Suck up to that special character, player, DM, (insert something else here) in your life!
Deider recently posted a thread about an idea I had about getting xp for class skills, which the team and himself decided no. So why am I raving about it and Deider? Because they put the idea out there, took discussion, gave opinions, listened to input, and made decisions. I feel like recently there has been a very transparent and involved process in the changes being made and I cannot tell you how much as a player I enjoy that.
