Do we need to use ranks?[edit]

Could we sneak in trained, somehow? Maybe a class would get 5+1/2 level ranks in a 'specialty' skill, and 1/2 level ranks in all others?

We'll remove skill ranks. You simply get a +1/2 level bonus to skill checks, and another +5 to trained skills, as 4E. --4SRD 01:37, 17 April 2012 (PDT)

Could we use similar powers for similar classes?[edit]

There are many Powers in the Fourth Edition which almost duplicate Powers from other classes. Could we take a page from previous editions and just give the same Powers to several classes, just as the same Spells were often given to clerics, wizards, druids and rangers?

Yes. 4E has created a lot of system bloat by limiting each power to one class only. I agree with your suggestion. Powers should have an entry with the classes that can take the power. Typical candidates for power sharing are Fighter, Ranger and Warlord; Barbarian and Warden; Wizard, Sorcerer and Swordmage, etc. --4SRD 01:37, 17 April 2012 (PDT)
