Great job to all involved! I particularly enjoyed the dueling articles about backstory. That was fun.

It's kind of funny to think that it's basically a contributor arguing with the editor. We almost could've had a giant hand descending on the page and doctoring the text as a visual gag. But I do really like the setup of alternate views as well.

So, anyone want to take on a point/counterpoint debate for the winter issue?

Resolve: Paladins are, and always will be, goody two shoes of the PC world.

Debate!

(But seriously, thanks for all the effort you all put into this! The exchange was a fun read.)

Hey at least when I'm wrong I don't give you 9 pages explaining the tragic source of my wrongness.

Well then I'd just act like you and not read it!

Wait, you mean that class the gods use when they want to get creative with the smite button?


If I wasn't getting a campaign ready (hoping I can convince some IRL friends to join), definitely entering Iron again this year, and my work schedule had the solidity of a shadow illusion I'd jump at the chance.
