    Appreciate you including them...

    ...but, I have to say, I really hope this isn't how things are in the monster manual. This seems to me to be an unnecessary obfuscation. Now I have to remember a bunch of new symbols and what they mean?

    Why not just have R for ranged, M for melee, C for cone and B for blast.

    Or would that be too easy?

    But then we would need to remember that R is for ranged, M for melee, C for cone and B for blast, right?

    Edit: Oops, I just remembered that C is for close and B for burst. See, images work better

    Supposedly "Feather yon Oaf" allows allies to make free basic ranged attacks; Some of the conditions in the Minis rules disallow nonbasic attacks, dazed among them iirc.

    Of the Experience pre-gens all the martial characters (and the paladin) can make basic ranged attacks with a bow or thrown weapon, and the arcane powers Magic Missile and Eldritch Blast both make basic ranged attacks.

    good idea. I've always wondered why the white wolf forums didn't have a dot smiley.

    And what for burst?

    (Incidentally, powers marked with "TM"s mean "'Tis Mince", while those with "TM"s mean "'Tain't Mince".)

    Also - Ondo's most recent dice images look fantastic, and I hope they are adopted quickly! Thanks for all these contributions, Ondo!

    Slightly OT, but is there some way to make the Reply to Thread window display a list of available emotes? I can see the emotes when I quote Morrus' text, but I dunno if I'm gonna remember "bmelee" ( ) et al.

    Hello,

    In case it could help, I worked a bit on a D&D 4e Icon font to be used in used in publications.

    Here : D&D 4e Icons.ttf

    Have fun

    If D&D can take a page from them, I'm all for it! And compressing things into a single symbol that is easily understood sounds like something good.

    Cheers, LT.

    I only took a quick look at the font, but I couldn't see a non-basic melee attack.

    I get a box of clickable smilies when I reply or post. Perhaps it's a setting in your control panel?
