It doesn't connect with anything else, which is structurally very poor. Why is that necessary? The original cloak of elvenkind is designed to be equipped and used by everyone across every tier of power; it feels more like a magical artifact and less like another narrowly useful, quickly obsolete piece of equipment. I understand that this approach feels unsatisfying when you expect a system's parts to click together from every direction, but it works within the more arbitrary (plus compartmentalized) nature of AD&D 2e. Playing to the system's strengths is key to one's enjoyment. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
