    I am just sayin, ya know.
    To be fair, M&M3 had some changes for changes sake (renaming intelligence to intellect, for example) but it stayed true enough to it's roots and fixed an already great system.

    hehehe... this is funny. The Germans and Japanese make just as much on after market parts as the Americans do. Look at a certain World's Largest Automaker's recent recall woes that hammered their US sales figures for an example of that. Read the details on it. I'm not saying the Big 3 (or Detroit 3) are better, just funny that companies that rank very poorly in JD Power's Quality studies (Volkswagon, Scion (part of Toyota), and Mazda to name a few) are seen as dependable. Heck even Mercedes and BMW are rated as Average, while Buick, Lexus, Lincoln, Mercury, and Porsche have the highest rating. (One Japanese, Three American, and One Italian).

    But back to the matter at hand -- why can't D&D people learn from that and just all get along? And, in my opinion, whether you prefer Pathfinder/3.5 or 4E doesn't really matter, does it? It's ALL Dungeons and Dragons.
    People like to imagine that they're relevant, so they argue about stupid things.

    Things thatmake you Hmmmm. I still trust whome I trust. In gameing I like 3.5 and 3.75.
    Piazo worked hard to fix as much of Hasbrto's under thought gaming system, just to get the mateerial out. That ssassys a lot about their 'quality control'.
    I own a Nissan and it is at 250,000 mile + and I think that is a good record.
    That says a lot about Quality control. Oh, by the wway, there has never ever been any engine work such as needing a new timing gear, or something like that.

    Please go easy on him. It is that he can't help it. His chosen career as a gnome has his mind all messed up.

    I just used to work in the auto industry and always found it funny customer perceptions vs. facts. That's really why GM and Ford suffered so much, their perceived quality was the problem (Chrysler however did have a lot of issues).

    I had a Toyota Corolla that had around 300k km on it. Great car. I also owned a Buick Lacrosse for 5 years and loved that vehicle also, smoothest ride I've ever had. Note, I was 22 when I bought it and the dealer tried to talk me out of it, saying a young man like me should buy a Chevy Pick-up or something. Now I drive a Dodge Caravan, a sad reality of having 3 kids. One day I can get back to my old man vehicle... one day...

    Porsche is German, and we have a beat up 944 that doesn't even run sitting in our garage, but it has been mistreated by its old users

    I am to understand that Luigi Porsche started with the Volksvagon, than had a dispute or something and left for Italy and started Porsche there, making it Italion.

    It also explained why you can make a VW into a Porsche with a kit.

    Yeah, I was going to point out the Porshce is German, not Italian, but Gandalfmithrandir beat me to it.

    I agree completely! Well, almost -- I would substitute SF gaming for supers, but it's the same general idea.
