When a character is an absolute expert in making something like a rune, a ring, or bow, the player should get a minimum of 1 point of experience instead of 0 points of experience when they make an item. When the expert crafter gets 0 points of experience for everything they make, they drop off the list of experts in their craft.
It's been four years since Jil's comment and I'd like to support her assertion that it would be extra nice if Archane Archers who are masters of the art of making bows could also name the bows they make..... (unless we can now and I am unaware, again) -SehKy

For what it is worth to you... What I do in these situations:
(1) remove the 'bad drive '; (2) install windows on a second hard drive I have laying around then (3) reconnect the 'bad drive' as the second drive to perform diagnostics. Windows has a very hard time performing drive maintenance on the same drive it booted from. This is a great way to repair boot sectors; repair corrupted file allocation tables; or as a last resort back up data before you scrap the drive.
I actually have a version of windows installed on a thumb drive that I can boot to. Setting up a thumb drive for booting windows is less trivial but I'll toss it out there for you if you don't have a spare hard drive laying around.

GM Impromtus.... Love It! I was in a group on the way out of Leringrad Underground we didn't expect anything out of the normal then.... WHAM. Brewmaster hit us with an amazing imprompt quest with a deep unpredictable story line. Awesome Brewmaster just awesome. He ran that thing for at least 3 hours but I was so emersed I lost track. When new players showed up on the server...wham they were part of the story too. -Madd

Wow, thanks everyone for all the responses and discussion. I did not anticipate so much activity from my simple question.
I am actually quite satisfied with SehKy's 'power' and really was thinking about how to make it more 'interesting', honest. The magic arrows produced by all AA feats do not visually appear very magical IMO.. they visually look like normal arrows that turn or otherwise behave magically. They are actually hard to see. I was playing with the Hail of Arrows the other day and was thinking that the feat was cool and interesting, but I doubted that the other players I was with even noticed I used the feat.
Now if the feat used the arrows I had in my quiver (enchanted) then the visual effect would be noticeable and kind of cool and unique to AA's. Consider how Hail of Arrows visually compares to the Fire Brand Spell.
If the AA magic arrows "looked" magical then it would perhaps better tell the story.

SehKy and litch Arthenon, litch King Amal Zul, Fire Lord Zalagar Cinder
The desert in ancient times, it was Arthenon who had ventured into a deep crypt to unlock long forbidden magics. Arthenon found the long undead king Amal Zul in the vaults. From the time shortly after that of the dragons King Amal Zul was worshipped as a God King among his primitive people...
Eager for power and knowledge Arthnon made a pact with the undead King Amal Zul, to trade places and assume his knowledge, take his kingdom from him and thus Amal Zul tricked Arthenon, freeing Amal Zul from his prison and placing Arthenon in his place in a ruin beneath he sands.
With Jillian and Riley's help, SehKy set Arthenon to rest. The Curse then began to pull back Amal Zul from the realm of another plane. Seers possessed by dark spirits heralded his coming. Seers of a third eye tattoo emblazoned on their foreheads . Amal Zul sought to come into the realm and rule it anew. The beings of the planes of the elements too were set free and the Fire Lord Zalagar Cinder attempted to invade, but was defeated in single combat by Riley Alexander.
With that threat thwarted, Amal Zul still beckoned from beyond the realms, trying to be reborn with dread artifacts: the Censor of Binding; the Tome of Knowledge and the Quill of Remaking. The Tome of Knowledge was self-aware, could talk, cast spells, and fly. SehKy shot it down multiple times during escape attempts by the Tome. Sehky delivered the Censor of Binding; the Tome of Knowledge and the Quill of Remaking to the Lucinda Temple in Spellgard for destruction, effectively sealing Amal Zul in his dimension; preventing him from being reborn.
By silencing the Tome of Knowledge, the word of the ancient king of undead, another song was ready to be sung. It lay dormant too, until the act of the Rekindler (Storold repairing dead magic areas of Layonara).
Talaitha the Gypsy: *daughters of Doom and Darkness, Sons of spiders and spite; I have revealed all that is to be allowed for now. Warn the others of the coming tide. As you have thwarted all tides, darkness rises and light shall shine down upon it to defeat it again.

The Rekindler: Storold

*Visited the Prunilla Temple then the Azattan Temple with Ferrit and Storold after they were attacked by a dark elf and spiders. They witnessed a man murdered and his soul devoured.*
The murdered man was a doomsayer and warned of "a coming darkness... a female god whose name is unknown is guiding the dark elves to the surface"
Dark Elven Note Ferrit Found on the assassin: "This one can see! Others are like him. Root them out or they wil spoil out plans... Use these tools of the Dark Mother and he shall be silenced forever. Watch him and all he speaks to. They must be blind to the comming darkness"
Priestess of Prunella warned of a dark elf invasion coming from the Rift.
Ferrit, Storold, Sophia (npc), Rose and Lola may be targeted ....

Good night you two *smiles brightly leading Jil and the others out under the stars listening to Jil's quiet whispering as they walk*

*gives Cord a curious look then smiles at Tyillaan proudly, eyes full of hope then looks to the Nave* Talia, with your leave, we will make our way to find accommodations. Perhaps we will find a place to gaze at the stars and a violinist to play for us while we sleep. *Glances at Andrew, with eyes that may be teasing. While SehKy waits for Talia's reply, he offers his arm to Jil*
