... is there anyone who actually LIKES level-draining no-save monsters? Really? I think no one really likes these. Its stupid. Its not a clever mechanic, the kind of risk it creates is not an exciting in-game risk (like poison, or attribute drain, etc), but rather something that steals away your accomplishments.Well, I like it. Because it isn't stupid, and I can't see how it's any different than injury or poison. And certainly I like it better than attribute drain, which I think is an annoying mechanic. (Really? You want seven hit point pools instead of one?)
Now, The RPG Pundit is one of those people who has opinions about what other people's opinions are. He's not impossible to deal with, as some other people like that are, but yeah, sometimes it makes him say stuff like this. No one really likes level drain, and you're lying if you say you do. Because even though you say the risk is exciting, you aren't really excited by it.
