soon, as well.

Agreed, a duplicate. Should be merged.

I haven't tried running it yet. I am starting from the assumption that it's possible, as I've never tried. If you think it's just untenable, though, say so!

That sounds reasonable; no answer accepted until tomorrow night! (Sorry, Bael, I'm just following orders. ;) )

Wow, those are superb. Thank you, I will read each and every power now, making notes to pass along to the players.

Having gone back to the books to review some of this, the one thing I think worth noting here is that Skill Powers are still Powers. That is: they're almost entirely about combat encounters. I think they're great, and will encourage them, because it will be a reminder to think about Skills, but they're basically a combat tool. (Some, esp. in Thievery, seem like non-combat, until you realize that they exist only to move a normal action from standard to minor, or minor to free.)
