Fantasy Craft / Re: Drake + Personal Lieutenant: can it work?

Depending on the maturity of the group and player,  you could follow the example from the Iconic Sage and make two versions of the PC and PL and swap back and forth either vertebrae scenes or sessions.
I've checked that, and this seems like the best option :)
Yeah Takeru, I was mostly thinking that just out of the blue, if maybe someone will die in the next adventure and would want to play a drake at least now I got an idea about how it could work, instead of just "banning" the race.
Paradoxally giants work very well in the Rise of the Runelords campaign...

@Salvatos: no powerplayers or minmaxed characters in my lawn ;)
Defense list:
assassin/swashbuckler: 20 (level 8 )
courtier: 16 (level 9)
courtier's PL: 11 (but with DR 9)
keeper/alchemist: 20 (level 9)
soldier: 23 (level 10, DR 7)
burglar/mage/mist dancer: 24 (level 10)

The non listed characters' DR range from 0 to 2.
They don't possess loads of magic items since I profundly dislike the way magic items are handled in TOG (while I love FC's system).

Just got back from Star Trek, and it's some proper good stuff. Had the goofiest grin on my face from beginning to end, even got a little teary-eyed at a couple points. All in all, fantastic movie and just about everything I wanted from a modern Star Trek movie.

I'd suggest you talk to your GM whether playing a Drake full-time is a fit for the game and whether or not it would be a significant hindrance. Honestly, being very large and dragon-shaped will be much less of an impact on your ability to play a game in a "classic fantasy" like Faerun, Eberron, or Golarion than the lack of hands would be.

I find Giants to be much harder to design around. They're sheer measured size makes it impossible to go most urban, underground, mountainous or otherwise even remotely cramped area. A dragon at least tends to be quadrupedal and able to fly, that means they can get along just fine in a lot of areas they can reasonably squeeze through. You can also get away with the world having doors juuuust big enough for the dragon to fit through if he folds his wings and squeezes, but a Giant really causes cinematic issues.

Wonder if they'll be available over here...

NZ gets all of the Marvel shows on Netflix at the same time as the US. It even works out better for us as we don't have to take a Friday off work to watch them as soon as possible.
Oh sweet thanks Wolverine. Might actually look at getting Netflix (there was a huge stink about a ton of shows we couldn't get when it got launched so I've never really looked into it). Do you have it? Is it good?

Not just Europe but also Japan and Australia too.

I played a minmaxed level 6 dwarf martial artist that had a Defense of 34 and a Fort save of +14 IIRC (with Block and Parry of course). It was viable, but too focused to be much fun in a serious game. He wasn't much of a damage dealer either; he mostly tanked and used his whip to pull enemies where the rest of the party needed them.

No, I meant that the Drake pretends to be just the dumb mount of the PL although he is in reality the mastermind. Just have the PL tell the people that he is a tame dragon hatchling. That should allow you to take part in most locals to direct your PL (give it telepathy so you can stay in contact).
As GM I'd prefer that solution, since having you play an NPC as your character is something I'd try to avoid.
