You're all welcome. (I'm the one that got them, hehehe).

But especially thanks to Garthanos for putting them somewhere we can all access them! That's the key thing.

I know that in another thread we had discussed the possibility of "featuring" one of the builds and discussing it in the thread at length, maybe making improvements on the build or adjusting the ratings based upon our experience with it.

In any case, I'm happy that we've been able to save these.

Useful stuff. Btw, I organized a lot onto Enworld and you're missing Poachable Powers - this is a list of powers useful to poach organized by stat, class, and level. I've ultimately found this to be one of my top 3 threads any time I'm creating a build.Poachable Powers with the Wayback Machine link in it.

But the main list is here:

So, at one point there was some talk of maybe starting a thread on the builds there. Maybe evaluate some of the favourites and whatnot. Does anyone have interest in doing this? And if so, perhaps we should start in the optimization threads and pick one of the articles to go on.

I have had my time absconded with by a necessity job search... but wanted to do an article/thread about the Non-combatant/Princess/Lazy Warlord Build.

I hate it when real life interferes with fun stuff! Well, hopefully all of that sorts itself out. I can definitely add some firsthand opinions with a Lazylord build as one of my players just ran one in a short campaign I did.

Also, I'm not skilled in webpage modification, but I do have decent skills in formatting documents. Depending upon what everyone thinks, as we do these "reviews" I could take the initial posts and bring them into a PDF document (or something similar) that could possibly be linked from the webpage. The PDF could be a summary of just the mechanics. If this is something that we think is helpful, I can even get some docs put together for a half dozen or so just to "get ready" for future discussion.
