Hi all, Platiumus.
I've said this elsewhere but no harm adding it to the talent thread

-- Like CJM and Platiumus suggest, I REALLY like the idea of having at least 3 levels of talents for all the major things people can specialize in. Heroes really need some powerful, hard to get talents, that help them compete with high level wizards.

-- I think that talents are too expensive compared to spells. I think some rule change should be made to allow normal IQ figures to buy more talents. (If talents were cheaper, less people would be wanting to add rules for education and the like.)

-- David B. has argued well, that when ever possible we should avoid using high Attribute prerequisites for talents. (The next time I revise my talent list, I'll be toning down attribute requirements.)

-- How long it takes to learn talents may want to be looked at.

-- The terrible punishment for forgetting a study, needs to be toned down.

Warm regards, Rick.
