"The "Less DM power " idea is an insidious reaction to bad DM's (I played with many of them) and the simple fact players buy more books."

Brilliance from EPT

From someone's recent Empire of the Petal Throne game:

Stuff I like:
  • Marching Order rules
  • No Read Magic (I think...)
  • More Use of Saves
  • Int & Con use - I'm curious as well.
  • Fighter class skills
  • Spellcaster class skills and bonus spells
  • Critical hits
There's some more cool stuff there, but not for an D&D-based dungeon crawl game.
