    I think this is an absolutely wonderful breakdown of the differences. Helped me a lot. Thanks for the great article! I’m looking forward to seeing how this affects general game-play. Grab, Juggernaut, Fend and Wrestle are surely gonna create a whole new scrimmage dynamics…

    Its a pity master chef got the shaft, halflings really needed it, I’d be much happier if they could buy one permanently rather than per game 🙁

    This is excellent, will you do a similar thing for LRB 6 when it comes out?

    • Coach November 5, 2009 at 9:41 pm #

      I was planning to do so yes, glad you found it helpful.

    LRB 6 is out.
    The only differences I have spotted are stunty and Wood Elf Catchers, must look further
