Re: DnD 3.5 Class Changes/Rebalances (sans Paladin)
Sorry if that came off as rude, I realized I had to run do something when I wrote that top part in, as I did it after the notes. Didn't pay much attention to how it sounded, but I had already went through your list of changes.

To be honest, it would make more sense in a civilized society, as they have schools that teach things.
2a) The whole thing about Bards needing better weapons is reasonable, but I find him to have a plenty useful weapons selection for what he does. Light, easy to use weapons, but thats just me. :p
2b) I can see the forgery argument, but Bards never come across to me as being the tricksy type.
3a) Fair enough.
3c) Ah, so you use a different system. If thats the case, pay no attention to that comment. :p
4a) Druids in Core, with Just MM 1 are broken. While removing books helps a bit, the inherent problems with druids power still exist if thats all your doing.
4b) Logically it seems like a bit of a stretch to me, but this just seems to be a different perspective on things.
5a) I should have elaborated more on my reasoning there. The fighter has so many different feets to chose from it gives him a lot of options for different builds. It just feels awkward to start giving him specific kinds of abilities, all of which are all about defense.
5b) As before, since it's for altered Mechanics reasons, it's all good.
6a) I don't recall Sorcerors being able to change what spells they know. I'll re-read the sorceror hear in a while then.
6b) Thats an argument that the wizard is better as he is right now, which I kinda find flaws as of course the wizard is better, they are overpowered.
7a) forgery doesn't make sense because a Wizard studies how to create MAgic Scrolls, they study magic, and logicaly all sorts of different knowledges, as that is a key part of what a Wizard typically is.
They do not study how to successfully mimic and create fake documents containing believalbe and/or false information.
Just because I've read a lot of books, filled out a lot of forms, and seen many different kinds of ID's does not mean I will be able to forge a fake one. That is another skill on it's own.
