* ''{{Eberron}}'': Loli-pope! [[labelnote:Explanation]]The head of one major church (and, more or less ''de facto'', the theocratic nation in which it is based) in Eberron is a ten-year-old girl. Note this is not "''looks'' like a ten-year-old girl, but is really an immortal vampire" or something. The immortal vampire is the head of a ''different'' country.[[/labelnote]]

* [[http://i205.photobucket.com/albums/bb17/antar000/ACTIONPOINTS.jpg?t=1299110940 ACTION POINTS!]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Action points allowed characters in TabletopGame/D20Modern or {{Eberron}} to add to a roll, allowing characters to go "above and beyond" their normal abilities. The [[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} Eversor Assassin]] is obviously using his.[[/labelnote]]

* [[GameFavoredGender "-4STR"]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Some unknown source suggested giving all female characters a -4 penalty to strength (STR) at creation with no equivalent bonus. FATAL is sometimes credited for creating this, but they merely made similar "feature" (and it's based on hundreds rather than twenties).[[/labelnote]]
** Nowadays, anytime someone posts this, they're attempting to get people to posts pictures of female bodybuilders, amazons, etc.

** In game, Dex based swordsages in spite of being considered the weakest of the 3 Tome of Battle classes, have a notorious reputation for ganking opponents not correctly defending themselves. [[labelnote:Explanation]]The reason for this is manyfold. Reason One is their initiative bonus. Heavy incentive for dex, the Quick to Act class feature, along with other potential but basic minmaxing such as gear, often means they're leaving NPC's in the dust, acting first. Reason Two is the combination of Shadow Blade, insightful strikes and Assassin's stance. Shadow Blade is a feat that allows them to add dex to damage when in a shadow hand stance and using shadow hand weapons. Said stance is often the assassin's stance, adding +2d6 sneak attack. Insightful strikes adds wisdom to damage when using maneuvers from a selected school. Thirdly is incidentally, the maneuvers. They let them do things like pop off 10d6 damage in a standard attack, do short ranged teleports as move actions, turn invisible for their turn as a swift action, or evenmove freely during a charge - giving them an array of heavy hitting options while avoid the riposte.[[/labelnote]] Long story short: Massive initiative checks, stealth, damage bonuses and class features make them crazy-quick at getting the drop on foes - Usually in the first or surprise rounds.
