    It's not about "not having problems with the imbalances of 3.x." It's . . . never mind.

    You know, I don't think I've ever asked you. Why do you care so desperately about the 3.5/4e edition wars? Everyone got into it at least a little, all those years ago. But you wrote more about it and talked longer about it and started more arguments about it than anyone else. I remember one period of a good few months where you put something Edition-War-related in literally every single post you wrote, no matter how unrelated the topic might have been.

    Over the years, most of the Edition Warriors drifted away. They picked their system and stuck with it, or they learned to like both, or they decided they didn't like either, or they just got sick of arguing. They all drifted away, one by one . . . except you. You're still trying to convince 3.5 players of why they should be playing 4e instead, even though you have to know that virtually no-one cares anymore. Why do you still do it? I'm genuinely curious.
    I'm the author of the Alex Verus series of urban fantasy novels. Fated is the first, and Book #10 in the series, Fallen, is out as of September 2019. For updates, check my blog!

    New Thread.

    Also, Oracle, Ive havent been a long poster but you do seem anxious to shove your stance rather aggressively from what Ive seen.

    It was already awkward in 2E ("My Fighter/Wizard/Cleric can wear armor to cast cleric spells, but not wizard spells, and has to use blunt weapons.") and 3E-style multiclassing will only make it worse. It will probably be better to follow the 4e route of leaving fluff decisions up to the DMs and keeping the rules as "mechanical" as possible.
    I like 2nd edition multiclassing more than leveling up and ordering your class level from a menu as found in later editions. The confusion of what class aspects are compatible could be allievated rather easily with a helpful matrix. Restrictions are part of class balance and multiclassing should have a bit of a challenge to it, because if it was easy, everyone would do it.

    I'm afraid the conversation has moved on...fourteen months and ten threads ago.

    Yeah, but the discussion felt more productive back then. Less arguing, more helpful suggestions about Next. Can we just follow MtIguy's lead and return to it?

    Also of note:

    I have a number of ongoing projects that I manically jump between to spend my free time ... so don't be surprised when I post a lot about something for a few days, then burn out and abandon it.
