    Not really, because Beorn's horses in The Hobbit weren't any bigger than usual, just remarkably clever. Besides which, what you're thinking of is a modern breed that's only been around since the...

    Be consistent, if you're not asking for it yourself then by your own argument it's none of your business. Besides which, if people start asking for a load more stuff to be account-bound then it...

    I'm not the one asking for the game to be changed to specifically favour my playstyle. And at least I know how a damn RPG is meant to work. It should be obvious why character-bound is the norm and...

    In case you missed the blindingly obvious, I don't want one because that sort of ridiculously contrived, oh-so-convenient arrangement is absolutely terrible RP. Certainly not something that makes for...

    The fundamental principle's still the same, these are meant to be characters, not some weird gestalt entity that shares everything seamlessly.

    The default assumption in this as in other games is that characters are discrete individuals who *don't* share their every possession and every coin in their pockets directly with a bunch of other...

    I'm saying that the assumption that your characters all know each other and share all their stuff is bogus. Back in the old days when playing pen-and-paper RPGs, someone would always try to insist...

    That's totally the wrong way round, items being character-bound predates housing so it's daft to say they should 'never' have been designated that way.

    Really, housing should be...

    No, you're just doing what you always do, trying to use money as an all-purpose clinching argument with not even a shred of evidence. Just plain weak. (And weaker yet was using the word 'proof' when...

    Exactly, in stories from a bygone Age rather than the much later one this story is set in. Back then, Morgoth's power was such that there was mistrust and hostility even among the Elves themselves,...

    'Unlikely'? More unthinkable, in the context, and so hugely galling to anyone who knows that (as a whole bunch of us said at the time). That's the trouble with this game, some of its mechanics are...
