Anthony, I discovered TheBlueBard several days ago and consider myself a fan now. I am going to implement your brilliantly simple segment system in my next game as well as your illusion saving throw table. Thank you for those.
I would very much like to read your commonsense take on backstabbing if you are inclined to write on that. I mean, if a first-level thief is force to make both a hide in shadows AND a move silently roll before ever backstabbing, he may never get the chance.
How would you handle this both in and out of raging combat?
