I'm shocked. So shocked that I now use the shocked emoticon, thus: :shock:

Epic Levels killed Avlis. Really, they did. Also, I hate each powergamer personally. Crafting shouldn't give class xp.

I'm voting experience system.

Economy.......

A bit weird when you have a quest to rescue a mommy from a little girl that was picking flowers and they can give 1000 gp while they are a poor family :shock: . ((No offence for the DM though the quest was awesome))

IMHO poor families should have trouble with giving 10gp....... Also it is to easy to become a millonair. I think there should be less gold.

What is stealing really? Chaotic or evil? And why can't my half-drow Paladin with red dragon blood loot Mikona dry with no fear of an alignment shift? His motivation and whacked-out morality are all explained in my far-fetched, cheesed up character background! :P

Horsoliches are my favourite dead horses.

What about "How come I need a martial proficiency to chop wood and mine ore?"

So... Crafting comes closest... :roll:

True. In the forgotten realms sourcebook, it says something like "most commoners go their entire lives without seeing 1 gold piece." They trade mostly in copper and sometimes silver. Gold is for rich people. But the reason this is a dead horse is... bioware only included gold in the game. The old-school d&d video games had copper, silver, gold, platinum. In NWN, gold takes the place of copper, because it's the lowest currency available.

True but 1000!!! I mean even a 1000 copper pieces would be too much! The family could have given 10gp fas reward. It is not much but it is all about the RP right, and you get xp as a reward as well. 1000 gp for a poor family is in my opinion a bit to much.

Poor Electrum is forgotten again. :(

Electrum, half the metal that gold is, but 10x the metal silver will ever be!
