What shall I say to thee, rakkoon, thou cruel,
Ingrateful, savage and inhuman creature,
That knewst the very bottom of my soul,
That almost mightst have coined me into gold
Wouldst thou have practiced on me for thy use?
I think it's just general, slightly humourous support for this thread.
Y'know, like how people normally use 'ftw'.
Being not as versed in the ways of the internet as some, I was not particularly familiar with the expression (though I knew what it stood for). Thanks for the clarification and sorry to For'Ninniach for mistaking your meaning.

Thanks to the amazing Aruius for my excellent Emerald Knight in Action avatar!
And from my personal observations, threads that get the most comments, from big amount of comments to a small number:
Pointless threads that encourage little feedback (birthday threads are the exception)
Topics that become a debate.
Topics that encourage posters to make up stuff.
Homebrew that is broken mechanically, but the fluff is nice+.
Homebrew that is mechnically ok.
I actully considered switching the places of topics that become a debate and topics that encourage posters to make up stuff. While debate topics more commonly reach high number of posts, topics that encourage people to make up stuff can get a much higher page count, and are much less likely to be locked by a mod.
So it`s commonelity versus power/survivability.
Eberron's awesome. It's the only world where Orcs are the stewards of nature and Elves rampage across the land in destructive hordes.

Pure as the driven snow, you are waiting until the afterlife for your reward. Maybe you have had to repress some urges, screw down some feelings, squash some temptations and sometimes stop yourself from having fun. Don't worry. It's probably been worth it.
Pa-Chow! You could definitely be a ninja!
You have all the necessary skills and knowledge to be an awesome ninja, not to mention you understand what being a ninja is actually all about.
Being a ninja is not just about fighting people and wearing black, but a way of life that has spanned generations. Ninjas have a history of being disciplined, logical, secretive, stealthy and very fit. If you try your best, you could be among them.

Fantasy RPG Class
The Psionic Striker 23% Strength, 22% Bloodlust, 52% Intelligence, 38% Spirit, 33% Vitality and 20% Agility!
Instead of using magic to manipulate the elements and the world around them, Psionic Strikers will use their mind and mental energy. By focusing their mind, Psionic Strikers can use telekinesis to lift objects and even unleash powerful blasts and shields of mental energy. As masters of martial arts, Psionic Strikers can even use their telekinesis to increase the physical power of their punches and kicks or they can use it to levitate. Against weaker opponents, Psionic Strikers may use their powers to mentally shatter a person's neck or spine. By using their telepathy, Psionic Strikers can read their opponent's mind, and thus more easily predict their next move in battle. This makes them extremely difficult to counter because they always know what you are going to do next. Their telepathy can even be used to speak into another person's mind and plant thoughts and ideas there. They can use this power to manipulate and control their opponents, thus allowing them to turn any battle in their favor. Psionic Strikers often have a passion for death and battle, and some have mastered forms of dark magic. By fusing this dark magic with their psychic energy, Psionic Strikers can create and unleash devasting blasts of powerful energy from their mind and fists. On the other hand, some Psionic Strikers are more peaceful and have mastered forms of light magic, which they can also fuse with their psionic energy. In addition, Psionic Strikers can use their mastery over moon magic to enhance their strength and agility by transforming at night into various wild and ferocious beast-human hybrids.
Congratulations on reaching this frighteningly powerful class!
This is a special class and requires a very high amount of Psionic Force. You scored 88% on this variable!
Psionic Force overshadows any Hidden Power granted by the Genie.

Silent, deadly, and frightening, you are the Chaos Phantom. You're dark, and you're light, and you might be a tad bit bipolar. Or maybe not. I really don't know what to make of you. The truth is that normally you're a relatively stable person. But as a master of both light and dark magic, there is both good and evil that resides within you. These energies are normally in balance, and when they are balanced they can create truly frightening and devastating magical combinations. For example, you are able to control gravity, create masterful illusions, and throw your opponents into vortices of darkness and destruction. You can even use your powers to teleport, enhance your stealth, and escape from danger. Your powers distort the very stability of the world around you, and therefore if your powers are not in balance, you may end up being devoured by the energy and the chaos within you. Or worse, you may end up consuming the world and everyone around you in your insanity! Normally introverted, Chaos Phantoms wander the earth alone trying to stay clear of anyone and anything that might disturb the balance within them. In battle, Chaos Phantoms prefer to attack from the shadows and from a distance; however, they are not opposed to using their powers at close range if absolutely necessary.
Congratulations on reaching this extraordinary class!
