I don't mind people asking why I handled things the way I did.
I'm actually really glad to see you here debating this spell with Jeff, Jaid.
Jeff's decision is final...in his game, but I always enjoy it when you take on SJ fans with logic and stuff.
well, in this case, i'm not really discussing SJ stuff for the most part. another example of something i could bring up (though this could be optional rules or house rules) is that normally you can't dual-wield two weapons of the same size, unless they're both daggers. normally one has to be bigger than the other.
of course, then some guy wrote a book about a drow that dual-wields scimitars, and suddenly it was all like "oh yeah, well, i mean, when we said you couldn't do that, we really just mean that you can't do that unless you're a drow", and then they probably wound up writing an optional rule in a sourcebook somewhere (sorta like how originally in the core books, only single-classed fighters can specialize, but the ability was so popular it spread to all warriors and a number of non-warrior kits... i don't know if your ranger is actually "breaking the rules" or just using an optional rule i haven't considered
but anyways, main point: whether or not you can dual-wield longswords isn't really bringing up anything interesting about spelljammer in particular, or really anything all that interesting about D&D in general.
i do have something on a spelljammer theme i've been thinking about lately (not directly related to aulddragon's game, though i suppose it is tangentially related to some extent). not sure what i want to do with it. i might just let it sit in my head for a bit longer
