With enough twinking a merchant can be a force to be reckoned with is what I mean. But a merchant is a merchant not a warrior is the shouldnt part.

I think we just agree to disagree then :)

I don't think having a merchant who is half-decent requires you to be twinky.  There are plenty of reasons why a merchant can be able to hold their own against a normal threat.

If a merchant is a merchant, and not a warrior...does that mean that a warrior is a warrior and not a merchant...and all of them with crafting subguilds should stop selling goods and mastercrafting stuff? :)

You were a good brother once.  :)

I'd like a merchant who can simply survive the normal things traveling between cities. Raptors, tok, etc. I don't expect one to be taking down gith or kryl.

A merchant is powerful because (s)he buys guards, templars, and nobles. Possibly other sorts of people as well. If you're traveling alone you're doing it wrong.  :)

Yeah, RP with Rakius with my first pc Sira is what hooked me here, their horrible little melodrama which was so fun. <3

I reject that and all other arbitrary limitations.

It's not arbitrary, it's their role. They get stinking rich and use all that money to their advantage.

Alternatively, play a ranger with the mastercrafting subguild of choice.

Seen some people without combat skills who got relatively badass, all things considered.  But it certainly isn't easy.

I have a very hard time playing dwarves (I get bored with the single-mindedness and social implications that has).  I can play half-giants, but not when people are staring at you waiting for the comedic relief; I play them as big dumb brutes who know they're big dumb brutes, so I kinda play them very sparingly as a result.  I obviously have a hard time with mages.

I can't play desert elves well.  I don't particularly enjoy the balance between iso and non-iso.  I enjoyed them a great deal more when you could have your own tribe with your own limitations, so long as you weren't spewing mages out into the world willy-nilly; now they feel far too restricted in what you can and can't do (only in my head; I haven't actually played one in a long time, pretty much since they said no more self-tribe creation and recruiting).

I have, to this day, never played a merchant or craft-heavy character where a majority of their skilldentity was in crafting skills.  I get really frustrated whenever I try.  I find out a few recipes, then get hungry to find more recipes and get myself killed just out of the desire to find something unique and awesome to make.

What you have to do is design a bunch of really fucked and weird mc's that have weird recipes so other people have to go out and try to figure out the unique and awesome things.

Also dildos.
