I've actually been meaning to shoot a question off about just this sort of thing, though time permitting I may just see if I can bounce it off Jay Little in a couple weeks while at GamerNationCon; he's the guest of honor, and I've been asked to help chair a panel with him on RPG writing.
Let us know what the response is, Donovan!
Certainly will, if only to show ScooterinAB that he's wrong in trying to force a general statement in place of specific rules.
Excuse me? I cannot believe that you said that. This is a discussion about rules interpretations. All I have done is present support for a differing opinion about the rules, and you have made an unbelievably inappropriate personal comment. By all means, get a ruling. But don't you dare attack me because my interpretation of this is different from yours.
I've reported your post to the mods as inappropriate. Grow up.
