EDIT: Ah, right. Skill focus. I'm considering doing the armourer thing and taking both armoursmithing and weaponsmithing... someone needs to know what they're doing, after all. I once had a DM who declared that skill focus applied to both if it was applied to one, so I've decided it doesn't hurt to ask. Then again, I once had a DM who combined the three metalworking craft skills, which is a little more unreasonable.
Pre-game crafting... any thoughts?
Shield specialization (PHBII): possible to add extreme (RoS) to the list?
On another note, is it possible to get a few more details about recent events, if there's anything notable beyond what's been covered already?
Also, do dwarves in this worlds have funny accents in general, or no?
Thanks. "Love of Nature" and "Wild" are the ones I like and fit my character very well.
I was mainly looking at dire animals in MM2 for future wildshapes. About Animal Companions... I love bears (in rl too... it is my favorite animal) so I will take a black bear flavored as a brown bear cub (so I don't need to swap animal as I gain levels, but just change the stats and say that he grew up)
