Topic: What if rangers had a sneak spell
Replies: 27
Views: 2935

Yeah, but never targetable. A whole group hasn't been able to sneak unless it's a group entirely of elves wearing elvenkind, or UD sneak races. So while I don't object to rangers getting either or both of a self sneak and self hide spell, I wouldn't like to see them able to cast it on other targets.

I agree with all of you.

It would be a Bad Idea if people had to play the game.

Or if we even encouraged and promoted associations in which playing the game was successful.

Instead, let's have far too many half active, or dead guilds so that new players have nowhere to go to enjoy the game.
