    You should do the teleporter paragon path. I thought that sounded the best. Being able to move an enemy four spaces seems pretty OP. Do you have any more episodes queued up that havent been posted or have you all not recorded any this week?

    I would like to thank you guys for including these kinds of discussions into the Critical Hit Podcasts. I have never played D&D mainly b/c I never knew anyone else that did. But, I have always been interested in how the game is played. I feel like I am playing in the games and I feel like Orem (spelling?) is partly my character. Like Stephen said in this episode, I would be sad to see him die.

    Keep up the great work.

    I felt the same way about not wanting my character to die either, and luckily he never did. My group just disbanded years ago and my Halfling Monk Lydorf Lightbringer has been stuffed into my old 2e or 2.5e PHB or something like that. He was a pretty badass character though, even though I think my DM was overlooking a little something here and there letting my guy be a little tougher than he should be but heck he was a tiny little Bruce Lee. Is there still a Monk class in 4e? I didn’t see it when I flipped through the PHB at my LCS, although I may not have full perused the 4e PHB vol. 2.

      Monk class added in PHB 3

        SWEET! I didn’t even know that there was a PHB 3. Huh. Righty-O, well I seem to have lost my saving throw against Sleep and will be doing Two D4 hours of sleep. Thanks.
