My L337 H4X0R SK1LLZ ( ;)) dug this up from the archives at wotc.
It's the old topic regarding Invisible Blades feat prerequisites.
http://web.archive.org/web/20080416112623/forums.gleemax.com/wotc_archive/index.php/t-139190
Was in the progress of making a dagger-based build and I could have sworn that I read somewhere that the feat prereqs. had changed to Weapon Finesse and WF: Daggers.
So tried the gleemax d20 handy links, but that link only goes back to the _very_ annoying redirection page.
But with some unusually functional memory-based braincells, I got enough remembrance to search and thus fund this:
http://brilliantgameologists.com/boards/index.php?topic=7319.msg240174#msg240174
Just tried to sub the URL in the reply with the one I was after and hey presto!

Anyway, thought I'd share the love :D

Those actually would be great to include, imo.

For while most of us know they exist, sometimes remembering where to find them is a pain.

So I am, once again, trying to catch up and get back to D&D. I'll try to update this thread with your suggestions by the end of the week.

kalvas kaksikko lattialla motellin tihrustelee,
kun sama keiju katossa leijailee.
Kyselevät: "Mikä päivä nyt on?
Tiedätkö sen?"
Kuiskaten laulaa keiju:
"Tämän elämän viimeinen."

Added the index threads to the Wizards of the Coast post and Suzerain's Dragon Magazine thread. More on Monday, ran out of time for today.

Didn't see this quite listed (tho alot of the old info seems mined and updated here) but...

You can access alot of the old WotC Optimization and other BBs stuff here:

http://web.archive.org/web/20080305224208/forums.gleemax.com/showthread.php?t=482636

You will need to flip thru the pages to find add info.

You can get to the base BBS pages here:

http://web.archive.org/web/20080206212445/forums.gleemax.com/

Or here for the main D&D Forums:

http://web.archive.org/web/20080206211231/forums.gleemax.com/forumdisplay.php?f=8

if there is a link off those boards that appears dead you can do this:

Old Link:
http://web.archive.org/web/20080217235143/http://forums.gleemax.com/leaving.php?destination=http://forums.gleemax.com/showthread.php%3Ft%3D415717

Trim off the middle part: "http://forums.gleemax.com/leaving.php?destination="

Past new link in to browser:

http://web.archive.org/web/20080217235143/http://forums.gleemax.com/showthread.php%3Ft%3D415717

And you should be at the the desired page.

I still get some dead links but its still handy! :D
