    You know what I like most about religion in Birthright? They've thrown
    out the clerics! Hurray! *cheers loudly* I was also really glad to
    see they've done away with those pesky psionics.
    Specialty priests - yeah, that's more like it...

    That's definately one of the pros of BR. Specialty priests are so
    much nicer than clerics, and much less boring.
    And PSI definately is broken. The four standard classes are balanced
    (well, more or less), but psi is way too powerful, maybe that's
    because it was added later. The only exeption is a Dark Sun campaign,
    where everybody has psi. It's a bit strange that something that is
    broken is not broken once everybody has it...

    'nuff said
