I've always been a fan of archers in fantasy settings, too. I was thinking of writing a news post on how archers never seem to get any love, but then I realized I would look like a moron because archers always get respect in fantasy. From Legolas to Robin Hood, archers need no help from me in being badass. So yeah.
While we're on the subject of fantasy settings I must again sing the praises of Pathfinder. I know I've linked the hell out of this and you're all probably sick of hearing me kiss its (beautiful) ass, but I've been having such a blast playing it with some good buddies of mine that I felt the need to once again spread the nerd love. Leveling up is very, very satisfying and the game mechanics are so smooth that you feel like you're playing an easier game while still capturing that glorious pen-and-paper roleplaying game feel. It honestly makes me feel like a sixth-grader again when I geek out over how awesome my multiclassed half-orc bard/sorcerer is.
Oh, who am I kidding. I've never stopped geeking out over stuff like that.
That's all from me for now.
Rock on and nerd out.
