  1. Umm doesn’t the edit undercut the main point?   We won’t know if the Barbarian has the right data because we automatically excluded him.  

  2. Ben Jarvis what I was getting at was the following:

    Stabbing drunken incompetent city guard in the back = no Hack and Slash, as not actually melee

    Barbarian trying to understand some esoteric magical theory = no Spout Lore, as no actual accumulated knowledge

    But that’s the less important bit.  The important bit is that there is no mechanical difference in the move between being a novice magician and an ancient master, in the same way that there is no mechanical difference between Hack and Slashing a run of the mill city guard and an elite city guard.

    Does that make sense?  I altered the language slightly, I intended to focus on the 2nd bit.  If you think Barbarians actually have some accumulated knowledge of esoteric magic theory, then the point is moot.

  3. Two words: Oral Traditions!

    They rest doesn’t need explanation and totally had my arms raised (metaphorically) and screaming Freebird!!!
