The Rants used to be posted on {{LiveJournal}}, but Limyaael has moved to [=InsaneJournal=]. The Rants originally posted on LJ can still be accessed there, though.

* GameplayAndStorySegregation: Limyaael's rant on D&D gameplay mechanics notes that while many of those rules made perfect sense ''in a gaming environment'', they don't translate well into a narrative environment, if at all. (Seriously, why do those wizards ''need'' to keep memorizing the same spells over and over?)
