Everyone here would prefer if you didn't post a link to another site. You are likely to get more comments if you just post the "5 Improvements" here. Just my 2 cents

I crit!
Uh... man...

I'd bet if you posted your whole article, or at least a goodly meaty portion of it here you'd get even more click throughs.

counter intuitive? Not really, because if it generated discussion here it'd stay on the "front" of new stuff longer and more folks would have a chance to find it and it would probably rank higher.

Rules-lawyering drama queen... Be nice plz n_n
I only agreed with two of the five "improvements," unfortunately.
Let's see
Reinvigorated skill check system
Partially a good thing, but that same system somehow makes quite hard to pick weapons and armor beyond one's class. Also some of the uses feel counterintuitive and need feats to allow what was basic functionality. So, no.

New champion class
Which IMO all but killed what made the paladin a paladin. And it is incomplete.... Pass

Simpler action economy
Part of it is a good thing, but it puts too much of a burden in casters -and who wants to quicken spells only once per day?- Besides it feels antiquated compared to 5e just "use your movement as you need it"
Ok, lets begrudgingly agree...

Revised combat feats
Which hardcode combat styles to classes, making it hard to pick. I don't know, but I miss taking TWF with a paladin or a halberd with a sorceress...
Pass

Goblins are here to stay
Yeah, Goblins are cute. Agree

So. In short, yes I agree with only two

Hmmm. 50+ drive-by link bombs, but no follow-up posts. I'm going to move this to the Promotions forum. @SomthinClever, please post these in that forum in future. Thanks.
 

Gladius Legis

They called the Pala ... err, Champion an "improvement," lol. It's practically unchanged from its playtest version, which makes it possibly the worst class in the combined history of D&D and Pathfinder.
