Yeah. That's what I meant basically about the weapon. Do you suppose you might do Penguinator a favor and not punish him for my mistake? I was thinking letting him choose a different weapon (Falchion would seem to match his preferences and wouldn't change anything that's happened so far) and pick a different feat?
Edit 2: Alternately he could take superior weapon training in Fullblade (which is apparently pretty well recommended).
Edit 3: Actually, this is not enough of a problem to try and fix while Penguinator is gone. We can wait till he gets back and let him make choices himself. The only question is if you'll let him do it before we next level up and if he can not lose any money in the transition from one weapon to the other.
Edit: Heh, this was tricky to find but...I finally found written out details of Grasping Tide. (Which technically isn't a Dragon Magazine power at all. It apparently came with a set of miniatures. The point is, it's the only normal at-will aoe druids have.)
I'm just writing down the details here in case that image vanishes or something.
