OK, so I didn't expect an RQ 2 or 3 reworking, so changes are fine by me, but I sure did think it was reasonable to expect that any changes that would be made would have generally been in keeping with the spirit and style of the originals. This stuff is not.
I agree with you in the most part but, I don't know, where do you go from Runelord/priest? I hope it will be easy to use these things as rewards for HQing.
I have been toying with the idea for a long time of making the abilities of rune levels PC's non-standard so each cult would grant different abilities ie a Humakti RL would have very different abilities to that of a Chalana Arroy RL. I have even thought they should be High Temple specific..
I don't feel that they are favoured enough by their god and DI is too powerful and generic.
