Hello, everyone! I'm sitting on top of the world today, celebrating the fact that I've finished paying off my house. To go along with that, we have a fun episode for you today- we are discussing ability scores vs. ability bonuses, rare and monstrous player races and their impact on the roleplaying aspect of the game, as well as the logistics of carrying around particularly large and cumbersome weapons and gear. I think we get to some fun places in this episode, so come along and celebrate with us!

Question(s) answered this episode:

1. Why do we still have both ability scores AND bonuses?

2. Do you think that having too many rare player races makes everyone's race more bland?

3. How do you rationalize PCs carrying around weapons that would be way too big and cumbersome?
