** Also, the Controller role is more vaguely defined than the others. The Fighter and Rogue already have so many powers focusing on forced movement or StandardStatusEffects respectively that a martial Controller can't be a new class. The only concept that makes sense is a ''WorldOfWarcraft'' Ranger with pets and traps.

** If bestiality is making such a regular appearance in your campaign that this comes up, you can feel fairly safe in making a house-rule without worrying that WotC are going to publish errata that will contradict it.

* The climax of "The Dragons' Graveyard": Morality aside, are we really supposed to believe that arrow ''could'' have killed Venger, even with the FieldPowerEffect in place? The guy has repeatedly survived stuff that looked ''a lot'' more lethal than Hank's powered-up arrows, giving the impression that he's immortal. You figured the reason the kids enlisted Tiamat's help in the first place is because she's the only thing in the Realm powerful enough to kill him DeaderThanDead. But when she agrees to help, all she does is bring him there, so they don't need her to kill him for them after all, meaning this place supposedly must make their weapons ''as powerful as Tiamat'', but she breaks out of one of Hank's energy lassos very easily. Even with the power boost they have there, it doesn't look like their weapons have been made as lethal as Heart Stones, the Dragon's Heart, a collapsing Hall of Bones, or an erupting volcano -- that is, as the stuff Venger's returned from without a scratch. During the battle, Venger bats one of Hank's powered-up arrows aside as easily as he always does. So why how is one shot from an arrow suddenly supposed to be able to kill this guy?

** Some settings justify it with special "crafter classes" - for example, Eberron's artificers, who have access to a pool of free crafting XP.

** Probably be rejected by her body which recognises the child as a non-related entity. Sort of like how humans can't carry a baby chimpanzee to term.

** Also, out of the elder evils so far only the worm that walks has been updated for 4e(Atropus has been briefly mentioned), and Kyuss is very much within the epic levels. It's been a while since I've looked at Open Grave, but I remember him either being a level 28 or 30 solo(boss).

** Okay, but the ''Book Of Exalted Deeds'' still says that "only a niave fool would try to convert" demons and devils to good. So again, I wonder, why is it that celestials can turn bad but their {{Evil Counterpart}}s can't turn good?

** Traditionally, it's easier to corrupt something than it is to purify it. So, yeah. Angels can fall easily, but it's going to take a lot more to make a demon ascend.

** I can certainly get LawfulEvil rogues as assassins could work for specific groups or organizations, like the Zhentarim (run by the Church of Bane) and evil churches (Asmodeus, Bane and Bhaal). As for LawfulGood rouges, Gray Guard paladins (that fights dirty) could make use of rogue multiclass for extra skills that Gray Guards use and they often work as good-aligned assassins.
